Holidays are fast approaching — we quite all know that 2017 is indeed a stressful year making you feel a little worn out. Even if they book you through a spa software for booking appointments, time simply isn’t your friend. It’s quite the hassle not to be able to stretch out and detox.
Have you been trying to plan a bonding with your family or friends but something always comes up and it doesn’t actually happened? Why don’t you try to throw a party and turn your house into a spa with these following smart ideas that can help you save your time and money?
Crafty Movie Popcorn Station
We all love movies and we’re pretty sure that a few will say no to it. You can install a mini movie theater in your house, but don’t forget to put a popcorn station with lots of amazing popcorn mixes. Now you can enjoy a little movie time while waiting for your other friends to arrive.
You can enjoy this movie station either in your living room or on your backyard by simply spreading out those blankets and cushions. If you want it indoors, it is easier to use a screen projector and make it a permanent feature of your living room decor or bedroom! But if you’re thinking of an outdoor movie station, try searching for a painter’s canvas available at any hardware store and hang it on your house walls or in between trees.
Steam Sauna Bath Station
Steam baths are so relaxing and it really helps us to unwind after a toxic day. A room of hot steam with a pleasant, relaxing aroma from different essences will surely take away all your stresses away and help pamper you up. But don’t worry, it’s possible to install a steam sauna bath station for your SPA-rty because you can purchase a portable steam sauna of your own! And if you have a spacious basement, you can make it a steam sauna bathroom! Enjoy leisure time with your family or close friends whenever you like it.
Another SPA-rty must-have is a massage station! All you have to do is create a calm, peaceful room with soft music and air-filled essence. A dim room with a skilled masseuse is the best thing we can have to start up that SPA-rty. If you have a large bathroom consider decorating an area for this specific purpose.
You can also seek advice or rather make an appointment to a professional spa therapist for consultation and improvement of your condition. While it’s hard to replicate the relaxing experience at home, having a massage station in your home can help you cut costs instead of going to spas.
Face Mask Station
After a good and nice facial massage from the massage station, getting a facial mask will complement the overall relaxation and unwinding process.
In this station, offer a facial mask that is gentle yet nourishing will help brighten unbalanced complexions and will surely help sensitive and oily faces. Pamper yourselves with this SPA-rty idea by preparing different types of facial masks that will promote restoration of a natural glow, detoxify the skin, tighten pores and heal blemishes.
Manicure & Pedicure Station
Your SPA-rty experience will not be completed without a manicure and pedicure. Your tired hands and feet needs a massage and a new nail polish! Pamper your fingers and toes by soaking them with warm water then give them a scrub and scrape off those hard and stubborn skin. You might as well apply some moisturizers and soothe them well.
Yogurt Bar and Tea Station
Always remember that a SPA-rty is a party and a party always offer goodies! Yogurt and tea are the best things we can complement our healthy and refreshing party. The yogurt bar and tea station can be the last stop before we call it a day. Have a yogurt bar that you can customize, add some mixed berry on it to give some extra flavors and a prepared tea for a calming effect.
Photo Booth Station
An after-spa-rty groupie can’t be missed! Have a photo booth station and keep these special moments and preserve those smiles to make the party unforgettable.
Props are must-haves for every photo booth. It will help your guests to get in the fun-photo-mode and break some ice. And since it’s a spa theme party, make some props that are unique like a facial mask, nail polish, cucumbers, and other stuff that are related to spas.
