My bridesmaids featured above did an amazing job at organising the best hen weekend ever!
As well as a cocktail making class featuring the now famous magpie girl cocktail ;) great gatsby themed soiree they also threw me a Mad Hatters tea party, with bunting, playing cards scattered all over the table, pinwheels and vintage china that my cousin had collected over time. But the array of food on offer was the main attraction & actually left me speechless. Here was what was on offer:

Salted caramel macaroons
Mini triple choc cookies
carrot cake whoopie pies
