A Christmas Hen Party

It’s coming up to that time of year again where everyone is full of life and places get festive and the atmosphere grows. If you’ve got to plan a hen party and you’re not sure when to plan it for, carry on reading because we’re about to tell you why a Christmas hen party is a great idea!

Christmas time is great because it gets everyone in a great mood and it’s one of the best times of the year. But what makes it a great time to book a hen party? Let’s find out...

1. Decor

Why not decorate the restaurant/pub with Christmas items? Hang lots of tinsel, jingle those bells, and place a few candy canes around on the tables to really get into the Christmas spirit.

2. Dress Up

With a few possible themes to choose from, you and your girls could get creative and not only get festive, but you could wear the festivities. With options such as dressing up as a group of sexy elves or maybe see who can be the best Mrs Claus, great fun will be had and you’ll all fit right into the festivities.

3. Bring Sweets

One of the many reasons we all love Christmas is because of the boxes of sweets that become available at Christmas time. Whether Roses tickle your fancy, or maybe you’re a Heroes and Celebrations fan, bringing a tin of sweets to share around between the group can be a great idea. We all need our chocolate fix, don’t we ladies?

4. S-Elfies

Make the most of the fun and get some selfies with the girls...and maybe some random people. Christmas is the time of year where everyone becomes friendlier and more likely to mix with the people around. Use that as your chance to get some great selfies to remember the hen party after it’s all over.

5. Get Merry

What else comes with Christmas time? 12 Pubs, of course! Set out a route and play a little game in each pub for you and the girls to have that extra bit of fun and make the night even better. Set a rule to only drink with your left hand in the first bar, then talk with an accent in the second and so on! It can be great fun, so get creative.

6. Head to a city

Cities are probably the best places to be at Christmas time because of how busy they get, which adds to the fun and the atmosphere. Take in the Christmas lights display as you and your girls jump from pub to pub and make the night the best it can be.

Having your hen party at Christmas time is a fantastic idea and can really set the hen party apart from others because of how fun and jolly everywhere is.
