In the run-up to the big day, there’s nothing more exciting than getting all the girls together to celebrate your last days of singledom. In recent years, hen parties have become almost as beautiful as the big day itself. Here, Bubblegum Balloons (creators of party perfect décor) share their top tips for making your hen do POP!
Add personality to your venue
Whether your hen party’s at a rented cottage or city apartment, restaurant, bar or friend’s house, decorating your venue with bold, statement balloons adds a sense of F-U-N to proceedings. These big, bright and bold balloons (yes, there is a flamingo in the mix!) will brighten up corners for an eye-catching backdrop. Bunch them easily together to create different displays around the venue.
More is more
How many times does a girl get to have a hen party? Hopefully only once, so go all out and decorate‘till your hen heart’s content! Gorgeous balloon garlands are great for large spaces and can be easily created (simply inflate and attach each balloon together using the ties at each end). Drape across tables, high across ceilings and around seats for a sophisticated look that says the hen party has arrived!
Grab the confetti
Not just for the big day itself, pink confetti is so pretty to sprinkle on your dinner/drinks table – and will be a reminder of your upcoming vows. And at the end of the night, get your girlies to practice their confetti throwing for a fun, photo-perfect few minutes. Selfies at the ready!
Balloons as flowers
Perfect if you’re travelling to or walking between venues, mini balloon wands add a magical feel to proceedings. Not only are they a lovely hen party addition (as each of your girl gang can hold their very own bespoke one), but collectively they look all kinds of pretty! A perfect, unique and fun replacement for table flowers. Just pop them together in a jam jar for a striking centrepiece.
Instagram-ready bridal party
Is your bridal party Instagram-ready? They will be with their very own pretty personalised confetti balloon! Add your wedding hashtag to document your ‘do’ or add each of your bridal party’s names. Tie them onto chairs for a modern take on the traditional seating plan or display them around your venue, to make all of your ‘maids feel a very special part of your big day.
