A thank you poem

Posted by Lisa Shaw on Wednesday, July 4, 2012, In : Hen Party Poems 
Quite a few people are looking for "thank you for coming on my hen party" poems!!

After sending her a poem, one girl wrote back to me and said (and I swear I'm not making this up...)

"Ah wow, that is super. I'm so overwhelmed, you're a very clever lady!!! It's fantastic....Do you only do Hen Part...

A few people have asked me about good hen party games. I have some suggestions here - and also a link to a great website that is full of ideas of games for a hen do.

How about a Mr and Mrs quiz for the bride to be? Read my earlier blog post for some inspiration for questions.  

"Would you rather" is also quite amusing. I actually bought a box game of this quiz ages ago and it's billed as "The Game of diabolical dilemmas!" It's basically a set of ver...
