My floor theme this semester is going to be Steven Universe and I’m just about done with all of the characters. I just have a few more to paint and then just need to hang them up. I hung up Lapis today and I am so excited!!
First I was thinking about 90s toys,then I got 90s Nickelodeon cartoon on the brain.
But then I started thinking about a Harry potter theme and i had really cool ideas for door decs D: (a wand with a spell coming out of it that would spell out their name.)
I think I will be doing the Harry Potter theme eventually (maybe next semester!) I had a lot of ideas for decorations and programs. But the reason I’m not doing it now, was because while brainstorming with my Boyfriend (who was an RA for 4 years) I thought of something that we both loved.
Yes, I know it’s a children’s tv show, but I loved Blue as a little kid and I still do. My freshmen are old going to be a year or 2 younger then me, so most of them will remember Blue. I think this is going to be a fun theme and it’ll help my residents after a long stressful day of classes and come home to Blue and be reminded of just being a kid and enjoying life :)
I think I’ve finally thought of an idea for my door decs/floor theme for my wing this fall!! It’s a little tough because I have an all guys wing…I’m used to coed, but we shall see.
Idea 1: Video game themed
For the door decs I want to put a ‘vintage’ video game console on each door, along with the controllers coming out of them with my residents names with a “PLAYER 1” sign. The rest of the wing would be decorated with popular old games like Mario, Donkey Kong, PacMan, and Crash Bandicoot.
The board for this idea is stumping me a little bit. Any ideas?
Idea 2: Medieval Quest
Each door would have on it a Knight and a Dragon, with the residents names. The rest of the wing would be decorated with castles, damsels in distress, and other medieval quest-y things (maybe evil wizards? I dunno).
I think my board would have something to do with “Adventures” and tips to surviving the first year of university.
I'm going to have sophomores next year and we're going to be in a brand new residence hall. Any ideas for door decs and hall themes?
hmmm…i don’t really think sophomores are much different than freshman when it comes to hall themes and door dec themes. some of the ones i’ve seen/done are:
despicable me harry potter hunger games back to the 90’s (i did boy bands) tetris black swan up twitter (sounds tacky, but i saw the some cool door decs around this theme) one of my fellow RAs did, a 2012 overview and made door decs that were like the olympic rings, a ballot box, a february calendar (for leap day) and things like that which was really cool.
