If you’re the parent of a high school girl or boy, then you know how big of a deal prom really is to these kids. It doesn’t matter if they are planning on going to the formal with a date or if they’re going stag with a group of friends, this is the one high school formal event that they HAVE to attend. Not only must they go to prom, they have to find the perfect prom dress, suit or tuxedo so they look as great as they feel.
While prom itself is fun for kids, a lot of kids get in trouble after prom because they want to stay up all night. There isn’t anything wrong with this, since that’s what prom is all about. However, when kids go out to clubs, hotels and country parties, things can take a quick turn for the worse. This is why so many parents around the country get together every year and organize after prom parties for the kids attend from midnight to six or so in the morning.
If you are interested in organizing an after prom party for your teen’s class, here are a few ideas:Casino Night – In order to pull off a Casino Night after-prom party, you will need to have at least 10 other parents helping you with it…for a small class – you’ll need more volunteers for larger classes. This can be a lot of fun for the kids though. Basically, set up different tables with different casino games (black jack, poker, roulette, etc.) and give the kids fake money when they come in so they can start playing immediately. Consider having a “bar” where kids can order cocktails such as a Bloody Mary, Margarita, Strawberry Daiquiri, etc. – all non-alcoholic, of course.
