What a Polestars Teacher Does For Her Hen Night?Posted by Alec on November 20 2013.
Most Polestars staff meet hundreds of hen parties every year, with this kind of experience, we wanted to know what our teachers would do for their big night out. We put the call out, and Abi, one of our dance teachers told us her story…
What a Polestars Teacher Does For Her Hen Night?
For my hen night (2 weeks ago) my Mum and I made shabby chic bunting, baked homemade sausage rolls and nibbles, and hosted a cocktail masterclass at home. Our tutor is a professional flair barman who taught us how to make (and sample!) mojito, pina colada, cosmopolitan and white russian. They were lovely! All the ladies wore cocktail dresses, and for once I had all my friends and closest dancers in the same place at the same time – rare in my business as an entertainer! And even those who weren’t drinking had a fun time, as we were able to make non-alcoholic mocktails, and of course had some booze-free pink bubbly on hand to keep the drinks flowing.
My friends surprised me with home made raspberry iced cupcakes, classy balloons and some beautiful gifts, which was a lovely surprise.
Us youngsters then left the parents to it, and took taxis to town. We played chilli shot roulette (10 red coloured shots, 1 of which is a chilli flavour) before heading to a House music bar where my friends had decorated a booth as another surprise for me. We had Babycham on arrival with nibbles at the table, and partied the night away! All the girls got on so well and can’t wait to repeat it all on my wedding day in a fortnight. The whole night made me realise that I don’t need to worry that there won’t be an atmosphere, or that my guests won’t get on – they all have one thing in common, that they want me to be happy. So now I can chill out and enjoy the run up to the biggest day of my life. Wish me luck!
My hen party organisation tip: do it YOUR way. It’s YOUR night and you’re only going to do it once (hopefully) so don’t worry that people might not enjoy it, just do what will make you happy. The wedding itself is where you get to be all politically correct and attentive…so make sure you let your hair down at the hen do. Party on!
