With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend we were lucky enough to be invited to host some Mother’s Day themed crafts at a Shopping centre on Saturday. The children got their creative hats on and painted a pretty heart themed tea light for mum as a Mother’s Day gift. It was a free event for all of those who took part, put on by Martlets Shopping Centre. It was a great family affair, even many of the parents ended up taking part (who can’t resist glitter!).
One of the reasons we love craft SO much is it brings families and friends together! We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to get creative! If you have an upcoming event and looking for something creative and fun to entertain people with, our crafty fun would be perfect! Get in touch if we can be of any help!
Hello everyone we hope you are all well and enjoying 2017 so far! We have been quiet on here lately as we have been swamped with craft party enquires and bookings (not that we are complaining!) We can not believe we are heading into March next week!
If you didn't already know we offer fun and creative Craft Parties Nationwide! We have been for over 5 years now! Our most popular craft party choice are our creative parties for hen party groups! They seem to grow in popularity year on year! We think this is because they add something different and fun to any hen party! Our Craft Hen Parties offer something for everyone from Flower Crown Making to Nipple Tassel Fun, you don't even have to have any craft experience to get involved! Our happy crafters always say that our crafty fun is a great icebreaker and helps to get the party started! Here is what one hen party group said about their Crafts and Giggles experience this month on our Facebook Page:
"We had a fantastic session in Warwickshire with Nicky making a quilt on my sister's hen do. The finished quilt arrived so quickly and it looks fantastic. Would highly recommend Crafts and Giggles."
If you are looking for a hen party activity with a difference look no further! Get in touch today for further details!
On Tuesday we were invited to a primary school in Bournemouth to talk to some of the students about how we set up Crafts and Giggles, and why. It was a great morning, and we hope we inspired some of the children to one day set up their own business in the future. One of the student’s questions was “What is a hen party?” As a 10 year old we don’t think we would have known what a hen party was either! This has made us look a little further into the term “hen party” and what it really means…
The term hen/bachelorette party came after the “bachelor party”, which is historically a dinner given by the groom to his friends shortly before his wedding. A bachelorette's party is simply a party, given in honour of the bride-to-be a time of fun with her friends and family.
Prior to its use as a term for a pre wedding party "hen party" was used in the United States as a general term for an all-female get together usually held at the hostesses home. The practice of giving a party to honour the bride-to-be goes back for centuries, though the newer term may have begun during the revolution of the 1960s, and it was uncommon. Now hen parties are so popular and it is a big industry in the UK. It is said that well over 200,000 hen parties will take place in the UK across the year!
Our craft hen parties are growing in popularity every year. When we attend hen parties we love to hear about all of the activities they have ahead of them. Having enjoyed my own hen party weekend I know just how special it is, spending quality and fun time with close ones is priceless. We hope that the term “Hen Party” continues to grow year on year!
