Here Are All The Ideas You Need For An Unforgettable Booze-Free Hen
While nothing gets a party going like a bottle of plonk, there’s a lot to be said for having an alcohol-free hen-party. You won’t wake up with fear from the night before, it cuts down on cost and your clean-up will be minimal.
However, you can still raise a toast to the future Mrs. with these fun, creative hen party activities.
One lump or two? There’s nothing fancier than an afternoon spent in a stately home nibbling scones and spilling tea (in more ways than one). Afternoon tea is a safe option if your hen party is inter-generational (you won’t have to subject Granny to phallic straws!).
Depending on what you’re after, there’s a wide array of venues to choose from. In fact, why not go mobile with a vintage tea tour and get some sight-seeing in to?
Arts and Crafts
Fancy getting zen while getting something to take home with you? A flower arranging class ticks both of those boxes.
Enjoy some alcohol-free cocktails while flower arranging, pottery making, or why not go outside the box with a brooch party?
Every hen brings a memento (a badge, a pin, a hair clip, jewellery, photos … you get the picture), that reminds them of the bride. These are then put together as a ‘bouquet of memories’ and passed person-to-person so they can get all nostalgic. Happy tears, guaranteed.
Learn about the history of perfume while creating your own signature scent with your besties by your side. You can’t get a more beautiful keepsake than that, can you?
Is it really a party if there isn’t pizza involved in some way, shape or form? Learn how to make one of Italy’s finest food exports and get competitive with a Roll Your Own Pizza Challenge, while enjoying some dough balls and alcohol-free fizz.
See who has got what it takes in the kitchen and settle the age-old debate – does pineapple belong on pizza?
Trade tipples for chocolate as you learn how to make amazing sweets from an experienced Chocolatier. Indulge your inner Willy Wonka and learn the tools of the chocolate or fudge making trade, depending on your preference.
This is an activity where licking the spoon is actively encouraged – score!
It’s time to root out the leg warmers! Channel Jessica Simpson in her seminal work Public Affair by booking out a roller rink for the day.
Whether you’re a seasoned skater or a total newbie, this is a guaranteed laugh soundtracked by the biggest tunes of the 80s.
Heavy on the glam, easy on the ‘camping’, there’s more choice than ever when it comes to a weekend of boutique camping. Enjoy the great outdoors without getting down ‘n’ dirty in unique surroundings, with most catering to any add-on activities you may want.
Some places have extra boujee offerings, including outdoor hot tubs and saunas, giving you and your hens the best of both worlds.
Raise your hen party above the usual squalor and find something fun and booze-free to help ring in a new life for the bride-to-be. From fancy camping to humble arts and crafts, there is plenty out there for everyone to enjoy.
