How to Organize a Hens Party and Some Items to Help You
Putting together a basic hens party is not difficult, provided you and your friends have some common interests when it comes to partying. It all boils down to having a smart itinerary ahead of time and all the right materials prepared. The first thing you need to do, then, is to get together with a few other members of the group and go into discussion about what events or places you need to go to and what things your bachelorette may want to do.
There are two basic options when it comes to food and drink: you go out or you get something catered. It would be easier to select the latter option if you do not want to have to worry about transportation and other outside variables—and if you are going to be planning some mischief with a stripper. Otherwise, you may arrange for the group to go have dinner at the bachelorette’s favourite restaurant. Be sure to iron this out first of all, because getting a great meal is key to any hens party.
No matter where the main meal is going to be held, drinks are typically served in a private setting during hens parties. For that, you can jazz up the cocktails by using LED-lit glasses. You can use a Flashing Champagne Glass for your bubbly, for instance, to provide a more festive atmosphere. Be sure to stock at least 1 buffer bottle for each type of drink you are serving and get a lot of ice ahead of time.
Now when it comes to the decoration aspect of the party, you can get out an Essential Party Kit to festoon the area with creative yellow tape reminiscent of the tape law enforcement authorities use for hazard zones or crime scenes. The kit also contains some “Caution” cones that you can use to set the stage for a wild night, or perhaps to tie in with a stripper if your hired dancer has been arranged to come in with a police uniform (a popular choice).
You can also provide some tools for all attendees to have fun, of course. For instance, an Essential Hens Night Kit should pack just about everything you need for a fantastic time with the girls. This compact, easily-carried tin has confetti tubes, a badge for the bride, handcuffs, and other items often associated with bachelorette parties.
If you want something a little more interesting for the bride to have fun with at a hens party, you can pack some tools for her such as a Bachelorette Sash and a nice little Bun Pincher. The latter is particularly popular with the girls and comes in a gorgeous pink, white and black colour that you just know means mischief when you see it. Items like these are guaranteed to be a hit with the bride-to-be. Even if no buns are actually pinched, they still make for interesting novelty items that might even be called into play later on, during the couple’s honeymoon.
