Spa Birthday Party Tips

Tip #1 for a Spa Party: Pick a Theme

A theme for a party isn’t necessary but is such a festive part of a party and can help you choose decorations, music, etc. When choosing a theme, include favorite characters, activities, and hobbies that the birthday star is sure to enjoy.

The following themes are our favorite for a party at the spa:

Tip #3 for a Spa Party: Relax and Have Fun!

Party planning can be stressful, especially if we become obsessed with creating the “perfect” party experience for our little ones. When planning a children’s event, keep in mind to be flexible and allow the children to make the party their own, explore, be silly, and have fun. Check out Nailed and Lashed to learn more about memorable spa experiences in our kid-friendly salon!

Food and beverages

Throwing a party, celebrating, and getting pampered takes a lot of energy! Keeping tasty snacks at your disposal is key to enjoying the birthday party all the way through. As your pedicures and manicures are drying, have the birthday kid’s favorite snacks on hand. Fresh fruit and bubbly drinks are our go-to snacks for a spa celebration.

More ideas for food at a spa party includes finger sandwiches, vegetables and dip, salads, yogurt,  and a charcuterie board. Healthy, simple snacks are perfect for an event that lasts just a couple of hours. 

Don’t forget dessert: Go all out and have some decadent desserts that match the theme! It is, after all, a party!
