A garden event theme is a beautiful idea for a simple, romantic, and gorgeous prom night! Check out these tips for a planning the perfect garden themed prom.
The first step in hosting your prom is sending out invitations. Be sure to invite students, faculty chaperones, and other important guests. There are plenty of lovely invitations for a garden theme. We suggest the Garden Silhouette Custom Invitation or the Butterfly Invitation. These invitations can be personalized with your own wording and prom details.
For your decorations, transform your entire venue into a garden getaway with a prom decorating kit! The The Send Me to the Moon Kit features a city backdrop so your prom can look like a romantic Central Park. The Passport to Romance Kit combines the garden theme with another hot theme—Paris! For simple elegance, try the Garden of Lights Kit with a fountain, lighted archways, and a waterfall backdrop.
Accent your theme kits with other big details like a secret garden trellis with a gate, rose garden columns, a rose arch, a gazebo, or a real working fountain! Remember to include garden or park benches so students have a place to take a break in a scenic way. They’re great for photo settings too.
There are tons of accents for you to fill out the garden look. Fill up the space with plenty of plants—real or silk—to give the appearance of lush natural beauty. Plus, there are several types of fake grass—scatter grass, tissue grass and grass mats—for creating the garden lawn. Use ivy patterned gossamer to create swags, columns, drapes, ceiling effects and more. Check out our Gossamer Tips for extra ideas. Use ivy or rose garland to decorate tables, chairs, walkways, the stage, and other areas for a lovely accent that will really pull all the décor together.
Murals create a realistic backdrop. There are plenty of beautiful murals for a garden theme. For a simple look, try the Serenity Photo Mural. Transport guests to the Mediterranean with a Tuscan Villa Photo Mural. You can also use murals to advertise for your prom.
Add some balloons and centerpieces. They’re the simple touches that can really bring your finishing touches together. Glitter Rose Balloons are great for scattering around the dance floor or tying in bunches to line a walkway. The glitter will catch the light for a beautiful accent. Centerpieces are a perfect and simply elegant touch. Place them on top of a simple tablecover and scatter some rose confetti for a lovely tabletop!
Don’t forget memory booklets! Check out our Regency Memory Booklet Tips for tons of ideas on how to fill the special keepsake. The Garden Silhouette Booklet (which matches the invitations) is a great choice for this event. Students will love looking through their booklet to remember the special night!
