Hope & Glorious Hen Party

<3 Jen
My wee sister is getting married in less than two weeks! Last weekend we celebrated her hen do. It was quite simply amazing! The day was organised by Hope and Glorious Vintage and they could not have done a better job!
Here I am post makeover - total transformation. Enjoying the delicious afternoon tea.

 They provided a really fun prop box so we could all play dress up

 Each hen had an individual makeover - make up and hair

 Gorgeous Linda playing with the props!

Kirsty chilling with a glass of Fizz post makeover - the wide grin says it all! Everyone was made to feel so special :)

Champagne and strawberries on arrival and
each hen got a little package with a vintage brooch and mirror

Mother of the bride really enjoyed the day! I didn't even get pics of the crafts and games provided - we each made a fascinator and played fun games.

 The wonderful ladies from Hairaid Shelter hard at work - they are so talented

Hair and make up had true staying power - this was hours later after dinner at Clarice House!

During the day we also had a wonderful afternoon tea served on vintage crockery. This post is already rather photo heavy so I might save the food for another write up ;)
A very special day I will never forget!

I've been trying to make my own dress patterns in the last few weeks and these dresses have really inspired me to make a similar pattern with a fitted vest and loose midi length skirt.
