My younger daughter, who is a freshman in college, is going to the prom at her old high school this weekend. Since this is not "her" prom, just her date's, I won't be hosting the after-prom breakfast I have had for the last couple of years. So I thought I would stroll down Memory Lane and tour Proms Past!

This was in 2006. The theme was something like "Tropical Beach." This was the first use of my blue and green goblets, which now are used all summer long, especially on our porch! I got them at CVS Pharmacy for 75 cents each. I made punch and served it from the silver punch bowl passed down from my grandmother. I used a paper plaid runner that has luckily survived to this day with no spills!!!

For my centerpiece, I hollowed out a pineapple to act as my vase. I got a mixed bouquet from Sam's Club (back when mine carried flowers) and arranged them in the pineapple.
