DIY Spa Party: Part 2

This is a continuation from Part 1 where I showed you why I did a spa party with my friends, and the first two stations (sugar scrub and nail polish stations). Here are some more stations for you to consider if you want to do a DIY spa party!

STATION 3: REFRESH YOUR HANDS AND FACE

In the bathroom, I set up a facial routine, and provided headbands, face cloths, cotton balls, and all of the facial supplies. Ladies could also use the scrub they made and use it on their hands (and face!)

  1. Remove makeup
  2. Wash face
  3. Steam treat face (using face cloth and hot water)
  4. Apply face mask
  5. For the face mask, I used a simple mixture of 1 Tbsp bentonite clay and 1 Tbsp water
  6. Let it harden and dry out for 10-15 minutes
  7. Wash off mask with warm water
  8. Apply toner (DIY recipe coming soon!)
  9. Apply moisturizer
  10. Done!

Everyone raved about how smooth their skin felt! When the bentonite clay hardens, it really tightens and stiffens up your face, to the point that it might be a tad painful. But everyone toughed it out, and didn’t regret it!

STATION 4: RECHARGE YOUR SOUL

This station’s purpose was to let the ladies treat their inside (soul) in addition to their outside (soles, hehe). I set up an 8′ table in our study, complete with coloring books, scrapbooking materials, paper, stickers, washi tape, etc. But we were too busy catching up and relaxing, that we forgot about this station! =P

STATION 5: REST THOSE WEARY FEET

Whether or not your job requires you to be on your feet all day, you’re still probably running around chasing after your kids, completing errands, cooking, etc. Anytime you’re not in bed, you’re probably on your feet. So they need lots of TLC!

This station was set up outside because it was bound to get messy. Plus, the weather was in our favor! The brutal 100 degree weather was behind us, and by 7-8pm it was around high 70s. I also liked setting up the string lights to create the mood. =) For this station, all you need is baking soda, epsom salt, and essential oils. I boiled some water and poured it in the bucket. Then I used hose water to cool it down while the ladies poured in the epsom salt, baking soda, and essential oils. The hose water pressure helped mix and dissolve, too. Then all they needed to do was dump it next to the patio, grab a towel, and feel refreshed!

PARTY FAVORS

And of course, you can’t forget the party favors for your guests!

Each guest went home with a handwritten note, a sugar scrub (which they made), a compact mirror, and a toe separator (which they could have used at the nail station).

Overall, the night was so much fun, a great way to connect with the ladies, and refreshing!

Have you ever hosted a spa night/day/event? What kinds of stations did you have?
