Across the Easter long weekend this year I got to spend 5 nights with a bunch of awesome chicks that I am lucky enough to call my friends. Our good friend Carrie is getting married later this year so we jetted off to the sunny Gold Coast for a weekend to celebrate her as a ‘hen’. It was the best weekend away with plenty of cocktails, laughs and dancing. Sometimes there is nothing better than getting away with the girls and letting your hair down.
Inspired by our get-away and the weekend as a whole, I have put together this post to inspire your next girly gathering! All of these events are so incredibly well styled and make me want to drop all of my cash on floral installations and gold wire furniture! Of course some of these get-togethers are incredibly OTT, but it might just inspire you to get a bit more creative for your next party or hen’s weekend!
Moroccan Garden Gathering
Ohhh this is SO up my alley. Everything about this backyard ‘Moroccan-inspired’ hens party screams casual, luxe celebration! This event would be so simple to recreate in your own backyard. Grab a few girlfriends, your favourite cushions, rugs, throw in an incredible nibbles platter and some flowers and you’re set! I love this!
Glamorous girls night
Grab your dancing shoes and don’t shy away from the glitter, this gorgeously styled ‘disco-inspired’ birthday party by Party With Lenzo looks like so much fun! I can’t get enough of those balloons and that pink cocktail tower – could it be any more girly? I think not. This colour palette is so what I’m in to. Pink is always a good idea.
Not so ‘Baby’, Baby Shower
If anyone knows styling it’s Rebecca Judd. I’m so in awe of her and her business ventures (Jaggard athletic wear, her gorgeous Adairs line and lifestyle blog Rebecca Judd Loves, just to name a few), all the while juggling parenthood to four kids. I can only dream of one day having, what Bec’s event stylists have called a ‘Non-Baby Shower’, as glamorous as this in the future. The Style Co are behind this unbelievable event at Bec’s incredible home. I love the twist they’ve taken on making the event non-gender specific and keeping with a monochromatic theme, so chic. And what an easy theme to recreate – even down to the adorable donuts and stunning cake, everything is styled to perfection.
Luxe Bridal Shower
When food and florals go hand in hand! If you’re on the hunt for something a little less traditional for a girl’s gathering why not scope out a moody, warehouse-style location for a touch of added luxe. I love the styling of this event in what feels almost vintage for a modern bridal shower where the fabulous grazing platters, delicious drinks and florals are stars of the show. Oh, and of course, how about the incredible fashion?!
Pour Some Sugar On Me
Dessert tables and candy buffets are all the rage at the moment, particularly for weddings. Why not replicate this incredible sweets station at your next party or soiree? Donuts made into styling elements on a simple shelving unit, throw in some florals and a little creativity and you’re on to a winner!
Lavishly Romantic Dinner Party
Is there anything more romantic than a night of wine, lavish cheese and beautiful crushed linen under muted gold lighting? I don’t think so! The styling of this space by Feted Events via Nouba Blog is incredible and that grazing table looks to die for! I love the use of light linen fabrics for a bit of a disheveled table-cloth, and the pale pink orchards used as a table centre piece. So feminine, so romantic! OMG!
