Are you looking to have a fun day with “the girls” or create a special party for a birthday or some other occasion to get together?   Why not create a spa day at home!    Where I work, we recently had the opportunity to create a table setting for WAMSO (The MN Orchestra Volunteer Association) and their fundraising event called Settings of Note.   Designers and others create table settings around a theme of their choice and then patrons and guests bid on the table settings.

My office did the Spa Retreat theme and let me tell you, it was a huge hit!   From what I could tell, our table out of nearly 20, had the highest bids!   Everyone was commenting on how it was such a great idea and that it was so out of the “norm” for typical table top ideas of “English garden” or “Outdoor picnic” etc.

We did a simple “meal” of sushi and cucumber water, had lily votives set around the table top, simple yet beautiful orchids as a centerpiece and all in soothing colors of pink and green and creamy white.

But some of the most popular things were the gift sets that were put together.    In these cute little wicker baskets, each guest received a spa robe from Cypress Bathrobes, a Ms Pedicure Foot SpAhh set, EcoTools Body Butter, Karen Neuburger Spa Socks and Lisa Hoffman Beauty Spa Facial Packette!   It was the ultimate beauty set!

I can’t thank enough Lisa Hoffman Beauty, EcoTools, Ms Pedicure, Karen Neuburger and Cypress Bathrobes for their wonderful donations and helping to make the fundraising event a huge success!  

Now maybe when my group of girlfriends get together to celebrate a birthday, we’ll do something fun like this, too!
