2013 Prom Themes

With prom season in full effect, the prom committees are getting decor ready for their creative themes. Each year, High Schools are coming up with unique ideas for their prom. From New York to Paris...from Candy Land to Alice and Wonderland...prom themes are now out of this world! With the help of Seventeen Magazine, we listed below this year's most popular themes. They're sure to get everyone in fiesta mode!


The casino theme is ideal for students who want something different from just dancing. Adding table games and slot machines gives everyone something to do! To complete the theme, you can recreate Vegas by adding lots of flashing lights. Channel your inner Vegas show girl by wearing lots of sparkle, like the sequin dress below. Of course, since Rissy Roo's is 20 minutes outside of Atlantic City, NJ, we're partial to making it an Atlantic City casino theme :-).

Masquerade Ball

Want something a little more classy? Seventeen Magazine recommends channeling 18th century France with castle decorations and a big fancy ball. Students can get creative with their masks, and a contest for who has the best one can make it even more fun. As for what to wear, look for something that will make a grand entrance. Below is a perfect look for a fancy masquerade ball.

2. Sizzle by Coloriffics Andes Shoes - Glitter peep-toe slingback with metallic heel and double glitter/metallic platform.

Arabian Nights

If you're looking for something totally exotic and different, an Arabian Nights theme is the one for your school! Beautiful decorations with vibrant colors and draping will bring the middle east to your prom. We loved Seventeen's idea to set up a station for henna tattoos so students can take a break from the dance floor. To make it even more authentic, instead of chairs, set up cushions for the seating at the tables.

When it comes to your outfit, incorporating the vibrant colors into your accessories or gown will have you matching with the theme perfectly. A bright statement necklace would be perfect to give you that Arabian exotic style!
