Not all teenagers can say their parents know how to party — but Antonia Gorga can! Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga just threw a pre-prom party for their daughter, and not a single detail was overlooked. From a mobile bar to marquee lights, this party had it all, and it took place before the real party even began!

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

In her Instagram Stories from June 14, The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom shared a look at a crowded tent set up outside her home. Teenagers in dresses, tuxes, and corsages milled about as their parents snapped their photos. “Wow, everybody really showed up for prom this year,” Melissa said, narrating the video. “Prom 2023. It’s packed at the Gorgas’ house!” 

It’s no wonder the party drew a crowd. Melissa’s later posts showed off fabulous decor, which included an elaborate pink, silver, and white balloon installation from Don’t Pop the Party. There was more in the decor department: Giant illuminated marquee letters from Alpha Lit spelled out Prom 2023. 

And speaking of delicious, there were plenty of snacks, sweets, and sips on offer. B&M Market set up a station offering grab-and-go nibbles, and there was also a colorful candy cart from Curbside Confections. “You need this truck at every party!” Melissa captioned a photo, which showed her, Joe, and Antonia posing with swirly lollipops and Tootsie Rolls in hand.  

For the parents in the house, a mobile bar offered cocktails. “How cute is this little mobile cocktail bar? I’m obsessed,” Melissa said, showing a video of the boozy attraction. “Born to Rum. How clever is that?”

She was quick to note that the alcohol was not for any of the high school students in attendance. “This is for the adults only,” she clarified. In another post, Melissa summed up her feelings on the celebratory day. “I cried a lot today,” she wrote. “Loved hosting prom for my baby [Antonia Gorga].”

Antonia’s Gorgeous Prom Dress

For the milestone event, Antonia dressed in style. The New Jersey teen, who’s headed to the University of Delaware in the fall, wore the prettiest pink dress for her senior prom. 

Melissa shared several pics of her daughter’s hot pink gown and added a few proud-mom sentiments. “Have the time of your life [Antonia],” Melissa began her caption. “We are so proud of the human that you’ve become[…] you’ll always be my baby girl.” 

Antonia’s look came from New Jersey’s Castle Couture. The bright dress featured a structured corset bodice with boning detail and off-the-shoulder draping.

Melissa and Joe also throw epic bashes at their Jersey Shore house, which has its own oceanside beach club! Tour the property in the clip above.
