A spa party has become a very popular trend these days. It gives girls a chance to enjoy being pampered. From young children to teens, who doesn’t enjoy a spa party?! A children’s spa party needn’t be an expensive nor an exhausting exercise in precision. You can actually relieve yourself of some of the party pressure by putting the onus on your offspring to get involved in helping to arrange their own entertainment and chances are they will love it! I hope you enjoy these tips for how to host a spa party for kids.
Remember, a spa party for kids can be as lavish or as simple as you like. It can a simple affair for your child and her best friend or it can be a fancy soiree that everyone will always remember. Or it can be some where in between. There is lots of fun to be had under all three versions of a children’s spa party!
5 Tips For How To Host A Spa Party For Kids
Select A Setting For The Kids Spa Party
First you have to pick the party venue. You can decided to go with a local spa party company, just put a term like “girl spa birthday party places near me” into a search engine. That option is a lot more expensive, of course, because they take all the work out it! Or you can throw a spa party at home for kids. That will be way cheaper but more work to plan and host a spa party. However, the work can be kind of fun if you get into the spirit of it!
Holding a party outdoors can often be far more relaxing for all involved. Rowdy noise levels and unruly behavior are far more tolerable in the open air and guests have the room they need to run riot while the adults needn’t concern themselves with mess and spillages.
Backyard tea parties are super fun! And doing spa treatments while you relax in lounge chairs is perfect for the spa party for kids theme.

Spa Party Decoration Ideas
Your little ones will relish the responsibility of making party decoration and enjoy the excitement of the build-up to the big bash.
One way of harnessing this enthusiasm is by encouraging your child to make bunting to adorn the yard. You can cut triangle shapes out of old pieces of colorful cloth, attach them to a long length of rope and string them up in the trees. Or fold colorful doilies in half and attach to string.
One area can be decorated as a tea party area with tea cups and flowery table clothes. Pretty fresh flowers are a nice touch too.
Another area can be decorated with spa care packages. Stuff gift bags with DIY spa treatments and colorful tissue paper and set one out at each chair with a rolled towel.
If daylight dwindles, make the most of it and fill the trees with fairy lights too!
Adopt a Theme For Your Kids Spa Party
Whether you settle on a rainbow, garden tea party, unicorn, or fairy princess theme, this adds an extra element of fun. It is a great way to show your daughter that you notice the things she likes and they are important to you. Fancy dress is a fun theme too and is always open to interpretation whilst inspiring imaginative and memorable outfits.
Party invitations can be made in keeping with the chosen theme – so cut them into the shape of a nail polish bottle or fold them like the fluttering wings of a butterfly.
Kids Spa Party Food

In keeping with the spa party theme, stick with small snacks that are light and cute! Try finger sandwiches, pinwheel wrap slices, tea cookies and mini donuts. Serve lemonade, herbal fruit teas, or fruit infused waters.
You can adapt the food served can to reflect a theme with simple snacks taking on a new twist with just a little bit of ingenuity.
