Girls Night In Spa Party: Food and Drinks

There's no need for a sit-down meal during an at-home spa party, but do plan to serve a variety of finger foods and bite-sized treats.


Keep the food you serve fresh and healthy, and be mindful of any vegetarians or vegans!


Here are a few recipes I love inspired by the menu at Canyon Ranch Miami:

Avocado Tartare
Thai Shrimp Ceviche
Mango Margaritas

A few other options you might want to consider:

Thai Cucumber Peanut Salad
Mini Sandwiches: cucumber, chicken salad, etc.
Almond Sour Cream Dip with Fresh Fruit

You'll want to map out the food service according to your Spa Party plans.

If you intend to begin the day with a bit of light exercise hold off the apps and cocktails for afterwards.

A good time to serve your meal (be it lunch or dinner) is after your cool-down from the exercise and before your spa treatments begin.

This way, once you start the pampering, everyone will be busy indulging in spa treatments.

If you don't want to serve a meal focus on appetizers.

By serving appetizers, food stays separate from beauty products so you can concentrate on getting the most out of each spa treatment without worrying about accidents.

In addition, the ladies can dine lightly on whatever it is that they like.

Of course, drinks should be available throughout the party - after the workout.

Be sure to have plenty of water on hand, too! We like to serve both flat and sparkling and offer our friends lime, lemon and orange slices to add a bit of flavor.
