*First of all, Jess, if you are reading this, avert your eyes!
In just 7 weeks, I am hosting the hen do for Jess, my best friend, ahead of her end of August wedding. After the incredible hen do she planned for me, along with my other bridesmaids Laura and my sister, I’m feeling the pressure a little bit and also super excited.
The location is set (and shall remain a secret,) accommodation booked and a variety of activities lined up. Now all that remains to plan are the obligatory hen games every hen should be subjected to. I know they’re cliched and cheesy, but they’re also a great way for a group of ladies who don’t necessarily know each other to break the ice and possibly find out more than they ever wanted to know about each other.
I remember one such game at my hen do where each lady was given a banana, a piece of string and a balloon. (You can see where this is going…) The banana’s were suspended by the string around each participants waist and the object of the game was for them to get themselves and their balloon from the one side of the room to the other using only their banana – hands were tied behind their backs. Cue much laughter, admiration over other competitors ‘bananas’ and a whole lot of thrusting hilarity. I should add this all took place thankfully in the privacy of the rented house we stayed in!
I can’t think of a better place then here to find some new ideas for hen party games to break the ice with – from your own hen party, or perhaps one you organised or attended. I’d be so grateful if you could leave me a comment with some suggestions of games you and the hen have enjoyed over the years and so I can steal them come July!
Thanks in advance readers – you’re all superstars
