They are also getting more and more expensive.  And as much as we all want to throw a lovely jubbly hen party for our best friend, sometimes the spending has to stop.

Will Your Bride LOVE These Balloons?

The likelihood is you won’t even think about the hen party decorations and accessories until the last minute.  After all, you will have enough on your plate. Booking accommodation, finding activities, emailing the guest list. Does anyone else feel like the the to-do list will never end?

If we’re being totally honest with you, we love all the hen party ‘stuff’. The bunting, the bride to be sash, the badges, the hen party bags because we happen to think it’s all in the detail. We think those extra bits and bobs make hen parties really special. It goes without saying you know your bride to be better than anyone else. You will know whether she will want decorations and accessories. She may not.  But if she does, keep reading.

The thing is, sometimes you have got to stick to a budget.  That being said, we think you can have it both ways.  You heard right!  We think you can make your hen party venue look amazing without having to remortgage your home.

4 Reasons We LOVE These Hen Party Balloons!

Lucky for you, we spotted this awesome DIY hen party balloon tutorial over on Instagram.  A DIY tutorial, we might add, that does not break the bank. And is definitely Pinterest-worthy.  So why do we love this hen party balloon tutorial so much?  There are 4 reasons we think this DIY tutorial can help you stay within budget and make your hen party as pretty as can be.  Here goes:

  1. They Have A Big Impact: Bunches of bright balloons make a big impact. They add colour and fill a lot of space! Choose a colour scheme your bride to be will love. She may hate pink hen parties so make sure you consider this.
  2. Money Saver: Balloons tend to be much cheaper than bunting or honeycombs. You’ll get the same impact for less pennies.
  3. You Personalise Them For Your Bride: You can make your hen party really personal to your bride to be by writing thoughtful messages on each balloon.
  4. So Easy To Personalise: It’s a really easy tutorial. You don’t need to be a master seamstress or super crafty to do it. Just practise your handwriting before you start! Try to come up with a unique design for each balloon! Add some love hearts, smiley faces, musical notes, engagement rings designs onto some of the balloons. Use your imagination here!

This tutorial was created by our new American friend, Kelly for her amazing crafty blog called StudioDIY. If you want to get distracted for a decent amount of time, we recommend taking a look at her blog – it’s pretty incredible.  Kelly decided to create this tutorial for her blog after her bridesmaids came up with the idea for her bridal shower.

In fact, Kelly’s bridesmaids set up a DIY Balloon Bar.  A what now? A DIY Balloon Bar of course.  Firstly they asked the bride’s friends to write a special note on their very own balloon for her to read.  They then deflated all the balloons after her bridal shower and kept hold of them until her wedding day. On the morning of her big day, her ‘maids inflated the balloons again.  This meant she could re-read everyone’s sweet well wishes as she got ready for her wedding.

What a lovely way to feel surrounded by your friends and family on your big day!  To find out more about this DIY tutorial and how to create your own Balloon Bar, head over to Studio DIY now.
