Hen Party Antics

Hey Lovely People, 
Here is my first lifestyle/life post, I hope you like it.
So on the 5th of August, I was invited to the Hen Party of my close friend, Alice. I have known her for about  6 years, when we met through my oldest friend (I’ve known her for 17 years now).

The words hen party nowadays seem to get linked to crazy drunken nights out, L plates and everything else (not that there’s anything wrong with that). However, that kind of thing would not go with Alice’s personality, so the chief bridesmaid (who was Alice’s sister) set up a Hen Party Tea Party, complete with bone china cups like these:

We had one wedding game during the party, which was to make a wedding dress out of toilet roll. I was chief hander out of sticky tape, as I have no creative bones in my body and we had a student dress designer on our team (which is not cheating at all). Here are the final dresses (my team was the dress on the left in the first picture):

There was amazing food, quiches, bagels followed by the most amazing cakes that looked liked this:

Much fun was had including a bit of hat wearing at the end when most people had left. Here was my given hat (it actually belonged to Alice’s Mummy):

Excuse the face, we had drunk a lot of tea haha

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and my recount of the Hen Party. The Wedding post should be up later today.
Till Next Time,


  1. This looks like such a lovely hen party, I love the tea cups, and those toilet paper dresses are amazing :P x

    1. It was a good afternoon :) The tea cups I believe were family heirlooms :) xx

  2. My. Hen party was an high tea with cocktails... Loved it!!! It was soooo me and I had a great time. :) x

  3. Ahh looks so lovely :). There's so much on offer these days and I don't really wanna just do a round of the places in town and get drunk, I'd rather do something a little different and maybe have a few drinks along the way. I dunno, we'll have to see what I find to do :).

    Gem xx
