Our inspiration for this week's blog has come from some Hen Party Bags we keep seeing all over social media. Although we can't supply these ourselves, we thought it would make a great blog to show all of you how to make these yourself and what to include in them. You can tweak them accordingly and add/replace items that cater to your preferences but if you follow our recommendations, you will make the most fabulous Hen Party Bags. Also, if your the maid of honour, these bags will be perfect for you to give to your Bride and the rest of the Hen squad.
1. Personalised Brown Paper Bag
Although the bags are literally just to hold the contents in, personalising them with bows, glitter, ribbon or name tags, the Bride's name or hen party slogans will be a fun way of adding excitement and reiterating that you are on a hen do. You can buy small brown paper bags from ASDA stores and any leading craft/home stores.
Now you have sorted out your actual bags, you can now choose which contents you are going to fill the bags with. How exciting!! This is the stage where you can let your mind run wild with fun, exciting or daring items to fill the bags with. Below we have put together some must haves.. Remember, you can add/replace items with funnier, different or more preferred items.
2. Drinking Games
Inside your bag, find the perfect drinking game cards for your squad of Hen's and either buy or create them yourself. Drinking games are the perfect opportunity to start off your night by getting tipsy and having lots of fun.
No party bag is complete without some sweets to snack on through the night. Also, after eating and drinking all day your Hen's won't be able to thank you enough for supplying them with some mints. Also, we love the idea of these wedding puns 'mint to be' with the bride and groom to be's names on them.
4. Pant Game
After finding this game on Pinterest, we couldn't wait to share it with you all. Prior to the hen do, give all of the hen's one of these cards. All of the women have to go out and buy a pair of knickers that best describes themselves and then it's unto the bride to guess which pants belong to which hen. Get all of the ladies swap around with each other and put a different pair into their hen bag and let the Bride's guessing commence.
We are obsessed with these gold stick on tattoos! Instead of getting the bridal party to wear badges, get everyone to stick these tattoos on and add a bit of glamour to the evening.
You can't have a Hen Part Bag without some alcohol. These mini Prosecco bottles are the perfect size as well. We suggest to add a straw to them, tie them with some fancy ribbon and add a name tag/funny slogan to them. You can replace the prosecco with Gin, Wine or Vodka...
7. Hangover Kit
Complete your bag with a hangover kit, because don't pretend that your Hen's won't need one for the morning after. Fill these kits with headache tablets, something sweet, some plasters for the blisters caused from high heels and perhaps a bottle of water!
