Just as there are many types of fairy tales in literature, there are quite a few different types of fairy tale Prom themes. They range from the romantic (think Cinderella) to place specific (like Arabian or a winter wonderland) to dark (Beauty and the Beast or an enchanted forest). No matter which type of fairy tale Prom you choose, there are many ways to bring that theme to life. Read on to discover everything you need for your oh so enchanting fairy tale Prom, from the invites to the favors to the décor.
ARABIAN Fairy Tale Prom Theme
If you want “a whole new world” type of fairy tale Prom, an exotic Arabian theme is perfect. Start by purchasing a complete theme of Arabian decorations, like Enchanted Kingdom, Magic Carpet Ride, or Fairest Land. (You can also combine elements of these themes to create your own unique Arabian paradise!) Once you have the basics, you can complement your theme with lots of Arabian décor, favors, and invitations. Keep things like genie lamps, lots of gold, and bright, jewel colors in mind.
