We know just how important it is to plan a birthday celebration that not only gives you the opportunity to celebrate and party with your friends and family, but that also stands out and creates memories that last a lifetime.

So, what can you do to make it an event that no one will ever forget? A marquee might be the answer you’re looking for.

How to plan and host a memorable marquee birthday bash

When it comes to birthday celebrations, the key is to create an experience that reflects your individuality and resonates with your guests. Opting for a marquee provides the ideal backdrop for such a celebration, offering flexibility, customisation, and a unique ambiance. By integrating these elements into your birthday planning, you can ensure an unforgettable experience that goes beyond the ordinary, leaving everyone with cherished memories of your special day.

Let’s take a look at some of the key elements you should think about when planning your birthday event.

1. Pick your location

Choosing where you want to host your marquee event can be a huge part of what makes it amazing. Whether you want to set up in a picturesque location, such as a waterfront setting, or in your own back garden is completely up to you. Do note that hiring a separate venue to pitch up can add to your total costs, so it’s worth doing some digging to find out the best options for your budget.

2. Choose a Theme

Infuse personality into your celebration by selecting a theme that resonates with you. Whether it’s vintage Hollywood glam, Ibiza beach party, Great Gatsby or a masquerade ball, your chosen theme sets the stage for a truly unique experience. Your venue is also a huge part of this, providing the backdrop to bring your theme to life, so choosing one that fits with your concept is vital.

3. Create ambient lighting

Transform your event area into a magical space with carefully curated ambient lighting. String lights, chandeliers, festoon lights and lanterns can add a touch of enchantment, creating an inviting atmosphere for your guests. If you choose to host your party in a marquee, this allows you to experiment with different lighting setups, enhancing the overall ambiance of your celebration.

4. Provide plenty of entertainment

It’s important to keep your guests entertained and the energy high. Choose between live music or a DJ spinning all your favourite floor fillers. Make sure you choose to host somewhere that has a dancefloor, giving your guests plenty of space to throw some shapes and show off their signature dance moves.

5. Offer a range of culinary delights

Cater to diverse tastes by curating a menu that tantalises the taste buds. Whether you opt for a gourmet dinner, food stations, or a buffet, marquees can accommodate various catering setups. The open layout allows for creative culinary displays, adding an element of surprise and delight to your birthday feast.

6. Create your own cocktail menu

If you’re planning on serving drinks at your party (which we would highly recommend!), why not build your own cocktail menu? You can dedicate a stylish bar area within your space, offering guests a unique and interactive experience with handcrafted cocktails. And while the team at TM Event Hire don’t offer bar services, we do supply a range of premium mobile bar options to entice your guests.

7. Build space for your guests to relax

Ensure your guests have ample opportunities to relax and enjoy the celebration. Incorporate comfortable seating areas, complete with cosy lounges and stylish furniture. This creates inviting spaces for intimate conversations, enhancing the overall experience of your birthday bash.
