High school class reunions allow former students to reconnect with their school, relive memories, and rekindle friendships and sometimes romances. A 30th high school reunion celebration usually includes a theme. Some themes revolve around the past and reminiscing; others focus on the present or the future, or are timeless. Whatever the theme, a 30th high school reunion should incorporate fun glimpses of the past, celebration of the present and expectation for the future.

High School Prom Theme

A 30th class reunion can take on a sentimental vibe when you re-create the class's senior prom theme. Use photos and memories to re-create prom night 30 years later. Try to reserve the same building at which your prom was held. Use the same colour schemes and the same or similar props to decorate the facility. Incorporate dancing into the reunion activities and play music that was popular in the graduation year.

Graduating Decade Theme

A 30th high school reunion is an opportune time for guests to relive their high school days. Choose music and decor items to create an atmosphere reminiscent of the high school era. Encourage guests to wear clothes that were typical in the era. Plan reunion activities that revolve around the era. For instance, include board or video games that were popular during the graduating year. Have these games set up around the reunion facility.

General Themes

Practically any theme can be used at a 30th high school reunion, such as a western, Hollywood or pirate theme. Incorporate sentimental surprises and activities into any theme to make it specific to your class. For instance, with a Hawaiian luau theme, put fun trivia facts about the year of graduation, printed on tropical flower theme paper, onto tables. Honour the reunion king and queen with a lei instead of a tiara and crown.

Looking Forward Themes

As much as 30th high school reunion guests want to reminisce, they also want to look forward to a bright future. Peek into the future with a futuristic reunion theme. Add 100 years to the year of graduation and predict how the world will look that year. A model robot statue or cardboard cutout is a good visual element for this type of theme. Have a few robots and mechanical-looking devices as decor items around the room. Ask guests to make predictions about the school, the community and the world.
