Just wanted to share with you some photos from the last two hen parties we hosted. They were two very different days but with 3 very similar themes - vintage, cakes and craft!

Pretty Vintage Hens
This party was a perfect example of the ultimate vintage experience that we can provide! Vintage hair and makeup makeovers created by the very talented Sharron from Tah Dah, pretty polkadot dresses, red lipstick galore, scrumptious and indulgent afternoon tea courtesy of ‘Alices Vintage Pantry’ and an array of our hand picked vintage inspired fabrics, ribbons, buttons, beads and sequins!

We hosted the party at Sale United Services Club arranged by the hen and as lovely as it already was we set to work when we arrived there transforming the room with bunting, vintage embroidered linen, flowers in bud vases, birdcages and a vintage singer sewing machine. Alice laid up the afternoon tea table with her gorgeous china cakes stands, teacups, saucers, tea plates and cutlery ready for the spread! Sharron set up a lovely table with her vintage mirror, curling tongues and make up brushes and I filled my lace covered table with baskets full of fabrics, crafty jars, pink powdered galvanised jugs full of scissors, and pretty buckets with sewing essentials such as stitch unpickers, needles and threads.  With a final application of red lippy for me and the tea pots filled to the brim by Alice we were ready to greet the hen and her hens!

The ladies looked like they had a great time, chatting, laughing and enjoying the vintage tunes. The fizz was flowing, the sandwiches and cakes were well and truly tucked into. They looked fab with their flicks of eyeliner, victory rolls and curly do’s and my sewing starlets each made fabulous fabric corsages adorned with buttons, beads and pearls. They finished the corsages off with a brooch/hair clip back that meant they could either wear it in their hair or pinned to their dresses.  

Below are a few pics... professional pics to follow.

Vintage Garden Party
The setting for this hen party was idyllic.  It was a lovely hot and sunny day ideal for a garden party.  The garden was a beautiful haven of gorgeous flowers, pure green grass and a pretty gazebo with lots of vintage memorabilia and decorations.  Some of the girls had no previous sewing experience but all of them managed to make their own corsages using a choice of pretty vintage inspired fabrics and buttons. It was such a hot day we had to bring the food out to the table in stages so the cream cakes didn’t spoil. There was plenty of jugs pink lemonade to keep everyone cool.  It was a lovely relaxed and fun party with lots of chat, cake and fizz! They had even organised a vintage bingo machine with prizes and a Mr & Mrs challenge.
