Creative Ways to Ask Your Date to Prom

“Hey, do ya’ wanna go to a dance?” “Sure. I guess so,” is the lame way to ask a girl or a guy to a prom. Nowadays everything is much more exciting, fun, and refreshing. The standard boy asks girl no longer exists. Today, girls ask boys, and this is considered the norm, when once it was considered a taboo. It’s much more fun to invite or answer an invitation for a date creatively. The following are some suggestions for asking your date to prom in a creative manner.
Write your prom information on small slips of paper (time, place, date, type of dress, etc.) then slip each one into a different balloon. Inflate the balloons and tie them together with ribbon or make a bouquet out of them. Deliver to your date’s house, classroom, or work.
Borrow your younger brother’s remote control car, or airplane, and tape the invitation to it. Knock on your date’s door and then hide. When your date answers the door, drive the toy airplane or car up and deliver the invitation.
Slip the prom information, as well as you asking your date out to prom, into a fortune cookie. Get a small takeout box from a nearby Chinese restaurant and deliver it. You could also take your date out to Chinese food and work it out with the restaurant ahead of time to give your date the “prepared” fortune cookie (if you do this you may want to have an unwrapped cookie given to you too so it doesn’t seem so obvious).
Check out your date’s yard and decide on three to five hiding places for messages. Map it out and be creative in how many steps and what kind of steps to take from place to place. Leave a piece of candy and a “good job” note at all but the last place. Leave the invitation at the last one. Make a map for your date to follow. On the map write, “Follow this map. Your Friday night may depend on it.” Not only will you have a great time seeing your date have fun with the scavenger hunt, but they will appreciate the effort as well.
Wrap the invitation in aluminum foil and bake it in a cake. Put a clue in writing (in frosting) on the cake so they eat it quickly and find the invitation on time. This way asking your date to prom is fun and very very YUMMY!
Put the invitation in an ice cube. The message could say, “Please don’t leave me out in the cold. Say that you’ll go out with me this coming . . .” or “It would be really cool if you’d . . .” Or put the message on a Popsicle.
Spell out the invitation using plastic silverware and leave a picture so your date knows who it is from. You can also achieve the same effect using Alpha Bits Cereal, or alphabet pasta to write out the invitation.
Put Hershey’s kisses in the front doorway of their house. “Now that I’ve kissed the ground you walk on, will you . . .” The rest is history.
Put the question in a piñata with lots of candy.
Deliver a tape with a message on it, “Your date, should you choose to accept it, will be with ________ at _________ time on ________(day). You will be picked up by a person wearing ________. Your date will feel like s/he may self-destruct if you do not reply by ________.”
Serenade less than one of your date’s windows. This is still a classic yet hip approach to asking anyone out to prom.
Decorate your date’s car and leave the invitation on the windshield wiper.
Ask your date to prom by lighting a whole bunch of candles at the beach while the candles spell out, “Go to prom with me?” This is another classic yet romantic way of asking that special someone to prom.
