If you’re planning to host a brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner for the hen party, then the table setup will play a huge role in setting the scene and getting the ‘look’ you’d like. We’ll cover what to put on the table below but we’re here to remind you – don’t forget the seats!
Having matching or coordinated seating at your table can make for a really visually stunning hen party decor arrangement. You could go for colour matching, like in the photo example. Or you could source chairs from your collection and from some of the other ladies that follow the same theme. Maybe they’re all wooden, antique, benches or retro 60s style chairs.
However, we know it can be difficult to source enough matching or coordinated chairs for a hen party of more than 6-10 ladies. But that doesn’t mean this decor idea isn’t for you. Keep it simple and within your budget by buying some matching cushions or chair covers to bring eveyrthing together without having to go out and hire 30 fancy pink seats.

Glamping has become one of the most popular hen party accommodation options in recent years for good reason!

Your group can focus on quality time together, bubbly under the stars and the most unique setting for your hen party games.
Glamping is a brilliant opportunity to incorporate your hen party decorations ideas. Decorate your bell tent, cabin, yurt or campfire area with:
