Build a Paris night of velvety black, purple and silver. Then light it up esthetically with twinkle lights, candlelight and reflected light for a magical City of Lights Paris theme prom.
To bring the night in, hang purple gossamer backed by strands of twinkle lights. Gossamer is a wispy, nonwoven fabric that is quite sheer, so the lights will be slightly muted in a dreamy way. Pleat or shirr the fabric to half its width to ensure some opacity against the wall, then string the lights following some of the room-facing bulges in the fabric so they are well seen.
Eiffel Tower curtains attached over the doorway ensure prom-goers catch a glimpse of a grand Paris entrance all of a sudden. Enter under the Paris round arch, where a candid photo is snapped. Columns that match the arch define the dance floor with style, carry the theme out from the walls and add needed height.
Build a more formal photo setting for your Paris prom right in front of a section of your purple twinkling wall upon a floor of silver metallic paper and next to an illuminated Eiffel Tower. Toss different sizes of single purple and black latex balloons into the setting.
Cover dining tables in purple table covers with black skirting and black tableware. Tie chair backs in black netting including big bows with ends that touch the floor luxuriously. American Prom has several candle centerpieces that coordinate well with this table but for affordability you can’t beat the price on a set of four Midnight in Paris centerpieces even when you throw in the cost of LED flickering tea light candles. Finish your tables with a dusting of silver stars confetti.
