Expect the unexpected ‘cuz it’s…

Probably my favorite aspect of every party is the treat and favor table. I love them…I might even be obsessed with them. For this party, my treat table didn’t have one treat on it…none! WHO KNEW? This is my No-Treats Treat Table.

Cupcakes are a must for every treat table right? But I promised this table would have no actual treats…these cuties are bath fizzes. I LOVE them…and frankly kids love bath fizzes probably more than adults. My girls do anyway.

Fluffy white hand towels were a must. Every spa goer needs a fresh towel to dry off their hands and faces. Pink satin ribbon with glittery polka dots were the perfect compliment to the bright white towels.

Along with hand towels, each girl needed a washcloth and a bucket for soaking hands for manicures. These little galvanized buckets with gingham handles were perfect for this job.

While we were doing some shopping a few weeks ago, I saw the most beautiful gourmet soaps. They were wrapped in pretty paper and tied with a bow. When I started the non-treat treat table, I knew I wanted to add some pretty soaps. However, we were working with a budget, so I had to be more creative that shopping at a high end soap shop. The solution was very budget friendly and turned out sweet. These were yummy smelling boxes of soap that I bought for less than $1 each in a large multi-pack. Then I wrapped them with 12 x 12 sheets of paper cut to size and wrapped like a gift. Each soap was finished with a simple white ribbon.

The last treat on the Beauty bar were mani/pedi kits for each of the girls.

For this Spa Party we took everyday items and turned them into fabulous with just a few extra touches. Most of the party supplies came from national chain stores.

Shopping Guide:

  • Fluffy White Hand Towels: Sam’s Club ($16.88/12 or $1.41 each) + Michael’s Pink & White Polka Dot Ribbon ($3.99)
  • White Wash Cloths: Target ($3.50/8 or $.43 each) + Michael’s Pink & White Polka Dot Paper (5/$1 or $.20/sheet)
  • Metal Pails: Target Dollar Spot ($1 each)

  • Manicure Sets: Michael’s ($1 each)
  • Dial Grapeseed Oil & Lemongrass Soap: Target (10/$4.49  or $.49 each) + Michael’s Polka Dot Paper (5/$1 or $.20 each)

We had lots of homemade fun to keep them more than busy for 2 hours! We made glittery hand lotion, lip gloss, brown sugar body scrub and decorated flip flops! It was a jam packed party and the girls went home with a lot of fun beauty products custom created by them!

Well, that’s my spin on a beauty bar. Don’t forget to pamper yourself every now and again!
