Want to have a fun and relaxing day with a few friends? If yes, have a spa party. You can plan a relaxing spa party on a budget. All you need is about 5 to 7 good friends, food, some easy to find pampering items, relaxation music, a few candles and you are all set!
To begin, invite 5 or more friends to your pampering party, not too many as it won’t be relaxing anymore. But seriously, with smaller groups you won’t need as much supplies to prepare, not as much chatter, and it is more relaxing. Next, have each friend bring a healthy snack/foods to munch on. Nothing like food and good conversation with friends.
Here are some food suggestions:
Fruit Bowl– Add some strawberries, blueberries, fresh pineapples, cantaloupe, honey dew melon, kiwi, grapes, and mandarin orange slices. You can also prepare a simple fruit dip for dipping.
Salads– Healthy toss salad with a few vinegarette dressing options or whatever you like. Also, Chicken or tuna salad with mini croisssants or both, pasta salad is always good with diced veggies.
Assorted Cheese and Cracker tray- Yummy Cheddar cheese, Pepper Jack, Mozzarella, Swiss, and Colby to name a few. You can choose an assortment of your favorite crackers or pita chips.
Beverages: Detox waters with Cucumber, mint, & lemon in a glass or plastic beverage dispenser. Other varieties such as Orange and Kiwi, Raspberry & Mint, Blueberry and Lime, Strawberry & lemon. Also, you can have assorted herbal teas, Mimosa, or whatever you like!
Each person will need a foot tub or foot spa, a hand towel, wash cloth. If your guest brings a foot spa, just make sure you have an area with ample electrical outlets to plug them in. Other items would include a bag of Herbal Body Blessings’ Herbal Foot Soak or whatever foot soaking product you prefer to relax your feet in. Also facial mask product of your choice enough for your guests or they can bring their own to share. Or you can make your own…recipe shown below. Or you can have your guests use a facial steam bag.
