We had such fun hosting Gwenda’s Hen Party last Saturday!
When Gwenda’s best friend (and organiser-in-chief, Lowri) contacted us at The Candle Alchemist to see if we could help out with a special Hen Party for a group of 18 ladies, we were delighted to help!
A Vintage Tea-Time theme buffet & Alice-in-Wonderland-style drink bottles (complete with ‘Drink Me’ labels and straws!) went down a storm with the hens, who also brought their own Fizz to get the party started!
Once everyone had had their fill of tea-time goodies, we got creative with the candles! Anita, aka The Candle Alchemist, demonstrated how to make a beeswax candle by using a rolling technique, and then everyone had a go at making their own, with great success!
Next, it was time to design their own unique candle, using special candle-wax paints in blue, gold, red, green, pink, purple, yellow and orange to decorate a plain candle. Again, Anita gave some instruction on basic techniques, so that even those who felt ‘creatively challenged’ were confident enough to have a go and release their inner talent. The results were awesome!!
The hen’s thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and expressed their delight in finding such a unique and creative group activity.
Then it was time to get back on the coach and leave for their next activity – cocktail making (and no doubt tasting!) in Llandudno!
We wish Gwenda and Dion all the very best for their Wedding Day in October and much happiness for their future together!
