What’s a hen party? Its like like a housewarming party, where you buy things for a new home?

It’s a Bachelorette party, the female equivalent of Stag Night.

Ya.. in this case, it’s a very ‘civilised’ tea party. NO strippers 😉

I don’t know about in Australia, but I think it’d be quite a common practice to give the couple gifts off their registry for receipt at the engagement party. At least that’s how it’s been for the engagement/wedding/housewarming parties I’ve attended in New York.

I think the gift registry is for the wedding present here – at least I hope it is!

Check out http://www.maxwellandwilliams.com.au for some inspiration on the tea party! As for engagement parties, you definitely do bring a present – in my experience quite a substantial one. Usually something for the home, something both partners can enjoy! In my case, for my last engagement party I bought them tickets to an upcoming concert instead 🙂

The salt/pepper shsakes look awesome! I think something for the home’s a good idea, yeah.. going to get it tomorrow 🙂

In my experience, gifts are generally expected at engagement parties. The last one we went to, we got the couple martini glasses and a martini shaker. 🙂
