A hen party isn't I'm A Celebrity, you won't be facing harsh conditions and need Bear Grylls number on speed dial (although who wouldn't want Bear Grylls' number? Well, as long as he let's us pick the restaurant, we really don't fancy his cooking), however for a big weekend you might want a mini hen party survival kit.
Homemade hen party survival kits are a fun variation on the traditional party favour. It's also a chance for you to get creative! You can decorate each bag, add funny hen party nicknames and so much more. Go for brightly coloured paper bags or make something out of simple muslin, your hen party survival bags can be as simple or complicated as you want.
Top Tip - If some of the hens haven't met before, add a name tag to each bag until everyone has had time to properly mix and mingle.
