Tell us a bit about your business…

Betty’s Birds provides creative, crafty parties for fabulous people across the UK. It’s the perfect place for hen party and event organisers who want to do something fun and different.

What made you start up the business…

Back in 2009, I decided to leave my career in costume to start a business in London with a friend that taught people how to sew. We delivered fun and exciting workshops for a predominantly female audience, teaching people to make “Fancy Pants” or handbags, wiggle skirts and clutch purses.

A few years later, this led to a business in Bristol called The Art Troupe. I had gathered together over 30 artists who had all written their own workshops, and we went into schools and delivered workshops to children. Halfway through 2015 we were asked by a vintage tearoom called Cox & Baloney to deliver their hen parties – they asked us for specific workshops and I was able to do them all. The hen parties took off and I decided to re-brand and focus solely on these, deciding we would deliver them nationwide! I definitely felt there was a need for more modern, funky and fabulous hen party workshops.

Now only a few months since our launch, we have recruited an incredible team of brilliantly fun and friendly Birds to deliver workshops across the UK, and it’s going really successfully.

What makes you Unique…

We feel like we have a completely different offering to other hen party providers out there, with an eye on trends and wedding themes as well as a very open mind to new ideas and delivering bespoke workshops. We pride ourselves on having the most unique, stylish and eclectic workshops around.

Alongside the old favourites, we love to get bizarre and bonkers with Make me a Mermaid, Unicorn Costumes, and the most colourful and fabulous materials for your fascinators, flower crowns or customised knickers. With our backgrounds in the arts, in costume and design as well as fine art, we are obsessive when it comes to finding decorations and accessories that are bright, colourful and of great quality – meaning that everyone leaves us having made something extraordinary!

What kind of couples match your style of service…

All sorts, liquorice all sorts! We seem to cater mostly to an audience that has an eye on trends, who are quite often also avid festival goers. There are so many women out there who are excited by being creative and crafty, and we are the perfect option for their hen party!

Tells us what you love about your business…

I love meeting new people, delivering workshops that people enjoy and talk about for years to come. It’s a great feeling to bring together groups of friends and hold workshops that encourage silliness and creativity!

Most favourite event/ wedding…

I went to a wedding a few years back that was Disney themed – how brilliant! I was of course the fairy godmother complete with wings, tulle skirt and a happy-ever-after wand. The bride was dressed all in white tulle printed with golden leaves, and it even had hidden fairy lights under the skirt. I don’t think I’ll ever go to a wedding that can top that…
