It’s that time of year again! Love Island Australia is back! Love Island, the reality show that everyone loves to hate, and it provides the ultimate party theme that’ll get everyone in the “good-time party” frame of mind.

If you are planning a hen party, there really is no better theme!  Get your gang together for a beachy, vibrant party style. And let the games begin.

Here are the top 8 things you need to create a Love Island themed hen party.  From decor and dress to games and drinks.

1. Love Island-Inspired Decor

Well, you may not have access to a swanky Spanish villa, but you can still “get lit” with villa-style vibrancy!  Think festoon lights, brightly coloured bean bags, multi-coloured scatter cushions, palm trees, bunny rabbits, quirky LED neon signs and anything else that screams ‘paaaarttty’.

2. Beach-Themed Dress Code

Any party theme that allows for flip-flops or barefoot is a winner! No aching feet or blisters means you can dance like Lionel Richie “all night long!” You can also dress it up or dress it down! Bikinis, sarongs, kaftans, beachwear – anything goes as long as it’s got the holiday vibe.

Wanna get matchy, matchy, deck the crew out in swimsuits emblazoned with “henoritas!” Hot! Hot! Hot! And absolute insta gold.

3. Sunscreen & Sunglasses

Oversized glasses are a must. Not only do they look super cool and are sun safe, but they also hide a multitude of sins. Running mascara, crow’s feet, frown lines or just boozy eyes.

Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen! No one wants sunburn at their hen party. Especially if it’s pretty close to the big day. Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and sunglasses for everyone.

4. Cocktails

There’s no Love Island party without cocktails! Make sure to have a few signature drinks prepared.

A twist on a few classics includes The Love Island Iced Tea, The Mai Tai on paper and Sex on the Island.

5. I’ve Got A Text! Truth Or Dare Game

One of the LED neon signs in the Love Island villa is “I’ve got a text”. And to celebrate this, play the “I’ve got a text!” Truth or dare challenge. The game that keeps everyone on their toes! 

Each hen has to keep their phone on them and periodically throughout the day or night, someone from the party will receive a random text which includes a truth or a dare. In true Love Island style, they scream “I’ve got a text!” and the rest of the party comes running to ensure the correct truth or dare is carried out sufficiently well, otherwise forfeits apply.

The game can be coordinated by someone within the party or a trusted person outside of the shenanigans. It’s a great icebreaker at the beginning of the hen party to get all guests acquainted!

6. Photo Props

From inflatable flamingos and fruity LED neon signs, to Love Island photo frames, and famous phrase banners. Make sure you have plenty of photo props on hand to create and capture all the amazing memories of the day. 

7. Party Favours

From Love Island shot glasses, water bottles and name straws, to personalised keyrings, and beach bags. Make sure you have some fun Love Island party favours for your guests to remember the experience!

8. Gold Champagne Flutes

Switch the glass for a touch of class! You too can be supping your favourite bubbly bevvy from these regal champagne flutes.

Not only do these flutes look fabulous in photos, but choosing stainless steel or plastic means they won’t break easily. (Not like the hearts of those Love Island hottie hopefuls!)

9. Butlers

Get the girls fired up with your very own butler. From participating in games and dares to serving canapes, and keeping your glasses topped up. A butler is an excellent way to add a little spice to your Love Island themed Hen party! 

10. Time To Get WET WET WET!

Did someone say pool party! If you are lucky enough to be taking your hen party off to warmer shores, a pool party is a must!

To get that love island vibe, load it up with sparkly lilos and of course, gigantic floating flamingos! Chillax around the pool listening to all your favourite tunes from the Love Island Villa! Loving that vibe!

11. A Sense Of Humour

Love Island can be a bit… controversial. Be prepared for some good-natured banter and plenty of laughs.
