Hi everyone,

Alrighty, here is the long awaited post of the vintage 50’s hens party that I told you all about. Now, I am so sorry this wasn’t on the Friday or Saturday, but it turns out, that my Easter weekend was a lot busier than I thought it would be. One thing I was busy with, was the new fashion photo shoot that we’ll be starting very soon. 🙂 I am really excited to bring it to you, as we have some new locations and outfits, and of course, our fantastic photographer has some great shots!

Anyway, about this post….
We held this hens party for a friend who’s getting married in a couple of months. We had a lot of fun setting it up in the morning, with bunting, vintage glasses, lemonade, jelly beans, lace, gold crepe paper, bunches of wildflowers, drapes of fabric, and homemade vases. We laid table cloths over all the tables, and placed doilies on each, with a vase of wildflowers, it looked so lovely! Have a look out for all of those items in the following pictures.

If you are interested, have a look at how I made the vases, it’s really simple, and I borrowed the idea off someone else who was decorating a wedding cheaply. All you do, is get some old glass jars, then you cover them with some nice paper, and tie it with some lace or ribbon. Whatever catches your fancy really.

Enjoy all the vintage outfits as well (we had to dress up in 1950’s style of dress)!

My good friend Ambley is wearing a lovely dress made by her amazing Mum, who is also making the bridesmaids dresses for this wedding I might add 🙂

This is the skirt folks, the one that I made with some help from Mum, I’m happy with how it turned out! 🙂 I am very inspired to start sewing again. It was actually rather simple, I think you girls should try your hand at some sewing, it’s very rewarding and satisfying wearing your own handiwork.

Lydia is a great organiser, so this was all right up her alley. I think we all did an amazing job combined, it was loads of fun, and I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time.

Everyone had to bring some nice cupcakes or a sweet thing. We all drank tea from some lovely floral teacups, and had a fabulous time!
