Hen Party Head Gear

This depends on what look you are going for you can get L Plates/Horns or the formidable penis hen bopper.

Add a head bopper to any outfit to instantly signal that you are a hen party.

Check out this page where you can get hen party boppers from €1.50 per person!

Hen Party Invitations

What invitations you go for can depend on wether you are doing a theme or not . It also depends on wether you are doing an online invitation or an actual hard copy invitation. You can buy generic hen party invitations in any good joke shop or online.

With Facebook, Twitter, Viber, Whatsapp, Pinterest (and the rest), most people are taking the easy way and designing one on their computer and sending it via one of these social networking sites which is much more cost effective with the same personalization that is required.

If you have the time make them yourself make sure you put all of the information of the date, where you are staying, the RSVP date and the package price etc on it.

At this point I would advise you let them know what is the last date to pay the deposit to secure their place.
Check out our Pinterest page for invitation ideas.

If you are doing a theme, check out that theme page or contact us for more information

Personalised Bunting

I just love bunting, it is so easy to make and yet it is so very effective to really personalize any table, room or area.

Check out how to make personalized bunting below:

Apart from Material Bunting there are lots of cost effective ways to fill a room with beautiful personalized bunting without breaking the bank. You just need to get your creative hat on.

It is amazing what you can create with a little Coloured hard card, a hold puncher and a piece of string.

Check out some of our inspirations for bunting here

Drinks For The Hen’s Room

Great for rounding everyone up before the meal (make sure you add this into your budget before telling anyone the prices)

You may need plastic glasses as some hotels will charge you corkage if you didn’t buy the drink in the hotel.

Decorate The Dinner Table

Again if you do not wish to go with a theme or a fancy dress but you want everyone to appear to be party of one group. Diamante Transfers can be ironed onto t-shirts for the group to wear on the night out or indeed, just for the journey down to get you all in a part mood.

These Diamante Transfers are also great to personalize things for the hen herself. Iron “Bride to be” onto her PJ’s for the hen night for a nice finishing touch to what is sure to be a great night.

Personalised Menus

Finding Nice Ideas for a Hen Party can be hard Personalized dinner menus can be as simple as the hens name and the date at the top of the menu you could add a tag line if you felt creative.

You could do one large picture of the hen as the background or you could do many small pictures around the edge of the page. These can be made into scrolls with ribbon or just left as normal.

You can incorporate the general theme of the Hen Party to these if you are doing one, for example if you are doing a Nautical theme having the menus reflect this is a perfect way to pull a theme together.

Hen Party Magazine

If you have a hen that loves her magazines, what a surprise it would be for her to be on the front of one!

Check out this page for more information:

Remember The Day

At the end of the hen party, pick up the days newspaper, a copy of the dinner menu, a coaster from the bar, a souvenir from each thing you did that day.

Seal them all in a box and give it to the bride 1 year later, on her Hen Anniversary and reminisce about the day.

If you want to really go the extra mile make this Memory Box/Time Capsule match the theme of the Hen Party such as this Vintage Styled Memory Box:

Hen Party Photobooth

Photobooths all the rage now. They bring laughter and a great opportunity to get pics of the guests. Personalize these to the theme you are doing and you are onto a winner.

Photobooths are a fun way to get everyone mixing and great for the memories afterwards.

Check out Photobooth Ideas here:

 

Hen Party Fancy Dress

Fancy dress hen parties (eg. dress as a nurse) involves dressing up for the hen party night out only and it does not affect any other party of the event.

You do not theme the menus and invites around this.

Hen Party Badges

There are so many cute ideas for Hen Party badges – check out our Pinterest page below for inspiration. However our favorite Suppliers for Personalized Hen Party Badges have to be www.jokeshop.ie.

They have lots of predesigned badges for you to choose from or you can simply create your own.

The best part is that they only cost €1.50 each

Decorate The Hen’s Room

This is such a simple idea & yet a really nice surprise for the hen. It starts the day off on a great note.

Decorate the room prior to her arrival with balloons & banners – you could even cleverly place pictures of her around the room. Chocolates, sparkling wine & cookies are also good to munch on while getting ready (Check with the hotel that you are allowed)

You can personalise this as much as you want, adding personalised bunting, pictures of the hen etc.

If you are doing a theme keep this in mind (eg. if you are doing “pink ladies”, all pink balloons would be perfect)

Hen Party T-Shirts

If you are not going with a hen party theme or hen party fancy dress but wish to have uniformity amoung the group a Hen party t-shirt is a great idea.

