When planning a fancy themed party event it can be difficult to come up with some good ideas. When going with a letter theme, such as letter S costume ideas, you get a base to start looking for ideas. Coming up with a good base letter to start with could be done by, your first name, your initials, or whatever suits your fancy.
When you are, setting up a letter dress up party you need to pick a theme everyone will enjoy. Costumes starting with S are actually quite popular, you just need to be in the right state of mind. For example, Samurai are quite popular kids costumes during halloween already, so they will be easy for your guests to find. Putting some adult costumes together that fit the theme could be a little more tricky and require some imagination. With a little information on the topic, they should have an easy time coming up with costume ideas of their own.
Since information is key to any theme party, your invitation should provide some information. For example, if you plan on going with a St Valentine party, give some information on St Valentine and why there is a holiday about him. Then give a few costume ideas, but not too many, hardly anyone will want to copy your ideas. This information could be presented in a little pamphlet with the invitations, or you could just send the information through e-mail.
An issue with most theme parties is the price for the costumes. What I mean by this is that some people will go all out and spend a lot of money on their fancy dress costumes and others will just throw something together. This can lead some people to feel self conscious about their costume and want to leave sooner. This is usually only an issue if not everyone knows each other well enough at your party, but still an issue that's easy to alleviate. In the invitation, set a budget on the costume. Don't make this sound like a rule though, people hate rules in parties, make it sound like a game. Something like "See who can make the best costume with a $20 budget." and see the creativity your guests bring to the party.
Don't forget to decorate your place to fit the theme! When you are going to have a party about a Saloon and everyone will be dressing up as cowboys, the setting should fit the theme. Put up some paper saloon doors and board up the windows. These decorations will really liven things up and cause a lot of people to get into the theme.
Another fun idea for your S dress up party is to use themed foods also. If you have a Spiderman party, maybe you could get some decorated spider cookies, or even a Spiderman cake. Themed snacks can take a little while to think of, but really bring a party together when done right.
