Becca & her Happy Hens

Out of my mates the next person to taking the Miss - Mrs transformation is Becca! Woop!

We had her Hen Party a few weekends ago. It was held at her house & suited her down to a tee, hats off to Helena for sorting it & all the fellow Hens for their wonderful contributions!

A few of us arrived the night before & so started the big day with yummy pancakes (thanks to Anna) before we pushed Becca off to buy some "important last minute things" while we transformed her dining room into a bunting & pompom palace.

Everyone had been asked to bring food for an afternoon tea. We were pretty much drowning in cakes (not that anyone complained!) & lots of yummy savory snacks too. Beth's cupcakes above were AMAZING!

After we'd welcomed Becca back & eaten our weight in sweet stuff it was time to split into two, half of us were learning how to crochet, the rest were learning how to make bracelets before we all swapped over.  Some girls turned into crafting demons though & were still going strong on the crochet, all be it a bit tipsy, at 11pm! Hardcore!

In between crochet & more crochet we enjoyed a curry from Becca's favourite curryhouse, it was so welcome after all those cakes! Anna made some blimmin strong cocktails (note - don't ask someone who doesn't drink to make cocktails!), I got hooked on making pompoms & we all took part in a quiz about Becca. Once we managed to prise the crochet hooks out of Cess & Emhen's hands it was time to make wedding dresses out of old clothes (like you do!). Originally this was supposed to take 15min, but half hour later everyone was really getting into it & 45min later we ended up with these masterpieces........

We'd originally planned to go out & party the night away but by the time we'd had the catwalk show it was way past midnight so we carried on nattering away in the lounge before people started nodding off one by one.

I'm loving all these hen parties & the way they're all so different to match each bride-to-be. Who's next?! Woop!
