Fabulous Hen’s Party Ideas For Winter

Winter is a great time for a hen’s party because it is so romantic and cosy! From foodie pleasures and pampering sessions to dancing classes and private dining, these ideas will help you organise a fantastic event that your bride will love.

Pampering For Hens

A pampering session is a classy hen’s party idea and you can’t go wrong with it. You can take the girls to a spa resort for a weekend of relaxation, or just treat them with an indulgent massage before heading off to a nice restaurant. But if you want something a little more exciting, why not organise a makeup or manicure class at a salon and involve some delicious treats such as cupcakes and champagne! Taking the girls to a bespoke perfumery where they can create their own scent is a new hen’s night trend and we are sure everyone will love it.

Gourmet Experiences

If your bride is a foodie, you can surprise her with a decadent gourmet experience! How about chocolate tasting? Or, wine and food pairing, at an exclusive location? Cookery classes are very popular, and we are sure the ladies will love to learn a few tips from an experienced chef, or you can also take them to a Japanese restaurant for a sushi making hen’s party.

Fun Activities

If you need some exciting and original hen’s party ideas, think outside the box and focus on the bride’s favourite activities. If she loves going to the cinema, then organising a private screening with snacks and champagne could be one of the best girls’ night out ideas for her. Does she like dancing? Perhaps you can organise a dancing lesson, so all the girls can learn a few steps and practice for the dance floor at the wedding reception! You can even go for something a little cheeky like a burlesque or pole dancing class.

DIY Workshops

Maybe you are looking for some even more creative hen’s party ideas? DIY workshops are very trendy and many brides love them because they are often focused on making gorgeous wedding decorations or fashion accessories. Ladies can make floral arrangements and paint ceramic vases, or even create fabulous headpieces and jewellery. Organising a cupcake-decorating workshop is also a great idea, especially if the bride loves baking and wants to personalise her wedding menu with some homemade sweets.

Themed Party Ideas

A small house party can be a lot more fun than the most decadent night out because it is intimate and you have all night ahead of you. The first thing you need to do is come up with some great party ideas the bride would love. Think things she likes the most. Which movies does she love? What is her favourite city in the world? Some of the trendy party ideas include a ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ inspired event or an ‘Alice in Wonderland-style’ tea party. Different variations of a vintage theme are also very popular. If you think your bride would rather have a more casual night in, prepare amazing snacks, a selection of chick flicks and some classical hen’s party games for the best pyjama party ever!

Extraordinary Girls’ Night Out

If you are in search of some utterly glamorous and sophisticated girls’ night out ideas, consider starting that special night with a ride in a limousine! Toast with champagne and take a few snaps in a limo before heading off to your venue. A gourmet dinner in an elegant restaurant is an idea everyone will love, and private dining is the classiest option for a hen’s night. Many exclusive hotels and restaurants are offering this service, but you can also choose to rent a penthouse for a celebrity-style private party instead.

Weekend Away

A fun weekend away is one of the best hen’s night party ideas for any season. The choice of destination is crucial and this should be your main concern. You can opt for a location in the mountains such as Thredbo for a real winter fairy-tale experience, or escape to a warm destination like the Whitsundays where the girls can enjoy sun and sea.
