Halloween is always a great excuse to throw a party! This year, Why not do something different and make it a bubbling hot tub Halloween party? There are so many awesome ways to incorporate your hot tub into your spooky evening! Try this potion that for a splendidly spooky Halloween …
The color scheme and Halloween theme
When deciding what theme you want to use, think about how spooky you want your party to be. Will there be small children there? If so, take a more subtle approach to Halloween with pumpkins, hay bales, and corn stalks. Stick with colors that mimic the fall trees, like orange, brown, and yellow. If your party will be older kids to adults and you want a spooky theme filled with witches, ghosts and headless horsemen, consider going with traditional Halloween colors. Red, purple, black and green are all fun colors to incorporate in your food and decor!
Prepare your hot tub or spa
Make your hot tub look spooky and fun! Tape black tablecloths around it to give it the appearance of a witches cauldron. If your hot tub or spa has built-in lights, turn them on and coordinate them with your color theme. Red will give the water a bloody appearance and a floating plastic hand may give it just the touch you were looking for. Green may look more like a witches concoction that’s bubbling about in its cauldron. Whatever you decide will look great … just don’t go with yellow … that’s never a good decision. (The reason is likely obvious. 😉 )
What party is complete without food? (“None,” is the correct answer.) Ask your guests to bring their best Halloween-inspired foods. Encourage them to be creative! Make it a contest. Whoever has the creepiest food wins a prize – maybe a coupon to have the hot tub all to themselves for 5 minutes? This will ensure that they not only bring food, but that the spread looks amazing, too!
The small details always take a party to the next level. Here are some extra details that will make your already amazing party even more so:
- Incorporate fun and spooky music to set the mood.
- Have something fun to drink. Whether it be hot apple cider or a tried and true punch recipe, place plastic rats and spiders in it to give it a spooky touch.
- Towels, towels, and more towels!
- Encourage your guest to dress up!
- Use candles, glow sticks, or torches to make sure you have plenty of spooky lights!
No matter, the theme, food or color scheme, having a hot tub at your Halloween party will be a success every time!
