Top 10 Prom Themes

May 31, 2011

Prom themes can be creative, poorly thought-out, or non-existent.  For the prom committee, picking out a theme can be stressful and tough.  There are so many themes to choose from, and each class may attempt to outdo the theme of the previous class.  With that in mind, here is a list of my ten favorite prom themes:

  1. With so many different prom themes to choose from, you can make sure that no two classes in a row will have the same prom theme.Masquerade – Masks veil the identity of your mystery date until after the prom court in announced.
  2. Paris by Moonlight – This lovely romantic theme finally gives you a chance to speak French, if only for one night.
  3. Project Runway – Dressing in the best clothing is the game, complete with a fashion show.
  4. Casino Nights – Poker, Craps, or Roulette. You may even win a prize at the end of the night.
  5. Shanghai Nights – You may be inspired to go on summer vacation to China with this theme.
  6. Under the Sea – Remember the theme of the dance Marty’s parents attended in “Back to the Future”? This is that theme.
  7. Hollywood theme – This is an easy theme to setup, especially here in Southern California.
  8. Cinderella and Prince Charming – This could be the dream prom of two high school sweethearts.
  9. New York, New York – The prom committee would face the daunting task of making the dance hall or banquet hall look like New York as much as possible.
  10. Decades” theme – Bring back the Roaring ‘20s or Disco ‘70s for a new generation.

These are some classic, creative and fun prom themes.  You could even come up with your own original prom theme and go down in your school’s history for creating a magnificent prom.  Prom night is a significant point in your high school memories.  Just remember that the prom theme isn’t everything; what counts is what you make of your night.

Duct Tape Prom Dresses

April 25, 2011

Every high school girl dreams of having the perfect prom dress, perfect date, and perfect night.  What if you could win a scholarship up to $5,000 because of how great you and your date dress?  The catch is, the dress and tuxedo need to be made of duct tape.  The first place winners receive $5,000, second place winners receive $3,000, and third place winners receive $2,000.

Spring Break and Easter 2011 may have ended, but Prom Season  is in full swing.  Duck brand duct tape wants teenagers across the U.S. and Canada to bring out their creative side, making prom dresses and tuxedos out of duct tape.There are some rules that come with this contest:

  1. No purchase is necessary.  On the contest website, Duck brand duct tape is sold, but you do not have to buy your dress- or tux- making materials from there.
  2. You and your date must be legal U.S. or Canadian residents.
  3. Both of you must be at least 14 years old.

The contest began on March 7th this year and ends on June 13th, 2011.  The judges will use the same judging criteria on each contest entrant and will select ten finalists who will move on to public voting.  The judging criteria are based on workmanship, originality, use of color, accessories, and, most importantly, use of duct tape.  Public voting will begin on June 17, 2011 and will be held on until July 11, 2011.  There will be honorable mentions for Best Purse, Best Corsage, Best Shoes, Best Tie, Best Jewelry, and Best Prop, but no cash prizes will be given to the honorable mention winners.  This contest is a great way to get a scholarship and create a great memory for your prom!
