7 Great Ideas for a Hen Party at Home

7 Great Ideas for a Hen Party at Home

Hen Party   /   Feb 8th, 2019   /   0 COMMENTS   /  A+ | a-
A hen party is a key part of the wedding preparations, but it doesn’t have to involve a 6-hour train ride, a weekend away or any kind of flights. In fact, it is entirely possible to have a brilliant hen party right in your own home.  Here are some ideas of the kind of things you can do to have a hen party at home.

Treasure hunt

For spring and summer weddings, a treasure hunt around the house and garden is ideal for a small hen party.  The idea is to split everyone into teams, give them a list of items and a sack to put them in and send them off.  You can even add some fun photo and video challenges in there to make it a little more exciting.  Then there can be prizes for the winners plus bragging rights, of course.

Home cocktail party

You don’t need to go to a fancy bar to have a cocktail party!  Hire one of our buff butlers to run the evening and he can serve cocktails in his own unique style.  This lets everyone enjoy themselves without the bride or chief bridesmaid having to be the one doing the work.

Photo memory wall

Hen parties are about celebrating the past as well as the future and this can lead to a fun theme. Get everyone to bring some funny and favourite photos, put them all up on the wall and have everyone tell a story about what was happening.  Shared memories are great for this ideatoo.

Dance class video

You don’t need a professional dance instructor or a fancy studio to learn to dance and this makes for a hilarious hen party idea.  Get a dance instruction video that will work for everyone coming, clear out one of the rooms and make it into a dance studio.  Set up the TV and all run through the lessons.  You may want some cocktails to celebrate afterwards – and rehydrate, of course.

Makeover day

This is ideal for small parties and all you need is a mobile beautician who can come and spend the day with you and your friends.  Then you can have a makeover, maybe your hair done or even try out some styles for the wedding day itself.

Personal chef

If you all love a great meal, there’s no need to go to the restaurant.  A personal chef is someone that comes to your home and cooks a fantastic meal in your kitchen.  They will bring along the ingredients and the menu can be tailored to any allergies or eating requirements so there’sno concerns about someone not being able to enjoy the meal.

Wine tasting

Did you know you can have a wine tasting session in your home?  There are companies that offer wine tasting experiences and they bring everything to you.  You can sample the wines, learn about the different types and even buy a few bottles if you decide you have a new favourite.

We hired a butler for a 50th Birthday party - we were a little worried as being a little bit more mature that we would end up with a butler around the same age as our sons! We had Andy and all we can say is .... brilliant! He was the perfect host he put us all at ease and took over our gathering for the next hour. He made the start of our evening so much fun and everyone had an amazing time. So if you are considering it just go for it and let them know about what would work for your group. Amazing thank you Andy, scores on the doors 10 put of 10 for your butler duties and buff well 11 out of 10 ! Thank you

I booked 2 butler's for a 50th Girls night to entertain a group of 8 girls. I was a little apprehensive as i booked as a surprise. Our butlers were Martin and David and they were absolutely fabulous. It was the best part of our weekend and will be remembered for a long time. They were very professional, fantastic sports and such good fun I really cannot recommend them enough. I would not hesitate in booking them again and all I can say is if you are thinking of booking them don't hesitate as you won't regret it. Thanks guys you made our night and the birthday girls night one she will never forget.

Our butlers were on time, professional and exactly what we had hoped for. They read the room well, played some great games and were generally all-round good fun. I’d definitely recommend booking with Butler Bookings, we were very satisfied with the service that was provided.

John was a butler and a gentleman! He made a good 30th into a great party atmosphere. Would definitely book again and highly recommend. Thanks again.

We were very pleased with our butler, Andy. He was an excellent entertainer, arrived in good time and got everyone up and doing games...even the more prudish ones of the group! We were a hen do group of mixed ages (from 25 to 55) and Andy adapted his games perfectly! He was super organised and so it gave us bridesmaids a break from our duties so we could just join in with the fun too. Everyone loved it and we were lucky to have him! Please pass on our thanks again! Lucy

Absolutely excellent. I hired 2 butlers for a party of 14. They were very professional and great at entertaining. Kept the party flowing smoothly and kept everyone’s drinks topped up too. Great ideas for ice-breaker games. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

Very friendly, personable butlers. Easy going and full of good suggestions. Directed a group of 20 women very confidently in games. Very pleased. Many thanks :)

I cannot fault butler bookings, communication was great from start to finish and we had such a good laugh with the two butlers, Marc and Kieran. They played games with us and always kept everyone's drinks topped up. Thank you both so much for being awesome and making my sisters hen do one to remember!

Rachael

Brilliant service. ‘Dave’ the butler was amazing, served drinks, got involved in all of the games and brought lots of laughs to my family and friends. Would definitely use and recommend this service again. All 30+ of my hen party guests all came to me afterwards to say how fantastic he was with everyone, and my cousin (the bride) said he was genuinely a lovely person too. Thank you Dave and butler bookings 🙌🏼
