Decorate Prom Like a Star

There are several ways you can decorate prom like a star: Hollywood Star, Rock Star, or Star Star! By the date of this posting, you probably have your star theme for this year settled so we’ve included some additional product ideas and tips.

If your plans are still  up in the air, read on to get a feel for which type of star best suits your school’s personality.

Hollywood Star. A Hollywood theme is perennially popular because everybody knows the script! Strong, dramatic colors like black with splashes of silver and red are the way to go here. So is plenty of glitz. Line a wall with silver metallic curtains. Host a Grand March under a star arch. Turn on a spotlight and pull out the red carpet for a paparazzi-laden stroll. Lay a path of Hollywood stars with attendee’s names and set tables with Hollywood movie camera centerpieces.

Rock Star. The Rock Star theme is a newer one but great fun because it’s over the top! This is the time to use a bold and unusual color scheme such as purple with red. Cover a wall or two with spot-lit Rock Star Scene Setters room rolls. Set up the Rock Star Theme decorating kit – complete with fan standees! – on the stage to make it the dominant feature of the party room. Prop inflatable instruments against amplifiers, and finish tables in die-cut musical notes and Rock Star metallic confetti.

Star & Moon. Starry night themes were some of the first prom themes ever, and they are an enduring favorite because they are romantic by nature and just so very versatile as well. Create a ballroom floor banked by a wall of starry window murals, or take prom “outside” by decorating with star-themed background materials and garden theme party decorations. A third option is to make moon and stars the only focus with one of our breathtaking star theme kits that whisk you to the Milky Way.

So there you have it: three ways to look at stars for prom. Have fun with your star theme prom, and happy decorating!

Spring’s Top 10 Prom Themes

Stumps Party presents the list of spring’s top 10 prom themes.

Candy Land
If you want a combination of color and fun, this is the theme. The student body will love the lollipop-lined walkways, the sweet taffy waterfall, cupcake backdrops, and sweet candy arch. The success of this prom is easily described in one word – sweet.

Mardi Gras
Put the party into your prom with a Mardi Gras theme. Fill your space with vibrant purples, greens, and golds. Add beads, feathers, and masks. Based upon the style of your decorations, you can replicate the look of an embellished, New Orleans street or simply elicit a sense of mystical magic, or Afro-Caribbean mambo. What used to be for the French is now perfect for your school.

Hollywood
Everyone will sing “Hurray for Hollywood” when committee members see how easily this theme comes together and when the student body takes pleasure in the glitz of this hot theme. Give them the star treatment with a red carpet entrance, rows of paparazzi, lights, cameras, Hollywood Walk of Fame stars, and more. This theme can also lean to a more casual interpretation with an emphasis on film, popcorn, and lots of yellow, red, and white.

City
Bring the upscale, cosmopolitan atmosphere to your school with a city theme. Surround prom-goers with skyscrapers, billboards and lots of lights. Pull these items together to give the impression of a city, or make it a New York night with the addition of a Times Square theme kit or Central Park props.

Parisian
The Parisian theme is always a hit with its romantic, European flair. Imagine the excitement of your student body as they get to walk past the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe arch, or a Parisian café. Play some Edith Piaf, serve baguettes with pate, and cover the walls with backdrops depicting scenes of Paris, such as the Champs-Elysees.

Casino
You won’t be rolling the dice when you choose this popular theme. Students love the high-energy décor of playing cards, poker chips, dice, and roulette wheels. Choose from a jackpot night, a high roller night, or a Vegas escape theme kit. Include some games, a buffet and some live entertainment for the full casino experience.

India
The Indian theme has really become a favorite because of its modern exoticism. The juxtaposition of rich greens, purples, golds, blues, and pinks create a breathtaking look that is unique to the Indian culture. This theme benefits from lots of draping chiffon, shimmera, and gossamer fabrics, trimmed with string lights. Prom-goers will be charmed with the beauty of this destination theme prom.

Stars
Dazzle everyone with a stars theme prom. The student body will be taken aback when they find themselves surrounded with gold, silver, and white stars of all sizes that reflect light throughout the space. Choose from star-studded arches, stairways, columns, and tunnels. Decorate the ceiling with hanging stars, string lights, and panels of star gossamer fabric.

Castles
Prom-goers love the chance to revisit the days of chivalry and courtly love. That is why the castle theme is always a success. This theme can capture the romantic look of a fairytale castle, the medieval look of the Knights of Camelot, or the fantasy look of an ice castle.

Fifties
Everyone loves the 50’s. It was the time of the sock hop, the soda fountains, the poodle skirts, and the emergence of rock and roll. People knew how to have fun and student bodies all over the country still have fun with a fifties prom theme. Fill the space with 45’s, vintage car props, jukebox standees and drive-in decorations. This theme has lots of possibilities, so just run with it and have fun.
