This past weekend I hosted a mother/daughter spa party in celebration of Mother's Day. We celebrated the weekend before because I figured it would be hard to get everyone together on Mother's Day. The party went great! It started with a basket of flip flops asking to change their shoes and a sign welcoming them to "Salon De Dennis". After everyone came inside, we offered them a beverage. I made sure that we had refreshing beverages like teas, lemonades, water, etc. I had made personalized water bottles from name badge templates and setup magazines and appetizers while they waited for everyone to arrive.
TIP: I labeled everything so as I was trying to entertain guests, they could see what each drink and dip was so they didn't have to track me down.
My aunt is amazing, she always has a ton of ideas for things. She went to the bath and body works outlet and found a bunch of deals on their products. Then the ladies gave her bags and bows for the goodie bags. Then we did a raffle and let them pick a goodie bag from the basket.
I had candles lit, spa music playing, rose petals in the pedicure tubs, fountains around the living room and an artifcial orchid on the table with the food. I think that the mood that was set played a big part in how relaxed everyone was. I can't take all the credit though. The girls that helped with the treatments were AMAZING! I of course, didn't have a lot of time for a treatment myself, so my husband got me a day at the spa (which I have never done) for my birthday that is coming up in a few weeks - I am so exicted!
