14 Bridgerton Hen Party Ideas

Season 2 of Bridgeton is nearly here! Let’s have a look at some ideas to have a perfectly delightful Bridgerton themed hen party that will have your bride feeling like a duchess.

Bridgerton inspired Games/Activities

Clay Pidgeon shooting

Nothing makes you feel “Posh” quite like heading into the countryside in your boots and going shooting. There are lots of places worldwide that offer up this activity so have a look in your local area and I’m sure you’ll find it.

Lawn Games”

A lawn game was a quintessential part of life for those of the English Gentry. Luckily for you, games like Quoits and Croquet are still a readily available and easy addition to a hen party with decent garden space.

Horse-riding

Another favourite of the aristocracy, nothing quite feels like galloping through the countryside with the wind in your hair. Bonus points if you wear something billowy, like a good cape.

Afternoon Tea

Going out to a tearoom or hotel for an afternoon tea is an excellent way to feel like high society, or even just indulging in a picnic with a selection of sweet treats and tea in a field somewhere is an excellent nod to the promenade picnics of Bridgerton.

If you are in Dubai, you can even order this Bridgerton themed afternoon tea from Sugargram to be delivered straight to you!

Pin the Junk on the Duke

We’ve kept it extremely classy thus far, but it is a hen party let’s not forget. I think we can all agree that Regé-Jean Page (aka Simon) is delicious, to say the least. So why not utilise a poster of him for a traditional game of “Pin the Junk on the Hunk” (though you may have to settle for fully clothed as I couldn’t find a high resolution topless poster anywhere… and I looked). Get your hands on some stickers like these or print some on card and use double-sided tape. If you’ve never played the rules are simple. Blindfold each guest, spin them around and get them to pin the “junk” closest to where they think it should go. Closest wins!

Bridgerton Hen Party Decor

Hanging Flowers

I think hanging garlands of lavender wisteria flowers will forever be associated with Bridgerton in my mind. Get some artificial bunches and a net and follow this Tik Tok Tutorial for a quick and easy way to cover your venue in it. Or, get a ready-made garland to save yourself some time.


Teacups and Tea sets

Is there anything more British than a good cup of tea? I should think not. Use vintage teacups collected from thrift shops or purchase sets like this one. If you don’t use them for drinking, you can stack them on books, put candles in them or gift them as favours. Pair them with these napkins and these paper plates or even use them as towers/cake stands for your afternoon tea! Check out this blog for lots of cute ways to incorporate teacups into your hen party.

Doilies

Lace doilies might seem like something your great-grandma would have lying around, but they were all the rage in society households back in the day. Paper Doilies are an affordable but effective way to decorate your hen party venue for a true “Bridgerton” vibe.

Bridgerton Hen Party Food & Drink

Afternoon Tea

It is absolutely not a Bridgerton themed soiree without afternoon tea. Consult a proper British guide like this one or this slightly more American (but still very informative) explainer. To build a perfect afternoon tea fit for royalty. Grab a blanket and head outside or set up a dining table with some fine china to feel like high society. 

Themed treats

With enough notice, you can reach out to local bakeries and commission some custom sweet treats in a Bridgerton theme such as these cookies or these cupcakes.


Other sweet, floral treats.

Any sweet treat in a pastel colour or involving edible flowers or bright British fruits will be a perfect accompaniment to a Bridgerton themed hen party. These floral doughnuts or cookies are a beautiful touch, as are these elegant lavender macarons. I also love this trend where initials are decorated in fresh fruits and buttercream and flowers like this, or even more minimal trends like this. You can get the bride’s initials or even her full name if you have enough guests to feed.

Extra Details for a Bridgerton Themed Hen Party

Tea Gloves

Giving each of your guests dainty lace tea gloves to wear while they sip their drinks will really add that Bridgerton feel and have all of you believing you really are ladies

Fans

Fans are also a quick and easy way to feel fancy, and if you are staying in a warmer climate then they are a legitimately useful gift for your guests. You can get affordable paper multipacks, slightly more expensive individual lace fans or if you’d like to feel really fancy get yourself feather options instead.

Bridgerton colouring book pages

If you have any downtime over your weekend, you might consider leaving some of these colouring book pages, or these ones, lying around for people to colour as they wish. To lean into the period drama feeling of it all, you could use watercolour brush pens instead of colouring pencils.

However, you decide to indulge in a Bridgerton themed hen party, I’m sure it will be fit for a duchess.
