FIND THE BEST 18TH BIRTHDAY PARTY VENUES IN BRISBANE

OK we get it, your 18th is coming up and it needs to be a big one. Everyone is going all out for their 18th birthday, Brisbane has fifty every Saturday and most of them are forgotten and not just because of all the booze. So we get it, yours has to be special – well we got you.

We’re not gonna mess around with basic 18th birthday party ideas like ‘Hey my name start’s with a T so everyone dress as something that starts with a T!’ (Super hilarious transformers costume dude, hope it’s still funny when you have to pay the surcharge for an Uber XL).

What we’re going to do is do everything right. Let’s go through the list, k? View our top birthday party ideas and tips below.

Congratulations, you’ve lasted 18 years on this dangerous planet without sacrificing much more than your dignity (and trust us, it’s over rated anyway). So now that you’re a little older and maybe just a little wiser, we think the time has come to reward yourself with a not so grown up 18th birthday party. With this in mind the team from The Fox Hotel proudly presents “The backwards birthday” because you can’t turn back the clock, but at least you can turn the tables.


START WITH DESSERT AND THEN WORK YOUR WAY BACK TO THE ENTRÉE

It’s your 18th birthday party and that means you make the rules! So why bother delaying satisfaction for a single second longer? Cake before steak is our personal motto! Just remember to kiss the closest person if you touch the bottom…of the plate.


FLIP ‘EM OFF!

Turn your 18th birthday venue on its head and see how people react! Skip the helium balloons and dangle them upside down from the ceiling instead, pin the donkey on it’s tail and make your guests put their shirts on backwards (if you play your cards right that last one usually ends up happening anyway).


START FROM THE ‘DNE’ (END)
