Planning The Perfect Highlands Hens Night

Planning The Perfect Highlands Hens Night

A Highlands Hens


Are you a bride-to-be planning a last hoorah with your gal pals? Or maybe you’re the one in charge of organising a Hen’s to remember for your BFF? The Fold have the best ideas for a celebration to remember, no matter what kind of fun you plan on having!!!


For The Hen Who…

Wants a girl’s night away from the hustle and bustle, while still having a fun (and at times, cheeky!) time.

First stop, The Mill, Bowral for beautiful cheese from Cheese etc, some luxurious chocolates from Ms Peacock and some cupcakes from Lee Lee’s Cupcakes (and, yes we asked the question – she WILL custom make penis themed cupcakes for you!!). Once you have all your supplies, you’re heading to Fulford Folly, a gorgeous four bedroom house in Bundanoon. This spacious accommodation will be the perfect getaway for your Hen’s Do and has all the luxe trimmings (think champagne bar, free standing bath and a fire pit!!).



For The Hen Who…

Is not afraid to giggle at herself, and will give something new a go, especially if a glass of red is involved! 

Paint Pinot is a fun group painting class that can be set up wherever your heart desires. “You will be surprised how well your creative fluids flow with the help of a glass of wine in one hand and a paint brush in the other” Tina from Paint Pinot says. We love the sound of this! Painting, bubbles and a whole lot of laughs.

For some location inspiration, the guest room in the Berida Hotel is a beautiful spot for a girls night! You’ll have the fire blazing, drinks flowing and paint brushes...painting - what a fun afternoon! 

The bonus is when you’re finished you can stay in one of the newly-refurbished-but-still-full-of-character rooms at the hotel. But not before popping into Bistro Officina, the hotel’s restaurant, for drinks and some nibbles off the bar menu

For The Hen Who…

Wants it all! She also loves to hand over the reigns and let someone else organise all the finer details.

You’ll be picked up by the Highlands Tour Co for a jam packed day of allllll the things! We love the sound of the Brides Delight tour which consists of a tour of Bare Body Beauty Co including product testing and kombucha tasting (we can’t promise you’ll want to leave empty handed!), followed by an antipasto platter and wine tasting at two award winning wineries (we can’t promise you’ll want to leave here empty handed either!). 


For The Hen Who…

Loves a rowdy night drinking and dancing, and drinking and dancing. 

You’ll start at The Imperial Hotel Bowral, with amazing traditionally cooked wood fire pizzas and cocktails to match. When you’re ready, you’ll walk less than a block to the Royal Hotel. Here you can have a few wines and a dance to the live band that starts at 9pm (only on Saturday nights!). We hope you’ve got your comfy heels on because you may only have a short walk from pub to pub- but you’ve got a night of dancing ahead of you! And vodka, lime and sodas, so many vodka, lime and sodas.


For The Hen Who…

Wants to spend a quality day with her best girlfriends.

Flower Flower in Mittagong will be the most fantastic hosts of a High Tea and Flower Crown Making Workshop, for you and your gals! Spend some time together, gossiping, giggling and working with the most beautiful of blooms to create a unique headpiece and memories that will last forever. Don’t fear – the day doesn’t have to end here! Don your crown as you hit up the local shops Mittagong has to offer! The Fold love Twisting Vintage for some amazing and unique vintage finds, Just a Smidge for some trendy wardrobe staples, Mind Over Manor for the most luxurious homewares and there’s the Mittagong Antiques Centre to browse all the antiques.



For The Hen Who…

Appreciates a seriously fantastic meal and goooood wine.

Birch is a beautiful experience for a smaller group for lunch or dinner. While you can do your typical entree, main, dessert, we think you just HAVE TO do the five course degustation with matching wines. We also think it would be outrageous if you didn’t start with one of their unique cocktails. You should probably finish with one as well - after all it is your hens night!

For The Hen Who....

Loves jewellery

That's gotta be all of the ladies, right?! If spending a few hours in a beautiful, creative studio with lovely beads, surrounded by a whole lotta colour, champagne and your besties sounds like a plan, then a Louisarose and Co beading workshop is the go for your group! Have a read about how gorgeous the workshops are here. Then, with your shiny new bling dangling from ears, neck and wrists, head on out for a gorgeous lunch and a shop in the gorgeous Berrima.



So no matter what kind of send off to married life you are after, there is something in The Southern Highlands for you! If you’re game, make a weekend of it and merge some ideas together! Happy Hen’s to YOU!!
