    Default off topic: Hen's night PLEASE HELP

    Hi,
    I'm throwing my sister a hens party and i have no idea what to do!
    She doesn't drink, go to clubs, dance, actually nothing that comes under the category of leaving the house.
    I can't do something at her house because she doesn't want a hens night and every other person has children.
    I know if I listen to my sister and not throw her one, she will eventually bring up that I never threw her a hens party.
    So what is there to do? I live in the western suburbs of melbourne. So if anyone has any ideas please help me out!! I'm in desperate need!
    Oh it will be on June 30th and her friends arn't wanting to spend more than $60.
    EDIT: I would never hire a stripper! Or penis shaped food! I know that is not my sisters thing nor is it mine! I know she wants one because she will constantly mention a hens night than say no one wants to throw her one, to only turn around and say she doesnt want one. If I dont throw her one, it will be mentioned for the rest of my life by her.

    I actually said about Withes and Britches because I have read such awesome reviews, but she said she heard it was crap and her friends don't want to pay that much, so Im worried if i pay for the tickets that her friends won't pay me back. Also her mother in law is coming and my sister said she wants t be by nine!!! I was expecting the fun to have started by then! I'm completely stuck!
    I also looked into a high tea, but her boyfriend said she wouldn't do that! I even went and looked at the werribee mansion for pamper packs and my sisters reply was "I dont want some dirty person touching me"
    I've never had such a hard time negotiating with someone and I have 2 kids! lol

    Hooley Dooley! I don't envy you
    Maybe something as simple as a picnic at a park, an early dinner at a local restaurant.
    I honestly don't know!

    • High tea
    • Dinner
    • Cake decorating class
    • Day spa (there are mobile day spas)
    • You could get professional makeup artists to come to the hens night to give you girls a makeover and show you guys how to apply makeup.
    • A pyjama party since she doesn't like going out. Grab some big cushions, chick flicks, pizza, junk food and drink at home or in a hotel!
    • Cocktail making class
    • Life drawing class
    • Picnic in a park

    Maybe she's kicking up such a fuss because she actually meant that she does not want one? My female inlaw family insisted that I was just joking about not wanting a hen's night. I was serious, I considered it tacky and stupid.
    I told them over and over, no, I won't have one.

    So of course I get home one night to find out they'd used mil's spare key, hired a male stripper, and ordered p**is shaped cake and decorations.

    I walked out in disgust and slept over at a friend's house.

    If she said no, respect her wishes.
