Temperatures are going down, and your Jacuzzi is the perfect way to welcome the Winter season!
While some may keep warm by the fireplace, keeping warm in a hot tub is also a great (and fun) solution to the cold. If you’re wondering how to throw a winter Jacuzzi party, we’ve compiled a list of quick tips to help you bring in the holiday cheer:
While this isn’t necessary, it may be fun to introduce a theme to your party. Some common themes include: ugly sweater party (wear your ugliest sweater), holiday costume party (dress up as Santa, an elf, a tree; get creative!), white Christmas (everyone wears white), formal holiday party (from long gowns to suits, get all dressed up), and a masquerade ball (everyone wears a mask along with semi-formal to formal attire).
When people aren’t in the Jacuzzi enjoying the hot tub, have activities ready either right by the hot tub or inside your home. Make s’mores over the fire in the backyard, pin the red nose on Rudolph the reindeer, have a gingerbread house-making competition, setup coloring books or snowflake making supplies, or decorate your own ornaments! There are plenty of holiday activities so your guests are always entertained.
Food & Drink
No Jacuzzi party is complete without food and drink. Hot apple cider and hot chocolate are the staple as far as holiday drinks go. However, feel free to spice things up and get creative with your own drink ideas! With food, the possibilities are nearly endless. Will this be a dessert / snack-only party? Or will you have entrees as well? You could also introduce the idea of a potluck. No matter what you decide, any type of food and drink will be appreciated after a soak in the hot tub.
Having a playlist of music in the background helps to set the holiday mood. Come up with your own music, hire a DJ, or look for playlists online! You can easily find them on services such as Spotify and Pandora. Sing along to classic Christmas songs or dance to modern holiday tunes.
If you have a TV in the backyard or in the living room, these are the perfect spaces to play holiday movies! From It’s A Wonderful Life to Home Alone to Elf, there are a plethora of movies to keep your guests entertained all day and night. We suggest leaving a pile of DVDs from guests to choose from or having your TV setup so people can easily scroll through the options.
With any Jacuzzi / hot tub party, it’s always important to have amenities readily available. Don’t forget to stock up on extra towels and swimsuits just in case guests forget their own. You might also want to consider having extra flip flops, goggles, and spare clothes. If all your guests in the hot tub are open to aromatherapy, have different scented bottles ready.
Last but not least, you’ll need decorations for the big day! Holiday colors can be anything from red and green to blue and white. There’s a lot of freedom when it comes to decorating. Think about mistletoe, wreaths, hanging ornaments, string lights, mini Christmas trees, nutcrackers, stockings, holiday signage and figurines. If you need a little inspiration, a quick Google search will return hundreds of potential holiday decor ideas!
