10 fun things to do for your Hens party

Your big day is approaching and you want to celebrate with one last hurrah with the girls. But because every bride-to-be is different, one hens party does not suit all.

While backyard parties with all the quirky hens attire is still a popular go-to if you are on a bit of a budget, but there are plenty more options out there if you want to get a bit adventurous.

Here are some fun things you can do for your hens party.

Cosmos and chats

You can go the pre-mix cocktail bucket and blender at home, or splurge a bit and venture out to a venue near you.

Or you could go with a company like Liquid Infusion, who specialise in hen’s parties and send their most dashing young barmen in for the occasion.

The best part about the latter option, is there is no clean-up and you can spend the evening in one spot or use your cocktail event as a prequel to other adventures later in the night.

Bake up a storm
