1. Pick The Perfect Theme
When you’re starting out with your nerd party plan, it’s nice to have a starting off point. A theme can make it much easier to plan your party with ease! Let’s go through some of the best nerd party theme ideas to try out for your party:
- Star Wars
- Star Trek
- Dungeons and Dragons
- The Legend of Zelda
- World of Warcraft
- Marvel or DC Superheroes
- Doctor Who
- Pokemon, Digimon, or Beyblade
- Game of Thrones
- Sailor Moon
- Survivor and other competitive reality tv shows
- Settlers of Catan
Of course, if these don’t appeal to you, there are tons of other great nerd party theme ideas out there. Just choose a theme that you and your guests will love
2. Get Some Nerdy Snacks and Drinks
Your guests will need to be fed, right? You’ll need to have the top nerdy foods and drinks to make the event perfect. For star wars fans who are of-age, why not try out a Yoda cocktail!
Or, make some of the iconic foods or drinks from your favorite nerdy books or movies, like Harry Potter’s Butterbeer or the Lemas Bread from Lord of the Rings. Or, if you want to get a little more simple, you can just decorate your cupcakes or cakes with images from your favorite pieces of pop culture, like Spiderman or Toy Story.
And of course, what nerd party is complete without Nerds candies?
3. Put On A Costumes
Making your party a fun costume party is a great way to add a fun nerdy feel to your party. You can either pick a nerdy theme for your costume party, or you can let your guests show off their favorite geeky interests.
You can even hand out prizes for the best or most unusual costumes at the party so that everyone will be motivated to bring their A-Game to the costume party.
4. Plan Some Activities
If you’re holding the party at your own home, you can plan many different nerdy activities to take your party to the next level. For example, you can find the most niche board games at the thrift store so that you and your friends can learn an exciting new game together.
Or, you can plan a nerdy-themed scavenger hunt so that you all can have a more active activity to try out during the party. You could even create a bingo game based around your favorite nerdy theme. And, of course, if you and your guests are of age, drinking games are always a great option!
5. Have a Screener
While you’re having a nerdy party, why not take it to the next level and show your favorite nerdy movies or tv shows during the party! If you’re a nerd for horror movies, have a scary movie marathon. If you’re into manga and/or anime, show off some of your favorite old cartoon series.
The best part about having a screening party is that it’s easily customized to your interests, so the world is your oyster!
6. Make Your Own Decorations
While you can always buy the perfect nerdy decorations from your local party store, you can also make your own decorations so you can make sure that your decorations are perfect for the theme.
If you are a comic book fan, for example, you can make up the best decorations from pages of old comic books (you can use the funny pages from the newspaper if you’d rather keep your comic books in mint condition). Or, create your own little baby Yodas to hang all about your house!
There are so many options out there for you to try out when it comes to decorating for a nerdy birthday party, so just experiment to find out what you like best.
7. Pick The Perfect Invitations
Sending out great invitations can really help set the mood for your party. You can either send physical paper invitations or stick to e-vites to help preserve our environment. Your invitations should proudly declare the theme of your party, what you’re celebrating, and if the guests need to dress up or bring everything.
That way, everyone will know what to expect and no one will be caught off guard by any aspect of your party!
8. Go All Out With Video Games
Are you a fan of the old-school arcades? Do you love video games? Why don’t you book an arcade party! That way, you and your friends will have the run of the place, to play whatever amazing old-school arcade games they have available.
If your budget isn’t quite that big, you can bring the concept to your own home. Have your friends bring their own consoles over, and you can set up gaming stations throughout your house so that everyone will be able to try out different games and take turns trying out games they may have never played before.
It’s a great way to experiment and have fun during your party!
