School Formal Theme: Masquerade
Looking for an on-point theme that will add wow factor to your end of year school formal celebration? THINK….Masquerade Ball.
Party like prom in the USA with this glamorous and uber stylish theme. Below we give you the blueprint to styling your formal like the professional peeps.
All good themes start with a colour palette. This allows you to control the theme and ensure that chaos doesn’t reign when you mix a thousand different colours together, in choosing your colours, the Masquerade theme suits a three colour palette. Start by picking your metallic gold, silver, bronze or rose gold, then add a base colour. We are crushing on black for its sophistication, and finally you want to choose a popping accent colour to add the youthful fun that is School Formal; pink, teal and purple are great options.
Where To Style
For those Schools on limited budgets, we always think the entrance sets the mood and is an ideal place for photos at the beginning of the evening. For those schools with a higher budgets, the dance floor is where the party is really at, so focus your budget on creating magic there. For those lucky schools with unlimited budget, then the key areas to focus on would be the entrance, dance floor and the dining tables.
Pick Your Hero Piece
A hero piece is the one decor item/prop you could not live without. In the case of a Masquerade Ball it would most likely be something along the lines of a Large Mask, the ultimate selfie backdrop!
