Today a hen night is just as likely to be a hen weekend, and a vast array of activities are available to keep everyone happy; from craft evenings to dance lessons, to vintage cream teas and luxury spa days – there’s no excuse not to have fun!
So put a huge smile on the beautiful bride to be and her chicks with our top tips…
Send a badge invitation personalised with the date of the do, each guest’s name (good for larger parties where everyone doesn’t know each other) or simply HEN – then everyone can wear them on the day – a great ice breaker!
A lovely idea is to get everyone to bring their favorite (or funniest) photos of her and peg them up around the room.
The stories behind each one will surely come out throughout the night! Scatter bright confetti on the tables, pop fun paper straws and retro charms in the drinks and string bunting and colorful pom-poms from the walls.
Top it all off with a ‘hen party in process’ sign to make sure you’re not disturbed!
Fill hen do survival kit pouches with goodies to keep everyone in tiptop condition; sweets, plasters, paracetamol, mini bottles of booze and detox face masks – they’ll thank you for it later!
Arrange the pouches on a table before everyone arrives for extra wow factor.
Top it all off with a handmade bride to be necklace that she can wear with style and pride the whole weekend.
We love the idea of filling a photograph album with all the chicks’ childhood photos and memories of her – add to it throughout the day and gift it to her at the end, leaving a few blank pages for her to add in the fun of the hen do!
Or bring along a ‘fill me in’ poster and some colourful pens so everyone can write their message and memories on it throughout the weekend – it makes a wonderful keepsake.
Now, THAT’S how to throw a hen party. Enjoy!! Xxx
