'Miss R's Hen Do' part 1 - setting the scene ...

Apologies for our gap in posts these last few weeks, Miss R's big day is fast approaching - 1 week this Saturday!   We are busy getting all of our bijoux finds together ready to transform the barn where the wedding party will be held into a magical setting for the celebrations.    

So as the bride to be's sister and only bridesmaid it was my mission to make sure Miss R's hen do on Saturday June 19th was a fabulous day she would always treasure, even if the weather was not as kind as I had hoped for!  With a lot of planning, secret phone calls and emails between myself and all the other hens we managed to keep the days proceedings top secret from the bride to be until her special day.

Miss R loves a picnic and so I came up with the idea of using the gorgeous old band stand in our local and much loved Queens Park as our venue for the day.  A loose mad hatter's tea party theme was announced to the 15 guests and with a lot of help from the amazing Mr R to be we managed to create a proper picnic feast for our very special girl.  Enjoy the photos below!
