Just as Poseidon created a beautiful dwelling for his mortal love Cleito, so too can you build an underwater paradise for a romantic evening using our newest undersea theme kit, Atlantis. An arch, gates and columns combine marine hues with accents of gold and a whisper of purple that you can repeat throughout the venue; props such as the seahorse chariot bring elements of whimsy and delightful photo ops.
Atlantis joins other marine themes and nautical kits and many of our undersea props will work with more than one collection, so be sure to make a complete browse of them before making your list.
Support your Lost Atlantis decorations with a beautiful background such as an underwater photo illustration, deep sea mural, or one of our water-patterned gossamers.
You can also make waves – almost literally – by covering the ceiling and/or tables in a metallic eyelash fabric in dark blue.
Covering the ceiling in a wave pattern looks dramatic (see a model here in event fabric categories, lower left photo) but is pretty simple as long as you have safe equipment and minimal fear of heights. :0) You’ll need eye screws and wire for the task, being sure to match the hardware and wire gauge to the weight of the fabric you’re using.
An underwater world is one in which the creatures move at various depths, and part of what will make your marine wonderland special will be to represent dimensionality of movement. Suspend large sea life cutouts (be sure to get the two-sided kind) with monofilament line. Bermuda blue or white LED lanterns can bring both dimension and mood lighting to the venue.
If you’d like to add a chandelier to the middle of the room, we recommend you consider a disc chandelier to suggest an array of light-catching “bubbles.”
Another way to bring 3D attitude and a bit of animation to your marine space is with balloons. Our mylar balloon sea critters include tropical fish, whale, dophin and seahorse and they range in length from 32”-37”. Group them with latex balloons and tether each bunch to stand just above average eye level. Hide the balloon weights behind free-standing decorations such as seashell or coral standees. Echo the height on tables by using these balloons in tall centerpieces, too.
Favors for a romantic undersea prom are a dream to put together. Choose party favors with a more generally oceanic theme to match an invitation or background mural, or go full Atlantis in photo frame options, key tags and more. Be sure to check out unique under-the-sea favors, too, for travel mugs, party beads and unusual favor options.
As you can see, our Lost Atlantis underwater theme is a sure winner for a romantic underwater theme prom. Dive into our Under the Sea pages soon.
