Spa Party For Girls
I hosted a spa party for my girls several years ago. They loved it!
It was fun to make cute flip flop invitations, serve refreshing snacks, and to see the kids enjoying face masks, mani-pedis, and relaxation in the lovely spa.
1. Choose Your Theme Colors
Colors are important for creating the right atmosphere for your spa party. Close your eyes and picture your favorite spa…
Which colors say “welcome to a time relaxation and fun”? I have four color combo ideas for you.
- Refreshing green and white with a splash of purple
- Energetic hot pink and tropical blue
- Sweet peach and mint green
- Gorgeous gold and teal
2. Send Creative Spa Party Invitations
Make simple and sweet spa party invitations.
1. Flip Flop Invitations DIY
Cute flip flop invitations get the guests excited about the coming party.
These spa party invitations are also easy to make.
Use real flip flops or cut out the shape from card stock, cut and glue on the strap, and decorate with paper flowers.
2. Eye Mask Invitations DIY
Another fun spa party invitation: Eye Mask Invitation. Use real ones or cut up the shape from card stock and punch holes to insert a ribbon.
3. Set the Mood With Pretty Decorations
In the spa the atmosphere is very important. Create the right feeling with these spa party decoration ideas.
1. Honeycombs and Lanterns
Honeycombs and lanterns are cute, inexpensive, and go really well with a spa theme. Place them above the gift or treat table.
Green plants and flowers are a must for a spa party. They give the pretty and refreshing look to your spa. Real flowers add a nice touch but artificial flowers can look awesome too like these daisies from DollarTree.
3. Wooden Letters
Spell the word SPA with wooden letters and surround it with flowers. You can buy wooden letters from stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael’s.
Give your spa a name and display it at the door and above the check in counter. Make a few signs to point to the activity stations.
Candles, whether you choose to use real or led ones, create a beautiful, calming feeling.
4. Pampering Spa Party Activities
Your sweet daughter will cherish these awesome memories made at this party!
1. Yoga For Kids
Bring out the yoga mats it’s time to do yoga! The girls will have a great time trying out these easy yoga for kids moves with a fun instructor, Alissa Kepas.
Buy inexpensive yoga mats for everyone from Walmart or Dollar Tree. Or ask the kids to bring their own.
Since you are in the spa, how about doing hand treatments with a sugar or salt scrub! Who would not love to have silky soft hands. And as an added bonus paint the nails.
Have several nail polish and nail art options available. These cute bows, butterflies, flowers and hearts will make the nails extra pretty. The kids will love them.
Basic Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup of olive or coconut oil
- 5 – 7 drop of essential oil (optional, make sure it is safe for kids)
Basic Salt Scrub
- 1 cup of coarse salt
- 1/2 cup of olive or coconut oil
- 5 – 7 drops of essential oil (optional, make sure it is safe for kids)
I like Eden’s Garden essential oils. They have several options for kids too.
Get little buckets for the girls to soak their feet in. Fill the buckets with warm water and add some bubbles and maybe even rose petals.
Place a towel (a set of white 16 x 27 cotton salon towels) and a magazine on the chairs.
- Girls World
- New Moon Girls
- Discovery Girls
Decorate the chairs with flowers and ribbon or use theme colored chair covers.
Buy inexpensive foam toe separators from amazon or dollar store.
Let the girls enjoy a warm cozy foot bath and maybe even a foot massage and then take a moment to paint the nails.
4. Face Mask For Kids
You’ll love to hear the giggles as the girls apply their face masks.
Make a simple Avocado Face Mask for Kids and put in little jars with a pretty label or ribbon.
- 1 avocado mashed
- 4 tsp whole milk yogurt
- 2 tsp honey
Apply to face with fingers and leave in for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Check for allergies before using any products on kids. This recipe makes enough for 3-4 kids.
Provide everyone with a washcloth (roll up and tie with a ribbon) and a headband to keep the hair from going to the mask. You’ll also need tabletop vanity mirrors or just simply use a big one on the wall or in the bathroom.
5. Relaxation For Kids
After all these beauty treatments it is time for relaxation. Diffuse a soothing essential oil such as Calm ‘Em Down. A calming synergy blend for a beautiful relaxing moment.
Place pillows or folded towels on the yoga mats.
Play calming music like.
Just breathe and relax… inhale through the nose, exhale through nose…
