Hosting A Party To Break In Your New Spa

Irene Montgomery

If you had just had an outdoor spa installed, you will soon be enjoying the relaxation of bubbling waters as it soothes your muscles. Many people like retreating to a spa at the end of a long day to unwind. If you wish to show off your new addition, consider hosting a small spa party to share your new luxury equipment with friends. Here are a few ideas you can incorporate into this get-together so all who attend have a great time.

Consider The Time

To get the full effect of the spa, have your friends come to your home at a time when no one has work looming in the near future. An evening would work best as your guests will be able to feel the warmth of the water when temperatures cool off after the sun goes down. Consider starting the party when it is still light out so your friends get to witness the differences in how a spa feels as twilight and nighttime set in.

Enjoy Some Relaxation

Have your guests slip into the tub at their leisure. Play some light music on a nearby compact disc player to help set the mood. Purchase some floating dishes and place them on the outer edge of the spa near each seat so guests can nibble on finger foods you bring out while they are enjoying the water. Make sure the snacks you provide do not crumble so they do not dirty your spa water as a result. Slices of cheese and grapes or berries work well as they would float if accidentally dropped into the water. 

Place a few lanterns around the spa to increase the aura of relaxation. Another idea is to light some citronella tiki torches or candles nearby. This will double as an insect repellent to help keep the area pleasing for your guests.

Provide Extra Comfort

Set out several thick terry cloth towels on benches or chairs near your spa. You can also provide some bathrobes if desired. Purchase a set of flip-flops or slippers for each participant so they do not need to walk around barefoot when exiting the spa. Consider constructing a fire pit with cinder blocks in your back yard in the days before your party. Place some chairs around this pit and light a fire after guests leave the spa so they have an easy way to warm up and dry off after getting out of the water.

Adding Value to My Home

My husband and I are considering selling our small brick home in the near future. While we’ve completed some work on this house recently, we know we will need to do a few more things before we put it on the market. For instance, we need to replace some of the flooring, paint some of the walls, and replace some of the siding on the front porch. In addition, we may want to add a pool to the backyard. Because we live in the hot southern United States, many of our neighbors have pools. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of pools to install in a home you may sell in the near future. Enjoy!
