I recently just had my hen night to celebrate my upcoming nuptials with my girls. Now I am not a person who tends to enjoy hen parties, so I had requested something nice and classy – just dinner and drinks with those closest to me. Unlike some brides, I was quite involved in the organisation of it (bit of a control freak I am) and wanted to add just a little personal touch to the whole evening. So that meant having goodie bags and lot’s and lot’s of decorations!
Ebay is really a one stop shop for this kind of thing and they certainly did not let me down. Starting with the goodie bags! Black and pink was the theme and I was able to get my hands on personalised paper party bags which had my photo on the front and a message! To fill the bags, we added little trinkets like necklaces and bracelets, with some mini cosmetics, tissues and a customised card for each person. It took me an age to write 18 cards to all my friends, but I wanted to take the time to show them how much I appreciated their friendship and I mentioned a story or too!
No party is complete without balloons! We had such trouble trying to pick the balloons we wanted from the huge selection on ebay and we eventually settled on a mixture of round and star shaped balloons to which we add some pink ribbon and placed along the dinner table. The perfect centre piece if you ask me!
If you are having a party or any occasion, I highly recommend checking ebay for all your party essentials. It’s so reasonable and with a little planning you can find everything you need!
