My friendship group has entered what I call: 'wedding mania'.
One by one each of my friends is starting to get engaged which means for the next few years I've got a diary full of engagement parties, weddings and the all important hen-dos.
While it's not my turn just yet, I've partnered with The Stag and Hen Experience to put together my list of dream hen party ideas...which naturally involves lots of food!
Who doesn't love a bottomless brunch. They're perfect for any kind of celebration really; birthdays, engagements, catch-ups and especially hen-dos. It gives you a chance to actually sit and have a catch up plus you've got good food and all the merriment which comes with unlimited Prosecco! My favourite brunches in London have to be the sushi buffet at Roka in Canary Wharf or 100 Wardour Street.
Afternoon Tea...with a twist.
There's so many afternoon teas in London so it's easy to find which would fit the style of your hen party. Fashionistas should head to the Pret a Portea at The Berkeley while the Mad Hatter's Tea Party is perfect if the eccentric bride to be. If she's more of gin drinker, she'll love the G & Tea at Mr Fogg's Gin Parlour or you can keep it classic at the iconic Claridge's.
All aboard the Ginger Line
Immersive dining is another great idea for a hen party group. Rather than just having a standard meal, you also get a whole host of theatrics thrown into the mix. The Ginger Line is one of the most popular immersive dining experiences which will have you moving through rooms and into ball pits as part of your dining experience but there's also restaurants such as Bel Canto and Circus where you get a side of singing and dancing with your meal.
Get hands on with a Masterclass
Masterclasses can also be a fun activity to pack into the day. It doesn't have to be alcohol related, although cocktails at the London Cocktail Club isn't one to be missed. There's also Macaron + Martini classes (yes you read that right), one for Oysters and even one to hone your skills at carvery.
So there you have it - some fab foodie events to consider when you're next planning a hen party. For more inspiration or ideas, head over to the The Stag and Hen Experience website!
