Since first launching back in 1999 (because they said two thousand zero zero, party over…), LNOF has grown and developed in ways in which we could have only dreamed of. Eighteen years ago, our MD, Matt, was just a hoody-wearing, cider-swilling student with a bad hair do (he occasionally wears shirts now), giving advice and inspiration for stag dos from his university bedroom.
It’s safe to say we’ve come a long way in the past 18 years, not just because we’ve progressed from a small office above Greggs, using Windows 98, to seriously swanky offices on Newcastle’s Quayside. We’re now proud to have around 40 employees, over 25,000 successful stag and hen weekends under our belt, and we’re even the biggest hen and stag accessories provider in the UK.
Kicking off the birthday celebrations, we surrounded ourselves with 18th birthday balloons and delved into several steaming hot pizzas. Then, to top it all off, we had some delicious chocolate birthday cake (in the LNOF logo, of course), with thick black icing and chocolate buttercream running through the middle. Mmm. We can’t wait to see what the next 18 years have in store, because if they’re anything like the last 18, they’ll be pretty special. Happy birthday LNOF!
