Hen's Party Decorating Tips: Metallic

Hen's Party Decorating Tips: Metallic

Decorating a room for a Hen’s Party can be a daunting task. So many questions, what do I need to buy for the Hen’s Party? How far do I need to go decorating the space? Do I need to buy specific Hen’s Party supplies or can I use any decorations? Should I stick to a theme? Bride’s all have different expectations so once you have sorted out what the bride is expecting and a theme or colour scheme it can be really easy.

Metallic decorating is a trend that looks great in any space and what female doesn’t love a bit of gold, silver or rose gold. Plus it is easily adapted to suit most themes and can be done on a budget (but still looks classy, yay!) below are some of our tips for decorating with metallic.

Tip 1: Pick a space & colour scheme/theme first

Work out what space you are using first, that will depict how many decorations you need to organise. If it is in a public area check if you are allowed any decorations. Get together with the bridesmaids and decide if you have a theme or a rough colour scheme to stick with.

Tip 2: Choose the statement Hen’s Party decorations first

Start with the Hen’s Party decorations that will be the focal point of the space and work around those. Metallic balloons with words such as “love” or “bride to be” are a good option, they also make a great backdrop for photos. As a secondary focus there is the Hen’s Party themed glitter banners such as “She Said Yes” and a funny but bit more risqué Hen’s Party banner “Same Penis Forever” which always gets a laugh. “Team Bride” balloons look great with anything to really get everyone into the bachelorette spirit.

Tip 3: Get crafty with DIY

Once you have your statement party decorations sorted it can be easy and low cost to create some other metallic and glitter decorations to compliment these. We’ve listed some of our favourites, made easily with glitter and metallic paint. You can find the DIY instructions for all of these on our Pinterest board here.
