8 Steps To A Perfectly Pink Hen Do!

Pink Hen Do Balloons

Mix up Colours and Textures!

The focal point of this hen party is a stunning arrangement of pink balloons which have been styled around a whitewashed fireplace. We love this look and {good news!} we think that it will be super easy to recreate at your hen do venue.

Our top tip is to mix up different balloons to create a fun and modern look! Choose a selection of balloons in varying shades of pink and rose gold and then arrange them around a dining table, a doorway or even a staircase.

Keen to recreate Lenzo’s balloon arrangement? Then you are in luck! We have tracked down the UK suppliers of very similar balloons so you  get the look at your hen do {yay!}.

Pink Blooms & Bouquets

Be Clever With Flowers!

The Lenzo ladies styled this hen party in partnership with a professional florist and, unsurprisingly, the flowers are stunningly pretty. There are blooms bursting from vases, jam jars and even from a gorgeous floral chandelier.

We know that most hen parties won’t have the budget to recreate this look in its entirety BUT don’t worry! We have some nifty tricks to share with you so you can get the look on a budget.

  • If you are throwing a hen party at home then ask all the hens to bring a posey in a jam jar which can be used to decorate your venue. You can even make this into a fun game! Let the bride to be guess which hen bought which floral arrangement {a great ice breaker!} and then ask her choose her favourite blooms. Make sure that you have a prize for the winner!
  • If you are throwing a hen party in a rented cottage or apartment then buy a couple of bunches of flowers from the supermarket to decorate the venue {the cost of the flowers can be incleded in the hen party budget}. Check with the venue whether they have any vases and, if not, then bring some jam jars from home.
  • Whether your hen party is home or away, make sure that you use your bunches of flowers as decorations throughout the hen do. Move the blooms from room to room to make sure that they can always be enjoyed.
  • If you are booking a florist as your hen party activity then make sure you use your flower arrangements {whether they be hand tied bouquets, corsages, flower crowns , etc} as much as possible throughout the hen do.

Confetti Canon

A fun hen party photo!

Confetti is no longer just dried petals thrown at weddings, it is now one of the coolest hen party decorations around and comes in a huge variety of colours and materials {including the awesome pink foil confetti used by Lenzo!}. In particular, we are big fans of confetti canons! Confetti canons release a burst of colourful confetti and can be used to either surprise the bride or as a brilliant photo prop.

Check out Etsy for some super pretty confetti canons. 

 

Pink Hen Do Sashes

Classy & Fun Pink Hen Party Sashes!

Hen party accessories are a complete must-have in our opinion. They get all the hens in the party spirit and are a lovely memento for the bride to treasure. You don’t get more classic than a pink hen do sash!

The classic pink hen do sash has been seriously upgraded in the past few years from cheap and tacky to cool and fun {hard to believe but true!}. Over the last few years we have noticed lots of creative makers start to craft unique hen party sashes that we LOVE. The Australian producers at Lenzo have a gorgeous collection of pink hen do sashes but if you are looking to buy a similar sash in the UK then check out Hop Studio, Oh Squirrel, Le Petit Mariage or Fox Blosson Co.

Hen Party Manicure

A Fun Daytime Activity!

It is always difficult to choose a hen party activity that everyone will enjoy. Rather than trying to please everyone, try to pick an activity that the bride to be will love. If your bride to be loves all things feminine {and enjoys a pamper} then you can’t go wrong with a hen party manicure!

Depending on your budget you could book a professional to come and polish your nails to perfection. However if you have a limited budget then host your own manicure party & if you need inspiration then check out our step by step hen party manicure tutorial.

Hen Party Cocktail Making

A Fun Evening Activity!

Kickstart the party with hen party cocktail making {always a winner with hens!}. Whether your bride to be prefers a Mojito, a Cosmopolitan or an Aperol Spritz she will love learning how to make her favourite cocktail.

Hiring a professional is always fun, but if the budget doesn’t stretch then make them yourselves! We love how this hen party created a stylish cocktail bar at home complete with delicate glasses and fun garnishes.
