Senior Ball 2007

Posted in: Life & Culture

The 2007 Senior Ball was last Saturday night, and as a member of the planning committee, I feel it is my duty to share with you all the exciting event secrets. Seniors took a break from their theses to celebrate, among other things, the first two consecutive days of nice weather since November. The ball was titled "As Time Goes By" and the theme was Casablanca

We held it at the Boston Sheraton

In this picture, the Sheraton is the building with the red lights directly to the right of the Prudential Tower

Here are the 10 awesome members of the Senior Ball planning committee. Yes, we're all girls. The odds are good...

Here are Cathie and Kavita, who focused on design for the event. Notice the casablanca lilies!!1!!cos(0)!! I applaud your careful attention to detail, ladies

Crazy tents

People love them!!

Lost in the drapery

Sorry for all these tent photos. They were amazing.

For table centerpieces, we ordered Moroccan lanterns.

They don't look like much in these photographs,

but they created a nice feeling at the tables, no? (Especially when they illuminate butter)

Dinner tables

Our gift/party favor was a cocktail shaker. Fun yet practical

During dinner, we had a jazz band play

And then a DJ for post-dinner dancing

People go nuts

Five points if you can spot the rock star formerly known as Bryan in this picture

Some creative folks took pre-event pictures in Killian Court, where we will graduate in less than a month. Sniff

that looks a lot more fun than highschool prom!

That's such a great theme - everything (and everyone) looked beautiful. My high school prom themes were all fairly uncreative.

Funny story about those butter balls. A couple of weeks ago we had our Junior/Senior Banquet. And at this banquet there were nice, small appetizers before our big meal. Cheesecake (Which I thought was a dessert), salad, crackers, and cheese balls. At least that is what we thought until we shoved some in our mouth. BLEH!
