Couples in history is one great option. This choice allows each duo to choose a famous pair to dress like. The room should be decorated to reflect the different eras that are represented by the theme. An alternative to this is having everyone show up as a famous or celebrity couple. Guests can even walk down a red carpet upon arrival.
A popular and fun idea is the Hawaiian Luau. This prom may be either inside or outdoors and offers many great decor ideas. Set up a room full of tiki torches and small tables. Have a grass hut where pictures are taken and supply leis to couples as they arrive. A game of limbo should definitely be implemented into the evening.
Famous nursery rhyme and storybook characters is another wonderful choice. This allows the students to explore their inner child and recreate a favorite tale. The Little Mermaid, Mother Goose and even Tinker Bell are all options for the affair.
Around the world is a theme that everyone will love. The entire room can be decorated to represent different regions. Choose one specific area such as France or China. Serve foods that represent these destinations. Create airline tickets for the students to get in and pictures that look like passports. The possibilities are endless with this idea.
A sock hop is another fun option. Kids can dress in clothing and hairstyles that represent the fifties. Add music from the era to make the night truly authentic. Another fabulous era themed idea is the eighties. This should be complete with leg warmers, neon makeup and plenty of hair gel. The twenties and thirties are other fabulous times to consider.
Casino night is always a hit with the kids. Decorate the entire room to look like a Vegas casino. Provide prizes for students who win big at games. Colors should be silver and gold.
Winter wonderland is a classic theme. Hang snowflakes from the ceiling and put packing peanuts in bags that are released from above at the end of the night. It will look as if it is snowing. Colors that work well with this theme include blue, silver and white. Use cobalt colored lighting to create a cold weather atmosphere.
A prom theme may seem difficult to choose, but the fact is that it is really quite simple. Just consider several choices and have a school vote to ensure that everyone has what they want. The entire night will turn out great and everyone is sure to have the time of their life. After all, it is the last big party before many students graduate.
