The post prom party is where all the real fun happens.
After-Prom parties started as a way to keep kids of the streets and away from the temptations that usually go with the prom festivities. In most cases the kids go back to their school were post prom volunteers and school faculty put together an event filled with fun, food and entertainment. For the post prom party veteran, fresh ideas are always welcome – who wants to do the whole “Under the Sea” thing year after year? Here we’ve put together a few ideas that help you breathe some excitement into your next after-prom party!
After-Prom Party Theme Ideas
Western – Mechanical bull, barrels, bull skulls, cactus cut outs, western shooting gallery, western mural, wagon wheel, jail, caskets, split rail fence and more bring this theme to life.
Monte Carlo / Casino Theme – We create a complete casino experience complete with tables, dealers, chips, and decor. No real money exchanges hands and everyone enjoys a little taste of Vegas!
Hollywood Theme – literally the red carpet experience. Paparazzi line up to get a quick snap shot as you walk the red carpet. Once inside, you feel like Hollywood royalty ready to cut loose!
Roaring 20’s – a blast from the past. Volunteers and staff are dressed to the 9’s and you’re ready to have a blast.
Carnival – carnival games, inflatable rides and even an authentic carnival sideshow are all possible in our always popular carnival after-prom theme.
Futuristic – party like it’s 2099. The lights, the beverages, the dress. The only thing missing is the flux capacitor
Circus/Cirque – fire-eaters, jugglers, stilt-walkers, inflatables, the list goes on. Our Cirque themed prom party is and near endless list of excitement and fun.
After-Prom Party Activities
Casino Tables – Just because you didn’t go with the casino theme doesn’t mean you have to go without the casino fun. We have Roulette Wheels, Craps, Poker, Black Jack, and many more. All tables include dealers and chips.
Inflatable Rentals – what’s an after-prom party without a few inflatable rides? We have a inflatable slide that’s over 30 feet tall, inflatable obstacle courses that will test your endurance, inflatable games that will test your skill and inflatable bounce houses to round things out. Most inflatables come with an attendant for an additional fee and all are inspected and insured.
Green Screens – silly props and fun backgrounds will make for lasting memories. We bring everything – props, backgrounds and photographer. After your party, you can access your pictures via our website.
Photo Booths – take a pic with your best friend or prom date in our photo booth. Images are developed on the spot.
Cash Cubes/Machines – just like the cash cubes you’ve seen on TV or at fundraisers. Students hop and try to grab as much as they can in the time allowed. It’s not as easy as you might think!
Contests – Everyone likes a little friendly competition and we have plenty to offer – trivia, karaoke, bouncing ponies racing, hermit crab racing, Fast Fish racing to name a few.
After Prom Entertainment Ideas
Game Shows – we have several game shows that will keep your guests engadged and entertained, the include: Wheel of Prizes, Newly Wed, Fabulous Feud, Name the Right Price, What’s the Question and 60 Second Challenge. Each game comes with a host, game show girls and podiums (if need).
Comedy Shows – we have comedians that will make you laugh until you cry! Head liners like Kelly Collette and others will keep your guests in stitches, figuratively speaking of course.
Comedy Mind Reading Shows – Sometimes referred to as mentalist shows, Dan Luckett or Chris Yantek will quite literally blow your mind. These shows are a favorite at after-proms and get booked quickly so be sure to reserve your soon.
Live band or DJ – keep things going with a live cover band or DJ. While bands are a little more expensive, they make for an amazing party. DJ’s are great too – have them play the number one hit song for each year that you were in school or just have him play a fun mix. Either way you’re gonna have a blast.
After-Prom Planning Tips
Build a team – get the school administration involved as well as faculty and parents.
Get a head start on planning – planning a post-prom party is a big job so don’t wait until the last minute. Make sure everyone on your team understands what they’re supposed to do and then let them do it. It’s also important to keep track of progress.
Decide on where to host the after-prom party – Most after-prom parties are held at school but some, like in the case of home schooling orgainzations, host at a private venue. If you do choose a private venue, most want plenty of notice so be sure to reserve your space as early as possible.
Food and Drinks – what and where? – You need to decide what to serve and where to serve it. It can be as simple as cookies, chips and drinks or a completely catered event with hot food.
Have Fun – above all, have fun! Planning an after-prom party can be an incredibly taxing and stressful process. Just be sure to take it slow, be deliberate with your plans and communicate with vendors, staff and students.
