Happy 1987!!!! Well, actually it is 2012
Recently our local High School had the annual “Prom”.
In honor of this rite of passage for teens, we decided as grown ups, (some of us actually parents of Prom age teenagers) to have our own Prom.
Let me back track….Our friends and I have a little gathering every few months we like to call, “Dinner Group”. I wrote about our fun night the last time Mark and I hosted it here at our home, you can read about that HERE.
We have had some fun themes over the years. One night, we did all gourmet “sauces” over steak. Mark and I dressed alike, not on purpose (this was pointed out to us upon arrival at our friend’s home). He even wore his sweater around his neck to match my scarf (that was on purpose).
The most fun we have had to date was our Prom
The whole Group, (including some extra guests)
Each of us dressed up in 80’s style Prom dresses and the guy’s took their own version of 80’s style for men.
My friend decked the house out in all things 80’s. A disco ball, glow necklaces, and lots of neon.
For dinner we had Shrimp Cocktail, served around a Martini glass, Caesar Salad, Fettucine Alfredo, Broccoli and Cauliflower with a Cheese Sauce, and Bananas Foster for dessert.
Thanks to Pandora radio and Itunes, we had the best 80’s play list of music I have ever heard. We danced the night away and (those of us who actually lived through the 80’s as teens), were transported back to our teenage years and all the fun of our youth.
Mark and I were feeling so nostalgic, we even watched this Friday night:
The best part of the night? We all actually “liked” our dates. No jealousies, no sympathy dates, no going with your best friend or sister.
It was a night to remember……
