Top Themes for a Fancy Dress Birthday Party, Whatever the Age

You don’t have to be a child to enjoy the fun of fancy dress, as many a grown adult will agree.
 Plenty of people, of all ages, will grasp the opportunity to dress up with both hands, fully committing themselves to the outfit and making the most of their budget and creativity.
If you have been invited to a fancy dress birthday party, or your child has, don’t worry – there are plenty of options for costumes available both online and on the high street. 

Alternatively, if you’re the host of the fancy dress themed birthday, there’s a variety of awesome themes waiting for you to use! Plus, you don’t have to worry about spending too much on an outfit if you don’t have the funds.
Fancy Dress from George at Asda as well as various other stores, is extensive and affordable, so if you’re a little strapped for cash, you won’t be strapped for an outfit too.

Here are some great themes for you to consider, no matter what the age of the birthday boy or girl:


From their first birthday, the possibility for a fancy dress party is there. While the birthday boy or girl won’t know what’s happening, just think of the pictures that they will be able to look back on when they’re older! Ask the grown up attendees to join in the fun and dress up too and complement the theme with some partyware that is inkeeping with your choice.
From superheroes to Monsters Inc., the possibilities are endless. 

Plus, you can find some great little outfits at George to get you started, including this awesome Sully baby outfit for super cuteness factor!!

As kids grow, their love of fancy dress heightens and they’ll be more inclined to ask for a particular theme. From Toy Story and Star Wars to princesses and knights, there are plenty of options available.

Bigger Kids

As they reach their teenage years, they may think that they’re beyond dressing up in fancy dress, but that shouldn’t be the case. Tweens would love a Harry Potter themed party, while slightly older teens might like something that’s horror or gore-based, whether it’s Halloween season or not!


This is where the fun really begins. There are so many different themes that would suit a birthday party or night out, giving adults the chance to let go and have fun. From an 80s or 90s theme, to superheroes, cops and robbers and Smurfs, the possibilities are endless.
If you’re after a theme that can incorporate fancy dress while also being elegant, consider 1920s or 1940s styling, complete with flapper dresses, cigarette holders and stylish suits.

Whatever theme you settle on, don’t underestimate the fun of fancy dress. If you’re planning a birthday party for someone, no matter how old they are, or you’re considering having one yourself for your next celebration, give guests an idea of what to dress up as and let their imaginations run wild for a brilliant bash to remember!

We have bought a lot of dress up costumes from Asda for our children, they often have a fantastic range of both girls and boys clothes and they are good quality and have lasted for years. They look amazing and are always priced very reasonable.

Do your kids enjoy dress up? Who are their favourite characters?
