Prom will probably be one of your best high school memories. Besides graduation, prom is the last gathering with all of your classmates, before you set foot into the big ol' world of college & full-time jobs. It's important to choose a fun & fancy prom theme that will bring a memorable twist to the party!

Top 5 Popular Themes for Prom Ideas

  • Egyptian
  • Mardi Gras
  • Arabian Nights
  • Haunted Prom
  • Rockin’ Country

Egyptian Themed Prom

Elegance meets glamour at the Egyptian themed prom! You’ll want an off-shoulder or strapless flowy long dress, adorned with crystals, gems & stone accents. Summon your inner Cleopatra, with winged liquid eye liner & neutral lipstick to finish the Egyptian look.

Mardi Gras Themed Prom

Party like there’s no tomorrow at your Mardi Gras themed prom! This look calls for a fun, flirty dress that’s shorter in length, in bright colors. Since your dress will be the main focus, go with more subtle makeup. A colored liner, paired with taupe nude eye shadow & high gloss lips will compliment this playful look.

Arabian Nights Themed Prom

Subtly sultry, the Arabian Nights prom theme focuses on rich jewel toned eye shadows and dress colors. Adorn your colorful smoky eyed look with long false lashes, and wear a nude lipstick with glittery gloss.

Haunted Themed Prom

Wildly wicked, the Haunted Prom will feature spooky & Gothic style décor. Just remember, it’s not Halloween! You want your look to be mysterious, with a sexy edge. Try an all white flowy dress, with light makeup & smoky eyes. Or, show your dark side with a slinky black dress, smoky eyes & vampy lips.

Rockin’ Country Themed Prom

Go Rockabilly! If your school selects a rockin country theme, this is your chance to go pin-up style. Thick winged liner, a perfectly matte face & cherry red lipstick will look hot with whatever retro-style dress you choose. For the most authentic look, go for a short dress with a sweetheart neckline & flair skirt.

      The Mardi Gras seems so cute and playful. I never went to my prom, although I had a boyfriend. At the time it wasn't a popular thing to do. It seems now that the kids have to spend way too much money, to keep up with the others, flowers, limo, hair, nails, accessories. It's only one night, after all. And the pressure about sex that goes with the night probably hasn't changed either. You picked all pretty dresses.
