We're often looking out for the latest brilliant hen party idea so when we were let into the latest fabulous launch to come out of the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park we couldn't wait to spread the word! This month the 'Paint the Town Red' package will launch to much elation from hens all around the country and it simply has to be the chicest option!

Guests will check into their room and indulge in a pampering mani or pedi nail paint and polish by the award-winning spa team and once perfected you'll be invited to step into a taxi which will whisk you away to Christian Louboutin's flagship London store on Mayfair's Mount Street. There you will be plied with a glass of champagne and other treats whilst you try on their exquisite shoes.

After purchasing your favourite pair or pairs, you'll return to the hotel where the concierge will assist by taking your shopping bags up to your room so that you can settle into 'Paint the Town Red' cocktails at the Mandarin Bar.

The next morning slip on your favourite new purchase before heading to Bar Boulud for brunch and of course a bottle of red wine or two Bloody Marys - after all its only right to toast your new shoes!

Now that's my idea of the perfect hen party!
