GLAMOROUS white dresses, beautiful bouquets and boys in kilts sweeping young women off their feet will be the scene at St Mary's Hall on Saturday night.

The 64th annual Warwick Caledonian Debutante Ball will be the chance for 27 radiant young women and their partners to be presented into society.

Debutante and Year 11 Warwick State High School student Demi Quirk said it was an easy decision to choose the Caledonian ball.

"I was a flower girl at the 2006 ball, I do Highland dancing and have danced at the ball before," Demi said.

"I am really excited about it and to get dressed up, look beautiful and have a good night.

"It has been fun so far with a little bit of hard work when learning the dance."

Deportment teacher to the debutantes Anne Coy said the girls and their partners had done a wonderful job so far.

"They have their last practice on Thursday night and have done well to fit everything into such a short space of time," Mrs Coy said.

"They have all been very good and so happy to participate."

Warwick Caledonian life member Iris Cutmore said there were only a few tickets left for what promised to be a wonderful night.

"Last year we had 420 people attend and have so far sold 360 tickets and still have (tomorrow) night to go," Mrs Cutmore said.

"We are expecting around 400 people will attend again.

"Tickets will not be sold on the night so anyone interested in buying any should contact me before Saturday night on 4661 3547."
