Some parents are outraged over junior prom souvenirs. Copper Hills High School students are getting glassware that look like beer mugs and champagne glasses. That’s what Gary Davis’ son brought home from school after he bought his prom tickets. Davis says, “I was shocked, appalled that this type of material was given out by the school to underage kids.” Concerned parents say these glasses send a mixed – and dangerous – message to high school students.

Where is the Prom Queen now? Molly Ringwald has kept busy all these years as an actress on the stage. Read this great article from the Orlando Sentinel
Don’t assume that Ringwald is embarrassed about those old movies or that she is going to bad-mouth Ally Sheedy or Anthony Michael Hall. She just has moved on, and she wishes the public would too.
“I really enjoyed the movies I was doing back then,” she says on the phone from Birmingham, Ala., where Sweet Charity made a stop a couple of weeks back. “They made an incredible impact on my generation and on the generation after me.
“When my daughter’s ready to watch them, it’ll be interesting to watch them with her. But they were so long ago.”

Welcome to Project Prom. Our judges chose the top four dress concepts submitted by local fashion design college students, and now each designer will have $500 from Fabric Place and one month to bring her sketch to life. Four high schoolers will win the custom gowns and get to show them off in a Macy’s fashion show and in the May 13 Globe Magazine.
See the designs chosen to compete and see interviews with the contestants. Good luck to all! Any other contests inspired by Project Runway like this out there? Let me know!

Courtney-Cotrelle Cromartie isn’t being conceited when he says he “wasn’t worried about the competition.”
The 22-year-old, named Saturday as the Top Aspiring Fashion Designer in the Pensacola Bay Area at the second annual Project Prom, said he was concerned about one thing only during the competition: making sure client Amber Matejka was happy.
“That was very important to me,” he said. “I think it was important to all the designers.”

You cannot deny the influence of romance on Proms and Formal Events. People sometimes fall in love at these events and the feeling of affection is almost everywhere you look as people dance and talk. A popular symbol used in decorating these is the Heart symbol. Usually red, it does appear in other colors. Since it looks nothing like the human heart have you ever wondered where it came from? What is it? The answer is that it’s still a mystery to the world.
Some have said it looks like the heart of a cow, or of a turtle. Historians have noticed it could depict features of the human female body. It has been seen on ancient coins from the city of Cyrene (a formerly Greek city, founded in c.630 BCE, now in modern day Libya), some of which depict the seeds or fruit of the extinct silphium plant. The seeds are heart-shaped. The plant was widely used as an ancient herbal contraceptive so this shape may have come to be associated with sexuality and love through that connection. What is of interest is that there is no set moment of its creation, it just seems to have come through time as a symbol for the human heart and affection. How appropriate that the symbol for love is just as elusive and varied in description as Love itself.

Here are some tips to help you decide:
Think about the type of prom you want to have, and see if your school has developed the guidelines for the prom colors, decorations etc. so you don’t make a lot of plans and then have to change them. Some themes are central where the students dress in theme with the decorations, or it can be specified as a theme to be appreciated as the backdrop alone. Whatever theme you choose make sure it fits the personality and customs of your student body. Don’t have a Disco Fever Night at your school if you know that no one listens to that genre for example.
