I recently attended a hen party in which I was in charge of props - which of course involves buying things that enable the bride-to-be and the guests to look as tacky as possible!! I was given a budget - and I had fun picking out items that would compliment the guest - although I use "compliment" using the loosest interpretation of the word! One such item I bought was a Diamante Hen Party Top Hat which cost me £2.69 from www.partydomain.co.uk - although I had seen them on other websites for about the £3.50 mark. I didn't think this was a bad price but it was a shame there wasn't a discount if they were bought in bulk as I had to buy 12 in total.
The hat is a hot pink colour and is in the style of a feminine top hat. It is rigid in shape but is topped with a nice pink felt material and then has a black trim around the brim - the brim is about 2.5 inches wide. There is a "satin" band around the hat (it didn't feel like satin to me) and on this satin band is the words "Hen Party" made out in little diamonte stones.
It's fairly comfortable to wear and it fitted all of the girls on the hen party comfortably, with the exception of one girl with very big hair and she didn't want to squash it on her head and so just had it perched on top. The material wasn't itchy or irritating, but after a while of wearing the hat my head would get hot as there are no breathing / ventilation holes and so it was a matter of taking them on and off for most of us. By the end of the night however, they still looked in one piece and no worse for wear and so it made a nice momento of the evening for us all to keep - and of course save for the next one.
Overall, this is a decent little prop for a hen party - but it would be better if you could buy them in bulk for such an occasion.
This bright pink top hat will make you feel sassy and classy! Decorated with black satin ribbon, crystal diamantes and black edging, you won't be able to resist wearing it and letting everyone know that the Hen Party is in full swing.
