One of the first tasks you'll have to accomplish as you plan your debut is to pick a theme. With so many possibilities out there, you want to narrow down your ideas so that all your debut elements look like they belong together, and not like they were combined at random. 

Having worked with various debutantes and debuts, Charisse Tinio of Nice Print Photographyknows a lot about different concepts for debuts. Below, she shares five of the most popular debut themes she's seen. 

Check out her list of popular debut themes for inspiration.

1  Vintage
If you're a fanatic of the classics, you'll probably love a vintage-themed debut. Take inspiration from Audrey Hepburn’s wholesome and elegant looks on and off the camera. With Audrey as inspiration, your debut will be as timeless as her unparalleled style. Incorporate pearls in your ensemble and décor to effortlessly achieve that vintage theme.

2  Candy Land
Sure, you'll be turning 18, but that doesn't mean you have to throw all traces of playfulness out the window. Take cue from Katy Perry's video by making Candy Land come alive at your debut. Decorate your venue with oversized sweets, and have a candy buffet, too. In true Katy style, don colorful outfits to show your bubbly personality.

3  High fashion
If you fancy reading fashion magazines and sharing your OOTD on Instagram, consider having high fashion as your debut inspiration. You may have a red carpet with a photo wall, and even organize a glam fashion show with your close friends as co-models. Ask guests to come in their fashion-forward outfits-and then give out awards for the best dressed attendees.

4  Luau
Whether or not your birthday falls on a summer month, a luau-themed party will be perfect if you’re a pretty chill debutante. Keep your guests cool with fresh fruits and shakes, which can be served out of coconuts or pineapple rinds. Dress up in a fun grass skirt, and even prepare a dance number if you want. Also, greet guests with leis as they arrive at the venue.

5  Fairytale
Achieve that YOLO moment by making your debut your own fairytale. Most little girls dream of being a princess, and you can finally fulfill that dream at your party. This presents you with the perfect opportunity to wear a bouffant ball gown and a tiara, plus your folks would love the fact that a traditional cotillion would still suit your fairytale-themed party.
