We had such fun hosting Gwenda’s Hen Party last Saturday! When Gwenda’s best friend (and organiser-in-chief, Lowri) contacted us at The Candle Alchemist to see if we could help out with a special Hen Party for a group of 18 ladies, we were delighted to help!

A Vintage Tea-Time theme buffet & Alice-in-Wonderland-style drink bottles (complete with ‘Drink Me’ labels and straws!) went down a storm with the hens, who also brought their own Fizz to get the party started!

Once everyone had had their fill of tea-time goodies, we got creative with the candles!  Anita, aka The Candle Alchemist, demonstrated how to make a beeswax candle by using a rolling technique, and then everyone had a go at making their own, with great success!

Next, it was time to design their own unique candle, using special candle-wax paints in blue, gold, red, green, pink, purple, yellow and orange to decorate a plain candle.  Again, Anita gave some instruction on basic techniques, so that even those who felt ‘creatively challenged’  were confident enough to have a go and release their inner talent.  The results were awesome!!

The hen’s thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and expressed their delight in finding such a unique and creative group activity.

Then it was time to get back on the coach and leave for their next activity – cocktail making (and no doubt tasting!) in Llandudno!

We wish Gwenda and Dion all the very best for their Wedding Day in October and much happiness for their future together!

Contact us today to book your own special Hen Party here on Anglesey! Contact Us

Gwenda says she will light her candle on her wedding day!
