Spa parties are a growing trend for teenagers and younger girls who want to feel pampered and beautiful while relaxing with their friends. There are even day spas opening up for girls as young as three! ShindigZ has party supplies, and of course Party TipZ, to help you host a spa party for the birthday girl (or boy) to unwind and celebrate.
The first step of planning your party is to set a guest list and send out invitations. You’ll want to send out invitations about a month in advance and expect about a quarter to come back regrets. If you need an accurate headcount for your party, be sure to include how people should RSVP and a date by which you’d like their response.
For invitations, write your party details on a paper tags and attach them to face masks or mini bottles of nail polish and deliver them by hand. For a slight Hollywood twist (Give them the star treatment!) create Ticket to the Stars Invitations with your party details and send them through the mail. The black ticket invitations include your custom wording printed on them in gold or silver ink. Tell guests that the invitation is their ticket for a day at the spa. Our Garden Party Ensemble also features a coordinating invitation with a pretty floral design and space for you to write your party details.
Welcome guests to your party with a Daisy Personalized Banner. The custom vinyl banner is printed with your personalized wording on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and is available in several sizes to suit your needs. A custom banner makes a great entrance piece to your spa party and a great keepsake if you have each guest sign the banner before they leave.
Keep the decorations for your party simple and relaxing. Create swags, drapes, and curtains using our gossamer material in your party colors. For this party, pale pinks, pastel greens, and soft blues would work wonderfully. Of course, white is also a classic spa color. There are tons of ways you can use gossamer to cover and transform your whole party space. Check out our Gossamer TipZ for easy how-tos.
Placing balloon bunches in the corners of the party space is a way to add some softness and volume to your decorations, but you definitely won’t want to go overboard with balloons for this theme. Create bunches of balloons in odd numbers of your party colors and anchor them with coordinating curling ribbon to balloon weights. For a more feminine touch, use pearl ribbon instead of curling ribbon.
Set a gorgeous and relaxing scene for your spa party using a photo mural. We have several photo mural designs that would work well for this party, including a sunset photo mural, a desert island photo mural, and an Asian garden photo mural. The Mediterranean View Painted Mural pictured above would make your guests feel like they were at a spa on a Mediterranean terrace!
To decorate your party tables, start out by covering them with pink opalescence table covers. Add fresh flowers or a honeycomb floral centerpiece. Use contrasting gossamer material to create chair bows on each guest’s chair.
For party tableware, our Garden Party Tableware Ensemble is a lovely choice. You can also choose coordinating colors of plastic tableware. Create cutlery bundles by wrapping a custom imprinted napkin around the coordinating plastic cutlery and securing the bundle with a sequin snap bracelet or pearl balloon ribbon.
We carry tons of tableware options and catering supplies, such as cake cutters, serving trays, party cups of all sorts, and even lipstick candles for your birthday cake!
For a party favor that does double duty as a table decoration, place a Shanghai Votive Candle personalized with your party details and a logo at each place setting. These candles will create a lovely glow at the spa party and guests can use them for relaxing at home too! Besides, what’s a spa without candles. We have other beautiful custom candle designs for you to incorporate into your other spa party decorations too! The Pacific Square Candle is another great option.
For party activities, you could actually take guests to a spa for a manicure or a facial, but a more economic option is to turn your home into a spa. Many drug stores and groceries sell face masks for $1 a pouch. Each pouch is enough for about two faces. Have girls relax for some girl talk or listening to music while their face masks go to work. Cut up cucumbers for their eyes too. English cucumbers are preferred by spas because they naturally hold more moisture due to the English climate.
Give each girl an at-home manicure and/or pedicure. While they wait, the girls can relax some more and sip water with lemon or cucumber in it or sparkling grape juice out of personalized glassware. The custom glassware also makes a great spa party favor. If you have more guests than time, the guests might also enjoy giving each other manicures. Give each girl one of our mini glitter nail polish bottles as a keepsake.
We carry a Nail Polish Piñata that would be tons of fun for the beginning of the party festivities. The girls can take a crack at the piñata to let go of tension! Don’t forget candy filler too.
Send each guest home with a bundle of spa party favors so they can continue to pamper themselves at home on stressful days. Fill our Purse with Cosmetic Set, which is trimmed in pretty pink marabou, with spa favors like nail polish, daisy swirl lip gloss, face masks, eye masks, hair clips, and a pink daisy mirror. The birthday girl might also enjoy our Sassy Sandals for wearing after she paints her nails!
