Spagirl Retreats by Always Fabulous Events

Follow the Spagirl on Facebook

A few years ago, we added spa parties to our list of pre-wedding party services. Then we began to receive requests for non-wedding-related spa parties... and so it grew. We now provide home spa retreats for any occasion... or no occasion at all.

You can choose a "Pamper Yourself Party" or upgrade to include professional massage therapists, nail technicians, and/or aestheticians to do facials. You provide the location and we will come to you.

Some basic guidelines to hosting a fabulous Spagirl Retreat:

  • Clear enough space for everyone to relax comfortably. You may need to move a few pieces of furniture to create an open, uncluttered room. Create spa stations as needed.

  • Declare a No Phone Zone. Turn off all cell phones and also the ringer on the home land line.

  • Embrace the power of dimmer switches and candlelight. Avoid harsh bright lighting in the spa treatment areas.

  • Play soothing music. Piano instrumentals are very calming.

  • Let guests know what to expect in advance so they are dressed appropriately and comfortably.

  • Provide a light spa menu, such as:

    • pitchers of water with slices of lemon, lime, or cucumber

    • pitchers of light juice or iced tea (not heavy or sugary)

    • hot tea

    • fresh fruit

    • vegetables and dip

    • cheese and crackers

    • tea sandwiches or muffins
We also offer customized invitations for your Spa Retreat, like this one:
