"When my sister first asked me to plan her hen do for her, although I was honoured, I was also absolutely terrified as I'd not done anything like this at all before! My best friend Sarah Denton, who came to the hen party too, was a massive help and she found the website for The Secret Tea Party. I telephoned Mrs Stokes one weekend and explained that I wanted to plan a hen do in Bath. She was so helpful and really accommodating. I instantly felt better about the task ahead and much more at ease. Mrs Stokes gave me some very helpful pointers when planning and she thought of everything right down to the last detail. I was so pleased as I wanted to make things really special for my sister and Mrs Stokes and her team helped me to create the perfect day, thank you so much!!! I would highly recommend The Secret Tea Party to anyone wanting to plan a hen do or another special occasion for a friend or family member, you'll have a truly memorable day!"
