Take the stress out of decorating for prom with these 4 easy ideas! Your teen can easily order all of the items for prom and have them delivered to your home!
One of the BEST things that happened when we moved into our new home was a new school! My girls’ attend a STEM school right in our neighborhood. It’s been so wonderful to get involved with the school and community and since it’s such a small school it’s given my girls the chance to plan events. This year Hannah has been really involved in the SBO and planning her prom! Prom is this weekend and we have had an amazing time planning it!
Her prom’s theme is “A Midsummer’s Night Dream”. Hannah and her friends have a whole vision for what they want the decor to look like. We heard about a new service that Amazon has created called Amazon Teen and it’s made planning prom so much easier for us! Teens 13-17 can now shop on Amazon and use the Amazon app with their own personal logins, and keep their parents informed. Hannah loves this because it’s easier to access her Amazon list and add things to her cart while she is away from home.
I love it because Amazon Teen keeps me informed. As a parent I can choose to either approve all Hannah’s orders via text or email or set approved spending limits per order. This arrangement gives Hannah the freedom to order the things she needs to for prom but also lets me feel comfortable that I know what is going on with the account since it’s linked to my Amazon account. I receive itemized notifications for every order and can cancel and return any item in accordance with Amazon’s policies. I also LOVE that Hannah can share benefits of MY Prime Membership, including Free Two-Day Shipping, Prime Video and Twitch Prime at no additional cost. Yay!!
We have a pretty small budget for Prom since our school is new and doesn’t have a lot of funding yet. So, the ability to be able to order things from Amazon and get them shipped to us using Prime is awesome! Amazon has amazing prices and the BEST selection of anything we could ever need!
Here are 4 Easy Ways to Decorate for Prom on a Budget!
A Candy Bar
Our prom starts after the kids have already gone to dinner, so people will not be super hungry. We thought a candy bar would be a pretty display. We are using different clear containers with candy that is different shades of candy that match our decor. There are SO many different options on Amazon for great prices.
A Pretty Photo Backdrop
Memories are the most important part of Prom. So we knew we needed to make a photo backdrop where kids can pose and post about their night. Since the theme is A Midsummers Night Dream we wanted to go with a really romantic backdrop with greens that seem like it’s outside. We found all kinds of greens and flowers on Amazon. We are going to use a sheer curtain that we found on Amazon and then layer the greens and flowers over that!

Nothing is more beautiful to decorate with than flowers. We are going to put the flowers around the room in pretty vases! We ordered clear vases in different shapes and sizes and are going to fill them with beautiful blooms!
There’s no easier way to create a mood than with lights! You can get lights in all kinds of different sizes and types. We are putting lights behind our photo backdrop, stringing them around the room and using lights in these little lanterns we found.
It’s been so fun planning prom with Hannah. I love that we were able to use Amazon Teen to give her the freedom to make decisions and easily purchase the items. You can find everything for prom so conveniently on Amazon – from dresses to party decor. Amazon makes throwing a big event SO easy! We can’t wait for prom this weekend!
Go check out Amazon Teen! We love it.
