Arabian Nights is an exotic and vibrant prom theme that everyone will love. Turn your venue into the Middle East with dramatic, colorful draping on the walls and ceiling to resemble a luxurious tent. By highlighting the drapes with bright colored do-it-yourself uplights, you’ll be able to create an elegant, yet fun atmosphere at an affordable price.
Once you select your color scheme, incorporate these colors at each table with tall, floral centerpieces, silk napkins, and spandex chair covers. Gold lanterns and genie lamps also make great centerpieces.
This beautiful, red gobo pattern illuminates the room like an Arabian lantern. Use more than one to light up the entrance, dance floor, or the walls.
Viva Las Vegas
Vegas is well-known for its iconic bright lights, nightlife, and casinos. Bring the Vegas lights to your prom by placing vibrant red, white, yellow, or blue uplighting around the perimeter of the room – you’ll feel like you’re on the Vegas strip!
We are inspired by the decorations at this formal event! Dice filled with red carnations make fun centerpieces and large playing cards are a creative alternative to table numbers. Some other ideas for table numbers include: famous hotels, casino games, and poker chips.
Create a club vibe at your prom by roping off a VIP lounge area. Plush couches with red, black, and white throw pillows give off a sophisticated nightclub look, especially when paired with dramatic red uplighting.
Alice in Wonderland
“We’re all mad here” over this Alice in Wonderland theme! There are so many different ideas and directions that you can run with it. For example, decorate your venue to resemble the rose garden, the mad hatter tea party, or a forest. You can also get creative and construct a rabbit hole tunnel or a garden gate entryway that leads you to the ballroom.
We love the idea of a black and white checkerboard dance floor and oversized playing cards displayed in the picture below. Vibrant yellow, blue, and pink uplighting really set the tone at this party!
Gobos are perfect for tying this theme together. The picture below displays an awesome cheshire cat gobo and the name of the event.
Travel back in time to the 18th century with a masquerade ball! Decorate the room and tables with antique chandeliers, candelabras, unique masks, and candles. Hues of deep purple, blue, red, or gold lighting also compliment this theme well.
Get classmates to look the part by hosting a contest for the best mask and reward the winner with an awesome prize! Masks are also fun props that can be used for a photo booth. Construct a backdrop for the photo booth with a pipe and drape and provide a box full of props that fit your theme.
