It was a Gatsby sort of night

Last evening was the annual Spring Formal for the youth. My kids invited Oliva, Tatum and Lucas to join them, so after driving five hours home from our Philadelphia getaway, the kids began getting ready for the dance.

The theme of this year’s Spring Formal was 1920’s Red Carpet. It was such a fun theme to dress up for and one all the kids embraced with enthusiasm, especially my flapper girls!

All the kids looked great!

The dance was a hit. Gracie declared it the “best Spring Formal ever!” There were waiters carrying around food on trays, a popcorn bar, and an Italian flavored soda bar for the kids to enjoy.

The church gym was transformed into a 1920’s dance hall with twinkling lights, stars, a photo booth and a movie screen that alternated shots of the kids dancing on the dance floor with old 1920’s dance clips.

Gracie said even the music that was played was a nice mix of contemporary songs, 1920’s songs, and slow dance songs.

It was a magical, Gatsby sort of night.
