How To Throw A Spa Party

Wanna throw a party, but tired of the same boring cocktail parties? How about throwing a spa party. Why not? It's fun, different and your besties will love it.

Spa Party Tips

Send Out Invitations -- Invite your real bffs. Ya know, the ones that know everything about you. I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. The ride-or-die girlfriends that are down for whatever, even though they may have  a husband and three children now, for a good laugh, they may still have the urge to flash your grumpy, old neighbor. Tell everyone to bring the following:

  • A robe
  • A pair of slippers
  • Comfortable PJs 
Make Gift Baskets -- Women love free stuff. Even silly things are awesome if they're free. A simple basket with a few items is all that is needed. 

  • Manicure and pedicure kit
  • Bath salts
  • Bubble bath
  • Essential oils
  • Candles

Create A Spa Atmosphere -- Spas smell good. This is the perfect time to pull out 10 of the 50 scented candles you've received  over the years participating in Secret Santa with your co-workers. Incense are also a great touch. You should also have some new age music or soothing nature sounds playing in the background.

Spa Menu --  Refreshments are a must. You can go all out and make your menu luxurious like the top resort spas or you can keep it simple and choose drinks and finger foods that you know your guests will enjoy. Heck! Order a cake. This is a party, right? Other foods and drinks you might like:

  • Sparkling water
  • Margaritas
  • Fruit smoothies
  • Create your own spatini
  • Fresh fruit and veggie trays with assorted dips
  • Chips and salsa
  • Shrimp cocktail on ice  

Treatments --  When you're with your besties, it's always a party, but for your spa party you may still want to do spa treatments.  Hire a professional. You can hire an esthetician, nail technician or massage therapist to come to your spa party. Having everyone on a rotating schedule would be a great idea if you decide to hire all three.  Here is what you can offer:

  • Half an hour facial
  • Half an hour massages
  • Simple mani or pedi

Chick Flick -- After the relaxation is over. Rev things up by playing one of your favorite chick flicks. Who cares if you've seen Thelma and Louise a million times. Have you seen it with this group of a robe...right after a professional massage therapists has rubbed knots out of your back? 

Games --This is a great opportunity to dust off your board games. It's also a great chance to get to know you newer girlfriends better by playing Truth or Dare or I Never.
