Choosing the perfect prom theme is essential for setting the entire night's mood. We asked our ten finalists, "What would your dream prom theme be?" We can tell these ladies have great taste by their responses. But more importantly, they're ready to have a good time at Prom 2013!
A cute and playful theme keeps the highly anticipated night light-hearted and fun. Ai wants to deck the room out in pink from floor to ceiling with adorable Hello Kitty decorations. Phuong and Sandra think it'd be fun to add some mystery to the night with a masquerade theme. They imagine sparkly decorations, star-shaped balloons and a beautiful water fountain. The masks are a great way get everyone guessing "who's who"-and maybe get close enough to set some romantic sparks off!
You can't go wrong with a classically romantic prom theme. Chloe dreams of the perfect fairytale setting with the perfect ending for her prom: dancing with her Prince Charming. Life-size cutouts of everyone's favorite fairytale characters would serve as both decorations and photo props. There's something about dancing in a gazebo under the stars that our girls seem to love (it is a popular scene from "A Cinderella Story," after all). Both Jessica and Kaitlyn envision their prom taking place around big gazebos. Jessica takes us back in time with a vintage 1800s theme, while Kaitlyn gives our senses a treat with a floral garden theme. Regardless of the time or setting, everyone can agree that an outdoor affair overlooking a gazebo adds a touch of instant romance to the night.
Just because prom happens in your hometown doesn't mean prom has to stay there. Annie and Sarah are taking their prom theme to Paris-the city of love. Everything will be French, including a mini Eiffel Tower decorations and French desserts. Leslie wants a more exotic destination with the theme "Arabian Nights." Prom goers can kick off their heels and relax in a romantic lounge area covered in vibrantly colored pillows. Lastly, Lili wants the best of everything with an "Around the World" theme. She envisions a mix of decorations symbolic of each city's diverse culture and delicious snacks from different countries.
At the end of the day, your prom theme is only one small aspect of the night, so remember to surround yourself with good people and carry a positive attitude, and you're sure to have the best time of your life!
