Retro Hens Party - Styled Shoot

Are you planning a hens party and looking for a unique and stylish theme? Look no further than a Retro Hens Party! This nostalgic theme is perfect for brides-to-be who love all things vintage and want to celebrate in a fun and fashionable way.

The Venue

Choosing the right venue is key to creating the perfect retro atmosphere. Look for a location that has a vintage vibe, such as an old ballroom, a retro diner, or even a classic car showroom. Make sure the venue can accommodate your group size and has enough space for activities and decorations.


The Decorations

When it comes to decorations, think bright colors, bold patterns, and retro accents. Hang vintage vinyl records on the walls, set up a photo booth with retro props, and scatter colorful confetti on the tables. Don't forget to include a retro-inspired centerpiece, such as a vintage typewriter or an old-fashioned rotary phone.


The Outfits

No Retro Hens Party is complete without fabulous outfits! Encourage your guests to embrace the theme and dress in their best retro attire. Think polka dots, poodle skirts, cat-eye glasses, and victory rolls. You can even provide a rack of vintage clothing for guests to choose from and dress up for the occasion.


The Activities

Keep the party going with a variety of retro-inspired activities. Consider hiring a dance instructor to teach you and your guests some classic 50s and 60s dance moves. Have a pin-up photoshoot where everyone can channel their inner Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn. And of course, don't forget to play some retro games like pin the tail on the donkey or a hula hoop contest.


The Food and Drinks

When it comes to food and drinks, think retro classics with a modern twist. Serve up mini burgers, milkshakes, and fries in cute vintage-style containers. Offer a variety of retro-inspired cocktails like martinis, mojitos, and champagne punch. And don't forget to have a dessert table filled with nostalgic treats like mini cupcakes, jelly slices, and ice cream sundaes.


The Favors

Send your guests home with a little piece of the retro party. Create personalized retro-themed favors like mini vintage perfume bottles, custom-designed compact mirrors, or vintage-inspired keychains. You can also put together retro-themed gift bags with small items like retro candy, colorful hair accessories, and mini hand fans.


A Retro Hens Party is a fantastic way to celebrate the bride-to-be and create lasting memories with friends. So put on your dancing shoes, embrace the retro vibes, and get ready for a hens party like no other!
