Tips for a Great Holiday Hot Tub Party
The holiday season is a busy time filled with parties, dinners, celebrations, family gatherings, and festive fun. Unfortunately, by the end of the holiday season many of the dinners and parties start to blur together as a similar mix of friends, food and music. This year, why not throw a hot tub holiday party to remember? Or invite guests to enjoy your hot tub after an evening a holiday dinner? With a hot tub, your entertaining options are endless! Escape the cold either inside or outside with a relaxing soak in your hot tub as a fantastic ending to any party or to ring in the New Year. In this blog post, we will provide lots of helpful tips for using your hot tub to its full potential this holiday season.
When planning your upcoming holiday party, remember that it will take time to organize, plan, set-up and send out invites for the event. We recommend starting the planning process early to ensure your loved ones will be able to attend and share in the festive fun. As you plan your party, it’s important to consider how many guests you will invite. If you invite a small number of people, you can spend most of the time relaxing in the hot tub. However, if you invite many people, you will need alternative activities such as games or entertainment. Perhaps combine your hot tub party with an evening dinner, a board games night or holiday-themed karaoke.
In preparing for the party, make sure that your hot tub will be clean and ready in time for the event. Start by draining the hot tub and cleaning it well to disinfect the interior of the tub. Next, re-fill the hot tub with fresh water, set your desired temperature and add chemicals to balance the water chemistry and pH. This is also a great opportunity to decorate your home or backyard for the event, prepare a drink and food corner and organize any catering. Consider light snacks such as hors d’oeuvres, finger foods or fan favourites like chips and dip. A great addition to any holiday party is also a custom, festive cocktail such as mulled wine, a spiced winter mojito, an apple sidecar or a cranberry cosmo. Depending on who will be attending the event, you can always make a non-alcoholic mocktail or choose hot chocolate or apple cider for guests who do not drink alcohol.
