Hi Courtney. Could you provide us with a little more to go on so we could know which direction to help you in. Like, for example, when is the dance taking place? Do you have a location? Is it an indoor or outdoor event? What sort of budget is there? Are there already school traditions involved that would need to be incorporated? Things of that nature. That way we could focus on being creative where you need it most. Let us know how we can help. Thanks.

When I was in High School we had a social with the theme "An Evening In Paris" It was beautiful. And didn't cost too much. We made our gym look like a street in Paris at night. We even had an Eiffel Tower. We had one of our parents make lamp posts and put ballons on top to make the bulbs. We also had cozy tables and chairs. The back ground was black paper with small stars on it. There was soft light everywhere and just a romatic feel to the evening. It was beautiful. We had lots of silver balloons too. It was very elegant. Hope this helps.

You can use a disco globe or solarium globe to achieve the starlit effect. A solarium globe is a globe or light source that projects the solar system on the ceiling/walls.

You can also make stars from cardboard/cardstock & cover with foil or spray paint.

I think the glow in the dark stars you find at the dollar star would make great ceiling and wall decorations. Maybe you could have a wishing well for people to toss coins into. You could donate the money to a good cause.

a suggestion;
put up those glow in the dark stars up or get
black paper and make a scene with glow in the dark paints in craft section at WalMart , I use the one
that is around the paint section from Disney a little
bottle goes a long way. I painted all my light\switches so I can find them in the dark.
That is just one idea.

You can buy gossamer at Stumps Prom. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns. It can easily be used to cover the ceiling and you can put white lights in it to make it shine. It is beautiful!

A cool "sky" idea! Hang strands of white Christmas lights across the ceiling. Then hangs lengths of dark gossamer beneath them (both close to the ceiling if possible). This will create a starlit effect!

I need HELP! We need to have a dance in December. Most of my friends want a formal dance like last year. Although, I would like to do something a little different. Something to make it interesting. Not B-O-R-I-N-G. It is hard to entertain teens now-a-days. So please give some creative, interesting ideas that are incorporated with formal wear. Thanks-a-bunches.
P.S. We have a very SMALL school, so we are on a low budget.
