Prom decoration for a memorable evening
Is your prom coming up soon? Generally speaking, obtaining a high school diploma or higher is certainly an event that deserves to be marked. For this purpose, today, we are going across the Atlantic to inspire you to organize an American style end of year party! And for it to be successful, we will obviously focus on its decoration.
As we have just indicated above, the prom decoration is not only reserved for the end of the school year holidays! It is an idea that you can use to organize your birthday, the office party or your wedding! But just before we provide you with all of our super quirky prom decoration ideas, there are a few little things we absolutely need to cover!
If you haven't organized any big events yet, know that for your party to live up to its name, no aspect should be overlooked! But what is the prom that we've seen and watched dozens of times on TV? Marking the end of school or graduate studies, the ball represents an event that is a bit like Valentine's Day. In other words, you only have two options: either you love him madly or you hate him.
For an American prom decoration, we take care of the smallest details
The first step in getting off to a good start is determining where your party will take place. But that's not all! All the other little details, such as the dance floor, the DJ place, the bar, the buffet and the space for the tables, must also be planned. So, in that case, what could make more sense than putting on your prom in a school gym? Thus, you will considerably facilitate your task in terms of arrangement.
As you know, for every self-respecting party, the theme is essential. Therefore, choosing a good concept for your prom will help you get a coherent overall vision for the decor, the menu, the invitations and, of course, for your outfit! While your high school or college colors are perfectly acceptable for your themed party, you can also go for something more original. So go ahead and get inspiration from your favorite movies. Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, The Great Gatsby, Pretty Little Liars… the possibilities are many.
Once your theme has been chosen, let's move on to the prom decoration. If the idea of having your party in the school gymnasium appeals to you, it is essential to start with the lighting! So, what could be better than a decoration in paper lanterns? Chic and timeless, it will easily find its place indoors and outdoors. And to make the ambiance even brighter and more romantic, you can add a few fairy lights without any problem.
The photo corner, an essential element for every prom decoration
Moreover, for those of you who want to invest a little more in their prom decoration, such an event can be the perfect opportunity to opt for an arbor or a bow that will make a magnificent photo corner! So you and all your guests will be able to immortalize your evening in a very original way! And to make your prints even more memorable, don't forget to have fun in front of the lens. For this purpose, bet on some playful accessories to place in front of your "photo-booth" or on the tables. These gadgets are normally found in joke and trick shops. So, do not hesitate and give free rein to your creativity!
Besides the fun photo corner, you can plan other interesting activities, such as various competitions, to surprise and entertain the guests. For an ending worthy of the name, you can throw some flying lanterns. Original and super fun, they are made of natural materials and therefore do not risk polluting the surroundings!
No prom decoration without the balloons
To brighten up the atmosphere of your D-Day, there is nothing like the must-have balloons. Without these, your prom decoration will be very sad! Colorful, printed with dots or filled with confetti, they are part of every good party that respects itself. You can hang them in the middle of the room, on the outer corners of your sideboard or even above each table. Cleverly arranged, the giant balloons create a pretty aisle welcoming your guests!
And speaking of the essentials, your decor will not be complete without a buffet. Whether sweet or savory, for a birthday or for a real prom, it is original, practical and therefore should not be neglected! The same goes for the refreshment area. Pie displays, vintage glasses, balloons, ribbons and flowers - all our ideas will only make this little element of your decor even more chic!
Develop your invitations to match your prom decoration
After estimating the exact number of your guests, it's time to put the focus on the invitations. And logically, each invitation corresponds to a theme and therefore a dress code. So, if you are going to organize a "Great Gatsby" style prom, it is important that the guests be notified in advance. And to make it even easier for you, make your invitations a real entry ticket!
