If you are thinking of a hosting a spa shower, you can choose to entertain at a spa or salon, or at home. Your spa party at a local salon may include separate appointments for a mani and pedi for each guest, and/or other services, and refreshments and a gift table in a central location. Pampering for the bride-to-be or mommy-to-be AND your guests… it’s girl heaven! Your guests can call the salon to schedule their appointments, per the specifications you work out ahead with the spa.
To hold a spa shower at home, you can provide some basic spa services at “stations” in your home, and guests can wander between the stations and your gathering area stocked with gourmet treats and beverages. A friend could do manicures. Another skin care and makeup. A third hot-stone treatments. Perhaps hire a masseuse to give 10 minute chair massages! The possibilties are… extremely relaxing!
Spa theme parties are very popular for girls and tweens birthday parties. Check out the Spa Princess Cookbook by Barbara Beery for spa-style fun for a girls birthday party. It includes recipes and ideas including flip flop cakes, and Spa princess fondue. At our last spa party, we had teens volunteer to do nails and pedicures. You could also include hair wraps or hair dos (rock-diva sytle) and perhaps a craft like friendship bracelets. Many salons offer birthday diva parties, where the guests get an up-do and a manicure. I don’t know about your daughters, but mine would love one of these!
