Blog hosted by seventeen.com


Moulin Rouge

Yes, Paris is a classic prom theme, but why not mix it up by making the theme Moulin Rouge. Make sure to get lots and lots of feathers, some windmills for photo ops, and drape the whole room in red. Your classmates will feel like they traveled back in time.


Country

Grab all the hay bales and wild flowers you can find for your country themed prom. The whole room will look super rustic and cozy. Bonus points if you can actually have the event in a barn.


Enchanted Forest

The key to this theme is green, green, and more green! Make your prom venue look like a gorgeous magical forest with moss-covered floors and vines hanging from the ceiling. It should look like a fairy could fly in at any moment.


Decades

Dance your way through the decades with this super cute prom theme. The decorations will be so colorful and there will be tons of photo opportunities throughout the night. Of course, a disco ball is a MUST for this theme.


Dripping in Luxury

Make your classmates feel like royalty for a night with this luxurious gold and diamonds theme. Really go all out with the gold color scheme, and don't skimp on all of those fake diamonds.


Fire and Ice

This prom theme is the crashing of two worlds. Asks your guests to choose a side: fire or ice, and see what theme-inspired outfits they show up to party with. You'll probably want to get some appropriate decor too, like these icy blue flames.


Gothic Castle

Halloween may be months away, but that doesn't mean your prom night can't be spooky fabulous. Make your prom glamorous, yet totally creepy with a mystery castle theme. To bring the idea to life, you'll need gothic decor like candlebras, chandeliers, dusty books and some castle cutouts like this one.


Around the World

Tell your guests to get their passports ready because they'll need a plane to get to this prom. The prom attendees will be able to travel the globe in just one night with this around-the-world theme. One cool idea is to have different stations where guests can pick up finger foods of different worldly cuisines. Don't forget to decorate with travel-related items like this free-standing globe to make the theme feel complete.


Safari

Take your guests on an adventure by making your prom safari-themed. You'll need lots of greenery and a statement piece like this wild arch cutout to set this theme in motion. Your guests will be able to experience the thrill of majestic animals like lions and panthers without getting too close for comfort.


Disco Fever

Make your prom night one to remember by taking your guests back in time to the era of disco. Your guests will be dancing the night away under disco balls and on top of colorful floor panels. Make your theme really authentic by asking people to come dressed wearing 70's attire.


Out of This World

Prom should make you feel out of this world, hence this incredible theme. With these bright accents and colored lights, you can't go wrong. Take this theme to a whole other level by hanging planets and rings overhead — you can thank us later.


Neon Lights

It's so easy to stick with the usual tradition prom colors like gold, white, or black, but make your night stand out with a neon theme. The color changing columns will definitely be a stand out and leave people wishing they could take one home with them.


Tropical Nights

If you want to feel like you're ~on an island~ then you should totally consider this theme. The vivid color palette and palm tree accents give the ultimate beachy vibes — who wouldn't want to feel like they're on vacation during prom?


Comic Book

Even Peter Parker got to go to his prom when he was Spiderman. Have everyone be a hero for a night with this theme that will definitely set your school apart from the others. Use these comic book bubble signs to give people the chance to add a personalized touch to their photos.


Alice In Wonderland

With its crazy setting and kooky characters, an Alice In Wonderland theme is the perf way to create a memorable prom. Recreate the Mad Hatter tea party scene with twinkling lights, Mad Hatter centerpieces, a life-sized rabbit, and crazy signs all over the place. Set up a garden wall with flowers for everyone to take pics in front of.


Mardi Gras

Give your venue a French Quarter feel and channel the fun of Mardi Gras. It's easy to find decorations to fit the theme — just stock up on colorful beads, balloons, confetti, and noise makers. To really take things next-level, decorate each table with beads and hang yellow, green, and purple lanterns from the ceiling. Dress up tables with boas, purple accents and drama masks that can double as photo booth props.


Casino

The best part about this theme is that it ensures that anyone who doesn't feel like dancing can still have fun. For a super cool entrance, make an arch in the shape of a Russian roulette board. You can also set up mock poker and different game tables, and create fun centerpieces by filling a glass with colorful dice and cards.


Candyland

Candy, candy, and more candy is what you'll need for this theme. Pretty awesome, right? Bright colored candy wrappers, lollipops, and other sweet treats will create a cheery, fun setting for your prom — the brighter the better! Construct life-size candy to use as an entrance and hand out giant lollipops as favors.


Under The Sea

When it comes to prom themes, Under The Sea is a classic that's been around since your parents and even their parents were in high school! The concept's stuck around so long because it's fun and lends itself to awesome decorations. Create a balloon arch at the entrance and attach fish figurines, and dress up the tables with faux starfish and seashells.


Disney Movie

Did your entire year LOVE "Frozen"? Or maybe your classmates were obsessed with Disney princesses in general? Do a Disney-themed prom for the most epic night ever, featuring your BFFs dressed like IRL princes and princesses.
