Recently myself and a few friends decided to organise a hen party for a friend of ours who is getting married this July. I was so excited at the thought of picking a theme, decorating and creating a menu so I couldn’t wait to get started!

We decided to to hold a drinks and canapes party and then go to a champagne brunch the following day in Al Qasr hotel in the Madinat, Jumeirah.

We didn’t have much time so first thing first, I went online and had a good look at pinterest to get some inspiration for the colour scheme for our drinks party. We settled on yellow, cream and gold.

We took a trip to the Party Centre in Al Garhoud to pick up a few decorations and balloons. This place is amazing with decorations for every occasion so we had a ball running around choosing props and decorations.

We picked up some yellow puff balls, cream and gold bunting, vanilla cream helium balloons, gold table confetti, and engagement ring charms.

We decided to keep the food simple, so we prepared a selection of canapes and finger food. We made Bruschetta, baked baby potatoes with creme fraiche and chives, smoked salmon and brown bread, hummous, brie and crackers, mixed salad,  and a caprese salad. They all went down a treat!

The night was a great success and I am already looking for the next event to organise! I thoroughly enjoyed browsing themes, shopping for props and preparing the canapes. I hope our friend enjoyed it as much as we did!
