All About the Bling!
Year after year, junior and senior high school girls go on city-wide searches for the perfect prom dress. Typically, the more the dress sparkles, the better. The jewelry, the accessories, and the shoes often sparkle and shine as well. With glittery accents making such a huge splash in the world of prom attire, why not plan a prom centering around every girl’s best friend, diamonds?
Shimmery, Shiny Dream Come True
A great base to use for your sparkly diamond-like prom is a themed decorating kit—you’ll want to find something that has a good selection of pieces so you can add a few other creative touches to the event, but not so many pieces that you set up the kit and are done. Try the Dream Come True kit for a solid base to a diamond-themed prom. Then you can add a variety of other decorations around your event space to expand the theme and play up the sparkle factor that so many girls love.
Another great start for your shiny, diamond-like decorations is a Fire and Ice theme kit. You could either use the whole kit or put more focus on the ‘ice’ decorations, as those will be the best addition to your diamond-themed prom. Using the kit will add another color to your prom—similar to how precious gemstones are used to complement diamonds. Following that concept, you could also pull in green to represent emeralds or blue to represent rubies, but those should be accents to your shimmery diamond decorations.
Sparkly Additions to Your Diamond Prom
After you have the decorations for your sparkly diamond prom started, you’ll want to look into the additional touches not found in the kits. For example, look into various fabrics to work with in your event space that will enhance the diamond theme you’re building. Drape your tables with iridescent chiffon (silver fabric over a solid color would add a bit of dimension to the tables). Look into metallic gossamer to use as wall covers. Choose either one color or a few different colors (try to keep it to three colors at most), hang a couple sheets of metallic gossamer from the ceiling to the floor—make sure to leave excess at the floor. Black, white, and silver would be great colors for your diamond-themed prom. When you have the sheets hanging from the ceiling, gather them together about four feet above the floor. The walls in your event space will be hidden and extra shimmer will be added to your room.
The last touch is the selection of prom favors. The best favors to go with a sparkly, diamond-themed prom are glassware favors. Flutes, goblets, snifters—whichever glassware favors you choose for your diamond-themed prom guests, you’ll be able to get them personalized for that extra-special, memorable touch.
By starting your prom planning with a solid decoration base, you’ll be able to transform any event space into a memorable moment in time for your prom guests. There are many options to work with for a sparkly prom—try diamond accents on your school colors!
