Homecoming Ideas and Themes

We've got everything you need for your homecoming event--from the small stuff (like tiaras, balloons with your school name, imprinted lanyards, favors like glow jewelry and more) to the big stuff (props for your float or dance, giant 3-D letters to get your team name across and even large football helmets you can personalize with your team name).
So let's get started.
homecoming dance invitations
Depending on your homecoming dance theme, we have all kinds of invitations to suit!  Check out these popular themes for invitations:
Decorations for the Football Field

Homecoming is one of the biggest social events of the year, and it is a fantastic time to show your school spirit to the world (or at least to your rival team!)

The week of homecoming (Spirit Week), assign each class a hallway somewhere in the school and let them decorate it in a way that displays their school spirit. We recommend balloons and gossamer to get you started, they both make a huge impact. Then add in handmade signs and, if you have a window, glass chalk.

Decorating is a snap with spirit kits. The giant personalized football is perfect focal point for the field. Have the team enter under the football star arch. Students can line up and release balloons and throw confetti as your team runs by. Have your mascot follow the team and run around the field waving your team letter flag. This will get the crowd excited and ready to watch the game!

Make sure your marching band is carrying a personalized banner in the homecoming parade and on the field. You can customize the banners with your team and school name, as well as your school colors.

If you need decorations for a homecoming parade float, try these float kits. Add on some balloons and gossamer in your school colors and your all set!

Decorate Yourself for the Big Game
One of the most important decorations during homecoming is the students themselves. Wearing your school colors is just the start! Wearing face paint for the big game is a fantastic way to support your team, whether you go for a full face of color, or just a #1 on your cheek. Add on some glow jewelry in your school colors for a unique spirit look.

Another great wearable are custom Funtoos, just submit your own artwork, school logo, or team mascot to be turned into temporary tattoo! Hand out pom poms in the bleachers so everyone can root on the team to victory!

Spirit pins are another fantastic way to show school spirit. Unlike the face paint, you can keep the pin as a fun memento of homecoming and spirit week.
decorate the homecoming dance
The Homecoming dance is the best top off to spirit week.  You can do the traditional classy dance in the school colors, grab balloons, streamers, gossamer and even fabric to hide the gym decor!
Theme dances are always a great time!  Here are a couple of our favorites:
Whatever you choose to do, we know you'll have a blast at the homecoming dance!
homecoming dance party favors
The Homecoming dance is a fun event, so send everyone off with some fun party favors.  These imprinted photo keychains are great for dance pictures.  Personalize a mint and candy tin with your school colors and logo. Depending on the theme of your dance make sure to have tons of leis for a Luau theme, beads for Mardi Gras, and tiaras and top hats for Hollwood theme.

Have a fantastic Homecoming from the Party Girl and Party411!
