I'd have to say my first experience with Prom was pretty fabulous and having a theme of Great Gatsby certainly didn't hurt. My teacher friend Cara and I volunteered to be chaperones and since she's the theatre teacher and I'm an art teacher it seemed only appropriate to go all out.
It took us months to assemble the pieces to our 20's flapper costumes. A special shout-out to Mrs. Novy for doing our hair an hour before the kids arrived and to Dillards for having an amazing selection of 20's inspired dresses. It was such a fun evening getting to dress up and being the 'Who Wore It Best' dress crew. They did such a fab job of creating the Gatsby theme and I think the kids really enjoyed it, and if they didn't I know there's three women who certainly did.
