If you’re planning on joining a sorority, bid day might just be one of the most exciting days during your first few weeks of college! Bid day is the day where you open up your envelop (or, bid) and see which sorority house you ended up with. Usually, after the opening of the envelopes, you run with your new sisters to your house, which is so fun and exciting. The moment you get to your house, the girls who are already in the house set up a theme party to celebrate! The girls will dress up and decorate the house according to said chosen theme. If you are in a sorority and are looking for some cute themes for your next bid day, here are a few themes that your sorority sisters will be sure to love!
1. Color Theme
All sororities have their own colors—not just on that campus, but nationally. For example, Kappa Kappa Gamma is light blue and dark blue, Kappa Delta is Green, and Zeta Tau Alpha is a royal blue. It can be so fun to turn your bid day party into your sorority’s color scheme. Decorate the house in the colors of your sorority and have everyone dress up in that color. This is a great way to welcome all your new sisters and have them join the sisterhood.
2. Space Jam Theme
I’ve seen other sororities doing Space Jam themes, and I am here for it! This is such a cute idea that will impress your new sisters. You can get creative with this and add your sorority’s name to the space jams logo. You can get it printed on shirts or even make a sign. Have all your sisters dress up in the theme and take cute pics together! This is a unique theme that you and your sisters will have so much fun with.
3. Cowgirl Themes
It’s time to break out your cowgirl hat and boots because this theme is starting to take over, and we couldn’t be happier! This theme adds a cute southern touch to your bid day festivities. You can take this theme and make it your own with signs saying the name of your sorority and decorating the house.
3. Race Car Theme
This bid day theme is getting more popular as the years go on. I have been seeing so many sororities doing this theme and they all come out so cute! Dress up in black and white checkers and add some red accessories for the best outfit! You can decorate the house in similar colors and create the best theme yet!
4. Football Theme
Is your college a huge football school? If so, a football theme might be a perfect idea! Design shirts that show your sorority name in the NFL logo and put some eyeblack on! This is a great way to decorate in a fun and creative way. Out of all the bid day themes, this one might win overall best! You will be able to capture the cutest pictures with this theme.
You may have already hopped on the recent cheetah print trend, but if you haven’t, this is a great idea for a bid day theme! You can get so creative with your outfits and style, and decorate your house with cheetah print signs and accents. This trend has been so popular lately, so why not turn it into one of the best bid day themes yet!?
Tie-dye has become so popular lately and it’s a trend I personally love! Why not turn this trend into your next bid day theme? Get matching tie-dye tank tops for all of your sisters and get creative with the decorations. Your new sisters will be sure to adore this theme!
7. 70s Theme
Take it back to the disco age with a 70s bid day theme! Break out your best pair of flare jeans and get ready to rock the best theme yet. You and your sisters can set the house up with disco balls and bright colors for cute decor! Throw some braids in your har with a fun pair of sunglasses and you’re all set! This is one of the best bid day themes out there.
8. Astroworld Theme
If you and your sisters want to be super original and get creative this bid day, Astroworld is the perfect theme! Turn your sorority name into the logo and make it your own! I have seen “Zetaworld,” and I think it is the cutest idea. Put this name in the same font as “Astroworld,” and get it copied onto a sign or shirt. This is so creative and your new sisters will absolutely love it!
9. Rock ‘N’ Roll
Turn on your creative switches and go for a rock ‘n’ roll theme! We all love a good oversized band tee, so why not customize it to be your sorority name? Get creative with this theme and paint some stars or apply glitter on your face for a cute touch. With black leather pants or a skirt, you can own this look! You can even decorate your letters to match the theme for the perfect set up. This is one of the most fun bid day themes you can have!
10. Olympic Theme
With an Olympic bid day theme, you can get very creative with the sayings you write on a sign. For example, you can write, “bringing home the gold” or “always going for the gold.” This is a fun way to welcome your new sisters to the house. Make custom shirts to match the theme and maybe decorate your house with some torches, too. Use this theme for a great way to make your new sisters feel welcome and special.
11. New Kids On The Block Theme
This theme is definitely spot on for the event. Since all of your new sisters will be officially joining the sorority, they really are the new kids on the block! Decorate your house with a cute sign and balloons to welcome the new bids. Have your sisters wear matching shirts and colorful hats in order to have the best matching outfits!
12. Coachella Theme
What sounds more fun than a Coachella theme? Coachella’s iconic logo can be turned into your sororities bid day theme! You can even hand out special VIP passes to your new sisters to make them feel welcomed in their new house. This is a theme that will not disappoint!
13. Space Theme
Get your shiniest shorts and leggings ready because this space theme is going to be anything but ordinary. Space bid day themes are so fun to have, especially since girls can get creative with their out-of-this-world outfits and decorations. Put your hair up in two little buns, throw on some antennas, and add some glitter! Voila, you’re all set for this theme. Metallic decorations and signs will add the perfect space vibes for this theme, too.

What better way to kick off the first day with your new sisters than having a slumber party themed bid day? Wear your cutest pair of pajamas and get ready to have a blast with your sisters.
