By theme I assume you mean the stationary.

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings
Value name: NewStationery
Value type: REG_EXPAND_SZ
Value: leave blank

Then use Group Policy Objects to block these toolbar and menu commands in Outlook and Word. IDs are in ():

Outlook
