How to throw a great Hen’s Party!

February 8, 2010

Throw your friend a classy but cool Hen’s Party she will love and be the best bridesmaid ever!

Peter Suttle has attended hundreds of parties including Hen’s Nights
over the years in his role as a Butler for Butlers in the Buff. Having
worked as a Butler himself in the UK before purchasing the company’s
first ever franchise in Australia, Peter has some great tips to plan the
