The best hen party celebrations don’t always require jetting off abroad in search of sun, sea and endless sangria. Instead, there’s plenty of fun to be had at home in the UK – and bundles of activities that can be enjoyed without even leaving the front door. Yep, that’s right, hen party activities that can be enjoyed in your jammies!
So, whether you’re opting to have a night in – and when you see our selection of luxury hen party houses, we don’t blame you – or you’re staying local in your bride’s own property, here are some of our favourite fun hen party ideas at home.
Get the evening started with a DJ
Because what’s better than pre-drinks? Pre-drinks with your very own private DJ. Fill the fridge with your favourite tipple, perhaps get a cocktail making competition underway and allow Liv to take care of all the music. Trust us, she knows what she’s doing.
In fact, she’s played all around the world and even supported Nick Grimshaw from Radio 1. Feel free to give her a few song suggestions but don’t take it to heart if she refuses to play Boyzone. Again. With the music sorted, all that’s left for you to do is to keep the glasses full, show off your best moves and get a few videos for the gram.
Sit down to a private dining experience
With all that dancing, you’re not going to have time to cook for all the hens. And who would want to anyway?! It’s a celebration after all. Thankfully, you can arrange a private chef to come to your house and take care of everything. He’s not just any old chef though. Ben was a BBC Masterchef finalist and has cooked for the likes of Lily Allen and been given the stamp of approval from many food critics across the world.
For one night only, he’ll prepare and dish up a fine dining menu at your dinner party and even clear away afterwards. What a dream. If you have a particular hen party theme, Ben can even create a menu to match.
Seize the day with yoga and brunch
After an evening of partying on your hen night, it’s likely that you’re looking for something to blow away the cobwebs the next day. And somehow we don’t think a greasy fry up will cut it. Instead, why not organise yoga and brunch?
For one whole hour, you’ll bend, stretch and get into flow before being shown to your seat – dressing gowns are a must – to enjoy the finest brunch platters in the city. Even better, vegan and vegetarian hens are catered to so no one has to miss out.
Get arty and start the party
Another popular hen party activity that can be brought to you is life drawing. In this one and a half hour session, you’ll have the chance to put your drawing skills to the test as your model gets into a few different poses. Your bride may even be invited up if you ask nicely!
Of course, this is a hen party so it wouldn’t be fair if there weren’t a few shots and hen party games included. It’s a great way to release a little creativity and is ideal for all ages. In fact, we guarantee your nan is gonna love it.
Tantalise your taste buds
We all know that the perfect night in depends on what’s in the fridge. So, why not at least try and make your celebrations look classy with a DIY cheese and wine tasting evening? Ask everyone to bring their favourite bottle of wine and their favourite cheese and get ready for a night of tasting and tipples.
Don’t forget to pack some accompaniments to go with it. By that, we mean crackers and chutney. Not gin. Although that is a great idea.
Enjoy some R&R
Indulging in a little me-time doesn’t have to involve going to a luxury spa. In fact, if you choose a hen party house with a hot tub, you could create your own experience at home. Not just that but there’s plenty of beauty therapists who are more than happy to come to you to do some treatments. Alternatively, you could make some hair and face masks and try your hand at nail painting for a DIY evening. You could even create some party bags with little sheet masks and eye masks for a personal touch.
