Alternative Hen Parties and/or Bachelorette Parties

Guest Blog

Today I'm happy to welcome The Papered Parlour to the blog to share with us some alternative hen party options. And, of course, similar ideas can easily be created for bachelorette parties in the US. I personally love the idea of getting together with your girls for a fun afternoon of crafting and chatting. And, after the activities, everyone will be able to take home what they've made. What a great keepsake from the time you've spent together. I am now going to turn the blog over to The Parlour Girls who will share the details on their alternative hen party.


The Hen Party season is officially upon us but if you’re not keen on L-plates and fairy wings, why not book an alternative hen party at The Papered Parlour? We offer the perfect opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy an intimate afternoon in a creative paradise.

All you need to do to book your day is select an activity, pick a date and let us take care of the rest. We offer 3 irresistible packages...
• Screen Printing: Print a Bag @ £49 per person
• Silversmithing: Make a Ring @ £57 per person
• Millinery: Make a Fascinator @ £63 per person

Sip on delicious parlour ‘cockteas’, indulge in our fabulous homemade cakes, and learn a time-honoured skill with your very best friends.

Here are some photos from the first hen party in our beautifully redesigned new workshop space. Helen and her hens spent the afternoon with acclaimed milliner Judy Bentinck, designing and making their own bespoke fascinators...
