Benefit Pretty Parties
Every girl loves a makeover and what better way to spend your last outing as a single girl than with your nearest and dearest at a Benefit Pretty Party. The world’s ‘friskiest’ makeup brand with a candy store appeal has several packages to choose from. Our favourite is the ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ package where your evening will be filled with pampering and giggles. For two hours you and the girls will enjoy brow shaping, lash tinting and have your makeup done by the professional Benebabes.

Hens Treasure Hunt
A hens party should be about having some fun and games with the girls. For an interactive day, embark upon a scavenger hunt and enjoy some healthy competition amongst your friends. Each team will be given a list of clues that will lead you to different locations. With challenges like who can take the best photo of two team members kissing a man in uniform, items to scavenge, questions to answer and gorgeous guys to interview and photograph, you will be in for a day of good, cheeky fun that every age will enjoy (even your mother-in-law). At the end of the day you will all meet up at a designated bar to compare photos, check answers, sip champagne, and choose a winner. Packages includes a hostess, treasure hunt kit, chocolates for bribery and corruption, great prizes and champagne.
