<I>'Iron Chef' themed events mix food and fun.</I>
1. SWEET THEMES: Fun themes guests will enjoy

To create an exciting, interactive “Iron Chef” theme (see photo), design centerpieces featuring ikebana-style palm stalks placed in a wok filled with long-grain rice. Accent centerpieces with small, seaweed-wrapped candles set in square plates filled with soy sauce. Add tabletop props such as samurai swords, geisha fans and plastic sumo bellies, and send guests home with favors including sake cups, lacquered chopsticks and wind-up “walking sushi” toys.

For a '60s theme event, use scaffolding as anchors for large fabric swags and oversized graphics. Ultraviolet paint can make fabric stand out, as can a wash of amber lighting. Have Day-Glo items such as buttons, glow sticks and decals on tables for attendees to play with.
