Tips for planning an 18th birthday party in Brisbane

Now that you know the types of birthday party venues and themes available, it's time to get on with planning your 18th birthday party in Brisbane! Here are some tips for how to do so:

Choose an appropriate venue

How many guests will be at your 18th birthday party? The venue should fit this number comfortably without overcrowding. Make sure you consider any requirements for entry to the venue, such as dress standards. Visit your chosen birthday party venue in person if it's possible and ask to take a look around.

If you're planning to invite people from outside of Brisbane, be aware that they may require accommodation. Take this into account when searching for birthday party venues in Brisbane near the airport. Give yourself plenty of time to book a hotel room, particularly during peak times like New Year's Eve!

Find out about entertainment options

Are there live bands or DJs at your birthday party venue? If so, check their schedules before booking. Determine how many entertainers you will need and whether they do custom birthday parties. If you're bringing in your own entertainment, secure their services months in advance and have a backup plan in case your main act has to cancel at the last minute.

Invite guests well before the date

It's very important to give your guests plenty of notice so everyone has enough time to plan a night out for your Brisbane birthday party. For small Brisbane birthday parties of 15-20 people, email invitations are fine but as the guest list grows you may want to consider a formal 18th birthday party invitation.

Delegate the work

If you take on all the pre-party planning and day-of duties, you won't be able enjoy the party itself. Ask your friends to help you out instead by inviting guests and buying birthday party favours, decorations and food, or by greeting guests at the door and helping set up the decorations before the party.

Don't stress

Remember not to put too much pressure on yourself — remember: it's just a birthday! Make sure your guests enjoy themselves by having games and activities organized in advance so that everyone is involved.

Make arrangements for cleanup and transportation

Whether you enlist friends or hire professionals, be sure to set up plans for cleanup as well as transportation! Cleanup is usually included in the venue rate but some venues do ask for a separate post-event cleanup fee. Make sure all of your guests get home safely by arranging rides with designated drivers amongst your group.
