  • Tips on how to host a responsible school formal and underage events.  Hosting a responsible school formal can be a challenge, but here are some tips to help you prevent drinking as much as possible:
  • Here are a few great school formal themes to consider for your next school formal. The school formal is a time of year that everyone looks forward to, as it’s a time that they can dress up, dance, and just let their hair down after months of studying hard.


Throughout my years of planning school formal parties and events, I've come to an important realization: much as I want to, I can't do it all!

There are thousands of tiny details that go into planning a succesful school formal, so much for one person to keep track of. In the beginning, I would try to do it all myself. Over time, I came to accept that I needed help and so I found people to work with. I've never regretted it—my Red Scooter team has made the school formal-planning process not only easier, but a whole lot more fun.

If you're trying to put together your own school formal planning team, here are a few things that helped me to find the right people to work with:


  • With so many aspects of each event to plan, it's so easy for things to go wrong. You have to know that you can delegate a task to someone and they'll actually follow through and do it. This means finding people you can trust, and bringing them onto your formal-planning team. You need to trust their sense of taste and style as well as their ability to complete a task on time. A team filled with people you can trust is one guaranteed to succeed!


  • You're going to be spending hours sitting in a room with these people, planning all the ins and outs of the formal. You will become like a family, but remember that families fight! Your relationship with your event planning team should be built in mutual appreciation and trust. In the end, the fact that you genuinely like each other will help you to work through the disagreements.


  • A team of "yes men and women" is going to fail. You need people who will present a contrasting opinion and alternatives to your idea. It's always tough to hear them out at first, but over time you'll come to realize that these contrasts make your school formal venue event planning even more beautiful and successful. Those differences of opinion will give you a much better-rounded pool of information.


  • If you're a whiz at the technical set-up, find someone to be your Master of Ceremonies. If you're organized down to the minute, find someone who has an eye for décor, color, and art. You have a certain set of skills, but it's no doubt incomplete. You need to find a team of students that will compliment your skillset and provide the support and expertise in the areas where you aren't as confident. A well-rounded team is the key to making a school formal that is organized, beautiful, enjoyable, and flawless.

It's not easy to put together a school formal event-planning team you can trust. It's taken me Eammon Hamilton over 20 years to bring together my Red Scooter team, and we're always on the prowl for ways to improve and add to our team. But by following these four rules above, I believe I've put together the best possible team—and our events reflect it!

Red Scooter is the venue of your dreams. I hosted my 21st Birthday here and was blown away with the service, the whole setup and the way my event went seamlessly! The Red Scooter team are absolutely lovely and will go above and beyond to make your event exactly what you're picturing! I've attending other functions of friends and family in this space and am in awe at how it changes to suit individual style and theme.

There is a reason for my review and I will not remove it. I attended a wedding there the week of the review and your in-house speaker system meant we couldn't hear the speeches. There were a lot more issues throughout the night including rude staff.

Thank you again so much for Tuesday night. We had a great time at Tali’s bat mitzvah. The venue was just perfect for the occasion. The downstairs room set up with auditorium seating worked really well. The upstairs room felt spacious and cozy at the same time. You were a delight to work with and I appreciated your calm and easy going demeanour.

The Presentation College Windsor Year 12 formal was a treat. Red Scooter, capably managed by Eammon Hamilton, ensured that our evening was smooth and enjoyable. Overall, our students found the occasion memorable even if they didn't eat all of their dinner! There was some waste. Although I loved the stuffed chicken on a bed of mushrooms I guess I should have realised that kids don't like mushrooms............or so it seems. Anyway, they devoured the desserts. Thank you, Eammon and Red Scooter.

We recently attended our friends wedding function at Red Scooter, was possibly the best wedding we have ever attended. Wedding was conducted down stairs, which was excellent, simple and cosy warm environment. After some group pictures outside we headed upstairs to a nicely laid out foyer area with a bar, where we were served some good variety of finger food as we relaxed. The curtains were opened up to a beautifully laid out function area with dance floor. The evening was a great success, enjoyable and hat goes off to a well organised & executed night.

Cannot thank Red Scooter enough! 5 years ago myself and my husband got married here and 5 years later it feels like the Eamon and the team are still supporting our marriage. My husband reached out to see if the team could set up a private dinner for our anniversary and we can’t believe just how above and beyond Eamon went. Eamon looked after everything! We had front of house parking a private dining spot set up with momentum’s printed from our wedding and the most special surprise was our wedding dinner menu re created. Eamon and the team we cannot thank you enough for literally being there from day 1 of our marriage and for giving us memories that we still talk about to this day.

Red Scooter hosted us for a trivia fundraising event and it was absolutely incredible! Eammon helped us through every step of the process, went above and beyond to provide circus themed options and the event went off with out a hitch. We got rave reviews about the wonderful space and the incredible helpful staff. Thank you all and we will absolutely be back!

Wow what a venue to have a party, absolutely fantastic. Hudson Institute recently had a Ball with the roaring 20’s theme which everyone danced their tail feather off. What made the night was the atmosphere, friendly staff, great selection of music, food, drinks, you name it! Red Scooter got it all spot on. This is not the first time Hudson has used Red Scooter for an event and again staff were terrific, so thank you! If you are thinking of having a party I defiantly recommend this venue.

Phenomenal! Went to a friend's wedding at Red Scooter recently and everything the venue exceeded all my expectations. I have a long list of dietary requirements and they handled it with such ease, never made me feel like a bother and catered for me so well. One of the first weddings I've attended where I've been fed equally to all other guests. Plus the venue is stunning and the staff and service were incredible. Honestly one of the best wedding's I've attended.
