The theme – Sarongs & Thongs, proved popular with the ladies arriving in their favourite Sarongs & colourful thongs (sandals). The BCP/Lusito Banqueting Hall was decorated according to the theme with lots of summer colours, beach umbrellas and of course beach sand, a BIG Thank you to Wally from Gideon’s Flowers & Functions for kindly sponsoring the décor.
