You’ve said yes and now it’s time to celebrate! Grab your maid of honour and get the girls ‘round to have the perfect girlie night. Be inspired by our décor, favour and of course, cocktail options. Check out this lot.
Everybody loves a good (strong) cocktail and adding that extra bit of fun will go down a treat with your guests. Keep it simple with some candyfloss to top of that perfect drink and serve in a rose gold rimmed cocktail glass. Carrie, is that you?
Make your own manicure
What’s a girlie night of celebrations without a little mani/ pedi session? It may bring you back to your teenage years but sipping on some drinks and painting your nails is the best way to chat all things weddings with your squad. Make up some mason jars with some polish and a file and you’re all set.
The best part of any party – the food! Treat the girls to some delicious goodies and lay out all of your favourite snack foods for your guests. Think a waffle bar with bowls of topping options, cake pops, strawberry shortcake and rice krispies treats.
With your own wedding on the way, décor will be an important aspect to showing your personality on the big day, so your bridal shower is the perfect test run to put your stamp on the look of the room, and it doesn’t have to be super expensive. Create centre pieces with your favourite flowers in a mini vase, work in some fairy lights around the treat station and top off with balloon. If you’re feeling some DIY, do a take on the Instagram photo frame by creating a floral frame for that extra touch of pre- wedding prettiness.
Gaming with the gals
Games are essential to keep the good vibes going for nights in with the girls. Have your maid of honour come up with some games that will give everyone a tester of what’s to come for the hen party.
