Make prom one of the most memorable nights of the year with an exciting, innovative theme. Budget prom ideas are readily available online which means that you can make your one of a kind theme come together in no time without breaking the bank. Here are seven creative ideas to get you started:
- City lights. Recreate a real city or construct your own unique city and spend the night gazing upon the romantically lit skyline.
- Casino night. A casino is a perfect alternative for students who do not want to dance the entire night. Set up classic casino games and give the space a signature Vegas glow.
- Candyland. Nothing makes someone feel nostalgic like a childhood favorite board game. This theme is colorful and lighthearted. Don’t be afraid to have fun with it.
- Cinderella. A cherished classic fairy tale or Disney movie also sends students right back to their childhood in the best way possible. Who doesn’t want to feel like Cinderella at the big ball for a few hours?
- Yule Ball. Bring the magic of Harry Potter alive with fake snow, ice sculptures, Christmas trees and twinkling lights on the ceiling to create a night sky aesthetic. Have the chaperons dress up in wizard robes and serve butter beer, Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans and other classic goodies from the world of Harry Potter.
- Red carpet. Send everyone to Hollywood for the night with a staggering red carpet entrance to the prom. Fill out the space with floor stars, balloon bouquets and palm trees.
- Masquerade. Nothing makes a prom classy quite like a masquerade theme. It instantly transports students to an 18th century castle complete with ornate chandeliers. Hold a contest for the masks and award prizes for different categories.
