hen night: phase 2

We went to one of my favourite places, Rick's Cafe and I was stoked to find another whole gaggle of girls waiting for us there.

Ilna & Ankia


Angela & Tertia


Claudine & Coco & Me


Ankia & Ansie (my wonderful MIL!)


Vicki & Me


Minki, Margarita & Me


Liezl & Margarita

Sure, they look innocent.

But they're not! Cause then came the part where I had to do ridiculous things I would never normally do.

Like drinking champagne through a penis-straw.



I also had to answer questions about BB and our relationship. If I got it right, I could open a gift. If I got it wrong, I had to perform a task pulled from a hat. Like...

...doing the macarena...


...the can-can...


...and snorting like a pig...


...at least I got loads of luscious lingerie to make up for it!


There was some drinking when I got questions wrong...




At least not only by me...







We laughed, a lot!













And then, just when I thought it was all over and time to relax, a wardrobe change!

Looks like you had a blast! Why didn't I get to drink through a penis-shaped straw, dammit??

Looks like soo much fun.

I also LOVE Ricks Cafe (off Kloof street)

Cate Subrosa said...

Yeah, they got me drinking out of the penis straws too... bleurgh!

Hannah, it did and it just got better!

Ruby, if I hadn't lost my little peepee I could've passed it on to you. I can't BELIEVE I drank through a penis-shaped straw!!!!!!!

Brazen, Ricks rocks! It's also one of the places BB and I visited often right at the beginning, and where we had our engagement party so it's loaded with great memories!

Cate, I can't believe I just read that... So glad I'm not the only one. I like to think that I'm not one of those tacky whorish girls you know?

Rachel said...

I told my bridesmaids at the weekend that penis shaped items were not to be present at my hen party... I find things like that a little tacky and too much!

Looks like you had a great time though, can't wait to hear about the wedding. xx

We did the same thing to my sister with the penis straw. She had a penis water bottle too, so you're not alone. Oh, that costume you have on just makes me laugh. What a good sport you were!

London bride said...

I had penis straws and I told myself we never would, but you know how these things go... Plus it is only the once!

Redframe - don't worry about feeling tacky.
I will eventually post my own pics, but I had 2 hen celebrations - one small dignified one that was very much arranged by me, and one big surprise one that was FULL of flashing light up genitalia, and the ubiquitous penis straws.
I thought I would hate it, but it was much more fun than I would ever have thought possible, and I thank my friends for completely ignoring my wishes!
