A middle school dance idea I used in the spring was a "Spring Into Friendship" dance. It had a sixties appearance. We decorated a gym. Around the gym on the walls were collections of bright color flowers, 36 to 24 inches in diameter with a different color center. They looked like the no slip doilies we used to put in bathtubs, sixtyish. Each flower had a stem with leaves cut out of green paper that reached to the flower.
In between each of the large bouquets of flowers, we had very large silhouettes of young adults hanging out together: shopping, skateboarding, walking, having a picnic, graduates, playing basketball and playing chess. These silhouettes were located on the free clip art web site I found by googling free clip art. I then printed and transferred them onto overhead projector sheets of acetate and enlarged them to 8 feet in height on black roll paper, putting two pieces together for some of the large group silhouettes.
