You finally got your spouse on board to get the hot tub of your dreams!  You’re in luck, all of the 2019 hot tub floor models are on sale! Get yours delivered before the New Year! Now you will start getting asked “When is the party?” If you don’t want to disappoint your friends and family this holiday season here are some tips on how to throw the best holiday hot tub party.


The greatest parties have a theme, some of our favorites for the holidays are a White Elephant, Minute to Win It, or a simple wine and cheese party. Once you have picked your theme you want to make sure you make the best of it by creating the mood of the party to match the theme. Every hot tub party doesn’t have to be extravagant so you can get as crazy as you want with food, decorations, and gifts for your guests.

Here are some tips we think will create the best hot tub party your guests will remember for a long time.

Any party food you decide to serve, serve on a skewer! Since people will be in and out of the hot tub the best party food should be easy to eat in bite size pieces on a stick! Think of the possibilities!


Pigs in a blanket

Charcuterie Boards

Chocolate Covered Bananas

Caprese Salad Wreath

Cake pops

Also serve any beverages in plastic glasses to avoid any accidents in the hot tub! (you can find some amazing recipes on Valley’s Pinterest page!)

Outdoor lighting is a must for any hot tub party and during the holidays the more the merrier (See what we did there?!). Add to the sconce and perimeter lighting on your new BestLife Hot Tub and include some patio string lights, fairy lights, or even add some extra Christmas lights and string them around your party area. (of course keeping all electric away from the hot tub.)

Games! White Elephant parties are great when you want a laugh, have everyone bring a bathtub or shower related item as a theme! The Minute to Win It parties are a blast if your crew isn’t into gift giving, here are some great games to play with your guests that we have compiled on our Pinterest boards. Your guests will break the ice and close the conversation gap to keep the party going!

The best parties are all about all 5 senses. You taste the food, see the outdoor lights, feel the jets and the hot water so what about the smell? Add a spa aroma to your water before your guests arrive to add that little extra party pop to make your guests be amazed at your attention to detail! Spa aromas come in all different types and scents, pick up either crystals or liquids to add to the water but always follow the directions for the amount to use! Valley Pool & Spa currently carries holiday aromas to add a little extra flare to your party. Try Holiday Cider, Candy Cane, Sugar Cookie, or Pumpkin Pie in your hot tub this winter!

Lastly… music! You don’t want awkward silence during your party so turn on your favorite Christmas playlist to go with the theme of the party. Don’t turn it up too loud that you can’t talk to each other but as something to fill the silence if everyone isn’t super chatty.

Keep these five tips in mind during any hot tub party and your guests will be amazed at your creativity and party planning expertise! Throw them for a loop by giving a small token of your friendship either at the beginning of the party or when they leave like a personalized towel, After spa lotion, Spa fragrance samples to use in their bathtub, a rubber duck, or slippers. Again, go as crazy as you want and no matter what, your guests will feel appreciated!
