Hen Heaven – A review of the past 12 months
With Christmas only a few days away and New Year just over a week away, we thought it would be the perfect excuse to look back over the past year and celebrate what a great year 2016 has been for us all here at Hen Heaven. We’ve been super busy this year; from creating some incredible Hen Parties for you lovely lot, to running a competition for two lucky ladies to win a date with an Adonis hunk to the exciting new rebrand in November – it’s been busy, but oh so much fun! Check out our favourite highlights of 2016 – here’s to hoping that 2017 will be just as successful.
In February, we teamed up with the gorgeous folk at Adonis Cabaret and ran a competition to give two lucky ladies a date with an Adonis hunk. We ran a competition and received dozens and dozens of entries to win a date where they would be wined and dined by either Jack or George – all the applicants had to do was tell us their perfect date and whether they wanted to spend it with Jack or George. This was one of our most successful competitions around and we had a fab time reading all of your entries!
In March, we sourced some truly amazing suppliers up and down the UK to work with, who specialise in some incredible vintage hen party activities. We bought you activities such as hair and make-over experiences, where you’d be transformed into stunning starlets from the glamorous bygone era - think Victory curls and gorgeous swing dresses. We also added activities such as quaint vintage afternoon teas to enjoy with all of your favourite girls. Why not check out our available options?
National Bridesmaid Day
National Bridesmaid Day was a brilliant campaign that took place back in April, which focused on how to ask your best friends to be your bridesmaid. We celebrated National Bridesmaid Day by teaming up with Butlers in the Buff and conducting a search for bridesmaid of the year. This year’s winner of bridesmaid of the year went to the lovely Shannon, as nominated by her bestie Jolene!
In August we launched a new Glamping activity on our website for all those girls that want to get back to nature, but enjoy the luxury of their very own yurt, airstream or pod. You’ll get to enjoy all those luxury comforts such as mirrors, futons whilst some even feature hot tubs – the perfect way to relax and celebrate with all of your favourite girls.
November saw the launch of our fabulous rebrand, we updated our logo and website with a shiny new look. But our rebrand was so much more than just a new appearance, we wanted the focus of our brand to be about you, the customer and giving you plenty of choice. With that in mind, we created the new tagline of ‘Your Hen Party, Your Style’.
November also saw us publish our first interview video on The Hen Heaven blog. For our first video, we wanted something that was really going to stand out – with that in mind we interviewed the hugely talented make-up artist Jenna West, where she reveals a whole load of great hair and make-up advice for your big day.
Bake with a legend
More recently, we added an exciting new activity to our range on the hen website – Bake with a legend. This unique experience is the perfect option for those hens who just love to bake, and with this one, you’ll get to bake and receive expertise advice from a celebrity baker who was formerly a contestant on The Great British Bake Off! They’ll provide everyone with a demonstration and then it’s your go to bake! Of course, in true GBBO style, all your creations will be judged and the winner will be crowned Star Baker of the session!
