Well we just can not believe it is already October!! Where has this year gone? We have been having a great year at Crafts and Giggles! Holding so many craft parties all over the UK, meeting such wonderfully creative and talented people, and Katie (chief of Crafts and Giggles) even found the time to get married! We are not ready to reflect on 2015 just yet though as we still have many craft hen parties ahead, and of course our Christmas Craft parties, (which we are so excited to host!).
In between planning craft parties for the next three months of the year we have been inundated with enquires for 2016 hen parties! We can not believe just how organised you hens are!! July in particular is looking to be a very popular month for a good old craft hen party with us! We absolutely love all of your enquires, and of course bookings please keep them coming! We do suggest however that if you are interested in having a craft hen party with us to book as soon as you can, we really do not want to leave anybody disappointed! To secure a booking we require a small deposit.

Halloween has to be our favourite time of the year, as it allows us to relive our childhood memories with lots of creative fun! As the leaves on the trees turn crisp and orange our crafty minds turn to spooky crafty Halloween fun! Here at Crafts and Giggles we cater for all sorts of Craft Parties and Events, and Halloween is no exception! Every year the bright orange pumpkins appear and the wonderful bold and bright fabrics!
Last year we enjoyed running a handful of Halloween Craft Parties for corporate events and personal parties! Our workshop providers made it extra spooky playing the part as a crafty witch, with a pointy hat and broom at the ready!

We headed to Swindon last Saturday to a beautiful Cricket Pavilion to run a bespoke craft hen party workshop. We were very excited when one of the bridesmaids asked us to put the bespoke craft party together for a bride to be who loves all things craft!
We were asked to teach the crafty hens how to make pretty rosette style name badges in a vintage style. We provided the group with endless supplies of fabrics, feathers, pretty embellishment and of course brooch clips! Laura the bride to be absolutely loved the craft workshop! She got stuck in using pretty floral fabrics and lace which matched her dress perfectly!
Laura's hen party was so beautiful. The moment we entered the room we knew the craft hen party was going to be great fun! The room was decorated with Pom poms, bunting, pretend buttons made from paper plates, and a beautiful mint and pink floral table runner. Disney songs were playing in the background and the sun was shining through the windows! It was such a fun and happy occasion so much so myself (Katie) and Anissa didn't want to leave!
We were very very impressed with all of the name badges and hair pieces created during the session and greatfull to Holly and Elanie for inviting us to be apart of such a special hen party. We wish Laura a very happy wedding day next week x
Planning a hen party can be a stressful task! It can bring about sleepless nights and tears! Trying to please the bride to be and her loved ones is a tricky balancing act! We think that the bride to be is this most important part of any hen party, if she is not happy then this will rub off and create an unenjoyble experience for everyone involved!
Here are our top five tips when planing a hen party:
Think about what the bride to be would like to do. If she likes the outdoors for example use this as your focus point. You could even ask her...there is no harm in asking a few questions to begin putting the puzzle together.
Start to plan early! There is nothing worse than leaving the planning to the last minute! Places will get booked up as will family and friends!
Set a budget from the start and be strict with it! A spread sheet will always be your best friend!
Location location location! By choosing a location that has all of the things you would like to do will help with your planning and organisation of the celebrations!
Don't plan too many activities to do! Feeling rushed and regimented is not enjoyable. Everyone leads busy lives and people like to have down time too! It's best to savour each element of a hen party.
Lastly don't get stressed! It's is supposed to be fun! If you are having fun everyone else will!
Hello everyone we hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the glorious sunshine! We can not believe it is already June!! We have been so busy running craft parties that our little blog has been slightly neglected! We are still here and enjoying every second.
Last week we headed to Poole College in Dorset to run a Bunting Making Class for a group of eager students. Our craft workshops are not just for parties, we are also often asked to run craft workshops at schools and colleges across the UK!
The group really got stuck in and were very creative! We provided many beautiful fabrics and embellishments for the group to choose from on the day, and two of our talented workshop providers provided tuition and inspiration along the way! The students took great care and time making their bunting, we were extremely impressed with the end results. The feedback from the craft workshop:
"I just wanted to thank you all so much for a wonderful session you provided on Wednesday for us. The girls were so pleased with their end results, and hope Amberlee coped with their demands.
We would love to use your fab company again, and will look forward to booking you again."
