Don’t overlook the obvious when it comes to choosing a dance theme. What time of year is it? Is Halloween around the corner? Maybe the holiday season is coming up. Are there any National appreciation days that could be taken advantage of? Maybe National Donut Day is just around the corner. That would make for a pretty delicious themed snack table. Don’t ever underestimate the importance of food at your upcoming school dance! Not only do snack tables and refreshments make for happier students, but they also help ease potentially awkward social encounters.
