All about the 2015 NWA Mom Prom!

prom theme 2015Tickets are on sale NOW for the third annual NWA Mom Prom: A Night in the Tropics! Are you in?

Because this year’s Mom Prom on May 30, 2015 is so close to summer, we thought it would be fun to put a tropical twist on this “Prom with a purpose.”

There’s no need for grass skirts or coconut shell tops. Just wear something you love to dance in — and enjoy the tropical colors, island decor and maybe a fruity drink.

The first two NWA Mom Proms were a HUGE hit. And this year’s Mom Prom is shaping up to be even bigger and better! Click HERE to order your tickets for the Mom Prom to be held at the brand new Metroplex Event Center in Springdale on May 30th. This year you have the option of purchasing a whole table for 10!

Here are a few other highlights about this year’s prom:

saving grace logoWE’RE HELPING SAVING GRACE: This year the prom will benefit a local non-profit called Saving Grace.

Founded right here in Northwest Arkansas, Saving Grace is a safe place for young women who have aged out of the foster care system. Ages 17 to 25, these girls are taught life skills, financial peace and are connected with three mentors who hep them begin their adult lives in a positive way.

brieshiGLAM SQUAD AT YOUR SERVICE: The “Mom Prom Glam Squad” stylists and make-up artists from Brieshi Salon and Spa in Rogers will be BACK this year! These talented ladies will touch up your make-up and fix any fly-away hair for you — free of charge! Haven’t you always wanted your own glam squad, just like the celebrities use? Well, now you do.

You’ll want to let the Glam Squad get you all fixed up before you visit the Photo Shoot Station, which will be sponsored this year by Melinda Worthington of MJW Photography.  She’s so talented and we KNOW these prom pics will be amazing. Once again, all photos will be available for free download a week or two after Prom night.

15573-flooringamericaYOU ARE A DANCING QUEEN: Thanks a million to Flooring America for sponsoring our dance floor again this year! Woo-hoo!

The dance floor is always hopping at Mom Prom! Since there are no guys, it’s just a fun GNO. We LOVE that the prom always has such a welcoming group of women every year.

Come as you are and have a blast! There are no judgey ladies, we promise. Just a whole lotta FUN.

AND MAYBE A PROM QUEEN: One lucky lady will be crowned the 2015 NWA Prom Queen! The Prom Queen at our tropics-themed prom is sponsored by Tropical Smoothie Cafe! Appropriate, huh? The Prom Queen isn’t selected based on popular vote — anybody can win the title. The winner will be chosen at random from among everyone who bought a ticket. It could be you!

The queen will be awarded an awesome prize package, a sash, flowers and a crown, of course! Thank you Tropical Smoothie for sponsoring our queen!

LET’S EAT! We’re so excited that My Brother’s Salsa will be catering the 2015 NWA Mom Prom! The head mama, Helen, will actually be there whipping up custom quesadillas for you beautiful prom ladies! The company got its name from the recipe that Helen’s older brother gave her. It inspired the Original Salsa. They also have Black Bean and Corn, Fire Roasted, House and Tomatillo. Helen will be bringing several of these salsa lines for you to sample at the Salsa Bar! My Brother’s Salsa is in over 1,000 stores across the United States.

Click here to read about the first jar that hit the shelves 10 years ago. And this isn’t salsa-related, but you’ve got to see this French-themed birthday party for Helen’s granddaughter where she helped the party guests cook. Such cute party ideas!

DON’T FORGET THE FRUIT! We HAD to have fruit at a tropical-themed Mom Prom and Edible Arrangements in Fayetteville is making sure you ladies will have lots to choose from! Owner Laverne, a mama of 2 and grandmother of 5, will be bringing arrangements made out of all kinds of fruit like strawberries, melons, and, of course, pineapple.

These arrangements are so pretty — and delicious!

THE PHOTO BOOTH IS BACK! Because the Prom photos were SO popular last year, we’ve added an additional photo area to this year’s Mom Prom. (You can take pics in both areas!) There’ll be the Photo Shoot station, just like last year. And there will also be a traditional Photo Booth Machine that you climb into with a few friends.

The photo booth will print your picture card immediately so you’ll have a memory to take home and put on your fridge immediately. The Photo Booth is sponsored by Sisters Mercy Women’s Health Boutique.


TheMustache_Fay-Bent_CS5_TMNEW CELEBRITY DATES! The celebrity guys were a HUGE hit last year. Those hunks were hauled from one end of the ballroom to the other (and visited at least one hotel room before coming back downstairs to party!).

Sponsored by The Mustache Goods & Wears, we’ll have some new dates for you to dance with and snap pics with this year!

We still love these guys, but we’ll also have some brand new celebrity prom dates this year! Thanks, Mustache!

bedford_logoOUR PRICELESS PRINTING SPONSOR: Thanks a million to Bedford Camera & Video for sponsoring all of our printed items, including posters and postcards for the event.

Your prom pictures will be free for download, but you’ll want prints. Bedford is a great place to get them. The quality is GREAT and they also make beautiful photo books. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a whole book of prom memories to flip through?

Of course, they also sell amazing cameras if you’re in the market 🙂

A NEW PLACE TO PARTY: This year our event will be at the brand new Metroplex Even Center in Springdale. It’s so gorgeous and we can’t wait ’til you see it.

Here’s a map so you can find the new Metroplex Event Center:
