An Around the World theme party lets you experience some international drinks and culture without having to travel anywhere.  Decorate each room in your house with the country’s flag, favorite foods, unique items, travel brochures and posters. This is a really fun party but can be expensive for the host given all the different types of alcohol and décor you need to buy.  Have all your friends chip in a few bucks to make sure you can buy stuff to have a good time. 

Setting Up

For setup turn each room of your house into a different country from around the world. A good start is to put up countries flags and banners in each room based on the theme of that room. Then use the colors from that countries flag to decorate the room. If you or people you know have items that the country is known for then place those out and spread them around the room.  Have an Irish room with flags, decorations, shamrocks, leprechaun cutouts, and a pot of gold.  For the Mexico room decorate with green and red plus put out some beans, salsa and chips.  For a Hawaiian room bring in some plants and have some leis for people to wear.


It is perfectly fine just to have this party thrown as a kegger but to get the full experience this party is supposed to bring you should have authentic foods and/or drinks from the various countries. Having alcohol from different countries is one of the main fun parts of having this party. Everyone get to try cool drinks from all over the globe.  Many guests at your party will have never even tried some of the drinks you are giving out. You can do hard liquor drinks or to save a little money just have different beers from around the world.
