A Night under the Stars party can be a very elegant event and is a very popular theme for prom season and sweet sixteen celebrations.

But the theme can also go the other way too. For example, you can also combine some of these ideas and take your starry night party theme in a totally different direction, with a campout themed party.

Probably one of the reasons that the party theme is so popular is that it is so easy to find star shaped everything! It is easy to make and purchase star shaped party gear for all aspects of the party.

Here are a few ideas to get you started with this classic party theme...
