Post-prom parties have become more popular in recent years. Not only are they a fun way to finish out a perfect evening, but they also can keep prom-goers safe. The peace of mind for parents is a welcome benefit as well. No matter the size of the party, renting can take a lot of the work out of your hands. In addition, you’ll save money by renting what you need at a fraction of the cost, if purchased outright.
Make no mistake, post-prom parties are notoriously late-nighters. Therefore, it’s important to have activities to keep everyone engaged. Keep in mind that many students and parents most likely had a tiring day already. They’ve been planning for this night for a long time, and with the last-minute preparations, picking up the dress or tuxedo, last-minute make-up and grooming, it is important to keep them active. If the students or chaperones find themselves sitting down for any length of time, odds are that the long day could catch up with them.
Post prom parties are unique in that nearly all of the partygoers are of the same relative age and mindset. Being high school juniors and seniors, that means that many of them enjoy a being their own entertainment. Having games and activities that will allow the most outgoing of the group to exercise a little showmanship in front of their friends can make a lot of long, lasting memories.
Once you’ve taken into account the amount of space available for your party, consider these activities:
- Arcade-style electronic basketball.
- Video projector/screen for displaying memorable high school pictures or for use with gaming consoles for party style games, such as Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution.
- Hula hoop or limbo contests.
- Obstacle courses.
- Laser tag.
- Rock walls.
- Popcorn or soft drink concessions.
- Bungee runs.
- Face painters or caricature artists.
- Photo booth.
