10 brilliant hen party ideas that can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter what their age…
As the busiest time for booking hen parties begins in January, we spoke to hen specialist Sophie Jordan from Chillisauce, the UK’s largest hen organiser, who shared her top 10 perfect hen party ideas and activities…
Create A Perfume
Perfume making is perfect for any age and will put a unique twist on any hen party. Alongside a lot of laughs and some girl bonding, groups will learn a thing or two about the art of perfume making from fully trained perfume consultants before getting to create their own signature scent. Each guest will leave with their chosen fragrance presented in a beautiful 5ml glass bottle, and the bride is presented with a 20ml diamonte atomiser of her personal perfume.
Candy Making Class
If the bride to be has a sweet tooth this fun-filled afternoon of candy crafting is ideal. With unlimited prosecco for the adults and canapés on hand, the group will have the opportunity to make, (and eat), gorgeous candy flowers or traditional lollipops. The bride will receive a lollipop with her name on it, a tiara and a white apron as a welcome gift. The maker of the best lollipop receives the title of ‘Candy Queen’ and wins a 100kg bag of sweets!
Personalised Treasure Hunt
A treasure hunt is excellent fun if you are looking for something entertaining to do during the day which will get all your party involved and is completely tailored for your group. It’s also the perfect way to get to know a city, especially if you haven’t been before and you’ll also find out some interesting information that you would never have guessed unless you had taken part!
Themed Dance Lessons
It’s time for everyone to take those dance moves away from the bedroom mirror and transfer that energy to the bright lights of the dance studio. If your hen party has a theme then this is a great way to embrace it, with range of dance styles available covering everything from Grease, Can Can and Bollywood to Thriller.
School Sports Day
Relive old times and experience the simple fun of an old fashioned school sports day. Not everyone will be a kid anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress and act like one for a day. Choose from a number of activities including the egg and spoon race, wheelbarrow race or the classic tug o war.
Record Your Own Song
You are accompanied by a qualified studio engineer and producer who will give you a tour, explain the process and help you record your very own song. Whether you decide to get serious and belt em’ out like Beyonce, or get silly and choose inspiration from Glee and Pitch Perfect to try out your acapella skills, you’ll end up with a CD you can keep forever to remember the day.
Get outdoors go for a lovely countryside walk with your new furry companions who will help carry the drinks and snacks to your final destination. Finish the day glamping in a tipi or a yurt. Add afternoon tea or an outdoor yoga class. It will be a memorable trip with the bonus of making new cute and adorable friends.
Combine a relaxing punting tour along the famously picturesque Cambridge Backs, as well as having a go yourself, where you will hopefully learn the art of punting without falling overboard. All the spacious 12-seater tour punts are very comfortable and offer stunning views for all onboard. Why not opt to go during sunset and drift along the Cambridge backwaters, glass of Champagne in hand, as Chinese lanterns light your path through the shimmering waters?
Everyone loves a trip to the theatre, it’s one of the most sought after activities in London. With so many shows available, the only problem will be deciding which one. Whether you want to enjoy an afternoon show, or attend as part of your evening entertainment, this will be a hit with the whole group.
Set in a stunningly authentic 1950s salon and mini diner, combine Vintage Hair Styling and a retro-inspired beauty makeover with a photoshoot, attending a 40s/50s Dance Class or enjoying afternoon tea to transport yourselves back to the fun and frivolity of a bygone era.
