Are you looking for some hen party ideas? Creating the best hen party not only takes a lot of planning, but a lot of creativity. Finding a lovely venue willing to allow large groups of excitable hens can be a challenge, but you also need somewhere large enough for everyone to be able to relax. But, what else can you do to make a hen party be really memorable?

The classic pink sash and cowboy hats make the group stand out in a bar. These looks are part of the furniture in some towns though.
Many groups love opting for the classic hen party dress code, but some go for a more unusual look or theme.

What’s the Bride to Be’s favourite film? Maybe you can all feature a prop or a piece of clothing featured in that film. At my life drawing hen parties, the French artist look including berets and twirly pencil moustaches are popular.


The classier hen dos are the most understated and the most creative. Learn circus or Beyonce dancing skills perhaps or food and fine wine tasting or how about a little cocktail shaking..?

Having afternoon tea with your friends is a cool, sophisticated and refined activity. Why not dress up with a Jane Austen theme?

A group who did a life drawing session with me had a James Bond theme. I took the 007 stance with a plastic gun in hand and bow tie as the surprise for the Bride. They had the Bond theme songs in the background for the whole activity. The group sipped martinis – ‘shaken’ not ‘stirred’! If you like that idea, here’s a company that can complete the look.

Coming up with unusual hen party ideas is a challenge. It depends what’s available for you where you’re are. A few groups go to the country and stay in yurts for the weekend.

A weekend on a canal boat would be nice and leisurely. You could stop off at the country pubs dotted along the canal. Think Rick Stein’s ‘French Odyssey’ as he travelled and sampled the nice cuisine along the Canal du Midi. If a Canal in France is too optimistic, what about the canal ways in the UK?

Many hen parties base themselves in lovely venue in the middle of the country.

In those instances, you need the activities or entertainer to come to you. I’ve seen many groups hiring a chef to come to cater for them in the evening. Again, it depends on your location and what is close to you. For my life drawing sessions, I come to you. You can relax on the sofa, with drawing pads and charcoal and Prosecco at hand.
