Spa Birthday Party
How to set up shop for a soothing spa day party

Make her birthday SPA-cial indeed: set up shop for a spa day party for kids. Relax,
you can host a spa party at home, and save on the hotel bill with our spa party
ideas. If you have a pool, all the better, because you can throw a spa
pool party.

Here's how to throw a memorable spa themed birthday party she'll long remember:

  • Cast a relaxing spell of pink. As kids spa parties go, nothing is more important
    than pink! A pink spa day birthday cake is in order, as is pink party food, such
    as pink meringues, pink parfaits and pink lemonade. Tickle them pink.
    Transform the party space by draping pink sheets on the furniture. Set the
    table with pink peonies, and light pink candles. Everyone looks pretty in pink,
    so head to our favorite kids party supplier: Making Believe:
  • Outfit the girls in spa robes, right
  • Deluxe Spa Party Teddy Bear Favor pack. You'll get 12 sets to give party
    guests, including a lovable plush bear and an organza drawstring bag
    with mesh sponge, two hair clips, cotton puffs, toenail sponges, and a
    comb. Very Spa-cial indeed!
  • Inflatable footbath: ideal for manicure / pedicure parties, the girls will
    love to soak their feet and take home this usual favor.

  • Slip in to something more comfortable. Provide robes, a facial headband,
    slippers or flip flops, so that your spa party patrons will immediately feel
    welcome to your relaxing setting. See our flip flop party ideas. The spa party
    packs, right, will help establish a salon atmosphere for your party.

  • Pamper her like a princess! The Spa Princess Cookbook, left, reveals recipes for
    sensational spa treatments and delicious edible treats for your party.  Soak
    the birthday girl in a milk chocolate milk bath. Show the girls how to scrub
    their feet with Pink Peppermint Foot Glow, or give them a Peachy Keen
    Princess Smoothie to sip. The Spa Princess Cookbook will get you cooking on
    more wonderful ideas for a spa birthday party. It will be invaluable for
    homemade soaps, facials, lotions, sugar scrubs for your next spa-themed

  • Send the girls on a vacation from themselves. Inhale then exfoliate: do so by
    setting a relaxing scene of ocean waves, and inhale the fragrance of essential
    oils, such as vanilla lavender. Inner Splendor Media is proud to present Music
    for Deep Meditation. Help body and mind relax with the Healing Power of
    Ocean Waves & Tibetan Singing Bowls audio, left. Accompany this soothing
    music with a simple yoga lesson.

  • Make it a girls night in! This party is ideal for a sleepover, though you may
    encounter some parental resistance, particularly if they aren't personal
    friends. Broach the topic with parents before arranging an over night party to
    ensure you can accommodate everyone on your daughter's guest list.

Spa birthday invitations
Give her the royal treatment and open your own "Ooh, La-La Day Spa" for an ultra
girlie birthday she'll remember for years to come, and here are some ideas to
accentuate the theme:

  • Appointment card invitations! Dahling you can pamper the pals with an
    appointment card invitation. A kids spa birthday will seem more real with
    business cards and you can order free business cards from VistaPrint, pictured
    left. (You pay only the shipping.) Include the cards in your scrapbook and with
    the thank yous.

  • Salon promotional invitations. Create your own labels for travel size shampoo
    with your beauty salon logo and the invitation information, and hand deliver
    them to your spa party patrons. Want mail invitations? Put your party
    information on bath salt envelopes instead.

  • The Slip-her invitation. Your spa themed sleep-over party for the girls will be
    super cute when you cut your own slipper-shaped invitation from pink
    construction paper. It's easy to add a fuzzy marabou style ribbon and accent
    with a pretty pom-pom. You can also buy the whole gang real slippers, upper
    left, stuff your invitations inside, and invite guests to bring them to the party.
    Now that's ho you slip-her an invitation!

  • Spa Day Party invitations and wording ideas:
  • It's the Grand Opening of the Ooh-la-LA Day Spa!
  • And you're invited to relax with the Birthday Girl, Maddie
  • Reservation: Saturday August 22 at noon
  • The Ooh-La-LA Day Spa is located at: 123 Main Street
  • RSVP: Confirm your appointment at 867.5309

Setting the Scene for a spa day party
The party decor is particularly pink with white for a spa day party. Fill bowls with
floating candles and flowers. For the bathrooms, you can fill the tub and decorate it
with rose petal sprinkles for your spa guests to discover. Here are more ideas for
setting the scene for a spa day party for kids:

  • Create a reception room. As party goers arrive, have each girl check in at the
    "front desk." An adult or teen can man a desk at the entrance. Decorate with
    a vase of pretty flowers, have a phone and an appointment book handy as
    props and the business cards you ordered for free. Set up chairs and a low
    table filled with teen magazines. Ask the party patron whether she has an
    appointment, then offer her a beverage choice and allow her to change into a
    robe behind a curtain or in the bathroom. The girls will feel instantly grown up
    and pampered with this special touch.

  • Decorate your American Doll. You'll find a doll sized Day at the Spa themed set
    on Set it out for decoration.

  • Get an "Ahh" for your spa cake! This simple spa party cake makes use of a
    towel as part of the cake design.

