Jen throws Courteney an Irish-themed hen party

Courteney Cox's best pal and former Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston threw her an Irish-themed hen party.

The pair have been besties since appearing in the top TV comedy together, and Jen took inspiration from Courteney's fiance Johnny McDaid's Irish roots for the party's theme.

"Jen went all out and decorated the dining table with green and white bouquets, hand-made mint chocolate truffles and green velvet cupcakes, green and white napkins with shamrock place settings and Celtic charm champagne glasses," an insider revealed.

Eleven of Courteney's closest pals and family members attended the party at Beverly Hills' Il Pastaio restaurant, with McDaid's mother Pauline also turning up for some Guinness chocolate cheesecake.

The insider added that Courteney's husband-to-be also dropped by to say hello to the guests.

Courteney (50) began dating McDaid late last year after being introduced by mutual pal Ed Sheeran, and announced their engagement via Twitter on June 27 by posting the same selfie along with the captions "I'm engaged to him!" and "I'm engaged to her!"


McDaid (38) proposed at Jen's house after asking Courteney's daughter Coco if he could marry her mum.

While the couple's wedding venue hasn't yet been revealed, there have been reports that they h ave different ideas over the location as Courteney wants an intimate Malibu wedding and McDaid would prefer a big Irish bash with all his family and friends present.
