How we do hen parties

What better way to spend a day with the bride-to-be than creating something crafty for the wedding whilst enjoying sparkling wine, cocktails, yummy food or scrummy cakes? Our most popular craft classes for hen parties include: Fascinator Making (we can even dye your feathers to match your outfit), Origami Lily Fairy Lights (with papers to match the wedding colour scheme), Flower Crowns and Paper Flower Making (giant paper roses and peonies are blooms of choice). We come to you, bringing bunting, food, sparkling wine or cocktails, gift bags for the hens, and all the materials to make something you can all be proud of.

Pick a class where you work together on something for the big day (like our Origami Lily Fairy Lights), or choose one where you make something for yourselves. In our Fascinator Making class the bride and bridesmaids can make unique combs or head pieces, and the hens stunning fascinators. We offer a short-and-sweet class that’s an hour-long and can slot in between other hen party plans, or longer options that are perfect if you want to make it central to the party. Our crafty hen parties are something special. You won’t find an L plate or phallic hairband in sight, but you will enjoy a unique shared experience to remember for years to come.

Want to hold the class in a pub or tea room? If you’re holding the class in a pub or tea room, use code HEN at checkout to take 15% off the price as we won’t be able to offer food and drinks. And if you’re struggling to find a venue to host the class, just get in touch and we’ll do our best to help you.
