Recently I was involved in the throwing of a hen party, my own. The night started in the afternoon really with some of the my family gathering at my home, there was lots of party food, nibbles and drinks to get the mood started and the stomachs lined before the trek up to the local clubs and bars. Obviously with some of the hens attending my house and a distinct lack of maid of honour (lets not go there!) it's fair to say that I was left with some fairly last minute arrangements to carry out and didn't really have anyone local to come shopping with me in the short time before my hen. I ended up doing a large selection of my shopping online, on hennighthq.co.uk so I could get the items delivered and not have to worry about picking them up in time as well as going to work every day, also delivery was free with no minimum spend which is always fantastic.
This plastic cutlery, 8 sets in vivid pink, comes provided with a plastic bag. You can just rip the top off the bag and then after a quick rinse the cutlery is ready to set out and use however you choose. I just left mine on the table and let the girls help themselves as it wasn't a sit down meal or anything formal like that.
Within this pack there are 8 spoons, 8 forks and 8 knifes all in a vivid pink colour. I love the colour and it was what made me purchase it, also, there were matching items available on the website such as the tablecloths and other bits and bobs so I could give the evening a coordinated feel without spending a fortune! Each packet of cutlery was only £2.49 with the price decreasing slightly depending on the quantity purchased. The spoons are teaspoon size, or similar, and they were ideal for scooping up dips and pasta salads to keep everything a little bit more hygienic. The knifes were serrated and were quite good for cutting up little sausage rolls and things like. The forks had a fairly pointed edge meaning they did actually stab in to your food rather than just pushing it around your plate.
Overall I must say that this cutlery was a lot better than I was expecting. The colour was my sole purpose for buying and the fact that I was just going to be binning afterwards, however, after giving this a wash I've placed it inside a sandwich bag and I'm going to keep it for when we go out for picnics and snack lunches in the summer as it's easy enough to just throw away if it gets damaged and I don't have to worry about using my good cutlery while out and potentially losing a piece of the set. The cutlery set is probably more aimed towards adults as it may be a tiny bit too sharp around the edges for young children but as long as you supervised them I see no reason why they couldn't use this. I was very pleased with how sturdy the plastic was and nobody had the embarrassment of having their cutlery break while eating their meal. Also, most of the food got eaten so that must be a good sign that the cutlery was working well. If you are looking for something to jazz up a gathering of girls then why not give these a try? I was very pleased with the £2.49 price tag and the free delivery was fab as I could just order the quantity I wanted and even ordered another packet when some extra people confirmed they were coming.
A set of pretty pink plastic cutlery (try saying that when you've had a few) to make your dinner table really pop with colour! Great for Hen Night meals or bridal showers. 8 knives, 8 forks and 8 spoons provided.
