Song for the day: Slow Hands by Niall Horan
Because where did this talent come from?? I love it!
So here we go.
1// A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R R Martin.
I feel like I’m cheating here because I attended a GOT party a couple of years ago and it was AMAZING. My friend baked cakes with all the house crests on, and we had a Joffrey piñata, which was seriously the most fun I’ve ever had hitting a papier-mâché balloon.
2// The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Just imagine a ballroom draped in black, white and red with a circus-y striped theme and magic shows everywhere. And tents with clocks and clouds and ice… I want this now please.
3// The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
The Romeo and Juliet-esque tale of rival circus gangs who appear as mermaids and fairies respectively – how could it not lend itself to a party theme? Pick your team and go!
4// Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol.
This is probably a very overdone theme but I still love the idea of a Wonderland backdrop! Looking glasses and playing cards everywhere! My undergrad university did this theme for one of its End of Year Balls and honestly it was so magical!
5// Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor
Ok, so this is technically a podcast, but can you just imagine playing those podcasts as the radio whilst there are five-headed dragons and old ladies in houses and a bowling alley with a secret world underneath it? Just me?
Which books do you think would make amazing party themes?
