How to throw a Halloween hen party

Ideas on how to throw a spooky hen party.


Halloween hen party

31st October is one of the biggest nights out of the year, make it your biggest night ever and throw a Halloween hen party.

A Halloween themed hen party is perfect for the bride-to-be who likes something a little bit different. Pimp your hen party with disturbing decoration, eerie eats and chilling costumes!

Outfit

Dress up as a bride, a corpse bride that is. Source a wedding dress from a charity shop and let your spectacular Halloween hair and make up do the talking.

Venue

Everyone loves a good Halloween night out so check what’s on in your area. In the North of Ireland, Jungle NI offer an annual event that consists of a ‘Woodland trial’ with the opportunity to add on up to five scare attraction passes. In the Republic of Ireland, Murder on the Menu provide private murder mystery hen party packages that can include a hotel stay, nightclub entry and even a cheeky art class!

Make up

Halloween make-up has really come into its own the past few years and make-up artists up and down the country are offering hair raising alternatives to their otherwise flawless artistry. The face painting of the adult world, make it a hen party activity and get all the girls together to have their make up done before hitting the town.

Sweet treats

One of the best things about Halloween is the sweet treats and with so many to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice. Have a scary sweet table complete with creepy cupcakes and terrifying toffee apples.

Games

Halloween season is awash with games but make sure you go bobbing for apples before your make-up is on! Play a hen party version of trick or treating and gather a list of pre-set items such as tie, kiss on the cheek, high five from strangers throughout the night or have a pumpkin carving competition!

Decoration

Perfect for the non-girly hen, decorate your hen party location with Halloween memorabilia. Include pumpkins, ghoulish straws, cobwebs and much more. We are loving this chic pastel pink and black bunting!
