If you have been tasked with planning an extravagant hen party for your best friend, now is the time to start planning. Whether that involves heading abroad for sun, sea and sand, or visiting the gorgeous British countryside for a lazy weekend, Lauren of Last Night of Freedom has rounded up the most luxurious and sophisticated ideas for a gloriously glamorous hen party…
Keep Calm and Detox
For a calm and tranquil hen weekend, nothing beats a restorative spa weekend.
Planning a wedding can tip even the strongest soul over the edge, so a relaxing day at the spa may be just what the doctor ordered.
From historical and charming Roman Baths, to luxurious spas in 5-star hotels, to ultra-fancy treatments at your hen weekend accommodation; it’s important to indulge yourself and soothe away any stress on your hen do.
Keep it oh-so-cool and stylish on your hen weekend with Opposuits.
Forget about the flashing willy tiaras, gigantic L-plates and glitzy fairy wings; these Opposuits will transform you into an uber-trendy hen ready to take on the world.
Opposuits were originally designed for men, but after seeing how gosh darn good these suits look on the fairer sex, we decided to share them with our hens. And, these aren’t just any ordinary suits; they’re super high quality with a rich purple lining and chic slim cut – ideal for business meetings, weddings and birthdays.
Afternoon Tea with Bubbles
Celebrate in style with a gorgeous afternoon tea.
This quintessentially British afternoon tea is superbly indulgent, sumptuous and sophisticated – the perfect way to spend your hen weekend. The English tradition typically includes dainty finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, a selection of petite desserts and, of course, tea and champagne.
From afternoon tea in the contemporary and super-swish Six, a glass rooftop restaurant on the Newcastle quayside, to the traditional and luxurious settings of the Hilton Hotel in the centre of London; we offer afternoon tea in locations up and down the country.
Take the Bride-to-Be back to a time of sophistication, elegance and style, with a divine vintage hen party.
There’s nothing like a Victoria Sponge, chintzy china, floral bunting and quaint napkins to transform your hen do into a good, old-fashioned knees-up.
Spruce up your hen party venue with some gorgeous vintage décor, tuck into some delicious cupcakes and bask in the plush surroundings as you celebrate your last night of freedom.
If partying until the early hours and performing on the karaoke at 3am are not your style, a cocktail making class is a spectacular alternative.
Dabble in the art of mixology and try your hand at everything from the classic Martini, to the fruity Cosmopolitan, to the sophisticated Moscow Mule. And, even though you’re sampling all of your creations, you can still use the excuse that you’re ‘walking away with a new skill’ on your hen do.
Creating your own signature scent is a subtle art, and this workshop is a wonderful place to let loose and showcase your creative flair.
Not only is this an excellent way to break the ice, but you can even create a unique fragrance for your big day.
Sweet Like Chocolate
For a truly decadent and gourmet experience on your hen weekend, a chocolate making class is just perfect.
Under the guidance of a chocolatier you can create some delectable chocolate truffles whilst supping on uh-ma-zing chocolate cocktails. That’s right, chocolate cocktails!
These terribly indulgent workshops take place all over the UK and you get to take your chocolate creations home with you to show off, of course, and scoff them all. Heaven.
