18th Birthday Party Ideas

We introduce some authentic and very fun 18th birthday party ideas for the younger ones to have a great time. Coming of age isn’t something that happens every day and it’s only logical to celebrate it with a special party. If you want to organise something surprising, continue reading and learn about the most innovative and sensational plans.

What are debutante balls?

The debutante balls are parties celebrated in honour of the birthday male stripper or girl. Some people throw these kinds of events going all out. People dress very elegantly and the party takes place at a luxury hotel. However, more economic parties can be organised that are adaptable to any budget.

Booking limousines in Barcelona is a very common activity that allows guests to move from one place to another in total comfort. These luxury vehicles have limited capacity, so only a select few will be able to enjoy the ride. Typically, the guest of honour and their closest group arrive at the party in this special and glamorous way.

Dinners with karaoke

The debutante balls in Barcelona are special. They can be celebrated however you want, we’ve already talked about the fact of renting a limousine. But, there are many more 18th birthday party ideas, for instance, dinners with karaoke.

Here it’s not about singing well and being in tune, but having a great time. At DESPIDALIA we have a very special package consisting of dinner karaoke, one of the best activities you can access. You only need to contact us to take care of everything.

Shows with undercover characters included

Another one of the coolest original birthday activities in Barcelona are the shows with undercover characters. Why not? This activity can start while you’re dining or just after finishing to liven up the evening. Either way, you’ll have a great time.

These characters will do everything in their power to ensure you have a blast: fake waiters, surprise guests, actors, etc. Opt for the dinner + show plan and it will be the best ending for a banner party.

Unusual themed parties

Among the original birthday ideas you will find at DESPIDALIA, there are themed parties. With them, anything you imagine can become a reality.

Imagine you’re in a science fiction movie or that your party is filled with pirates with hooks and eye patches. Perhaps you want to experience a medieval party with damsels and knights, or even live a night of horror with your favourite scary characters.

Treasure hunt, guaranteed fun


The treasure hunt, one of the most fun 18th birthday party ideas you’ll find. There’s nothing like doing an outdoor route through the city of Barcelona, whether in a natural setting or in the city. The goal is to put your common sense and skills into practice, as in the case of It’s a Knockout, which works just like the famous Japanese show.
