Whilst December is the busiest month for proposals and love declarations, January is definitely hen party season. And what could be more exciting than a girls weekend away celebrating friendship and love!
I recently went away to a holiday cottage with some of my friends to kick off the New Year. It was great to get everybody together again, drink some wine, play some games and relax in the hot tub with good company!
With my best friend’s wedding coming up this year, it got me thinking about her hen do. As her maid of honor, there are so many things to consider, most important of course being the location and the activities.
Each hen party is different and one thing is for certain; you can’t please everybody in the group, but you can look at some unique ideas that most women would enjoy. This is why we spoke to Miriam at Hen Heaven, UK’s leading hen party organizer to share with us some of the most unique, and exciting ideas.
The Benefit Beauty & Bubbles package
Hen Heaven have exclusively partnered with Benefit Cosmetics UK to bring you the ultimate hen party package delight, the Benefit Beauty & Bubbles package. Spend a luxurious night in the cosmopolitan London, at one of the five-star Grange hotels in the centre of the city. You and the girls will start the day with some pampering at the Benefit Cosmetics headquarters store in Carnaby street, where you will enter make up heaven.
This activity is sure to leave you and the others ready to celebrate in style. Here, you will be welcomed with a glass of bubbly, before the professional make up session begins. This will give you the opportunity to meet and learn from the boutique’s make up experts. All the ladies in the group will get the choice to receive a mini mani or a faux blow. As if this wasn’t enough, you will also receive a Benefit goody bag with beauty treats and a £30 voucher to spend in store.
Once you are all glammed up, you are ready to celebrate the night away. Included in the package is also a two course meal with a glass of bubbly. After all, you have to keep the bubbly flowing. Hen Heaven will also organize your nightclub entry at a stylish bar in central London, where the cocktails come in tea pots. How cute is that! This is definitely a package to make the bride-to-be feel special and most importantly, a memorable day and night spent with all her besties.
The Pamper House
Ladies get ready to be amazed. If you are wanting to go for a more private type accommodation, you should definitely consider Hen Heaven’s very own Pamper House, located in Bournemouth. This seven-bedroom luxury home sleeps 17 people comfortably. Each room is decorated tastefully with beautiful attention to detail.
Downstairs, the living room is accommodating for the entire group, with a feature fire place. But what makes this house unique is that you will have your very own, private pamper room. This is a fully kitted room, inspired by a classy salon style look where you and the other girls can receive beauty treatments ranging from hairdressing, to nail treatments, massages, fake tanning and so much more.
All the pampering you want done, is available for you and the group in the pamper room. Bournemouth is known for its gorgeous seaside aspect, and we thought we’d let you know that the house is located steps away from the beautiful beach. This is definitely one to tell the girls about.
If Bournemouth is not your scene, you can choose from the other luxury homes Hen Heaven has to offer located in Nottingham and Brighton. Hen parties are not necessarily a breeze when it comes to organizing, but we hope we were able to inspire you with some fresh and unique ideas. And remember that you don’t have to do it on your own.
