You only turn 18 once, and I wanted to make sure that my daughter’s eighteenth birthday celebration was one she would never forget. Our entire family is very social, so I knew that I would need to find a venue that could host at least a couple of hundred people. I also knew that I would need to do some research on party entertainment in London because I did not want to leave anything out of this very special celebration. I thought finding the venue would be hard, but it was actually very easy.
We chose a place that is central to where we all live, so no one would have to travel more than 30 minutes or so to get there. The next thing on my list was finding the party entertainment. I was not sure what I wanted, but I knew that I would recognize it as soon as I did see it. Again, it was very easy to find the company we wanted to use to provide the entertainment at her surprise party. This company does it all, from private events to huge corporate events. I knew that we would need some musical entertainment, but I was actually able to find even more than that with this entertainment company.
I hired a band that plays music from several different decades. That way, my daughter and her friends can dance to what they enjoy, but us older folks could also show the younger ones our own dance moves to our favorite songs from yesteryear. I also hired face painters and an elaborate photo booth to round out the party since we would have a lot of younger kids there. My daughter never suspected a single thing, and she was the most surprised I have ever seen her when we walked into the private venue. She thought we were going to a party for her grandparents, so she truly was surprised when everyone hollered out greetings to her. It was such a fun day, and we may have to do this again even before the next milestone in our lives.
