To clarify, one of my best friends threw a party for *their* friend, who, having grown up in Ireland together, missed out on the American Teen Prom that they heard about through exported young-adult media.
They had balloons, punch, a band stage, and a photo booth. (That mural is the photo backdrop!)
They crowned a king and queen, and someone intermittently role played the stodgy chaperone, keeping everyone from dancing *too* close (she had a ruler just to be sure).
