My friend Jody and I went shopping one day and found a super cute sequiny black dress in Old Navy of all places and decided...hmm, where could we wear this? Vegas? No...too expensive. Where else...Prom?

With that, the prom party was born. On 4th of July Eve we hosted the ultimate prom party appropriately themed "IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME." We got a little into the decorations and bought stars to dangle from the ceiling, a disco ball, and many props for prom-themed photo ops. I painted the very prommy Seattle skyline backdrop, and poked Christmas lights through it to simulate stars. We kept the dress code pretty flexible, some people went true-to-form floor length gown prom, others went 80's, or thrift shop prom, all in all it was a great time!
