Spa Day Party at Home

With everyone concerned about the economy these days, people are cutting back on luxuries such as Spa treatments, yoga classes, and weekly mani/pedi’s.  It is such a shame….because everyone needs a little pampering now and again!  Take matters into your own hands, and invite your friends over for a Spa Day at home.

Spa Party at Home (small)

An ideal party for Mother’s Day, a bridal shower or to celebrate a special birthday….a Spa Day at home gives you and your friends a chance to spend the day together pampering yourselves.

First, decide on what “treatments” or activities you will have available:

  • Try calling a local nail salon to see if they have 2 manicurists that could come to your party to give manicures and pedicures.  If you can schedule your party for a time when the salon is closed…chances are the technicians would be happy to come make a little extra money!
  • Facial masks are an absolutely must!  Check out this do-it-yourself skin-brightening mask from Martha Stewart.  Made with 3 simple ingredients – it’s sure to leave your skin with a rosy, healthy glow!
  • Call a local massage therapy school to see if they have any students that might want to come over to practice their skills.
  • BYOM – Have your guests bring their own yoga mats and do a group yoga class out on your lawn.

Set up different lounging areas in your home so people can relax throughout the day – place big, bright colored pillows on the floor for people to sit on.  The use of scented candles, black stones, vases with a single bloom of orchids, and pitchers of water will help your guests feel more like they are at a Spa retreat.  Don’t forget to put out some healthy treats – trays of crudites, fresh fruit and fruit smoothies are sure to keep everyone energized.
