A hen party, or bachelorette party as it is sometimes known, is a pre-wedding tradition for brides everywhere. It’s your last night before you tie the knot, and you want to celebrate in style with your best girlfriends. So how can you make sure you make it a night to remember? You could put all the work into a buffet bar yourself – but where’s the fun in that? Instead, you could give a professional hen party caterer a call, and save the whole night for you and your friends!
So what sort of a spread would best suit hen parties?
Set up a brunch bar with a variety of breakfast and brunch items. Offer options like mini quiches, breakfast sandwiches, yoghurt parfaits, fresh fruit, pastries, and a selection of juices and hot beverages. The great thing about all of these foods is that they are very filling, and they suit any time of day, too!
Create a charming afternoon tea experience with a selection of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and a variety of teas. Consider adding a champagne or prosecco option for a touch of elegance. Afternoon tea is the perfect sophisticated lead up to the dream wedding.
Serve a selection of cocktails and mocktails that reflect the bride’s favourite flavours. Offer a range of appetisers, such as sliders, bruschetta, mini quiches, or gourmet cheese and charcuterie boards. Cocktails and sides are fun and girly and a great way to say goodbye to the single life!
Set up a dessert bar with cupcakes, macarons, mini tarts, chocolate-dipped fruits, a chocolate fountain, and a selection of candy or a make-your-own sundae bar. Indulgent desserts are a great choice for the women’s side of the wedding and are a lovely treat before the big day.
Professional catering for hen parties
Of course, you don’t need to do any of these, if you don’t feel like it – you may prefer a professional hen party caterer to take over the work, instead. Hen party catering is common because bridesmaids and maid-of-honours (if you have one) don’t want to stress out over food before the wedding. It’s much simpler and far more enjoyable to let the experts handle it, instead. Take a look at our menu to get a sneak peek at what we can offer you, or fill out our contact form to find out more.
