After my last post I was sick for several days and then we went out of town again so I am just now getting to posting these pictures. These pictures were taken the actual day of banquet. The Juniors did not have class on that day so that they could finish last minute preparation. We had to sweep, set the tables, get the tunnel outside ready, and finish up the food for the meal that would be served that night. Then in the late afternoon while the junior and seniors were getting all dressed up the rest of the school and staff could do a walk through of the banquet hall to see what all had been done. We rushed through and just took a few pictures.
This is how the table was set. You can't tell all that is on the table but the kids did an amazing job setting it. The centerpiece bowl was made by the juniors. It had sand inside with shells and a party favor(which they also made) for each of them to take home.
They even made the hanging lamps! The tables had a board connecting them to make a ship.
Some of the sophmore class is chosen to be servers at the banquet. During the walk through they did various things to add to the set like in this pic. they were paddling a boat.

Each couple had to walk all the way up the hill as people lined the walkway. Then when they got to the banquet hall they came down these steps onto the platform and were introduced to the crowd.
