Frat Party Themes

Updated April 17, 2017

It is a long-standing tradition for college fraternities to throw themed parties. Oftentimes, parties are date parties or are thrown in conjunction with a sorority. For individuals looking for inspiration on what kind of themed frat party to throw, there are several common themes to choose from, such as a toga party, a decades party, a luau, and even a biker-themed party.

Toga Party

Throw a toga party where attendees can easily make their togas from white bed sheets. Additionally, you can accentuate your costume with a laurel leaf crown. As for music, play the soundtrack from the movie "Animal House". Songs such as "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen and "You Make Me Wanna Shout" by Otis Day and the Knights are a must for any toga party.

Decades Party

Another frat party theme is a decades party. At a decades party, guests dress up in costumes that are relevant to a particular decade. For example, if you pick the 70s, mimic fashions from movies like "Saturday Night Fever," with silk shirts, double knit trousers and platform shoes. Women can wear long sleeveless dresses from that era. Design a music playlist with music from that particular decade.

Hawaiian Luau Party

Have your guests come decked out in hula skirts and coconut shell bras. When the guests arrive, keep leis on hand to distribute as a welcome gift. To stick with true Hawaiian party tradition, roast a pig on a rotisserie over an open fire.

Biker-Themed Party

Invite your guests to an evening of raucous biker-themed fun. Girls can dress up in their favourite pair of tight Levi's, a black choker and boots. Both guys and gals can wear leather vests and bandannas. Hang some chains from your pockets. Heavy rock and roll music provides a biker-themed musical backdrop.
