How’s your week been? Apologies for not checking in sooner, but I was under the weather the past few days (allergies, I think), but am grateful to be feeling good again! In much more fun news, I want to invite to you to prom! Virtual Prom Around the World, that is. Here are the details…



You may have caught on my Instagram Stories the other night that the idea of hosting a virtual prom came to me at 1am while watching an episode of Jimmy Fallon at Home. (Side bar: His shows from his home are the cutest – his little daughter Winnie cracks me up!).


He was singing a funny song, Prom with Your Mom, since so many teens might be missing out on prom this year. And, it got me to thinking how it could be fun to host a virtual adult prom on Instagram. Just something fun and silly we can all do – dress up in our prom best (or worst!) — for a fun few hours at home. The goal: to lift our spirits!

 Many of you voted on Stories that you were IN for the idea, so let’s do it!

 Here are the details…



Date: Saturday, April 4th 

Time: 5:30pm PST/8:30pm EST

What: Dress up in a fancy frock – whether it’s a terrible old bridesmaid dress or a beautiful gown you’ve been dying to wear (or a tux).

Why: This is all about lifting spirits, having fun + feeling part of a community – socializing while social distancing, if you will.

Where: Your House, My House. I’ll be going live on Instagram @kellygolightly (I’ve never gone live before, so this should be interesting!). But the plan is to invite in prom guests throughout the night + just have a good time!

 How: To participate, simply dress up + post a pic or video of yourself celebrating prom with the hashtag #promaroundtheworld. Tell me where you live too! We’ll all be able to see one another in a fun party around the world! And I’ll repost to my Stories!




Time: 6:30pm PST/9:30pm EST

Via ZOOM.  Meeting ID = 980-132-369. 

Participants can use phone or laptop – but must have video on so we can check student ID’s ( and avoid spammers )

Zoom Client at:



PC / Mac:

This should be a fun family-friendly event. Chaperone will be present, but we do expect the punch will be spiked! 🙂



While prom is free, I’d love to add a charitable element, because while it’s wonderful to uplift our spirits, wouldn’t it be SO nice to uplift those who need to most?

PLEASE DONATE to No Kid Hungry to help keep kids fed during this COVID-19 pandemic — and beyond.

Millions of kids depend on school lunches as their main meal. No Kid Hungry is mobilizing to make sure those kids still get their meals safely during this time.

Any little bit helps.

$10 = 100 meals!


Fred Baby and I will be matching donations up to $2500.

Thank you SO much in advance for anything you can do.


Should We Have a Prom Committee?

 Prom committee, anyone?

I’m happy to tackle decorations and Fred Baby said he’s happy to be on punch patrol.

But I fully encourage you to decorate if you want to, come up with your own drink recipes, etc. and share with the hashtag #promaroundtheworld.

Or, even form your own mini committees. This should be 100% NOT stressful and 100% fun – feel free to make it your own!


Anyone want to volunteer to make a Prom Playlist?

Music gurus out there? Would love help with a prom playlist!

 Okay, that’s the gist for now…

I hope you’re as excited about as I am. A fun distraction and a fun way to come together — albeit virtually — to lift each other’s spirits.


Oh, and please do share this invitation/post! The more the merrier!


Note: All ages are welcome, but please note the intent of this is an adult prom, as the majority of our audience is 25+ so I’m sure some cocktails may be involved. As always, drink responsibly.
