When planning a hen’s party, you want to make sure that you strike the right balance of fun and classy. It should be something that everyone can enjoy while still having all the elegance that the bride-to-be deserves for her special day. Luckily, we’ve got all the best things to do in Melbourne for a classy hen’s party that everyone will love.
What we love about a luxurious hen’s party is that it achieves both comfort and class. A classic version of the pampering hen’s party includes a trip to a day spa or a relaxing overnight retreat. If you’re looking for something a little bit more hands-on and social, there are classes that can make the pampering more active and engaging. By signing the girls up for a soap making class, soy candle workshop or essential oils class, you can add a creative spin to the traditional luxurious hens party ideas. Plus, after this classy hens party is over, everyone in the group will go home with their pampering handmade creations as a memento from the day.
Flower-based hens party activities are both beautiful and meditative. And there are so many unique ways to incorporate flowers into your special event. One option is to arrange for a professional floristry teacher to come to your hen’s party with all of the materials to create amazing bouquets. Or, you can plan to attend an outdoor flower crown making class in Albert Park.
If you’re looking for something with even more of a meditative aspect, you can centre your hens party around a tranquil Ikebana class. Another option - ditch the real flowers altogether. You can create a classy and fun activity where you learn how to make amazing floral art with embroidery. No matter how you incorporate flowers into your hen’s party, they will make everyone in the group feel relaxed while keeping all of the elegance of a great hens party.
What bride-to-be doesn’t want to roll up her sleeves and share a wonderful meal with her best friends and loved ones? But finding the right food-based activity for a hens party is not easy. You want the food to be more on the high-end side to keep the party as classy as possible, but you don’t want the whole vibe to be stuffy and over the top.
Luckily, there are plenty of classes to choose from that will give you the hens party elegance you’re looking for. The Vegan Grazing Platter Workshop, for instance, will allow the girls in your group to create visually stunning and delicious food plates. Another great option is a fun Japanese Cooking Class, where you’ll learn how to make quintessential dishes like sushi and tempura. Spanish Cooking classes are another of the most popular things to do in Melbourne for hens weekends. These fun classes are sure to engage all of the women in the group, and you’ll be amazed at how amazing the gourmet food options taste.
Alright, maybe you’re looking for a classy way to start a long night of fun, because while you may turn up the volume on the hen night later on, the group may still want to start things off slowly. So, what can you do to start things off with a little bit of elegance and grace? A cocktail making hens party.
There are cocktail making classes to match any bride-to-be’s taste and preference. You can choose from classes led by the mixologists at some of the most popular restaurants and liquor distilleries in Melbourne, such as OASIS, Rice Paper Scissors, the Mofo Lounge and mobile company The Cocktail Queen. Everyone in the group will have a chance to create their own signature cocktails and there will plenty of time for tasting. If this activity is part of a long night of fun, it will be the perfect way to get the ball rolling, and take some pictures before everyone has a little too much fun.
You’ve heard the old saying, “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” It’s an old rhyme that suggests what a bride should wear on her wedding day for good luck. And one trend we’re excited to see is a something blue hen party themes. It doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone has to produce the blue item that the bride will wear on her big day, but it can help to give the day a fun and classy theme. You might, for instance, invite all of the guests to wear blue dresses while the bride-to-be stands out in white.
Another way to incorporate the something blue theme is to sign up for activities where blue is the star of the show. Indigo Shibori Dyeing classes, for instance, use stunning blue dye to transform clothing and linen bags into works of art that the bride-to-be will cherish forever. In a Stoneware Ceramics Class, each member of the hen’s group will walk away with an elegant mug or cup with a beautiful blue glaze. You might even sign the girls up for a fun earring making class where each bridesmaid can make blue earrings to wear for the rest of the night.
There are lots of fun ways to incorporate something blue into classy hens party ideas. And the theme is unique enough to be appreciated by the bride-to-be and all of her guests.
