Debutante ball in Barcelona

A debutante ball in Spain isn’t common, though it’s clear that more of these types of parties are being celebrated. After all, reaching adulthood definitely deserves a celebration because it marks a milestone in life. If you want to experience the arrival of adulthood in style, the 18th birthday party is the way to go, especially with a debutante ball in Barcelona. After all, you only turn 18 once and it should be a unique birthday party.

A debutante ball in Barcelona for everyone

You might think that debutante balls are reserved only for a select few, especially because the general idea is of a hotel, formal suits, and lots of people applauding the debutantes as they come out. Everything very elegant, and expensive.
Nothing could be further from the truth. You can organise a splendid debutante ball by tailoring the celebration to your budget. Let’s see what you think about these ideas.

A limousine ride for a debutante ball

As the occasion truly warrants it, the ideal thing to do is to book limousines for attendees to travel in. You can all go this way or gather your closest group of friends and take a tour around Barcelona enjoying the city, while the others await your arrival at the party venue.

The dinner, as you like it

You don’t necessarily have to hire a hotel for the celebration. In Barcelona, there are restaurants specialised in all types of celebrations, that can adapt to any theme. You just have to look around a bit and choose one that is convenient for everyone or offers exactly what you’re looking for. From dinners with a show to evenings with a few surprises, the list of options for these dinners is endless.

Other activities to spice up the debutante ball

There are many other ideas to make your debutante ball spectacular and memorable for everyone. If you like to sing, there’s nothing better than going to a karaoke to enjoy your favourite songs and see how the others do. It’s an idea that is sure to attract a lot of people.
You can also celebrate your coming of age by dancing. The nightclubs open their doors for you, because 18 is the minimum age for you to be let in. Why wait any longer? Just make sure that all your guests are also of age, otherwise, someone might end up staying outside.

If it’s summer, there’s nothing better than a boat party in Barcelona for groups. With food, drinks, a dip in the sea, etc. If it’s a small group and you want privacy then a sailing trip for parties is ideal.

If you prefer something calmer but just as fun, during or after dinner you can have a performance. For instance, you can hire a stand-up comedian to entertain the evening with a personalised show, poking fun at you, especially at the one celebrating their debutante ball. Everyone will have a great time and it will also be a unique performance because it adapts to the group.

What would you like to do on your 18th birthday?

If you’re turning 18, or if someone close to you is, why not take the opportunity to throw a party? With these ideas, you can certainly organise the best debutante ball in Barcelona.
