Feature Prom Planning Checklist >> Prom Night Backdrop
We used to love Stumps Party (and their sister site Shindigz) for all things prom and we definitely think their old prom planning checklist is well worth sharing. Today we turn to Anderson's Party for all things Homecoming and Prom!

Order After Prom Supplies
After prom events are a popular and fun way to keep teens safe and entertained long into the wee hours of the morning. No matter if you are planning a large after prom party or a low-key post prom gathering in your home, always be sure to require parent pick-ups. Never allow your teens to drive home. Tired driving is just as unsafe as impaired driving. We know from experience so please, please, please never let anyone, adult or teen drive home themselves if they attended an all night event!
Last Minute Details
❑ Check in with your vendors to make sure all orders are on schedule.
❑ Lay-out a rough draft of your venue and how it will be decorated.
❑ Come up with a game plan for the decorating committee for the day of prom.
