Since your students are about 15, you can't have the wine and stuff like that...hehehehe... but here are some other suggestions.
1) TEA! and lots of it! have lemon wedges and sugar cubes and some milk...that is very cheap to do...
2) crumpets, scones and some other pastries....
3) a buffet style dinner, with sliced ham and roast beef, with some greens, assorted breads, etc.
4) and of course, fruit and cheese!
you could also have soda there, just to appease them, but they can always drink water!
For music, you could possibly get a small string quartet (does your school have an orchestra?)...or just a piano player (I'm sure one of the music teachers would be able to help you out with that)...and with the music, anything from the classical or baroque period would be fine....Mozart, Bach, Hadyn, Handel...you could even throw some Chopin or Beethoven in there (the kids wouldn't know the difference).
Decorations, are a different matter... where are you having the dance? depending on your settings, your decorations will have to go along with that variable...the easiest thing to do would probably be to buy some long swatches of fabric, and drape them over collumn-type things.... from all the pictures (plates) I have seen of the regency balls, there weren't any decorations as we know them...but you can improvise on that...watch the Netherfield Ball scenes in P&P2 (A&E's version) and see if you can get any ideas from that...
I hope this helps, and let us know how it turns out!
