Did you know that you can buy columns that are made out of some light stuff in
a prom decoration catalogue? These catalogues feature theme
decorations...everything from pyramids to Eiffel towers. If you teach in a
highschool see the person who is running the prom, or semi formal, or whatever
dances you may have. They probably have the catalogues. I couldn't give you any
names, because it has been years since I was in charge of the prom. Of course
you may want the challenge of making the entire set....I, when doing scenery many
moons ago, would use every trick in the book to make it work, and would not find
buying set pieces from a catalogue for cheap, beneath me.
