For just about any kid in his/her senior year of high school, the prom is the biggest dance of the year, not to mention a major life milestone; so the conscientious host must make sure that any prom party is filled with songs to remember. The playlist is of great importance in organizing this event.

The ultimate Prom party play list could include:


Someone Like You by Adele
Baby by Justin Bieber
Beautiful by Jesse McCartney
Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars
Bubbly by Colbie Caillat
Prom Night by Rebecca Black
Dancing Queen by Abba. Reintroduce modern kids to this energetic dance floor classic. The host might even dedicate the song to the prom queen!
DJ Got Us Falling in Love Again by Usher. This is a high energy track that will get guests to dancing.
Starry Eyed Surprise by Paul Oakenfield. This is a light and dreamy track perfect for dancing.
In addition to the best party songs, guests at a prom party surely will appreciate a bright assortment of colorful party supplies. Party colors should be vibrant and bright, and should include bright red, gold, silver, purple, and aqua blue; along, of course, with the official colors of the school that is hosting this particular prom. Show off some bright colors to go with the vibrant music. These hues should be reflected in floral arrangements, balloons, tulle and tissue banners, and ribbons at the prom party, which also might boast a scene setter of a grand ballroom or a glorious starry night. The Prom Night, after all, should be the ultimate night to remember. Working with a theme idea, include the choice of tablecloths into the plan from a solid color one to one with a character splashed all over. If you are stuck for an invitation color use off white it is always stylish and appropriate. Choose the shape, color and design of the centerpieces to be placed on the tables for beauty and functionality to keep things in place.

Preparing and planning for a Prom using homemade party supplies such as handmade paper flowers, homemade party streamers and colorful banners can be an extremely special time for a high school student. This is an occasion that they never will forget. Homemade party supplies take a great deal of time to make, but for a Prom it will be worth the effort. Homemade party goods and party supplies, such as handmade tissue paper flowers add a lot to this wonderful occasion. Tiny accents mean a lot in creating this decorative scheme. These handmade Prom flowers may compare to other paper flowers, but the handmade touch will make them very unique. These paper tissue flowers will be the perfect party supplies for the Prom.

Some people may compare Prom homemade tissue paper flowers to simple paper flowers, but there is no comparison. Handmade tissue paper flowers are easy to make and their bright colors will light up the room. They are tiny works of art that all guests will appreciate.

In order to make homemade tissue paper flowers for a Prom, you will need, pipe cleaners and various colors of tissue paper. Using one pipe cleaner per flower and approximately about six sheets of tissue paper per flower fold the paper like an accordion. Then take the pipe cleaner and place it in the center of the tissue paper. After this has been done, twist it together and use scissors to round the edges of the tissue paper (kind of oval shaped). Finally, you will pull the paper one at a time to form petals. Pull all of the petals out to form the completed tissue paper flower. The process is actually quite simple and very basic. These homemade paper flowers are perfect homemade party supply for the Prom and can be hung from various places throughout the room. They will brighten and beautify the area, as only florals can do.


Make the most unforgettable evening in the life of a young person very tasty too, with the help of a prom party cake. Every good festivity calls for a cake, including this one.

A prom party cake should reflect the fun yet elegant spirit of prom night: a festive milestone in the life of any young person. This is an evening they are sure to always remember.

Regardless of its flavor or texture, a prom party cake should be decorated in accordance with the individual theme colors of that evening’s festivity. If these colors are red and black, for example, the host might go with a black forest cake covered with strawberries, or perhaps a red velvet cake topped with chocolates, chocolate chips or even cocoa-flavored sprinkles. If the colors are ivory and green, she might opt to serve a vanilla cake with mint butter cream icing. For a prom decorated in hues of blue and gold, she might make a cake topped with lush gold butter cream icing and fruity blueberries. The cake also could be enhanced with the addition of party supplies like ribbons and bows. The end result should be pretty and yummy in equal measure.

If a parent is hosting a prom party on behalf of her daughter, she might design a cake that will reflect the color of the girl’s dress; the prom party cake could be just as lovely and decorative as this glamorous prom gown, only a heck of a lot less expensive! And, as an added bonus, very edible in nature.

A prom party is one of the greatest things you are supposed to look forward to at school. Some people even consider it as a reward for all the kids who went to a decade’s worth of effort to finish school. Still, the idea some people have of throwing a party after a party can get rather ridiculous. Unless you’re referring to the actual prom itself, which while also important has been dropping off in favor of parties at home with fewer rules. They can also choose whom to invite.

Well most school party proms tend to not allow students to bring dates who are underclassmen or from different schools. Bad idea, they’re not going to cheat on their boyfriend or girlfriend just to go to a school dance. Nor are they going to just stand there alone. So after all prom parties tend to emphasize the opposite rule. Serving punch is traditional at parties, so is spiking it during the prom party, so make sure someone guard’s the punch. Also most proms tend to end early in the evening, while not much can be done about that it lets everyone go to a second later party. This one tends to get much rowdier with sleep deprivation and spiked drinks. Beware of this happening.

For decorations the main reason you are reading this, the standard banners and streamers are a must. Also flashing lights or anything that can resemble a dance club would make for a good addition. Many proms have taken to playing light rock or techno as dance music. Finally since it is mainly a dance all food must be quick and portable. And all dishes must be made to be thrown away by lazy guests. This also includes paper table covers for any table you may have set up.

Prom History, Facts and Educational Resources

The word prom was derived from the term promenade, which indicates a formal dance where girls and boys alike turn out in all their finery at school halls that have been decorated to resemble grand dance emporiums. Very few people know this rather interesting trivia tidbit. These supervised dances are followed by different variations of the prom party. Finish off a beautiful evening with an ebullient event.

At one time the prom party was considered the pinnacle of the evening’s celebration, as this festivity was planned and overseen by students without adult supervision. Whether at a home, hotel or teen spot, the prom party was seen as the culmination of the night’s events, and sometimes was even more anticipated then the prom itself. And the kids were totally and always in charge.

Yet because of unfortunate happenings related to prom parties as they happened in the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s, (everything from alcohol-related car accidents to drunken fist fights to unplanned pregnancies), many schools—and even some community organizations, like the Rotary Club and some church groups—are arranging adult-supervised after-prom parties. These, like the prom itself, involve music, dancing, food and nonalcoholic drinks. These gatherings are seen as far more safe and responsible in nature.

In the past two decades, anti-prom parties are also all the rage. People who don’t have prom dates, or those who consider the prom to be a classist, establishment-based party with little redeeming value, might convene at a private residence to talk, laugh, and enjoy food, movies, and one another’s company. The evening is whatever you make it in this case.

While one’s high school prom is a time-honored tradition that forms many a timeless memory, the prom party is a special tradition all its own. It will provide its own brand of special memories. Plan the ultimate prom party today! Inspire everyone to be creative by setting up arts and crafts workstations with amazing activities from coloring and drawing to finger painting to be taken home. Have delicious food at an event and always give guests a few healthy alternatives to high fat, high calorie foods.
