Got a birthday coming up? Want to do something different for a hen night? Or you just want to get the girls night in.
Treat your friends to a spa day party at home and reward yourselves for all your hard work with a night or day of pampering, that's also a fabulous way to get everyone together!
Pick a day when you know your closest friends are free and send them homemade invitations. Use the following as a checklist to have the best spa day at home and be the perfect host:
1. Transform your home into a spa
Make the living room extra cosy; close the curtains, lower the lighting, light some candles and burn essentials oils in an oil burner. Play soothing music throughout your home to keep the ambiance flowing.
Specify a seating area for friends and lay a towel for each of them. Request that your guests bring their own robe and slippers and lead them to a private room so they can get comfy straight away.
2. Welcome guests with a fresh hot towel
Roll small hand towels and damp them with water then microwave them. Keep them warm and smelling gorgeous by sprinkling them with mint leaves and wrapping in cling film until guests arrive. A mimosa upon arrival always goes down well too!
3. Create your own Manicure & Pedicure station
Set up manicures and pedicures with a bowl of warm soapy water and mini bath bombs. Also have mini pot of creams and lotions around.
4. Relax with a Face Mask
Either have a selection of face mass sheets or better still, encourage everyone to make their own. Leave on for just one minute or relax for a further 10 while you girls catch up.
5. Healthy Snacks
Whip up a light and healthy lunch with some delicious snacks, such as a chicken and avocado salad accompanied by tuna and watermelon skewers with lemon coulis. Ensure there’s a jug of iced lemon water and encourage everyone to keep hydrated.
6. Prepare a parting gift
Inexpensive spa items, such as a bath bomb or bath salts make the perfect spa gift.