Spa Party Activities
The eyes have it for a spa party. Start by serving a refreshing spa drink with a pretty
parasol skewered with fresh fruit. Then pile on the veggies (cucumbers that is). Kids
will love the cool refreshing cucumber eyes. While you can take the kids for a
professional manicure or pedicure, it's so easy to give the kids a spa day at home by
hiring a manicurist to come to the party. Or do it yourself: all it takes is the proper
tools. Here are more ways to create a spa at home:

  • Make your own spa products: The kids will love making their own spa products
    to take home. Best of all, they double for party favors! Here are some popular
    and easy recipes.

  • Body Glitter: Home made body glitter is easy to make with supplies
    found at the dollar store. You'll need just three things: aloe vera gel
    (found in the summer months as a topical after sun remedy),  dry glitter
    and small plastic containers (all found in the craft section). First, allow
    kids to personalize their container. Glue tiny shells to the lid of the
    plastic container, or provide pretty, glittery stickers. Next, give every kid
    a pick of glitter colors. Have kids pour in a small amount of glitter in
    colors they choose (less than 10% of the size of the container). Follow
    the glitter with a squeeze of aloe vera gel to fill the container. Provide
    everyone with a stirrer to mix their concoction. Remind parents and kids
    not to put body glitter on the face near eyes or mouth. This is body
    glitter appropriate for hands, arms, legs or chest. Simple but kids love
    this one.
  • Want more ideas? Go by the book: Crafty Girl Beauty, Things to
    Make and Do by Jennifer Traig and Julianne Balmain.

  • Make a production of it. The Spa Factory, pictured left, features two essential
    oils and all you need for lip blends, perfume sensations and sugar body scrub
    for three girls. Plus, there's perfume gift bottles, body gift jars, and lip gloss
    gift jars so each girl can take her custom creation home. The set also includes
    recipe cards, spoon whisk, funnel, pipette, and the fold-up, party box with
    storage drawers and carrying handle.

  • Nail it with nail art. Manicure parties for girls are so easy to host. Give the girls
    a mani and a pedi. Start with the pedicure gaining inspiration from "Toe-rrifc: A
    Simple Guide To Creating Healthy And Beautiful Feet," right.  For the manicure,
    try  Klutz nail art, which includes six water-based, non-toxic, peel-off paints
    and easy instructions to paint bumblebees, berries, butterflies, bears, and
    even baseballs on fingers and toes. The peel off manicures are good for the
    little ones, but a real manicure is more fun. Right, the Nail art glitter polish set
    will give the girls just the right amount of sparkle.

  • Important safety reminders about a spa party for kids:

  • Don't be a jet setter. If your spa treatment involves a hot tub, turn off
    the jets for safety. Also, require girls to wear their hair up, do not allow
    anyone to submerge their head, and be sure to supervise the activity

  • Be foot loose and fungus free! Keep pedicure and manicure equipment
    hygienic. Don't allow girls to share nail clips, nail files and other
    equipment. Provide individual bowls for soaking. Give each girl her own
    nail polish.

  • Don't burn out. Candles certainly add a relaxing mood to a spa party,
    but remember never leave candles unattended or near curtains.

Spa party foods
After spa treatment, treat the kids to a spa lunch. Surprise the kids with more frilly
treatment. Wrap a pink boa on each chair. It provides a luxe touch (especially if you
transform the girls from their spa facial headbands to the boas).  

Wondering what to serve at your SPA-go? The SPA Princess Cookbook, left, will
provide all the inspiration you need.

Set out a variety of spa food selections to include menu items on the lighter side,

  • Fancy sandwiches: Cut cream cheese sandwiches with cookie cutters from
    alternating white and white bread. Add a hint of pink to the cream cheese
    with food coloring or mix with strawberry jam. Garnish the plate with
    cucumber slices to give the "cucumber eye" effect, and fresh chocolate dipped

  • Spa snacks:
  • Freeze strawberry yogurt sticks, (this gives new life to an old kid favorite).
  • Transform Nutter Butter cookies into flip flops. See our Flip Flop party ideas.

  • Spa cake: For an easy spa cake, try angel food cake with whipped cream and

  • Spa drink ideas:
  • Wedge of lime on the glass with pink lemonade and a cherry on top.
  • Watermelon triangle in a clear glass with limeade spritzer
  • pink parfait
  • pink milk (grenadine with milk)
  • Use pretty swirly drink straws.

  • Spa Princess Fondue. Any kind of chocolate fondue will do for your spa
    princesses. For dippers, try angel food cake chunks, Madeleine cookies,
    pretzel rods, banana slices, strawberries, marshmallows and vanilla wafers.

Spa party favors
For party favors, let them keep their spa facial headbands or pink spa masks, flip
flops or slippers or if you've splurged, the robes. The pretty organza Ooh-la-La favor
bag is ideal for a spa party, stuff it with these ideas:

  • Manicure pedicure kit:  Create your own manicure pedicure kit for kids to
    include nail polish that sparkles, a pretty nail file, funny toe separators, plus
    travel lotion with your custom information on the label.

  • Pretty potions & lotions. Create your own labels for lip gloss and hand lotions.
    Include pretty soaps and bubble bath salts.

  • Duck out easily. Collect spa rubber duckies, left, three or four for each guest.
