The Venue

A marquee at the client’s house

The Party
When the initial enquiry surfaced for an 18th birthday party at a client’s house, we firstly had to see if the house would be suitable to hold a marquee. After a site visit with one of our preferred suppliers, we were able to come up with a spectacular design in the client’s back garden. This involved the challenge of boarding over an outdoor swimming pool to create a stable flooring structure.

As this was for an 18th birthday, we discussed different concepts for theming – what could we produce to really celebrate this coming of age? From here, the idea to turn the marquee into a nightclub as the theme for the party evolved, and so, we applied this to the construction by building a private entrance and walkway for guests to arrive through – a truly VIP feel, which was also reflected in luxury bathrooms we installed. To create the atmosphere inside, we used clever lighting, bespoke furniture, dark materials and fabrics such as a black starlit ceiling and black walls, as well as dark purple carpet throughout. To create the visual that the client was looking for, furniture was specifically selected; mirrored table tops and chairs wrapped in a purple velvet fabric to match the colour scheme complimented the mood. We even incorporated a screen into the marquee to present a video speech to the birthday boy! In addition, we built a black stage into the marquee and used an LED DJ booth, bar and a black LED dance floor, which furthered the luxury nightclub feel.

When the day of the party finally arrived, guests entered what was known to them as their friend’s home and were wowed as they were transported through to a nightclub on their doorstep. One of our talented photographers was there on the night to capture special moments for the client to create ever lasting memories. As cocktails and canapés started to flow, guests were greeted by one of our fantastic DJs who got the atmosphere going from the moment the guests walked in!

Everybody had a fantastic evening and the dancefloor was full the entire night!
