Wine Bridal Shower Ideas

Bubbly Bar

Whether you are hosting the party at home or in the hotel room, a bubbly bar is a must. With a range of delicious champagnes to choose from along with fun mixers and toppings including sorbet, fruit and candyfloss, the girls will be drinking the night away in style. Why not include chic favours and tags to make your bubbly really shine bright.

Pimp Your Cupcake

Every lady has a soft spot for devilish sweet treats so why not add a Pimp Your Cupcake station to your hen party? Your guests will be able to create their very own cupcake design using a range of icing and frosting. Invest in tasty toppings such as rainbow sprinkles, chocolate chips, mixed nuts and sugar pearls. Everything tastes so much better when it’s handmade.

Bohemian Theme

If you’re stuck for a unique and stylish hen party concept, a bohemian theme is sure to impress. Perfect for the summertime, a bohemian theme gives you and your guests the chance to dress in floral maxi skirts and high-waisted trousers along with gladiator sandals and round shaped sunglasses. There will be plenty of photo opportunities so be sure to take plenty of selfies!

Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea

Sometimes, however, bridal shower ideas take inspiration from your favourite Disney movie with an Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea. With fine china, freshly brewed tea and coffee as well as scrumptious pastries, the celebrations will certainly look the part. Be sure to include chic décor as seen in the movie itself such as playing cards hanging from the ceiling and oversized pink flamingos.

Alcohol Infused Treats

When it comes to alcoholic treats, the options are endless. From Gin and Tonic cupcakes to Bailey’s cheesecake, Vodka gummy bears to Mojito ice cream, these fun hen party treats will be a huge crowd pleaser. Champagne and Prosecco ice popsicles are a huge hit right now so be sure to grab them while you can.

Brunch Bridal Shower Ideas


Why not change the rules when it comes to bridal shower ideas and start the celebrations earlier rather than later? The brunch should definitely include a coffee bar, waffle station, mini pancake stacks and cereal and milk popsicles. Or perhaps, if your girls are thirsty or seeking something a little stronger, a Pimp Your Prosecco station will satisfy their needs.

Selfie Station

No night out is complete without a selfie so why not take it to the next level with a tailor made selfie station. With fun props and a shimmery gold hallow frame, an endless amount of snaps will be taken on the day. Be sure to post them on social media for everyone to envy over.

Arts and Crafts Bridal Shower Ideas

Arts and Crafts

Bring out the inner DIY hen in all your lovely ladies with arts and crafts with a hen do twist. This can be carried out at home or in an actual craft venue. From fascinator making, flower workshops and jewellery making to live art painting, there is something to suit all groups.

Line Up Board

To help ensure the celebrations go according to plan and all the ladies are aware of the fun day ahead, a line up board is sure to impress. A striking and snazzy board stating the itinerary for the day including ‘Cocktails at 2pm’ ‘Party Games at 5pm’ and ‘Hit the Town at 7pm’. This just screams style.

Wine Tasting

For the ladies that enjoy the finer things in life, a wine tasting class is both unusual and classy. This can be carried out by the chief bridesmaid herself or hosted in a certified winery. The girls will taste different wines as they are filled with all-important knowledge including how to taste wine and how to read a label.
