Friday Night Dance Party!

Friday night was the 8th grade graduation dance which the 7th grade hosts.  As part of my duties as a 7th grade parent I was able to help decorate and get everything ready for the dance.  It was hard work but I think we pulled off a great dance! Peter had fun anyway!

However, because I was setting everything up for the dance and because Dan was travelling and didn't get home until 10:00 PM on Saturday, my parents had to fill in to help get Peter ready for the dance.

Peter has been sporting a nice little mustache for most of this school year.  However, a friend did him a favor and told him his payment was shaving off his mustache.  Peter gladly obliged so my dad helped him with that before the dance.

Of course, being a good blogger, I took before and after photos.  And of course, Peter being 13, made me promise not to post them.

However, I am going to post these pictures:

My dad helping Peter with his tie.

So handsome!

The 7th graders escorted in the 8th graders.  Peter was a little nervous about this task but I think he did a great job.  It didn't help matters that all the parents were there snapping pictures like crazed paparazzi!
Out theme for the dance was "glow" and here are just a few pictures of how we tried to transform the cafeteria:





Everything looked even cooler when the sun went down.

Peter said he had a great time.  I hope all the kids did - especially the 8th graders!  It was fun working with the other moms putting it all together!

That was beautifully decorated! The glow theme was clever. These spring dances do run into the "sun still out" dilemma. I just helped with my kids' school's eighth grade graduation dance. The theme was "Paris Nights" which involved a lot of tulle and fairy lights, which looked magical once it got dark. I like dances where it looks cool but is easy to clean up. (Too many night deconstructing some parents amazing vision mas made me skeptical of excess.)
