2014 is upon us and it’s January which means it’s either time to start a new diet, join a gym or quit smoking! Unfortunately, most resolutions do require a lot of will power and determination but thankfully something much more exciting also starts in January - the time to plan hen parties!!!! Yes that’s right, it’s time to sit down with the girls and plan the best Hen Party for the Bride to be! I’m here today to give you some suggestions and ideas to help you in deciding what you all want to do! So without further ado, let’s take a look at my top hen party ideas for 2014 which won’t disappoint!
Who would enjoy this: If you are looking for great value for money with the combination of drinks and food!
Cocktail making is a classic which never fails. The amount of happy hens which we hear from week in week out is endless. If you decided to book Cocktail Making, you will get the chance to get on the other side of the bar and learn how to make those extravagant cocktails which you love to drink! Your own private mixologist will be on hand to teach you how to shake, strain, layer and stir your drinks properly. They will also get you involved in plenty of fun activities so it’s not just a case of watch and learn but there will also be plenty of laughs and fun things to take part in like a Vodka train and more! At the end of the activity you can all enjoy tasty food platters to help soak all of that alcohol! Cocktail Making is available nationwide and you can view all of the packages here.
Who would enjoy this: If you want to learn a fun and flirty dance routine with your girls!
This 2 hour fun activity will make you feel sexy through and through with a fun form of dance with more than a hint of tongue of cheek with your feather boas (don’t worry as it won’t go further than taking off your gloves!). You and your hens will learn a sensual routine which includes the occasional pose, sexy walk and moves which aim to tease and charm. All of your hard work will come together in your very own Burlesque dance routine! This is a great activity and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. All props are provided and as a parting gift, you will all each receive a hen party gift bag which could include goodies such as dare cards, shot glass & garter and a memento book (exact products subject to availability). This is available nationwide and you can view our whole range of burlesque dance classes here. Also head on over to our dance class activity page for a whole other range of other dance classes which are available!
Who would enjoy this: If you love nothing more than donning your best dress and killer heels for a night out
Exclusive to UKGirlThing, the After Dark package includes dining in a choice of 6 atmospheric city centre restaurants ranging in cuisines and then using the UKGirlThing bar guide to go to the best bars the city has to offer. You will all then get to finish your night in style with VIP club entry which could include a couple of extras but I will keep these as little surprises for now! The great thing about this package is that you don’t need to arrange anything for your night (apart from taxi’s if you wish to use one!) as your evening meal is all booked and paid for, you will know which bars to go to after and then you will know where you will finish, so there is no thinking about what to do and where to go! This package is available nationwide and is exclusive to UKGirlThing! View the packages here
Who would enjoy this: If you want to feel pampered and enjoy some quality time with your friends but don’t want the party to stop!
Another UKGirlThing exclusive is a Spa-rty where you and your hens can enjoy spa treatments within a party environment. This is a perfect event for those who want to get gorgeous with their friends whilst music is playing and you are all enjoying some chocolate delights. You will have your own private room where beauticians will be on hand to ensure you leave feeling relaxed and radiant. Included in the package is a soothing foot treatment to eliminate aches and pains, followed by a face mask to purify your skin. Then you all can enjoy a beauty treatment which range from an aromatherapy back massage through to body brushing and full body moisturise. The activity lasts for approximately 2-3 hours and you can view all of the Spa-rty packages available here
Who would enjoy this: If you love creating masterpieces and secretly have a bit of a competitive streak!
Pizza making has recently been launched at UKGirlThing and it’s already become popular with our hens. It’s a chance to get an authentic taste of Italy on your Hen Party Weekend with the help of some Pizza Making experts. Before diving in and making your own pizza masterpiece, your private pizza expert first eases you in with a glass of Prossecco and some tasty starts to nibble on. Then it’s time to get the fresh ingredients out and for you to all make your own perfect pizza. Whilst your pizzas cook, you will all then compete head to head in a calzone challenge! There’s plenty of food to be made, plenty of food to be eaten and then just enough drinks to wash it down with! Pizza making is available nationwide and I expect this to be a big hit for 2014 hen party’s! View the pizza making activities here.
Of course there are so many other hen activities you can choose from but to give you some inspiration for 2014 the 5 hen party ideas above should get you started! All activities come with accommodation for either 1 or 2 nights and in bronze, silver or gold hotels.
