Great 18th Birthday Party in Double Dome Marquees

Plenty of 18th Birthday party ideas here. One of the most exciting 18th's held at a magnificent private venue. Dinner in the main hall followed by dancing and cocktails until 4am. Then not much sleeping in a marquee all kitted out with bedding and breakfast. All designed, organised, executed and cleared up by Capability Events.

Festival-themed joint 18th / 50th Birthday Party with Scouting for Girls and Toploader

We loved designing and producing this joint 18th / 50th Festival Themed Birthday Party.  Scouting for Girls and Toploader smashed out the party hits and guests danced late into the late night to our top club DJ's.

350 guests arrived to a champagne drinks reception all decked out in their best chic festival gear. Flower headbands, glitter face paints and henna tattoos abounded as guests excitedly ran around the mini fest greeting their friends and popping in and out of the festival themed photobooth.

With staff serving pints of festival cocktails (to cut down on the queueing) guests were soon in the party mood and gave Toploader a rapturous welcome with even the 18 year olds belting out Dancing in the Moonlight as the full moon rose over the event (it really was a full moon!).

After Toploader came the main event - Scouting for Girls absolutely nailed it for the birthday girl - even getting her up on stage to join in and singing happy birthday to her. Truly a great moment.

Guest grazed on stone baked pizzas freshly rolled from soft dough in front of them, pork rolls, ice cream and chocolate brownies. There was even an artisan coffee horse box trailer to keep guests going until the early hours. At one point I found my cocktail guys getting fresh espressos to mix into their cocktails resulting in little sleep for everyone. But, hey - you're only 18 once!

A great party - even our most experienced party planners got over excited on this one. There is even talk of a "Next Time..."

  3. Decide on your guest list – Write it down and stay realistic. Most 18th’s are 80 to 150 guests.
  4. Discuss your initial ideas with others – Parents – talk to your kids, kids – talk to your parents!
  5. Think about how much you want to spend – This is the hardest part. Realistically the 18th Birthday Parties we organise range from 5k to 30k. From £100 to £150 per head – depending on your requirements.
  6. Imagine what will happen on the night – Do you want a drink on arrival? Do you want circus acts? Do you want food? Write this all down so you have a specification for your party and if you are short of ideas, we have thousands we’ll share with you for free!

Notes for Parents Organising an 18th Birthday Party:

If you’re the Parent or Guardian and let’s not beat about the bush here, the person paying the bill, we understand a successful party is a balance between your budget and your teenager’s vision of their absolute dream party.  As creative event organisers, we are almost always able to provide a number of practical solutions to make the dream a reality.

We know that each 18th Birthday Party is unique to the person celebrating their “coming of age” and we are highly experienced in the many different requirements that are so much a part of this important milestone. Our vast experience and the creativity we put into each and every 18th Birthday Party guarantees that it will be the most talked about event of the year. From the very first, no-obligation consultation we have with you, until the very last bit of clearing up is done – we take the responsibility to be in absolute control throughout every stage of your event.

Part of the success of our outstanding parties is that we control excess without obviously doing so. In this way you get excellent value for money with more than satisfied guests.

We take our responsibility for young people extremely seriously but they will never know that. We allow them free cocktails and drinks all night but have subtle ways of ensuring that the little darlings last till midnight rather than getting tired and emotional by 9pm. We have found it is better to stay in control of the alcohol consumption with expert bar staff tailoring drinks to the guests, rather than restricting spirits which only encourages pre-drinking and bringing their own alcohol to the party. We advise that you allow us to thin the cocktails, if needed, in order to keep the excess in control. Do Call Ben Leeke to discuss your fears – rest assured he’s done this plenty of times before – 07590 242526.

We wanted to send an email and thank you and everyone who contributed to such an amazing event, it was spectacular! Everyone was totally blown away. Nothing had been overlooked and it was obviously meticulously planned. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to you and all your staff for pulling off such an amazing party. It’s the talk of the town. We had so many comments on how lovely and friendly the staff were and extremely professional. We will definitely be using your services again and hopefully soon.
