18th, 21st or 60th. Whatever milestone your celebration, a marquee is the ideal location for a big birthday celebration. They provide a blank canvas, allowing you to choose the theme and decorations that best suits the person of the hour. And there really are no limits to what you can do. Here are just a few ways you can style a marquee for those special birthday moments.

Checkerboard Dance Floor

Dancing is compulsory when it comes to birthday celebrations – whether it’s after a few cocktails or not. And, adding a statement dance floor to your marquee is a sure fire way to encourage everyone to get up and move. Checkerboard dance floors are easy to incorporate into any theme with their black and white design. They are simple to install, can be fitted in all different sizes and are durable enough to use all night long.

Luxury Bar Furniture

Whether it’s a flute of bubbles or a refreshing beer that wets the whistle of the birthday girl/boy, the right bar furniture can transform an event. Our LED bars can be illuminated in any light colour and joined together to form a half or full circle. If you’re going for a rustic theme, we have 7ft bar options that fit in beautifully and can also be paired with our wooden folding chairs. Or, our high-top trestles are also available for hire and can be decorated to match your theme.


One of the most impactful things you can choose in a marquee is the lighting. Our Starlight Linings fill the entire roof with twinkling stars – the perfect touch of magic. If the big 5-0 calls for something elegant, we have beautifully crafted chandeliers in gilt, ivory or black that are provided in sets of 8 or 12. Or, if you’re looking to take the party outside, our garden uplighters and festoons ensure everywhere is illuminated elegantly throughout the night.

Colourful linings

Does the birthday girl/boy have a favourite colour? Make sure the decorations are to their exacting standards. The marquee’s ivory linings conceal all of the marquee’s framework and electrical wiring. Coloured overlays and swags can be used to personalise the marquee. And we’ll make them work seamlessly within your chosen environment.
