As prom is creeping up quickly behind us, it’s time to look at the top 5 most common prom themes.
Taken from About Style.com, they give us some of the most popular themes they have seen throughout prom history.
1) Under The Sea :
On a dancefloor filled with sparkling “oceans,” colorful fish, and other intricate underwater wonders, you might mistake your prom dress for a mermaid fin and start going by alter-ego Ariel.
2) Walk of Fame :
Debuting your gorgeous dress on a red carpet will make you feel like an A-list celebrity. Cover the floor with “walk of fame” stars featuring the names of the senior class. A red carpet will complete this Hollywood-inspired prom theme.
3) A Starry Night :
The classic romance of a celestial theme is a perennial prom favorite. Though this is an easy prom theme to pull off – simply decorate with loads of metallic stars and strands of twinkly lights – this romantic theme packs a glamorous punch. Are you sick of your date’s dance moves? Just wish upon a star.
4) Hawaiian Luau :
What prom outfit wouldn’t be improved with a bright, frilly lei? Add “palm trees” and tropical flower arrangements, then ask the DJ toss on a few luau-worthy tracks – so much fun to dance to in your prom night finery.
5) An Evening in Paris:
The City of Love is always popular for romantic prom themes. A faux Eiffel Tower might sound like quite an endeavor, but the effect is well worth it. Grab a few talented art student to paint the landmark, then finish off with scenic “trees” and romantic park benches.
