Create your own boards and pin the ideas that most resonate with you. This way, you would be more organized and stay on top of things.
Following the theme is important when it comes to themed parties. Which better place to start than with your invitation? Follow the motif and use some catchphrases apt for the theme. If you require your guests to arrive in desired attire, let it be known in your invitation.
