Classy Hens Party Ideas for Tasmania

You know what I’m talking about. Penis Straws. Plastic Tiaras. L Plates & Feather Boas. A Half drunk, sweaty stripper thrusting his hips to Genuine’s Pony… Often when you hear the words “Hens Party” it’s these images that come to mind.

Recently, I have been ‘honoured’ with the task of being a Maid of Honour for a close friend of mine. Now, I’ve put honoured in quotation marks because even though I love her, it does not feel like much of an honour at the moment. I can’t deny that it’s a big task. This is meant to be a joyous event and currently feels like the most stressful occasion ever. Whether you’re the Bride-to-be, the Maid of Honour, or even just a guest, a Hens party is usually one of the most organised events you will ever attend.

The bride has given me one rule. No Clichés. What kind of activities does that leave me?
