City of Light – Create Your Paris Dream Theme

Posted by

A Paris theme makes a fun and exotic destination theme for your high school Prom or Homecoming dance. While you can’t actually go to Paris, it’s easy to create the same look and vibe for your dance. We’ve put together our list of essentials to create the perfect Paris theme for your school. 

Choose a Complete Paris Theme

Start with a complete Paris theme from Anderson’s, and use it as a jumping off point to design an entire look. Choose whether you want a beautiful and elegant Paris theme or a more fun and casual Paris theme. Then, go from there by adding décor, photo props, favors, royalty accessories, and more.

Erect an Eiffel Tower

You can’t have a Paris Prom theme without the iconic landmark. Set up an Eiffel Tower replica at Grand March, the entrance to the dance, or in your photo area!
