If you’re throwing a party for an adult, you may be searching for a fun theme that doesn’t scream out “Wow: you’re old now” or “age inappropriate”. It can be hard to find something in the middle but we’ve got good news – so keep calm and plan on. We love the idea of a “keep calm” (the popular internet saying adopted from Britain) themed party. We found some festive ideas for celebrating the calmness – and it can be adapted for any type of event (from a bridal shower to a 50th birthday). Let’s take a look at our top finds!
Consider an English Theme Because the Keep Calm theme comes from England as a way to encourage a sense of peace during wartime, it could be fun to bring some British flavor to your event. Consider using the British flag and colors for your party decorations: you can even go all out and serve tea and scones (depending upon the occasion).
Keep calm and eat cake! If you’re the cake boss of your own home – or one of your friends is – consider trying your hand at a Keep Calm themed cake. Can we say yum?!
Another super fun idea is to make a batch of basic cupcakes and decorate them with our adorable “Keep Calm & Eat Cupcakes” toppers! If you want classy results (minus the cost) – check out our themed cupcake toppers!
Want some more great ways to tie in the Keep Calm theme to your wedding, shower, birthday or graduation party? Here we go:
Pick a color (or two). Instead of ordering a bunch of custom plates and cups, buy the less costly ones in the same color. Embellish with smaller accessories that cost less – such as custom labels and cake toppers!
Use your graphics editor! We dare you to make your own invitations! We even found a “Keep Calm” meme maker so you can easily insert whatever phrase you choose! Check it out!
For an older or brainy crowd, highlight the history of the Keep Calm message over the years. Check out the Keep Calm wikipedia page for more info.
