Five Easy Steps to throw a hens party

Jun 24, 2008
Step One on How to Throw a Bridal Shower: Create a Guest List

Secretly borrow the telephone book of the bride to be and call all the names you feel you are familiar with as in she mentions often amongst her closest friends or as many names as you can accommodate in your house and in your budget.

Don't forget, not everyone that you plan to invite will be able to come. Studies have shown, that apart from close friends, co-workers and family members, only 30 per cent friends will show up. After all they have all played the bridal shower games many times before and there is monetary outlay involved (getting there and drinks). Everyone has so many social commitments already that assume less than half of the people you invite to actually show up.

Step 2 on How to Throw a Bridal Shower: The Bridal Registry

When sending out the invites, always place a note as to where the couple has registered for gifts so that's they don't get three toasters and four waffle makers! And don't forget to include a RSVP card or call and make sure that your guest count is accurate

Step 3 on How to Throw a Bridal Shower: Plan the Venue

Depending on the length of the guest list and the budget, decide if you want to host an intimate, cozy affair at hoe or have a more sophisticated and formal event at a restaurant or club house.

Step 4 on How to Throw a Bridal Shower: Deciding on Food

Now you have the guest list and a venue for your party make plans for the party food, cooking it yourself or asking everyone to bring in a dish are booth good options that can save you money. If you choose the last option, always try to coordinate what each person is bringing so that you do not end up with four desserts and no salad.

Step 5: Whip up Games

A great way to get those hard to find games it to "google it" thats right grab some thing interesting from the thousands of websites that can give you the party edge. A tried and true favorite is the old scrap booking game where guest make a scrap book page for the bride and its put together and handed to the bride on the night.
