Ladies Who Lunch Afternoon Tea Hen Party


The trend of a sophisticated afternoon tea party for a bride-to-be’s hen party is becoming increasingly more fashionable. From the Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast, to The Culloden Estate & Spa in Holywood, Farnham Estate Golf & Spa Resort in Cavan to the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Limerick, there are plenty of gorgeous settings to choose from to make your hen party in Ireland unforgettably glamorous. Those in search of a mobile Afternoon Tea service will love the vintage inspired Afternoon Tea parties by the team at Social Bee! 

Whether you’re a hen or the bride herself, it’s always fun having an excuse to dress up and feel pretty for the day. Here are some of the latest afternoon tea-ready styles out right now.

ASOS: Texture Wiggle Dress In Placement Floral Print

For a dress that epitomises the elegant, grown up tea party look you can do no wrong with this textured floral dress from ASOS. Its colours are soft and crisp yet also bright and make a perfect dress for transitioning into spring. The round neckline, sleeves and longer length add together to create a chic, elegant dress. However, the kick split and V-cut at the back, along with side pockets, add a fashion-forward edge. Keep hair and makeup simple to let the large print take centre stage, with nude strappy heels and a clutch bag to match. Don’t forget to stow it away in your wardrobe and save it for a summer wedding!

TOPSHOP: Petite Jacquard Midi Skirt

Being lady-like doesn’t mean having to be quiet – for a pattern that pops try this Topshop jacquard midi skirt. The length gives it an elegant feel, whilst the structured shape high on the waist creates a fun, girlie silhouette. The volume of the skirt allows for sleeker shapes on top; wear a fitted long sleeve crop top or bustier in white, charcoal or black to bring out these colours in the skirt print and keep the outfit simple, yet striking. If you want to have more fun with it, throw on a feathered or fur stole as the model has done above to add an extra hint of glamour.

OFFICE: Major Multi Strap Point Block Heels

A midi heel is the ultimate ladies footwear style; elegant in its height but also in it walkability. With the trend of pointed shoes whether it be pumps or courts not slowing down any time soon, this pair of champagne coloured midi heels from Office are the perfect choice. Switch up your refined look with a double ankle strap whilst the block heel is a nod to another fashion trend in shoes right now, giving your outfit a fresh modern twist. Team with pastel colours and fine gold jewellery to create a sugary sweet outfit with a quirky twist.

ASOS: Big Flower Embellished Grab Clutch

For a truly feminine accessory this floral embellished circular clutch bag is certainly my personal favourite. Not only is it a fun shape but the 3D embellished flowers ooze femininity and stylishness. As a quirky statement piece you can team it with a simple outfit, in pale pastels to both match the clutch and let its darker colours stand out. Or if you like to clash your textures pair it with sequins or lace, such as ASOS have styled theirs above. Stick to similar colours, with the lilac working really well here or a light grey to contrast the colour palette of the bag. Play about with big embellished accessories such as long earrings and necklaces to add to the different textures and sparkles.

So ladies, if you’re treating yourselves to a gorgeous afternoon tea-styled hen party there are lots of ways to dress fun and feminine for the occasion whilst also adding a little bit of interest to your outfits, for a truly chic day out.
