Twilight Prom Night…Nocturnal Enchantment…Vampires Dancing Under The New Moon…
What could be more perfect than a prom reminiscent of everyone’s favorite vampire saga; Twilight. Imagine dancing at twilight, under the new moon, in a beautiful sultry prom dress. Pure prom bliss! Here are 10 ideas to make it perfect:
1. Mystical Prom Invitations
Choose prom invitations in colors of the night; black, red or burgundy shades.
One word; Fangs. Plastic fangs are inexpensive, and are a must-have. Look for fun colors or glow-in-the-dark fangs.Put them on all the tables, stick them in favor bags, hand them out at the door, and make sure all the chaperones have them!
3. Twinkle Lights
Decorate with twinkle lights. They are inexpensive and create a very “twilight” feel.
A symbol for the saga, you can hardly pull off a “Twilight Prom” without apples. Decorate with them or look for cool favors that have an apple design.
5. Red & Black Prom Decorations
Choose prom decorations in black & red like this cool lantern column. Drape black gossamer on walls and ceilings for a nighttime look. Hang black and red streamers and balloons.
6. Twilight Tabletops
Your tables need to look the part as well. Pick centerpieces that depict the theme like these Iron Gate or Arbor Centerpieces, or use actual books from the series and set a votive candle on top of each one. Sprinkle Black Table Covers with red Confetti.
7. The Perfect Prom Theme
If you choose to use a prom theme, check out the Forever In The Twilight Theme, and Night of The New Moon Theme. Used separately or together, they’ll create the perfect backdrop for your nocturnal festival.
8. Twilight Music
If you’re using a DJ, make sure they have the soundtrack from Twilight and New Moon. Opting for a band? Hopefully they know at least one song from the movie. To save big on music, download all the songs you want on an MP3 player and hook it up to the sound system at your venue. Recruit one of your chaperones to keep an eye on it.
