Ok, so, you’ve decided that you and your significant other are going to tie the knot! Congratulations! Once the planning gets into full swing there is a seemingly never-ending list of things to do to pull off not only the big day, but other key events like the hens party, bucks do and honeymoon (just to name a couple). If you are planning a hen’s night or day, there are now so many new and interesting ways to revamp the classic day. We’re talking painting and wine, cocktail making classes and even a pop up picnic. To take one thing off your hands, we thought we’d get a list together of the top hen’s party activities and venues in Perth!
Pop up Picnics
Perth really is the perfect location for an outdoors hen’s party celebration with an endless supply of beautiful open spaces and reliable weather to match. With this in mind, the guys at Boho and Prosecco offer cosy experiences for up to 20 guests complete with all the key ingredients for the ultimate picnic. We’re talking rustic low picnic tables, rugs, cushions, all glassware, floral table décor, candles, lanterns and nibbles. If you are also keen to elevate the experience further, these guys can organise a flower crown workshop with your own crown to take home at the end of the day!
For those artistic brides, combining painting with the famous pinot noir grape may be the perfect combination for your upcoming hen’s celebration! Coined as ‘Art classes with a twist’ the team at Pinot and Picasso offer packages for groups where each guest is guided through a painting experience led by a qualified artist. Prepare for some ‘interesting’ designs as most groups tend to present vastly different adaptations (depending on the amount of classes of pinot that is consumed). Regardless of artistic prowess, this is the perfect hen’s party option as all equipment is included and hiring a private room is simply a phone call away.
Flower Crown Workshop
The quintessential hen’s day would not be complete without a fun filled afternoon of flowers, wine and cheese. The team at Down the Garden Path offer really reasonably priced packages where you and your guests can be guided through a demonstration to construct the ultimate flower crown. Fresh seasonal flowers, tools and all accessories will be provided, you just need to provide the venue! This might be your answer if you’d like a celebration in the comfort of your own home.
Spa Day & High Tea
Nothing screams exclusive-hens-day-celebration like a fancy high tea and spa day combination. The team at Bodhi-J at the Westin Hotel should be your go to for treatments ranging from relaxation massages to facials and/or pedicures. The list is extensive! Following your fruit platter and champagne poolside (a common predecessor to any treatment at Bodhi-J), you can make your way downstairs for high tea in the Haven Lounge!
As you may have already seen, the team at Horizons West specialise in transport! With that being said, we love planning a customised wine tour especially in the Swan Valley. For those future brides looking for a custom route covering all the very best in gin distilleries, wineries and restaurants, look no further than our Ultimate Guide to the Swan Valley. Some key hitters include Sandalford Winery, Tyler’s Estate and Harris Organic Wines, just to name a few.
Why not capitalise on the beautiful Swan River of Perth by organising a private boat cruise for your hens party? Most companies in Perth offer boats that include impressive sound systems, plenty of eskies to keep your drinks cold and option to customise the vessel to suit your theme. This is a great option if you have a larger group as some boats can accommodate over 100 people.
For those hens that love a gin and tonic, the guys at Gin Republic certainly know a thing or two about this perfect concoction. This great hens idea will ensure your group receives a gin and tonic on arrival before deep diving into gin history, flavours and mixers. From here, you’ll have a go at creating your own and you’ll leave with not only a new set of knowledge but a 500ml bottle of your own! Heck, you can even make a night of it and stay down in Freo! We’ve written a guide for that one too.
Even wanted to learn (or attempt to) dance like Beyonce? Well the guys at F is For Dance have listened and offer their very own ‘dance like Bey Hens class’. Here you’ll work closely with a dance instructor in your own private room to learn her signature moves and then as a group perform a routine to one of her hits!
If you have a full weekend up your sleeve and looking to seriously keep the party going, why not consider a trip to Rotto for your hens party? The team at Discovery Parks Rottnest have glamping accommodation which is perfecto for a small group looking to spend some time on the beach. Complete with comfy linen, ensuites and private decks we highly recommend this idea as your base for a weekend of drinks at the Rottnest pub and bike rides across to some of the best coves in WA around the West End.
Bringing the list home strong is cheese. The guys at the Cheese Maker put on a serious show and know a thing or two about camembert, mascarpone and cream cheese. So much so, that after a short educational session you’ll try your hand and make some yourself! Morning tea and coffee is offered at the same time. This one is a great option to kickstart your day followed by possibly combining this workshop with one from the list above!
And there we have it, a solid list of ideas to help you organise your next hens day in Perth! As we specialise in transport, we can help take another thing off your hands and can organise your wheels for the day. Our sales team is ready to chat and we can create a custom itinerary for you for the day.
