It’s hen party season and we can guarantee that you’ve probably got at least one hen do in your diary over the next few months – perhaps even your own!

With lots of pink!

With lots of pink!

But whilst we love the girls getting together to celebrate, one thing we’re not such big fans of are the slightly naff decorations that are stereotypically associated with hen parties.

So put down those head boppers and those, er, ‘interesting’ inflatables and make your hen party POP for all the right reasons with stylish balloon decorations. Here’s seven ways to style your ‘do’ with beautiful balloons from Bubblegum Balloons…

Share the fun vibe with your hen party tribe

Balloons with cheeky phrases (such as ‘last fling before the ring’, ‘goodbye miss hello mrs’ and ‘bride tribe’), add a cute tongue-in-cheek feel to hen parties of all shapes and sizes - without making your Mum or Nan blush! Style in groups around your chosen venue, or pop a bunch on your dining table to add some fun to your chic celebrations.

Here comes the bride-to-be

Make sure everyone knows who the bride-to-be is – not with a tacky tiara or the usual sash, with a statement balloon! Opt for head-turning (for all the right reasons) options such as a wedding ring, or pretty – yet large – quirky balloons, like flamingos. Tie around the hen’s seat or around her wrist to make her feel extra-special.

Pretty seating

Don’t just do a seating plan for your big day, get the girls gathered round for your hen party celebrations too. Instead of place settings, tie a bespoke balloon for each of your special guests on their chair. It’ll not only show them to their seats but have them sitting pretty for the duration too!

Make a feature of the table

Whether you’re out for dinner or organising an afternoon tea at home, balloons look beautiful displayed around the table. Place smaller wand size balloons and place in the middle of the table as a sophisticated replacement for flowers, or use large helium balloons to attract attention to your delicious hen party fare.

Gorgeous garlands

Who doesn’t love a garland? Drape pretty balloon garlands around your hen party space for Pinterest-worthy pictures. Adorn across the room, sprawl across seats or dress tables with balloon garlands to wow your hens.

Beautiful bridal backdrop

Move over photo booth props, the balloon backdrop is here! Create a fun background for your hen do photos with helium balloons. Use colourful balloons and quirky additions (like the statement ring or flamingo) to get the girls snapping away and savouring your stylish hen do on their camera roll.

Photo finish

Send out your hen party in swoon-worthy Instagram style by having a balloon release (if you can bear to let them go, of course!). Ensure each of your guests has a balloon, then head outside to send out your party in style – cameras at the ready! Tying a wish for the bride to the balloon could even be one of the party games.
