Throwing a hen party is all fun and games…in today’s blog post I wanted to share with you these 12 stunning ideas I came across on the web that are sure to help the maid of honour during the party planning process.
It’s the last time the bride gets to go all out, so its important to make a big deal about the hen and the overall event! Making a cute invite will be a fun and useful way to get your message across about the event, it will provide all the necessary information for the hen and the girls attending.
Signage is always fun, we all do this, we count down the days till Christmas or to our next holiday, so take this opportunity to do a to countdown to the Bride’s to be Big Day! It will create extra excitement and if you decide to opt for a chalk board it will be a lovely keepsake for the Bride to use it at home.
If your hen isn’t one for a boozy get-together you could have a sleepover and posh breakfast. Lots of movies and games by night, which all girls love followed by waking up to yummy treats.
We all love a bit of bling. Diamonds and treats might be the perfect combo. It is the little details that can really add to the hen party atmosphere. If you’re looking for a suitable treat for the occasion then why not try this: Transform a donut into a piece of ring candy by popping a pretty diamond shaped cut out into it as shown below.
Champagne on its own will win over a lot of hearts especially those in the mood to party! I LOVE the idea of sprucing them up and making them that little more girly and personal, you can make them all different to fit the needs of each guest attending, and you can pay more attention to the hen after all it is about her! Whether you adorn them with bows, ribbons, streamers or cute tags with each girl’s name on it and pretty straws everyone will be very happy with this treat!
Hen Party Games
If you’re looking to make the hen party that bit more personal, there are lots of games you can play from ‘Guess What the Groom Answered’, to ‘Bridal Bucket List’
A memory book is a sure way to bring on the waterworks. Get all the girls to gather lots of old photos and compile a gorgeous memory book full of your friend’s lifelong adventures. She will be blown away by the thoughtfulness of it all and it is something she will treasure forever. Add little stories, captions and memories to make it even more personal!
A wishing tree is a lovely focal point for a hen party at home and is the perfect place to pop wishes, advice or even funny stories about your friend over the years! Guaranteed to get a few giggles.
If you’re looking for a lovely gift idea for your hen, get all the girls to sign a bottle of champers as a keepsake, to celebrate with on their first anniversary, or to pop open on the morning of her wedding.
Hen parties can come with their fair share of antics so it could be a fun idea to provide survival kits for all the ladies. Fill them with treats like sweets, mints, glowsticks or a fun prop to bring an element of fun to the night. And don’t forget the obligatory painkillers and any other hangover cures your friends are partial to! We love the heart shaped sunglasses – perfect for popping on the morning after to hide those tired eyes!
Disposable cameras are fun idea, as I am sure there will be several opportunities to click away and record the night’s happenings! Alternatively if you can get your hands on a Polaroid camera so you can view and share the prints instantaneously that’s even better!
