Pyjama Party 

If you're more into face masks, manicures and a relaxed environment eating chocolate covered strawberries, then a pyjama party hen is the option for you. Think matching pj's (which you can reuse on your wedding day and beyond), scented candles, endless snacks and your favourite chick flick (add in a bottle of wine or mocktails, whatever your vibe) and you have yourself a pyjama party of dreams. 


Hen Party Activities 

I mean a hen party wouldn't be a hen party without a fun activity to get stuck into, here are several unique hen do activity ideas for you and your friends to bond over and celebrate your new chapter.


Creative Workshops 

Forge Jewellery & memories, if you are looking for unforgettable experience then forge a piece of silver jewellery for everyone in the party. April Doubleday Jewellery holds creative hen do jewellery workshops at her lovely home in Devon, so if you fancy a weekend away or are in the surrounding Devon area why not pay April a visit for your hen and create special memories whilst making a beautful piece of jewellery.

In this workshop you and your party can forge a piece of sterling silver for the wedding and/or everyday wear with a glass of prosecco at the end of the session to celebrate your achievements and the forthcoming wedding.


Make Your Own Hair Accessories

If you’re looking for an alternative, more chilled-out hen activity that gives you the chance to spend quality time with your friends, how about joining Elsa Rose Boutique to create your own beaded headband, hair pins or hair comb? Hair accessory workshops are the perfect alternative hen activity that leave you with a keepsake rather than a hangover! Available at your chosen venue within 35 miles of Weston super Mare, Somerset, perfect for hens visiting Bristol. Bath or Exeter for the weekend.

Sarah has had some great feedback from happy hen's who have joined her workshops before.

Charlotte said: “Sarah was amazingly helpful, and I came away with a one-of-a-kind piece that I’m thrilled with,” while Leila and her hens shared “We had so much fun! Highly recommend doing this for your hen party!” More than anything, I love helping people to try something new and learn skills they can take with them after the event. Plus, it means you have something to wear in your hair for the big day! 

Arts & Crafts Workshop - Mosaic

Why not get art's and craftsy and create some beautiful and unique mosaic's. Pip from Kharma Mosaic has a passion for making mosaics accessible to everyone and have a fun get together at festivals, boho weddings, hen dos and any event you like.
Pip will come to you with beautful mosaic tiles in all shades of colours and you can choose what to make from a variety of bases which are all weather proof and can be kept inside or outside. A popular choice for hen dos is to make a joint giant heart shaped mosaic, this way everyone adds their own colours and shapes to a base and you have your own bespoke mosaic to give as a present to to happy couple.

Chocolate hen parties are perfect for groups of different ages and personalities, whilst the bridesmaids might be up for drinking and partying but your mother in law might want something a little more calming. At Choccotastic, their Chocolate Hen Parties combine the two to ensure everyone has a fun and creative time. If you do want to move on to some drinking and dancing, their parties make a great pre-activity, or they can also include the alcohol, music and hen party games.
We have all been to a hen party with a cocktail making class or a spa treatment, think outside the box and do something a little quirky and unique by having a chocolate hen party activity.
