Edinburgh Bonham Hotel fascinator making hen party

Last weekend we had the pleasure of running a fascinator making workshop for Fi’s hen party in the Bonham Hotel in Edinburgh.  This luxurious, boutique hotel is the perfect location for a sophisticated bunch of ladies to enjoy fizz, good food…and of course learn to make fascinators! Fi’s bridesmaid Kara had contacted us looking for a craft based activity for the hen party and we agreed that a fascinator making class would be perfect for the occasion.

The girls were all very enthusiastic and came up with some fantastic designs. Interestingly, each and every design made by the ladies was very different and unique, meaning that they have no need to worry about turning up on a night out, or indeed at Fi’s wedding, wearing the same fascinator!  One of the hen’s had brought along a brooch which had belonged to her grandmother to incorporate into the design which is a lovely idea and an ideal way to personalise your design.


Despite the bottles of fizz and excitement, there were moments of the afternoon that were silent when the girls were concentrating so much on their designs! As so often happens, those who had arrived stating that they could not sew and were not creative amazed themselves by designing and making a beautiful fascinator and by the end of the afternoon we had 17 gorgeous fascinators complete and on show!

Here are some pictures of the bride-to-be and her hen party showing off their masterpieces!

Hen party fascinator making classes can be held in one of our Edinburgh venues including Hotel du Vin, the Bonham Hotel, the Howard Hotel, Hemma, Urban Angel or Norton House Hotel or at your own venue – whichever suits you best. As long as there’s enough table space that’s all we need really!  All of our venues offer afternoon tea which can also be served with bubbles (which we find often helps with people’s creativity!!!) or various other drinks and snacks.  We can also travel to other venues within Edinburgh or outside of Edinburgh. We also have four fabulous venues that we use for our hen party craft and fascinator making workshops in Glasgow – the Corinthian Club, Blythswood Square, Hummingbird and the Butterfly and Pig Tearooms and are happy to travel to self catering venues in other Scottish destinations.

Packages can be taylor-made to make the class as simple or as extravagant as you like. The class can be themed to suit the hen party, we can adapt the class to make brooches or other accessories – it is really up to you! Discounts are offered for large groups, and for any booking for 12 more people, one person goes free!
