18th birthdays are considered to be one of the most important milestones in a young Filipina’s life. It’s a time where family and friends come together to celebrate the debutante’s transition into adulthood. While the classic ballroom theme is one of the cornerstones for debuts, we put together a list of fun and creative debut themes for the out-of-the-box lady. These themes are just a dream!

Mamma Mia!

Nothing beats the iconic, cultural icon, Mamma Mia. Dress up your event space with a blue and white color scheme straight from Greece and sing your heart out to ABBA’s greatest hits! This theme is recommended for ladies who are not too big a fan of a black tie dress code, since Mamma Mia’s design is more laid back and casual. We’re swooning just thinking about the linen dresses, denim overalls, and beachy hair waves!

Music Festival

From internationally-acclaimed Coachella to local favorite Wanderland, music festivals are all the rage especially for ladies who love music. Opt for a debut venue in Manila with natural light for that fun and airy atmosphere! With a program filled with performances from live bands, there’s no doubt that this works for a casual and fun celebration.

Starry, Starry Night

This theme is for the aspiring artist of the family, or the lady who’s a fan of the iconic painter, Vincent Van Gogh. Deep, dark blues accented with yellow strokes or stars make for a beautiful recreation of Van Gogh’s inspiring painting. To tie in Van Gogh the whole event together, why not have his iconic 18 Sunflowers instead of 18 Roses? This visually exciting theme is truly fit for the creative in the family.


Nothing beats a debut theme that truly represents the celebrant’s personality. While we might not be able to hold grand celebrations soon, these unique themes can help make future occasions and even more memorable and meaningful celebrations! If we were 18, we’d definitely bookmark these debut themes to go with the perfect debut venue in Manila.
