I’m Danielle, the creative mind behind Team Hen, a modern Hen Party emporium specialising in gorgeous favours and gifts.
I am hugely passionate about Hen Parties, and offering you and your squad a wide variety of choice and design for every aspect of your hen.
Hen Parties are hugely personal, and your tastes are at the forefront of everything we design, make and stock. Gone are the days of flashing willy tiaras and garish pink tutu’s; and while we understand that willy straws are often a hen party staple, you won’t find them here.
We offer a (slightly) more classy view of todays Hen Do, with beautiful colour palettes, creative design and unique products you simply won’t find elsewhere
Team Hen was founded in 2014 whilst i was on maternity leave from my corporate IT career. I was missing the hustle and bustle of city life, and whilst i loved being a mum, i sorely needed something to occupy my mind and creative spirit.
My best friend got engaged and i threw myself into planning the hen party. It quickly became apparent that the willy tiaras i so proudly wore at my own hen party 4 years prior, simply weren’t going cut this time around.
So, armed with just my laptop and basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, i designed some bags and badges for the event. I had them made locally for just a few pounds, and to my delight they were a hit!
Fast forward 5 years, and today Team Hen is an award-winning online retailer, employing three full-time staff and various free-lancers.
We are all mum’s, with a variety of ‘former-life’ careers; we work flexibly around our childcare commitments to bring you a worldwide, 24/7 shopping experience.
We may not always be online for a chat but you can rely on us to get your orders shipped, and your enquiries answered within 24 hours (Monday-Friday!)

Founder & Creative Director
I ran the business alone for just over a year, until just after my second child was born.
Aside from Hen Parties, I love a dark & twisty crime novel, am an avid Masterchef Australia viewer (the UK version is not a PATCH on the Oz version), a seasoned snowboarder & excellent curry maker!
I love a glass of chilled rosé and ANYTHING chocolate orange flavoured. I now have two school aged children, and a hamster apparently.
Nikki joined the team back in 2015. Initially she made our best-selling wish bracelets from home, but as her daughter got older and eventually started school Nikki was able to come aboard full time (hurrah!).
Nikki is a talented baker and loves to bring in delicious treats for the office - much to our delight! A self-confessed coffee addict, Nikki is a regular at our local Starbucks drive-through. Nikki is an avid listener of Radio 2’s Pop Master, and wipes the floor with the rest of us.
Nikki #2, as she is fondly known, joined the team in early 2018 and brings a much-needed sense of order to the office. Her natural flair for precision means no order leaves us less-than-perfect, and your orders are packaged with love and care.
When she’s not in the office, Nikki can be found the netball court, or walking her beloved dog Carter. Though her children have now left school, Nikki is testament to the fact that the pick-up’s and drop-off’s never end.
