Fab Up Your Life

6 things you need for an awesome Prom after-party courtesy of the PromGirl fashion show


 
On Friday night, GL editors Jess and Kelsey attended the PromGirl fashion show in NYC. (Check out our tweets and photos from the show, here.) Besides plenty of pink, sparkly dresses and crazy amounts of candy, here are six important things they learned are key to an awesome Prom after-party:

 

1. Fun (preferably pink) photo backdrop
There’s no easier way to remember the magic of prom night than with a pre-set photo booth backdrop, complete with props. On your must list? A cute tiara, feather boas and oversized sunnies. Post the pics on FB the day after for all to see (and tag)!
 

2. DIY candy bar
We loved how PromGirl partnered with Handsome Dan’s Candy to pass out mini mason jars that guests could fill up to their hearts’ content with sugary sweets. (Psst: Candy is key for keeping up your guests’ energy!)
 

 

3. Real life runway show
We got to glimpse the latest Prom fashions on Friday, and were head-over-heels for the new spring trends. From neon to hi-low hemlines to floor-length sequins, there’s definitely something for every girl. Show off your crew’s fab fashion sense by asking each guest to strut her stuff down a mini runway when you take pictures before the dance. So maj!
 

 

4. Haute hair station
After a long night full of dancing, your glam updo is prolly not lookin’ so hot. Set up a table with extra bobbies, heat tools, hair spray and dry shampoo and ask friends to lend each other a helping hand. Updos saved!
 

5. Sweet swag bags
Gift your girls a cute tote emblazoned with your Prom’s tagline and stuffed full of goodies, like soft hair ties, mini perfume and pretty beaded bracelets, like the ones PromGirl gave out from Alex + Ani. Love!
 

6. Puppies. ‘Nuf said
Fact: Puppies make any party better. We squealed when @TommyPom made an appearance on the PromGirl runway, and even got a chance to cuddle with him post-show. Adorbs!
