Canapés are not only tasty but also an effective strategy for maintaining the endurance this evening is sure to demand. Depending on your time and finances you may like to prepare your own or organise catering. Either way, your cocktail bartender come waiter can certainly help to ensure the Hen is preparing for a night of endurance by ‘feeding her’ those tasty little delights if need be. Your guests will be doing a lot of dancing so make sure to have hors d’oeuvres that are ready grab and eat in between dance breaks. Some ideas are
- Tomato and Bocconcini skewers
- Sushi rolls
- Bruschetta on French baguette
- Melon and prosciutto
- Mini sandwiches – try cucumber and watercress
Whether you have hired an apartment or decorated your own place, make the most of the burlesque inspired theme, glam up the Hen’s space and add some chic flair. Some ideas to get you started are to drape vintage looking globe string lights around mirrors to give it that “burlesque backstage”. Also try replacing your regular light bulbs for red bulbs and watch the room go to va-va-voom instantly. And for a touch of glamour hang up gold string curtains over doorways for grand burlesque entrances!
