In the Fall of 2010 I was asked to decorate a ‘Red Carpet’ themed homecoming dance with lots of gorgeous red poms. Fortunately I was asked to decorate again this year. The theme for 2011 was Fairly Tale Dreams, I interpreted this to be magical, sparkly, knight in shining armor. The challenge with decorating for a dance is the extremely large space. The dance was held in a gymnasium, yes the same one that hosts basketball games, wrestling matches and cheer leading practice.
In 2010 I attempted to fill the large space with poms, this year I took a more logical route by densely decorating the entrance. I used iridescent fabric to hide halogen lighting. I created a large castle like entrance arch, hung bright and metallic tassels all around the room.
It was certainly a challenge but I am happy with the results.
