ROBE INVITES - Another cute and fun idea is to cut out white cardstock in the shape of a robe. Decorate it to look like a luxurious terry robe and then add your party information on the inside.

SPA MASK INVITES - You can also create invitations shaped like spa masks for a creative and unique invite. Other items you may want to attach to your invitations include spa masks, mud masks or other spa treatments.

- (Name) needed some rest and relaxation…

- You’re invited to the (Last name) Luxury Spa to celebrate a pampered day of relaxation

- Show up ready to be pampered and relaxed

If you need some spa party ideas for decorations, you want to keep in mind that the main thing you want to create with your décor is a relaxing environment. When guests arrive at the party, they should feel like they’ve stepped into a relaxing spa.

  • It’s nice to start out with a table at the entrance that is stacked with soft, fluffy robes for guests to wear during the party. Make sure you have somewhere when guests can change into robes.

  • To help set the mood, it’s a great idea to have plenty of candles around the room. Choose a color palette for the party, using soft relaxing colors, such as soft pink, soft blues or pale greens. You can purchase candles in these colors to distribute throughout the room.

  • Make sure you have plenty of comfortable chairs set up for guests where they can relax.

  • It’s also nice to set up some fake trees around the room and some white lights to add to the relaxing atmosphere.

  • Fresh flowers can help dress up your party area as well. Choose flowers that fit your color scheme and flowers that smell great as well.

  • If you have a small water fountain, the sound of flowing water is relaxing and the fountain will add to your décor as well.

  • For your food tables, go with simple, elegant tablecloths that go with the rest of the color scheme.

  • You can choose paper goods that match your color scheme too. Use beautiful serving plates to add elegance.

  • Greenery and candles on the tables can make your tables look elegant and help carry through the theme.

    POOL AND/OR HOT TUB - If you have a pool or hot tub, you can also spend some time relaxing in the pool or hot tub.

Green frosting can be used to create cucumber slices over the ideas. You can use red frosting to create the lips and brown frosting to create some eyebrows on the face.

    CUPCAKE CAKE - Another fun idea is to create a cupcake cake, which makes it easy for everyone to eat. Decorate the cupcakes with icing in various pale, beautiful colors. You can add cute cupcake picks to your cupcakes that go along with your theme.
