Steampunk Party Theme

Steampunk-main-image

Steampunk blends history, science fiction, and fantasy to create a world with an aesthetic inspired by steam-powered machinery from the 19th century. It incorporates elements of Victorian England and the American Wild West, and often depicts a post-apocolyptic future.

Its play with anachronistic technologies, its wacky designs, and the way it blends the past with the future—often the way people in the 1800s imagined it—makes steampunk a unique theme that’s full of potential and lots of fun.

Take a look at these ideas for creating a steampunk party theme that will wow your guests and keep them talking about your party for a long time!

Invitations
It's never too early to get people in the mood for your party theme! Start by sending themed invitations with ample advance notice for your guests to save the date. Remember to let them know when and how to RSVP, and whether they should wear costumes or help bring the theme to life in some other way.
Signs, Banners, & Backdrops
These items are great for marking your location for your guests' convenience. They're also great for creating an immersive party theme environment and making the attendees feel welcome—which is always nice when you start getting too busy to personally greet everyone the moment they arrive.
Balloons
Balloons can do it all! Mark your party location, use them for centerpieces, or just fill your home with festive floating fun! Mylar and/or latex balloons are available for any occasion and theme. Get them blown up at the store or pick up a disposable helium tank if you want to inflate them yourself.
Scrapbooking Paper & Confetti
These products are perfect for all sorts of DIY decorations. Try wrapping containers with scrapbook paper to make themed holders for plasticware, crayons, flowers, centerpieces, etc. And confetti always adds a festive touch—even to your invitations (but use it sparingly; don't give your guests a mess)!
Home Décor
Supplemental decorations are a must for creating a compelling party theme atmosphere! They serve lots of purposes, like helping mark the location of the party and sprucing up your food and beverage stations. Small touches like these show you went the extra mile to truly bring your party theme to life.
Costumes, Themed Clothes, & Attire
What better way to get everyone into the party theme mood than to dress them up in it? Also, DIY t-shirt projects are a fantastic way to engage all your guests in a fun group activity that further immerses them in the theme and provides a cool keepsake with which to remember your fabulous party!
Food
A complete themed party calls for food that fits the bill! Whatever the theme and occasion, there are snacks, hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, meals, and desserts that go right along with it. Take a look at the easy recipes below for inspired ideas that even novice home cooks can pull off without added stress.
Food Enhancement
Enhancements are the little details that bring your party or event to the next level, they are the items that create an immersive environment. Your guests will remember the party, but they won’t be able to pinpoint what individual elements made it great.
Beverages
Yes, the drinks you serve can reinforce your party theme, too! It's just the sort of extra touch that makes your event extra special and memorable. Whether you're looking for non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverages—or both—here are some fun ways to provide pleasing party potables that fit your theme.

Labels
Bringing your party theme to life is all about paying attention to the little details. Themed labels are an example. They're also practical for identifying food and drinks and for listing ingredients as a courtesy to any guests with dietary restrictions. Give things clever names that play to your theme!
Tablescapes
Sure, serving tasty food and beverages is important, but you can really wow your guests with an impressive, beautiful table setup. It creates anticipation and makes for a memorable feature. And, when you get creative like with the ideas below, it's an excellent way to further reinforce your party theme.
Activities
Activities are a key part of keeping all your guests entertained for the duration of the party. Obviously, the age of the attendees determines what type of activities are best. For young children, providing themed coloring pages you find online and some crayons is a classic that always does the trick.
Takeaways
Everyone loves leaving with party favors or other takeaways! It's a gracious way to say “thanks for coming,” and to keep the occasion in your attendees' thoughts. Candy and cheap toys are common, so set your sights a little higher and give thoughtful or useful items that tie into your party's theme.
