Without further ado, let’s begin:


1. Choose a theme

It’s important to pick a theme for your masquerade party. Try Google Images, Pinterest or even Facebook for inspirations and ideas. Disney Princess masks, sexy masks, bejewelled masks or even animal masks…the possibilities are endless. If you want to keep things simpler, you could even just use a colour theme. A black and pink masquerade party sounds quite hot, don’t you think?

2. Pick a venue

Will it be indoor or outdoor? What’s your budget like? Does it have enough space to fit everyone and your party decorations? Does it have a music player with speakers? These are questions that you have to ask yourself when picking a venue. It’s also best to pick a venue that already has an existing party package for less headaches.

3. Prepare party decorations and props

The decorations for your masquerade party are dependent on the theme that you have chosen, but the few classics such as tinsel, buntings, streamers, balloons and flowers should not be left out. Check with your venue as to whether they provide things like table cloths, chair ties and stage backdrops.

4. How about the food and drinks?

You would want to make sure that the food served at your masquerade hen party can be easily eaten with a mask on. So, please leave out the messy curry and serve food that are bite-sized. Plan a menu that has a good mix of sweet and savoury dishes. As for drinks, have both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Bubbles are a must no matter what your party theme is. Just make sure that there will be plenty of straws for your guests.

5. The entertainment

Bear in mind it’s a masquerade party so you need to keep your guests entertained until the stroke of midnight, where the grand unveiling of their identities happen. So what can you do to keep them occupied till then? Since it’s a hen party, throw in a few classic hen party games such as fashioning wedding dresses out of toilet papers, Q&A with the bride-to-be, dares and many more. If you have the budget to hire a live band or a DJ, make it happen.


There, tips on how to throw a fabulous masquerade hen party. Remember, keep your wits together and have fun, girl!
