Other Ideas

You can also base a theme around a country such as Australia, Nepal, Japan, Kenya, China, New Zealand, France, Brazil, United Kingdom, India etc.

Or a specific time period 1920s, 1960s etc

Or you can base a theme around books, tv shows or movies but be sure they are ones most if not all your participants are familiar with.
