If you’re planning a hen party for the ultimate glam gal, the girlie bride who loves all things cute ,girlie and pink then a bar hen party theme is one to add to the hen party theme list.
There are so many ways that this theme could work, such as the bride to be as Barbie herself- blonde wig and all! While her hens wear matching outfits of white t-shirts with pink writing of ‘Barbie’s Girls’, with pink shorts or skirts, white pop socks and plimsoles. Or, if your group of girls are up for it, why not a fancy dress Barbie? Everyone could be a different type of Barbie, such as Ballerina Barbie, Medical Barbie, Ski Barbie etc. Allow the girls imaginations to flow and see their creativity on the night and relive your barbie play dates.
Where could you go to look for your perfect Ken? Only Cork City. Barbie is all about the glam so why not have your activity as a relaxing day at the spa. Why not book into ‘The Kingsley’ spa and make use of their terrific thermal suites along with their amazing spa packages.
Following this, why not get your make up done professionally? You could book into any one of the amazing make-up places in Cork city, Brown Thomas or even look into getting a free-lance make-up artist to your hotel/apartments. Your perfect Barbie make-up (over the top lashes essential!) will be done for you and you need not worry about doing it yourself.
Where to go then once you hit the city? Well ‘Soho’ of course! This vibrant cocktail bar is exactly what every Barbie girl will enjoy. Whether it’s the main bar, the restaurant, the VIP area or the rooftop you choose to go to/book, you will be served like the princesses you are. Following on from this is ‘The Bowery’, with even more cocktails and pumping tunes, you will have the space to boogie in your Barbie World.
Throughout the night why not play a hen party game whereby once the song ‘Barbie Girl’ comes on that every girl must freeze in their Barbie pose for 30 seconds, the last person to pose will have to down a shot. The bridal party can use this time to be in charge of when the song is played and of course, to take pictures of the girls in their random poses in each location you visit.
As a surprise for the bride, why not create a Barbie box. Made from cardboard and pink paper, the Bride-to-be can stand in the box as if she were a real Barbie and strike a pose. As an ideal photo prop, it will be sure to have everyone giggling and even trying to fit more than one person in it for pictures! Maybe leave this at home for the night out though, it will be annoying and also might stop you from getting into places!
