Have you thrown a party lately? Perhaps you splurged on a beautiful new living room set and can't wait to show it off to your friends and family.

Or maybe, it's just been way too long since you have had any kind of social gatherings at your abode and you're itching to let loose in the comfort of your own home.

Rather than just throw your typical fete, why not think outside the box by hosting a theme party.

Here are 5 fun party themes worth considering.

Mad Men Party

Ever wonder what it would be like to go back in time to the 60's? With the hit show Mad Men all the rage, why not find out? Set the dress code for black suits and ties for the gents and retro dresses for the ladies. You could set up a martini bar and serve vodka gimlets, dirty martinis etc.

And let's not forget Don Draper's signature cocktail – an old fashioned with a swizzle stick and a cherry. For appetizers, turn your oven into a time machine by whipping up some pigs in a blanket, accompanied by nuts n' bolts, shrimp cocktail and devilled eggs. And what's a party without games like Twister, The Game of Life or Charades?

If your crowd likes to cut a rug, clear a spot in your living room for an impromptu dance party. As Betty Draper says "Only boring people are bored!"

Your friends will go home with a smile on their face and great memories of your party that will be talked about for months.

Murder Mystery Party

While Murder Mystery Parties were all the rage in the 80s', a great time never goes out of style. There are Murder Mystery kits you can purchase online or on the shelf, which will explain all you need to know to make your party a success. Only invite a specific number fun friends to match the size of the group you will require and have them dress for their specific part. If you want to make it a dinner party, you can serve a great meal from one the countries of where the murder scene is set and reveal clues of the murder in between courses. At the end of the evening, the guest who can predict the murderer will go home with a prize.

Hawaiian Luau

Now that we are starting to see the sun again and the weather is warming up, why not throw an unforgettable Hawaiian party? Have your friends dress up in either grass skirts or floral dresses for the ladies and floral print shirts and long shorts for the guys. Greet your guests at the door with a colourful lay and a Mai tai. To set the scene,make sure to have Don Ho singing 'Tiny Bubbles' on your playlist.

Decor is key in setting a tropical scene. Have some tiki torches burning, or even decorative patio lanterns hanging all around. Tropical assorted fruit on a platter makes a bright, attractive centerpiece for your table. Tall silk plants will also turn your back yard into an island oasis. For refreshments or dinner, depending on your party, you could serve ham and pineapple on skewers, grilled mahi mahi or pork on the barbeque. For drinks, whip up some pina-colodas or blue Hawaiians -- just don't forget the colourful umbrellas. Have a few hula hoops laying around for the enthusiastic party goers who really know how to have a great time.

Pajama Party

If you've always wanted to throw a cozy pajama party, complete with chick flicks and some delicious munchies, what's stopping you? Get everyone to show up in their PJ's and bring along their favourite sappy movie. While guests feast their eyes on the small screen,they can dine on an array of movie-worthy appy's – perhaps a simple antipasto platter complete with assorted cheese, meats, olives, crackers, etc. Alternatively, you could keep it really simple and serve popcorn, chip's n dip and Milk Duds.With all that salty food partygoers will want to wet their whistle – for a beverage, a tropical fruit punch is always refreshing or perhaps a couple bottles of wine. Throw some soft, comfy blankets and pillows around on your fabulous new couch and enjoy a nice relaxing evening with your girlfriends.

The next time you're itching to entertain and are wondering how to 'wow' your friends, keep these four fun ideas in mind. Ready, set, party!
