Throw an Iconic Theme Party with the Help of Canal Walk



Party season is here, and we want to offer our help on how to be the hostess with the mostess! With Canal Walk Shopping Centre, you will be throwing an epic theme party in no time. Now, where do we start… 

Choosing the Theme 

The most important aspect of any theme party is setting the scene, and that means choosing a theme you know your guests will love. Do some research, which means spending two hours scrolling on Pinterest, and find the perfect theme party inspiration. Here are some suggestions:

1. 70’s, 80’s or 90’s Themed 

This is the perfect chance for you to set the scene. Choosing a decade theme means you already have an idea of what the decor, dress-up and music will be like, making setting up the rest of the party a breeze!

2. Hollywood Nights 

Have everyone dress up as their favourite Hollywood superstar and watch as they revel in the Hollywood fantasy. Lay out a red carpet, and everyone will be strutting into your party with style. 

3. Black and White 

This is one of the most simple but timeless party themes. Decor and costumes will come easy, but that does not stop the party from being the ultimate vibe! So, if you’re looking to keep it simple but still iconic, black and white is the way to go. 

4. The Lucky Letter

This theme is an all-time favourite. Have all your party guests choose a letter and have them pick a costume that starts with that letter. Make it even more fun, and have them use the first letter of their name to choose their costume. This also makes for a great ice-breaker, as you’ll have everyone trying to guess each other's names and costumes. 

Decoration Day 

Step two of an epic theme party is the decor. With decorations, it's all about making the right choices for what will fit perfectly in your home. No matter the theme, Canal Walk Shopping Centre is guaranteed to have a store to set you up for a night to remember! 

Check out The Crazy Store, where affordability meets quality. This store has enough decoration options to fill your house and the one next door. Get decor for all kinds of themes, and they also stock a wide range of costumes for kids at affordable prices. Visit and be inspired by the many different party decoration ideas!

For all things balloons and trimmings, visit Cardies. Cardies have many different balloon designs and novelty items you can use to put the final touches on your theme party. It’s the ideal store for party favours and gift shopping in Cape Town. They also have helium available in-store, ready to go! 

So gather all your decor and start setting up so you can get your party started. 

Snacks, Snacks, Snacks! 

If there’s anything you truly need at any party, it’s snacks. A party without snacks is simply not a party. Go big and buy your snacks in bulk from Game. Here, they have everything you need in terms of snacks. They even have a small selection of decor and a wide range of party supplies. From cups to party poppers, they have it all. 

For the more refined palettes, check out the range of snacks from Woolworths. Build yourself and your friends a charcuterie board with all your favourite meats and cheeses. You can also spice things up and suggest a game where all your friends bring a snack board based on the theme of the party; that way, everyone can bring their favourite snack to enjoy. 

Another great store to stock up on party snacks is Checkers. Checkers is a convenience store that has just about every snack you can think of. Grab different kinds of chips and sweets to ensure your guests don’t go hungry halfway through your bash. And don’t forget the unsung heroes of all parties, lollipops; the people love lollipops. 

Let’s Get This Party Started

Looks like you’re ready to party. All you need to do is make a killer playlist that will get the vibes going, and Canal Walk Shopping Centre will take care of all things decor, snacks and costumes. Visit the party favors and gifts shops in Cape Town.
