A Night to Remember: Decorating for Prom with Decals

WOW! It sure was “A Night to Remember!” … a formal evening of dinner, dancing and friends for people ages 16-30 with special needs.

Everybody’s utterly AMAZING evening started as special needs guests enjoyed pampering at a salon and then a luxurious limousine ride to Twelve Oaks Mansion. Once there, prom-goers walked the red carpet and had pictures snapped by paparazzi before sitting down to an elegant dinner.  And of course, no prom is complete without a night filled with dancing!

Right On The Walls had the privilege to be just one small part of this wonderful event sponsored by Discovery Christian Church in our local Pittsburgh area.

“Boss lady” Bunny and aspiring make-up artist Logan were two Right On The Walls staff members who volunteered to take part. At a nearby salon, they set up shop to do make-up application in preparation for the big night. (Logan did the ‘tough stuff’, and Bunny was the assistant in charge of lipstick application! lol) 

Makeup-SetupSmile pretty, Logan! You’ll be busy in a minute when all the young prom-goers arrive.

Prom-MakeupIt was quite the whirlwind of activity as Logan and Bunny got down to business applying make-up for 16 young ladies in only about 2 hours! Pretty impressive! Other volunteers took on the hair and nails duties for all the excited young women. It was a full service salon, I’d say!

Rom-BeautiesLooking good, girls! Two of the glammed-out ladies (finished with hair, make-up and nails) stopped by one last time so we could admire their beauty and snap a quick pic before they hopped into their waiting limo!

Makeup-Application-PromLast one!
Great job, Logan! What a blast!

Twelve-OaksRush! Rush! Rush! Hardly a minute to spare as we scurried to put all the make-up supplies away in order to follow the limos to Twelve Oaks Mansion so we could see the red carpet parade!

Prom-Red-CarpetWhew, that was close. Just in time!

(At the end of this post, you’ll find the video that documents the entire evening of glamour, food and fun for everybody involved. Don’t miss it!)

Prom-ProgramA good friend of ours, graphic designer Jeremy Stebler,
came up with the original logo and program.

After Jeremy finished up on his end, he provided the logo to us at Right On The Walls — and we got to work on creating matching decorative accessories to take the prom to the next level! :)

Event-Floor-Decal-PromThe HUGE dance floor decal hot off the printer here in our shop.

Prom-Dance-Floor-DecalFast-forward to the day of the event … OMG, just look how large the dance floor decal really is compared to the DJ booth in the background. But don’t worry, Boss Lady Bunny installed it in less than 10 minutes with no problems!

A-Night_to-Remember-PromThe decal sure attracted a LOT of attention!

Event-Logo-DecalThen, we created an all-white version of the logo…

Prom-Soda-Bar-LogoAnd that all-white logo looked especially outstanding when Bunny applied it to the soda bar. This really helped to tie the whole event together and incorporate the prom logo and theme throughout the venue.

Soda-Bar-Wall-Decal-LogoHere we have a couple of other volunteers grabbing a soda and admiring our decal.

Printing-StickersFinally, Right On The Walls printed smaller die-cut stickers for the goody bags.

Prom-Goodie-Bag-StickersRow after row … there’s one for everyone! The goody bags were handed out at the end of the evening and contained donations from various local businesses including a t-shirt, gift cards and other surprises.

Prom-Bag-Logo-StickersGoody bags are a special added touch & the stickers look great!

As you can see, adding Right On The Walls vinyl decals to any event really coordinates everything into one big SNAZZY occasion. Your event transforms from bland to BOOM! with just a few simple decorating accessories.

Here’s the video I mentioned earlier: Please take a moment to watch this extra-special event video put together for Discovery Christian Church!
