Hosting a Spa party at Home {My Temple Spa Party}

Here in the UK there is great company called Temple Spa  who make some lush products - that are really great for the skin! The best thing about the company is that their representative comes to your house and you have a mini facial as you learn about the products. Its a great chance to get the girls together and have a girly pamper!

When I was organising my party I knew that the food had to be important and look great. In fitting with the night I also made sure it was all super healthy! Here's how it looked:

The Spread!


The Food:
 Kale Crisps 
Bake kale in an oven with some S&P and a little olive oil until crisp
Baked Tortilla Chips and Dip
Cut Tortillas into triangles and put under a grill for a few minutes until golden and then turn and do the same. Serve with guacamole and salsa
Salmon on Rye
Cut some Rye bread into small squares, top with extra light soft cheese, some smoked salmon, a squeeze of lemon and some black pepper
Mushroom Pate and Rosemary Biscuits
not going to lie - i bought these
Hummus and Crudites
I bought the hummus and cut up celery, peppers and carrots to dunk 
Chocolate strawberries
melt some dark chocolate and dunk the strawberries in. Chill and then serve 
Fruit Kebabs
Cocktail stick with cubes of fruit and grapes - easy! 

The food was a hit and the fact that it was guilt free really helped!  I decorated the table simply with fresh flowers and little tags saying what each item was. I think its really easy to go overboard with these sorts of things so I tried not to make to much and kept it to little nibbles. Once I came in from work I only had an hour or so to get ready so it had to be quick! 


Chocolate strawberries - everyone's favourite

The Drinks:
Prosecco - Our favourite

Raspberry Fizz
Prosecco with a fresh raspberry
Ginger Lemonade 
Sparkling water with freshly squeezed lemon juice and slices of fresh ginger 
Spa Water 
jug filled with water, ice, lemon, lime and cucumber

Ginger Lemonade ans a bit of the spa water!

And there you have it, my ideas for throwing a Spa party. You could always do your own and do face masks, pedicures and manicure.... Although its much easier when someone comes and does it for you!

  2. Now that's a great idea. A spa party! How nice! Certainly something to look forward to. That just shows that there are a lot more things you can get out of spas beside the usual 'me-time' relaxations and stuff. You can also do it with the presence of your friends and in the comforts of your own home. Nice!
