Do something special and make your invitations stand out!

With your written invitations, give your girls a headband to wear for facials or flips to wear after pedicures.

This video tutorial shows you how to easily make a floral backdrop for your party.

Flowers will make any spa party more serene.

For affordable and beautiful flowers, check out your local farmers market, Trader Joes or warehouse store.

  1. Manicures

What is a spa party without manicures?

It’s is not just about the nails, we want soft hands too!

I made hand scrub out of the pink Dawn soap and sugar.

Here are a few more for you to try from My Frugal Adventures!

Be sure you have an array of lots of colors for all your friends to choose from.

You can even use mini nail polishes as a party gift.

  1. Pedicures

No spa birthday party for 12 year olds is complete without pedicures!

It’s not just about toes though, you want to make sure your feet are nice and smooth and soft.

Use this at home recipe for super soft feet or this wonderful foot scrub!

  1. Facials

You can’t have a spa party without facials.

Check out these 5 DIY masks I found.   They are super easy to make and you probably have everything you need in your kitchen already, depending on which one you make, or make them all!

Another one of my absolute favorites is this coffee scrub! If you have coffee, you can make it!

But be sure to do your facials before your manicures, or you will be doing those nails over.

  1. Lotions

Before your party, head over to one of the many dollar stores around.  They carry an excellent array of good smelling lotions.

Bath & Body Works or Amazon always has great deals on mini lotions.

Check them out to see if they have any deals.

You can even use these as a party favor after the sleepover.

  1. Food

It doesn’t get more spa-like than cucumber slices and hummus.

Another cool spa-themed snack idea is Cotton Ball Confections.

Here you can learn how to make Cotton Ball Cookies and Cotton Ball Cupcakes.

  1. Party Favors

You can put together a cute little bag with a nail file, a small bottle of polish, a mini lotion and maybe even a sample of the hand scrub (you can put them in small mason jars, or mini metal containers).

You can either give them before the party as your guests arrive or after.

If you hand them out as your besties arrive, you can all trade polish!

Or, whip up a big batch of these cute Minions bath scrub during the party and let everyone take some home!

Perk up your summer beauty routine with this adorable DIY Minion Scrub inspired by the movie. This hydrating scrub is cheap to make and makes a great gift!

With the hot weather upon us and fresh strawberries in my farmer's market, I thought I would try making a sparkling strawberry smoothie recipe.

The recipe is for a sugar-free smoothie, but you can also make it with sugar or natural sweeteners.