It can also be worn for the journey down (before you get into fancy dress/night out gear) getting everyone into the hen party mood. This can be done with a picture & a tag line or just “Mary’s Hen Party”

Most hen party t-shirt companies are great at helping you design one that is special to the hen (Be sure you get people’s right sizes some “Larges” are no bigger than a 14)

Check out how to do this easy idea here

Cake For The Hen

You can go for a simple shop bought cake, plain iced Cupcakes, Novelty Cupcakes, Novelty cakes the choice is yours. Bear this in mind when booking the dinner, as you may get dinner cheaper.

Again if you are doing a theme it is a great way to carry it through the event ie: if you are doing a Nautical Theme do a Nautical themed Cake.

They all come in all shapes and sizes check out our PINTEREST page for some ideas.

Hen Book

Get a scrapbook or a photo album & fill it with pictures of the hen throughout her life.

A nice idea is to get everyone to send you an image of them and the bride and get them to sign it/write a note to the bride or send the note to you and you type it up before the hen night.

At the end, have a picture of the Bride and Groom to be with a note from him (aww).

Recipe for a Great Marriage

Get a scrapbook & either get everyone to bring along a handwritten recipe they like. Put them all in the book a great keepsake for the bride to be.

Hen Party Date Jar

All you need for this are wooden lollipop sticks and a sharpie!

Get everyone to write something different on each lollipop stick that the couple can do for date night each week. Place all the lillipop sticks in the jar.

Makes a great keepsake for the bride to be.

Kiss the Single Life GoodBye

At the start of the hen party gather all the guests together, ask everyone to apply their favourite lipstick shade and get them all to metaphorically “Kiss the Hen”!

Make sure everyone has quite a thick layer of lipstick and get them to kiss the piece of card. Then leave your card in a safe place to dry completely – Don’t let it smudge as it will ruin it and you will have to start all over again.

Once it is dry then pop it in a lovely frame and surprise the hen!

Hen Party Favours

The choices for these are endless.

You can go with chocolates, drinks, take home gifts, personalise them, work them with a theme you are running – I just love them, they ooze sophistication and attention to detail (once done right), done wrong and you are better off not doing it at all.

They all come in all shapes and sizes check out our PINTEREST page for some ideas.

Hen Party Chocolates

Everything is better with Chocolate including a hen party!

A few chocolates in each room, welcoming the guests to the hen party gives it a wow factor. You can do this in many ways you can just be really simple and place one Dairy Milk chocolate on a napkin with a note “Welcome to X Hen party” or you can do a chocolate favour box etc.

What you do depends entirely on your budget

Decorate The Dinner Table

If you are doing Hen Party Bags/Hen Party Survival Kit, you can include anything you like.

Here at Belles and Blazers we think any Hen Party Bag should definitely contain a few of the following:
• Plasters
• Water
• Painkillers
• Chewing gum
• Safety pins
• Small sewing kit
• Small deodorant
• Lip balm

Half of the appeal of a party bag is the way it is presented and what it is presented in. You can do it really well in a brown bag with a personalized label at the front, you can do really fancy boxes or you can go one step further and take one of these as inspiration

Diamante Transferables

Again if you do not wish to go with a theme or a fancy dress but you want everyone to appear to be party of one group. Diamante Transfers can be ironed onto t-shirts for the group to wear on the night out or indeed, just for the journey down to get you all in a part mood.

These Diamante Transfers are also great to personalize things for the hen herself. Iron “Bride to be” onto her PJ’s for the hen night for a nice finishing touch to what is sure to be a great night.

Playlist of the Hen’s Favourite Songs

Just add music!!!

If you are travelling to the hen party by car or by bus it is important you do not end up listening to the news or worse still, bad music on the way down.

Get the party started right from the moment you leave.

Create a playlist on your iPod (make sure you can link it to the speakers) or a CD of the hen’s favourite songs or generic hen party/girlie songs for the journey…..Bob’s your uncle instant party mood!

Personalised placemats

Get images of the bride to be, put them into a nice collage print and laminate it…voila personalized placemats.

If you are doing a theme this is an ideal opportunity to make it flow throughout the entire night such as if you are doing Christmas themed hen party having Christmas images/colours on the personalized placemats is a great way to tie it all together.

You could also order them online at various online stores such as: http://www.glossy.ie/personal-placemat/
