No matter what theme you have selected, there are some basic decorations that every prom needs. From streamers to lights to guest favors, decorating a prom is all about the details. Many prom decorating ideas are inexpensive and easy to create.
Things You'll Need
- Christmas lights
- Helium tank
- Floral centerpiece
Use plenty of lights. Strands of Christmas lights are ideal for a prom. They provide a soft, subtle glow that mimics a starry night that's perfect for a night of romance.
Hang colorful streamers from the ceiling. Streamers, a mainstay of proms of yesteryear, are an inexpensive way to ad color and texture to a prom decor.
Decorate with plenty of balloons. Like streamers, bouquets of floating balloons add a bold punch of color and make an ordinary occasion special.
Cover the tables with color coordinated tablecloths. Linen is preferable, but paper is usually more budget friendly.
Wrap colored tulle around the Christmas lights for a soft, romantic look. Tulle can also be used as bunting around tables, draped over doorways or be tied to chair backs.
Sprinkle tables with glittering confetti and add a simple floral centerpiece.
Hang up a large banner with the class year prom theme written on it. It can be made either professionally or an artistic student can make one with recycled white sheets.
Tips & Warnings
- Rent a helium tank and assign a couple of students the task of filling balloons and tying them with ribbon streamers. It will be cheaper than buying already filled balloons.
