How to Decorate a Boat for a Memorable Hens Party

A hens party is a special occasion that marks the end of the bride-to-be’s single life and the beginning of a new chapter. If you’re planning a hens party on a boat, decorating the boat can help create a festive atmosphere and set the mood for a memorable celebration. In this blog post, we’ll share some ideas on how to decorate a boat for a hens party.

Choose a Hens Party Theme

The first step to decorating a boat for a hens party is to choose a theme. A theme can help you create a cohesive look and feel for the party. Some popular themes for hens parties include nautical, tropical, and glamour. Once you’ve selected a theme, you can choose decorations that will complement it.

Balloons and Streamers

Balloons and streamers are a classic decoration that can add a festive touch to the boat. Consider using balloons in the bride-to-be’s favorite colors, or in colors that match the party theme. You can also use streamers to create a colourful backdrop for photos.

Everyone loves balloons. They’re a simple and easy way to add decorations for hens party on a boat. But we need to be conscious of the balloons and how they are secured, as we don’t want to harm the environment and our beautiful waterways. Helium balloons need to be weighted, so they don’t blow away, and all balloons need to be strongly fastened.

Personalized Decorations

Personalized decorations can add a special touch to the boat decorations. You can create banners or signs with the bride-to-be’s name or photos. This can make the party feel more customized and show the bride-to-be how much she is loved.

The Bride-to-Be balloon letters are hugely popular and easy to attach to the boat via string/cord. Hang them in areas to create a backdrop or above the tables.

Table Decor

If you plan to have a meal or snacks on the boat, consider adding some table decor. You can use themed plates, cups, and napkins, and add some floral arrangements or candles to create a more intimate atmosphere. Table decor can also be a great way to tie the decorations together and make the boat feel more cohesive.


Lighting can help create a festive atmosphere on the boat. Consider using string lights or lanterns to create a cozy vibe. Lighting can also be a great way to highlight certain areas of the boat, such as the dining area or the dance floor.


Props can be a fun addition to the boat decorations. Consider bringing along some silly props, such as boas or sunglasses, for the guests to wear during the party. Props can add an element of fun and help create a lighthearted atmosphere.

Remember to always keep safety in mind when decorating the boat. Make sure decorations are securely fastened and won’t cause any safety hazards. Always follow the guidelines of the boat rental company to ensure a safe and enjoyable hens party.

In conclusion, decorating a boat for a hens party can be a lot of fun and can help create a festive atmosphere. By choosing a theme, using balloons and streamers, adding personalized decorations, including table decor and lighting, and bringing along some props, you can create a memorable hens party that the bride-to-be and her guests will never forget.

Top Tip: Decorations that don’t take away from the floor space are ideal. Allowing your group the space to move around the boat.
