Planning the Perfect Winter Hen Party

With the winter weather well and truly on the way it’s time to wrap up warm, light the fire and start planning! If you or your BFF have decided on a winter hen party then have a look at our top ideas below for planning the perfect winter hen weekend!


Book a cosy cottage – There is nothing better than escaping to a gorgeous, country cottage with your girls, complete with hot tub and roaring fire. Choose a cottage that is close to the local pub, has woodland walks to clear the hangover and hire your own caterer and beauty therapist to nourish and pamper without you having to lift a finger…heaven!


Choose a winter dress theme – Autumn and winter are the perfect excuses to get your sequins, faux fur and glitz out, so a 1920’s or Vintage look is a great idea for a seasonal hen party. You could all wear beautiful headpieces or fascinators, or better still, get together and spend the afternoon making your headpieces before wearing them out that evening.


Indulge in a chocolate tasting session – As the temperatures drop and the evenings draw in, decadent activities like chocolate and whiskey tastings are becoming more and more popular. Chocolate and alcohol tend to be real crowd pleasers, and these kind of evenings are definitely a fun and alternative idea for you and your best girls to celebrate.


Champagne Afternoon Tea – Who can resist an afternoon spent in a grand country hotel by the fire with delicate sandwiches, scones and jam and a glass or two of fizz? This is also the perfect time to play some games with the bride! Although maybe keep the racier ones for back at the house!


Supper Club – What about a fabulous Supper Club hen party? Plenty of catering companies arrange for cooking teachers and chefs to come to your house, where you can all get involved with preparing a fancy meal and the decorations – don’t worry, they clean up after themselves. It’s great fun for you and your girls as you get the relaxed atmosphere of a restaurant, as well as the bonding experience of cooking together, and learning new skills in the kitchen!


Winter Spa Day – Who doesn’t enjoy a day of pampering with a glass of champagne in hand? Lots of hotels now offer special winter spa packages, which gives guests the full use of the spa, a delicious dinner, winter cocktails and an overnight stay in a luxurious room – bliss!


Ice Skating – Faux fur bando? Check. Thick socks? Check. Prepared for sores knees and bums? Check. Then you’re ready to embrace the cold and take to the ice! Make the experience even more memorable by skating with a spectacular backdrop, such as Longleat House or Hampton Court Palace, which put on some wonderful ice skating rinks during the winter months. Complete the day with a glass (or three) of mulled wine.


Autumn and winter are all about decadence, spoiling, comfort food and cosying up with friends, so it really is the perfect season to have a hen party! Let The Perfect Weekend Company plan your wonderful winter hen do!
