The perfect Hen’s Party: Flower Crown Making, High Tea and a Bride to Be surprise!

We had the honour of organising this gorgeous styled shoot in Brisbane to create some hen’s party inspo, with some amazing wedding vendor friends. But for this shoot we took on the role of Maid of Honour and got busy planning the perfect Hen’s party! After much brainstorming and planning, we decided on a fun and festive day that included flower crown making, a beautiful hight tea and of course, exchanging keepsake gift hampers between the Bride to Be and her bridesmaids.

We started the day surrounded with fresh blooms selected by Zoe from Bumble and Bloom. She selected a variety of fresh flowers and greenery, as well as all the supplies we would need to create our own flower crowns. The Bridesmaids and Bride to Be had so much fun getting creative and crafty (and to be honest, we jumped in too!). Zoe led the workshop in a relaxed and fun manner and we all ended up with beautiful and unique flower crowns that we wore with pride for the rest of the day.

Next, the girls were spoiled with a fancy high tea with sweets created by Macarons By Monika. Dainty and delicous treats including macarons and cake pops were enjoyed by all! Delicious high tea platters were also enjoyed with scones, clotted cream and a selection of pastries all arranged by Platter to Plate. During a Hen’s party, this provides the perfect way to relax and catch up with each other while indulging in some delicious treats. Now, it wouldn’t be a Hen’s Party without a bit of cheeky fun. The girls had John, their own personal cocktail waiter for the day to serve the drinks and sweets during the afternoon too.

After the high tea, it was time to surprise the Bride to Be. The Bridesmaids were gifting a Bride to Be hamper from The Bridal Box Co. filled with goodies including a custom sash, “Mrs” mug, chocolates and champagne. The Bride to Be felt the love and was excited to recieve her gifts. After today her keepsake gift box becomes a treasure chest for her to store all her favourite memories and mementos from her wedding planning journey. But the celebrations didn’t stop there, the Bride to Be had arranged beautiful keepsake hampers for her besties too! A Bridesmaid Box and Maid of Honour hamper were exchanged with her bride tribe.

Overall, it was a fantastic day filled with laughter, love and plenty of fun! We had the pleasure of enjoying an amazing mock Hen’s party and working with some of our favourite local wedding vendors to create amazing Hen’s Party inspo!

Inspo: Bridesmaid Proposal

Your besties have been by your side through thick and thin; to celebrate your wins and bring you ice cream when you’re down. When you want to ask them to stand by your side on your special day, you want to find a way to let them know they are special and just how much they mean to you!

Sometimes your closest friends live on the other side of the world and the question will have to be asked over the phone or Skype. But if you’re lucky enough to have your tribe close by – then why not spoil them with a Bridesmaid proposal picnic!

Pop-up picnics are definitely trending at the moment, which means there’s probably a service near you that lets you host a gorgeous picnic – without all the hassle! Just like Glamping (which we also love!) all the cooking, packing, set-up and cleaning is done for you. If you’re more organised and DIY, here’s a little inspo we put together with a few of our very talented Gold Coast vendors.

As you grow up, you truly realise how important having your best friends in your life is. Even though you may not see them every day or even week, you love knowing that when you are together again, it’s like it was yesterday that you last spent time together!

We also (of course) recommend our gorgeous, “I can’t say ‘I do’ without You” gift boxes to accompany you on your Bridesmaid Proposal Picnic!
