Inspiration: Hepburn Hen

A lovely lady came to me with an Audrey Hepburn theme for a hen party wanting inspiration on what she could arrange for it. I thought a Breakfast at Tiffany's spin on the theme would make a for a fun, sophisticated Hen do... 

Clockwise from top left:
-An elegant invite should be sent out as soon as the event was arranged to ensure everyone is able to attend
-Posters of Audrey could be put up around the room to create a gentile atmosphere
-A fun event doesn't have to be one fuelled by alcohol and a night on the town, the pampering is all part of the fun and either professional of DIY manicures and pedicures (in red shades, of course) can help start the night off nicely.
-Professional makeup artists can be a great addition to apply retro makeup to guests and add a touch of glamour to the proceedings
-(left and below) Hens should be advised to wear a LBD and the blingiest tiara they can find, along with long black gloves (think Breakfast at Tiffany's chic)
-A ladylike 'afternoon tea' is an excellent choice for this theme and can include sandwiches, cupcakes, tea and pink champagne for a sophisticated spread
-If you and your fellow Hens are feeling adventurous, why not have a go at the art of Burlesque with an at home class?
-If a Hen wouldn't be a Hen for you without a trip into town, why not go somewhere less rowdy than the typical Hen venues and have a gossip with your Martinis a la Sex and the City?
-Finally, when it comes to a gift for the bride to be from her Hens, in keeping with the theme, clubbing together to purchase a little something from Tiffany's is guaranteed to put a smile on your very own Miss Hepburn's face!
