Post-Lockdown Big Birthday Party Ideas

While we’re in the middle of a pandemic, everyone has had to put their lives on hold, and for some that has meant having to cancel or postpone milestone celebrations, such as engagements, weddings, and birthdays

Should your birthday happen to be in the middle of lockdown, there are still plenty of options to make sure you have the best day, but no matter whether you are postponing the celebrations for after the lockdown, or if you’re planning a special event for next year or beyond, everyone loves a party!

If you’re planning a special birthday party for an 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 70th or even 100th birthday, finding a venue will high on your to-do list. Taking advantage of marquee hire in Bromley means you have a fantastic celebration right in your back garden!

18th and 21st birthday parties

Parents will understand all too well the challenges of finding exciting party ideas every year, and as they reach adulthood, you’ll want to make sure you have that covered.

Having the party in your back garden means you can be involved in the boisterous fun (and maybe keep an eye on proceedings), but you can escape to the safety of your sofa. A marquee is a perfect idea, whatever the British weather decides to do that day!

There will be options such as adding a dance floor and disco lighting, and it’s easy to decorate with fairy lights, plants, flowers, beanbags, deckchairs, balloons, Mexican-inspired pom-pom bunting, retro neon lights – and maybe even a piñata.

30th, 40th, 50th

By the time you find you’ve become a proper grown-up, you’ll realise that you can have whatever kind of party you want! A theme is light-hearted and breaks the ice if you’re inviting a mixture of friends old and new, work colleagues, family and neighbours. Your theme can be anything you like, from your favourite decade, film, book, whatever sparks your imagination.

You might be less inclined to use fairy lights and piñatas for a more grown-up party, but there are always ways to dress up a marquee, such as chandeliers, and spotlighting for speeches. But no matter your age, everyone will still want disco lights for the dancefloor!

70th to 100th

You might want to focus more on a seated lunch, dinner, or afternoon tea, for a more sedate celebration, but that’s not to say no-one will want a dance floor and disco lights!

What it all comes down to is that it’s your party, so you can do whatever you choose! There’s so much scope for how to utilise a marquee to suit the personality of the birthday girl or boy.
