I am looking for ideas for class reunion banquet table decorations. Our school colors are maroon and white and the mascot is a maroon and white tiger. Any suggestions?

All Recess No WorkThe best class reunion decorations are those that bring you back to the good old days and also help you celebrate how far you've all come since then. Choosing the right decor is what will set the ambiance for the evening and is important for creating what type of memories that night will hold.
Choose Nostalgic Decorations
Use the Colors of YesteryearUsing the colors of your alma mater is the starting point of decorating for a class reunion. Streamers, balloons and other party supplies can all be found in your old high school hues. Other fun ideas include buying pom-poms and cheerleader cones for centerpieces throughout the room. Small child-size versions can be found at many toy stores and even local everything-for-a-dollar shops. If you want a more elegant theme, without all the usual festivities, finding table linens and candles in your old school colors will still add the nostalgic touch these get-togethers need.
Add Personal Decor
Showcase the MemoriesHaving attendees bring in their own personal memorabilia for class reunion decorations is another great way to make the evening ultrapersonal. Old trophies, letterman jackets, certificates, and awards, as well as pictures, can be placed around the room for people to look at. If you are going with a theme, such as recreating your senior prom, have the ladies try and find dresses similar to the ones they wore or even the actual gowns for those who kept them. Have them either wear them or bring them to hang up to create instant decor. Partying like they did when they were younger is a wonderful way to ensure a good time.
Add Old Photographs
Reminisce About the Good Old DaysHaving everyone bring old photographs in from that era is also a great idea. They do not just have to be school related either. Summer sports, first cars, and other pictures that capture the era can be hung up or displayed on buffet tables so people can reminisce as they eat. They make great conversation starters, and talking of the days of yesteryear is a great way to make sure that everyone has a good time. When trying to think of the best class reunion decorations for your get-together, the trick is to remember that the evening is all about creating a wonderful new memory -good luck.
How about mirrors, with red tinsel on them, with a school prop on top of it all? By prop I mean something like a little tiger, megaphone, text book, yearbook, or old school photos that you can copy from a yearbook, a copy of your school or class song, graduation pictures, a reproduction of your graduation ceremony brochure.
