Lost Birthday Party - How to Make your Big Birthday Even More Memorable

20 Jun 22

The pandemic certainly had a large impact upon all of our lives, and as we slowly work our way back to normality after the past two years, it’s safe to say there is a lot of time to be made up for. Operating within the events industry, we saw many of our clients who had been planning large scale occasions for years, experience the devastation of having to cancel them due to the regulations put in place as a result of Covid-19. Everyone must know someone who’s milestone birthdays were lost to the pandemic, with many missing out on the opportunity to celebrate everything from sweet 16 parties to their 21st to their 60th and beyond.

Special Birthdays

However, just because you couldn’t celebrate then, it doesn’t mean you can’t mark the occasion now instead. We’ve seen many people make their 41st birthday the new 40th, going bigger and better than ever before to make up for lost time. Expand your guest list, plan a huge banquet, book your dream venue, and make it the party of your legends. Now we know how quickly everything can change so it’s more important than ever to live in the moment and make lifelong memories with those you love and care about in your life.

At Allens Catering Equipment and Furniture Hire, we have everything you need to put on an impressive occasion for all your family and friends, truly making it a night to remember! With years of experience of delivering to a variety of celebrations, we have a great range of products to help with your vision when it comes to your next birthday bash. Our team will be happy to provide you with recommendations and advice so that you don’t forget a thing.

As well as all the essentials, such as furniture and tableware in so many different styles, catering equipment and appliances, we have a number of unique products available for hire that will add the perfect finishing touch to any event. From dance floors to multi-coloured LED bars, read on to find out all the ways you can go the extra mile and truly have the most wonderful birthday.

Dance Floors

The ideal centrepiece for any occasion, a dance floor is just the thing you need to get the party started at your next birthday party. The perfect source of endless fun, it can be a great ice breaker at any large event, helping your guests to relax and dance the night away. So whether you’re having your big solo or leading the party in a rendition of The Macarena, you have a designated space to bust some moves.

At Allens Hire, we can help you to create a custom dance floor that works seamlessly with your dream venue and is large enough to accommodate your guest list. Create whatever size or shape you need with our corners, edges, and panels, that can be easily moved wherever you need a dance space in your venue.

Bring it Outdoors

Are you planning on having a birthday celebration in summer? Hiring a venue that has access to outdoor space could be just the thing you need to create some beautiful memories. However, as we all know the British summertime can be a little unreliable, so renting some pop up tents is a great solution so that you have some shelter in case the weather turns suddenly. Not only does it provide cover from rain, but also means that on an especially warm day or during a heatwave, there is somewhere for older guests and children to find some shade and cool off.

Plus, if you’re considering an outdoor space, another special touch can be a BBQ, a Paella Pan and burner set, or even a hog roast! At Allens Hire, we have a great choice of gas and charcoal BBQs in a variety of sizes so that you can cook for the whole party, including fuel supplies should you need that too. When the weather’s hot it can be a fun and fuss free way to cater for your event, and something your guests might not be expecting.

Roll out the Red Carpet

Finally, it’s so important that for your birthday you make sure the venue looks it’s best, which is why you should find the perfect décor to match your event. At Allens Hire, we have a great selection of products that you can choose from to go the extra mile, so that your guests will be talking about this party for a long time after it’s over.

Why not add a touch of exclusivity and Hollywood glamour with a velvet rope and stand ? Or create a perfect photo opportunity with a luxurious light up mirror ? We even have easels and boards in both black and gold , so that you can write a personalised message at the entrance as your guests walk in. Not only this, but our coat rail and hangers can create a professional cloakroom in no time, so that your guests have somewhere to stash their coats and belongings, something which really makes the difference. The options are endless with the atmosphere you want to create, simply browse our range of products and find exactly what you need to throw a wonderful birthday party to remember.
