‘Tis the season to be jolly, spa-la-la-la-la! Those may not be the original lyrics to one of the most beloved Christmas songs, but your Christmas party will certainly be original when your hot tub is involved. Anyone can host an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” party, or a “Favorite Things” get together. How many people host an annual Christmas spa-tacular? We have come up with a list of must-do’s for you to wow your guests when you host a hot tub Christmas party!
Jingle Bells, Your Hot Tub Smells
Before you solidify the guest list, and start prepping the snacks, take the time to give your hot tub some cleanly attention. If it has been more than 3-4 months since you’ve drained and refilled your spa, now is a great time to do that. Scrub the tub shell, clean the filters, refill with water, test the water, and balance and treat with necessary chemicals. When hosting a hot tub Christmas party, you want to make sure the water is sparkling like fresh, white snow!
Deck the Spa With Boughs of Holly
Decorating your hot tub may not be something you’ve considered before, but you can rev up the festivity by getting creative. Turn those hot tub lights to green or red. Stop by Energy Center-Manhattan Pool for a bottle of inSPAration® aromatherapy to add to your water. Choose a fragrance from their holiday line, like Candy Cane or Holiday Spice. A few drops later, you’ll be soaking in a tub of cheer. Use a waterproof garland or decorative ribbon to dress the outside of your hot tub. Place fake snow and tinsel around the base of your hot tub, and magically create a winter wonderland. Well placed fake Christmas trees and light up snowflakes hanging above your spa add the right touch to a merry night.
Spa Parties for Hosting, Marshmallows for Toasting
What’s a party without food? Christmas is synonymous with yummy snacks and delectable treats. With options galore, you can really channel a theme to keep your menu jolly. You can go with all green and red foods, like guacamole and red tortilla chips and Christmas tree shaped pizza. Max out on sweets with delightfully refreshing punch, decorated Christmas cookies, and hot chocolate with candy cane stirrers. Whatever you are craving, hosting a hot tub Christmas party will only be complete with a wonderland of holiday treats!
It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas
Nothing sets the mood of a party like a good playlist. Christmas songs are plentiful, and nostalgia reigns supreme when one comes over the speakers. It can be as simple as telling your smart device “play Christmas music”, or you can customize your playlist with your favorite tunes. Whether you prefer “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” or “Winter Wonderland”, your guests will love the familiarity of the lyrics and the warm fuzzies of being immersed by the sights and sounds of Christmas.
Nail down the guest list, considering the number of people who can fit in your hot tub at one time. Plan and prep the festive food. Hang the tinsel, introduce the smells, turn up the tunes and you’ll be on your way to a magical evening with friends and loved ones. At Energy Center-Manhattan Pool, we are ready to service your hot tub or supply you with any chemicals you may need. Stop by for some aromatherapy fragrance, or grilling accessories to get those Christmas treats cooked up nicely. We can’t wait to assist you in hosting your first hot tub Christmas party! It will certainly become a favorite annual tradition. Come Find Your Gathering Place at Energy Center-Manhattan Pool, and Happy Holidays from our homes to yours.
