Planning a prom takes a lot of work! From picking a theme, deciding on food and drink, choosing a band or DJ, and finding the just-right decorations, it can quickly become expensive and overwhelming. One budget-friendly option is using printed signs and banners, table covers and displays, and floor and wall decorations to bring everything together. Tabletop banners, table throws, and step and repeats will help you individualize each area of your prom venue and create lifelong memories.
The Big Welcome
Prom is one of the most exciting times in school life. Provide an inviting and welcoming atmosphere sets the night’s mood. From the moment attendees enter the room, it becomes a magical place, so try using vinyl banners to highlight the evening’s theme. Place a banner stand at the entrance and use hanging banners near the drinks, food, and dance floor areas. Don’t forget the step and repeat banner so attendees can have their pictures taken for a fun prom memento.
Because they come in such a variety of sizes, vinyl banners are an instant and impressive way to display a celebratory message. And, since they’re also weatherproof, you can place them outside the venue to guide prom attendees as they arrive.
Table Top Displays
Direct prom guests and organize the prom room with table top displays that show attendees where to pick up prom programs and place cards and sign guest or memory books. Use a small retractable banner at the sign-in table with important venue information, such as where the restroom facilities or coat check area are. Table top displays are lightweight and compact, making them easy to transport. They’re also incredibly quick and easy to set up. Another fun idea is to use mini banners with pictures from the school year and display them throughout the venue.
Table covers are a great way to tie your prom’s theme together. Table throws are so versatile! For example, if your theme is Carnival, choose covers of varying colors and print them with New Orleans-style masks. Going with a Hollywood theme? Alternative tables with black and gold table covers that feature Walk-of-Fame stars with the school logo or classmate pictures. Printed throws with the school’s name and/or logo can also be a sophisticated look.
Personalized wall décor is the easiest and most affordable way to decorate the walls of your prom venue without the use of tools or damaging the walls. No doubt about it, customizable and removable posters are the perfect way to bring your prom’s theme to life. They adhere to any flat, clean surface and can be easily removed and repositioned as you decorate without peeling or ripping.
Want to create a Yule Ball a la the magic of Harry Potter? Recreate the wintery theme with pictures of ice sculptures, snow, and the Great Hall. Then, string twinkling lights around the pictures to resemble the Forbidden Forest. For your Hollywood-themed event, print a wall cling or hang banners with a picture of the Hollywood sign and clips from famous films. The possibilities are endless!
Easy and affordable banners, signs, wall decorations, and table covers, are all you need to personalize your school’s prom. These small touches have a huge impact and turn a generic reception area into a magical night-to-remember setting!
