Vintage and Retro Hen Parties

Vintage and Retro hen parties are just fabulous! They are an excellent excuse to get all dressed up and have lots of fun, and there's no better way to send the bride off into married life.

I can put together the perfect hen party to suit the bride-to-be. From cupcake baking classes, vintage afternoon tea parties and picnics, to a 1950's pin-up photo shoot to roller skating and cocktail making activities, get in touch and let's get this hen party started!

Examples of Hen parties packages I can offer:

Get Creative!

You can start your day off at a cupcake decorating class, learning how to colour and pipe the butter cream and create your own fantastic cupcakes with sprinkles and edible treats, this could be teamed with a creative craft class in a range of activities such as knitting, jewellery making or creating your own vintage accessories that can be worn to the forthcoming wedding. Alongside all this, afternoon tea can be provided and I can organise a professional photo shoot to capture you all at work.

Fancy something a bit more energetic?

How about getting a group of you together and enjoying a ultra retro rollerskating disco, we can arrange all this for you and they can be done at most venues so we can bring them to you - again we can arrange a photo shoot to catch you in action - or not as they case may sometimes be!

These are just a few examples of what I can arrange for you.

Contact me today for more ideas and information, I can work with you to provide the perfect hen party!

Dessert Buffets

Coming Soon...

Candy buffets are an interesting talking point at any event. They are fantastic for birthday parties, weddings or christenings, and both adult and children adore them. 

Take the adults back to their childhood with Lemon Sherbets, Coconut Rolls or Drumstick Lollies and Refreshers.

There are lots of alternatives to candy buffets if you wish to have something that little bit different, for example, a variety of different flavoured popcorn with boxes , a selection of your favorite cakes, chocolates in all shapes, flavours and sizes or even cheese and biscuits can be used. The buffets can be styled and colour matched to suit your event.

I will provide everything that you need to have the perfect dessert buffet. Get in touch for a free consultation and we can work towards creating the talking point for your event.

Below are photographs of the Candy Buffet I did for my own wedding:

My plans for Polka Dots and Pearls

My adventure first started when I got engaged and began planning my wedding. I decided on a fifties style wedding, and I went from there. 

I have a Diploma in Successful Interior Design and a City and Guilds Certificate in Home Interior Design, I enjoy organising parties and small gatherings for family and friends and I am organised and creative, so when I began planning my wedding I realised that this was something I would love to do on a more permanent basis. It enables me to take everything I enjoy doing, mix it in with my love for all things retro and voila, my own Event Planning and Design Company.

Polka Dots and Pearls will offer a variety of services for retro and vintage inspired events. These will range from rental of dessert buffets, photo booths and accessories to photo shoots to planning and styling weddings, hen parties and birthday parties.

Keep your eyes on this blog, this is the start of my polka dot adventure!
