Shh! Did you hear that? It’s the call of the disco ball and this season’s most coveted hen party theme: The Last Disco!
The disco ball. They’ve been a firm favourite on the dance floor for decades, but this season they’re back and BIGGER than ever (both physically and metaphorically). Get ready to drench your hen party vibe in the glittering rays of the disco ball this 2023, from dangling multiple mirrored beauties from the ceiling, to stuffing the hen party room’s fireplace with their glow, when it comes to disco balls - the more the merrier! Add a dash of retro glamour, a hoard of foil curtains and our Wife of the Party collection (naturally) and the following Last Disco hen party theme ideas and you’ll be good to go…
#1 Go BIG or go home
If you’ve opted for the Last Disco hen party theme, there’s only one way to do it - and that’s properly. We don’t want to see just a mere scattering of miniature mirror balls on the hen party table, we want to see disco balls EVERYWHERE. String them from the ceiling, have them rolling around the floor, intersperse their retro vibe with a cool silver foil curtain or two and a haul of sparkling cutlery and drinkware. This is not the time for subtlety. And, mix up those sizes! We want an entire family of disco balls!
#2 Personalise that Last Disco theme!
Behold the personalised disco ball, something to be treasured forever by the bride and brought back out for the wedding post-hen! We’re particularly smitten with these personalised designs by @discobybrodie! Available from Disco By Brodie's Etsy store, we love how this maker has brought a custom twist to the revered disco ball. Not only will it look good placed amongst some whimsical botanicals, but Disco By Brodie makes smaller cake topper versions to sit upon your cakes tiers too! Hurrah!
#3 Book a professional photographer
Get inspired by @rebeccajonesmakeup ’s gorgeous, editorial-inspired getting ready photos for your Last Disco hen and book your own professional photographer to capture those glamour-fuelled, Last Disco moments! We love this heavenly shot (by photography and videography duo Hazy Daze Weddings) of Rebecca’s fluffy mules, personalised mirror ball (by @discobybrodie FYI) and elegant pjs.

#4 Carry the Last Disco hen party theme through to your wedding...
Why stop at the hen party? Let this disco ball-fuelled decor theme inspire the wedding day itself! For inspiration, this incredible image by photographer Brogen Jessup will undoubtably whet the disco ball appetite and set your imagination in motion! Suspended from a frame at different heights and teamed with some achingly cool dried florals, we love the vibe these mirror balls create for this outside wedding! Perfect for the couple who want to level up their alfresco reception vision!

#5 Last Disco Dress Code!
It’s time to channel your inner mirror ball and go all out for the Last Disco themed hen party. This is your opportunity to wear that glittering, sequin covered mini dress you’ve been fawning helplessly over since you first spotted it on the gram, to don those sequin embellished trousers or rock that silver sequin disk mini skirt (à la Paco Rabanne) you spent last month’s rent on (oops). And, for ultimate Last Disco style, get the entire bride tribe on board when it comes to their hen party threads (just imagine the pictures)! Need some inspiration? We’ve got serious heart eyes over these ILA Glide Sequin Trousers at The AFTERWHITE (they’ve got some truly epic hen party-ready outfits available on their website FYI).

#6 Wife of the Party
If you’re looking for the perfect decor and tableware options for the Last Disco hen party theme, look no further than Team Hen’s new Wife of the Party collection! With everything from our shimmering iridescent Disco Ball Hen Party Paper Plates, Wife of the Party Silver Letter Balloons, banners, XL Reusable cups, foil curtains, paper napkins (and much, much more) on offer, that dream Last Disco hen party vibe is a mere click away!
#7 Last Disco Cookies
We’ve developed a huge crush on @cookieskitchenco ’s vibrant array of cookies! And, the Aussie baker’s latest disco collection will knock your socks off! Not only will these beauties look Instagram-ready on the hen party desserts table or by the bar, but they’ll make the cutest edible favours for the bride tribe too!
#8 Last Disco Styling
If your bride’s a fan of neutrals and has requested that her Last Disco hen party theme suits her Instagram feed, take a peek at @woottonlife ’s beautifully curated gram. We’re especially besotted with the above, where Kayley has worked her styling magic utilising a list of our favourite things: disco balls, champagne flutes, neon signs, neutrals and dried blooms. What more could you want?
