Our daughter, along with the other high school senior class officers were quite suprised when they were told by their principal that they would be in charge of planning their 2018 senior prom. A number of typical and unique venues were contacted, but because of the small number of attendees, a directive to keep the cost down, and a late start in the booking season, they found the location choices to be limited. Other options were considered, one of which was to put the prom together on their own. So our daughter approached us and we agreed to help with the project.
No restaurant. No amusement park. No club. No boat. In other words, we would need to build this prom from the ground up. Of course we always love a blank canvas. And this empty airport hangar was a blank canvas indeed.
A 1920’s theme was agreed upon which made the creative part of the project lots of fun. Numerous hours were put into the pre-planning which included coordination of entertainment, catering, rentals, props and decor, labor, security, guest activities, location, promotion, ticket sales, logistics, permits and working with the school administration.
The celebration had a variety of elements including:
-A VIP red carpet entrance
-Appetizer table for arriving guests
-Amazing pasta bar buffet
-Gourmet soda bar with custom named drinks
-Lounge and game area on the upper grass terrace
-Outside lounge and standing drink tables

-Elegant 1920’s photo scene
-World class magician
-1920’s dance review
-Delectable ice cream sundae and dessert bar
-Two vintage bi-planes and three antique cars
-Guest take-away gifts
The day finally arrived and it was time to fly in the props.
