Kids Spa Parties: Ideas on Preparing for the Big Day

So you have decided to have a kids spa party at home, and your daughter's birthday is fast approaching. This blog will share some ideas to prepare your home for a wonderful party, packed with favors, candy, food, and pretty decorations.
So, one thing you will want to do a few days before is start preparing the food for the party. There is an excellent website with all kinds of little easy things to make, with recipes and instructions. You can link to the page by clicking here. The cowboy caviar cups (which are actually black beans, not fish eggs) in little edible tortilla chip cups. They also have adorable little hot chocolate cookie cups, which are made with pillsbury sugar cookie dough. They are so cute! For the main course, you can try to make the chicken wild rice lettuce wraps, which take less than 20 minutes to prepare, except for the rice cooking part.

They also have recipes for low sugar banana nut scones, which are great if you already have lots of chocolate and candy on hand for the girls to snack on. And the candy bar pretzel bites look absolutely delicious! Check out their site, and you are sure to find lots of great recipe ideas.

A couple of weeks before the party is the time to start getting the favors and everything else ready. Birthday Express has a kids spa party section, with favors and other items to add to your party, along with some decorations. While we decorate the living room or "spa room," as it is transformed into, the kitchen and dining areas are up to you. Ribbons and pretty colored table cloths, along with pretty centerpieces will add to the ambiance of the spa party. And of course, all of the food and desserts you have made or purchased will also be decorating the table.

For the mom who has very little time, the cakes and cupcakes can all be made by your local bakery, and we recommend Sugar Sugar Cupcakes in Perth Amboy, for their adorable spa party themed cupcakes.

Your kids spa party will be a lot of fun, especially once we arrive and start providing the services to the girls. But the more favors and food you have, the more fun it will be. The easiest party food for the kids spa party (and also the most popular and least likely to make a big mess) is of course pizza. Catered or delivered pasta is also inexpensive and popular, although little girls favorite is almost always pizza. If you like making healthy food, or want to have healthy food at your party, it may take a little bit more effort. There are many restaurants in New Jersey and New York City that will prepare healthy full meals and deliver them. Here is the link to a New York Times article presenting several locations that offer full healthy meal delivery. Whether you will have a catered meal or cook yourself if definitely something to decide on in advance, and considering the fact that parties always have lots of candy, cake, cupcakes, and chocolate, a healthy meal alternative that can be delivered might well be preferred.

In addition to the preparations covered thus far, you also need to make sure that the room where the kids spa party will be is spacious and has been pretty much cleared, so that all of the decorations and supplies we bring are able to be arranged easily and quickly. We need a bit of space in which to set up for the facials and massages, and we also need a small table to do the manicures on. You can drape the windows with pretty fabric and ribbons, both for privacy and to add to the ambiance of the room. Streamers and ribbons on the chairs are also very pretty.
Then, when the kids spa party gets started, it will look and feel like a real grown-up spa in a kids fun party kind of way. Whatever decorations or food you choose to provide to your guests, we will take care of the entertainment. For more information, or to book your party, please click here.
