Put your heads together , discuss with every group member  or conduct a poll to come up with a theme that is approved by everyone in the group.

2.A great Location

If your chapter has a spacious house that can handle this epic event, it will be a great option. In case you are looking for a fresh venue make sure that the it is big enough to accommodate all the guests.

Entertainment and refreshment options need to be taken care of as well! Choose a location that matches your theme and party needs above all enhance the fun element of the party night.


If you have a meager social budget which may not cover all the expenses, you can charge a nominal ticket amount from the housemates that won’t leave them money pinched. Get everyone RSVP and sell tickets during online sign up or at the entrance of the venue.

Spare a thought at your party themes. Is it going to be cocktail party or a formal sit-down dinner, you should have ample space for the party revelers. Ensure comfortable seating arrangements and event tables. An open bar with a bartender will be a smart option for those sisters who are above the age of 21
