I am in charge of this years homecoming dance decorations for Lutheran East High and the theme this year is "Midnight in Paris". I need some help with decorating. I am on a tight budget and I need some ideas about some nice but reasonably priced decorations. Help!

We did a HUGE party for my daughter with a Paris theme. We had black skyline cutouts, either backlit, or with white Christmas lights lining the top. These were all around the rooms with black paper behind them. We put some glue & glitter stars on the paper to add more glitz.
Colors that are very "Paris" are black and white, with pops of color (we used pink). Table cloths were black and white striped. Centerpieces were simple clear vases with a white flower and black, white, and pink ribbons.
Maybe the drama department would have something you could use, or even help make some backdrops, like the Eiffel Tower or Arc de Triomphe.
For the photo area, we had a "park" set up with astroturf, a garden bench, and a fountain and birdbath.
I would use navy blue to suggest midnight with silver stars.
PS I know this is silly but watch Disney's the Aristocats. That was set in Paris and it would be good for design ideas.
At Delias, a store for teens, they have a great Effiel Tower decal. Check it out:
