PAMPERING BEAUTY TREATMENTS

Of course, pampering beauty treatments are the heart and soul of this party. So here are a few ideas for age-appropriate treatments to delight the guests. 

1. MANICURE STATION

Set up a manicure station where the girls can have mini manicures. I’d suggest it is a good idea for someone to be on hand to paint the nails of tween girls. This could be a parent or an old sibling, or you could hire a manicurist as a special treat. 

If you are going for a DIY manicure station, the things you will need include the following:

  • Nail polish remover
  • Cuticle sticks
  • Cuticle oil
  • Hand cream
  • Nail polish – either raid your own or buy some in age-appropriate colours
  • A nail dryer lamp – particularly for gel nail polish
Mylee Essentials Gel Nail Polish LED Lamp Kit

Mylee has some really brilliant nail polish kits and a gel nail polish drying lamp that I can highly recommend (as I have one). Buying one of the kits is a cost-effective way to create a manicure station, or you could even give it as a birthday gift and then use it for the party.

Do remember things like checking with parents that tween girls are allowed to have their nails done, if they are ok with gel polish being used and if there are any no-go colours (I’d suggest sticking to neutrals or fun sparkles anyway!).

Oh, and don’t forget there is no point doing anything other than a very neutral manicure if the girls have to go to school the next day or so after the party!!

And one last thought. If nail painting is a no-no (this could be the case with younger tweens), you could use nail stickers instead. These cute nail stickers are just the ticket.

Pedicures are super fun

2. FOOT SPA/PEDICURE STATION

Foot spas are lovely and fun. You don’t need to buy a foot spa. You can easily create a DIY at-home foot spa with the following:

  • A big bowl of warm water (a plastic bowl is a good idea for younger kids)
  • Bubble bath or bath bomb
  • A couple of towels
  • A simple pedicure kit, like a pumice, scrub brush and foot cream (I love this Le Mini Macaron 3-in-1 pedicure kit)

However, if you want to buy a foot spa, this Sensio Foot Spa is rather brilliant. It has settings for heat and bubbles (bubbles are bound to delight tween girls) and a pedicure set. The best thing about it? Buy it for the pamper party, and then keep it for yourself!!

If you want to go the extra mile, you could offer some simple reflexology-style foot massages, but I think this will elicit more giggles than relaxation from tween girls! 

3. FACE MASKS

Face masks are hugely popular with tweens and teens, and a pamper party wouldn’t be a pamper party without them!!

Teens tend to favour sheet masks (here’s the selection of sheet masks that Boots has) with lots of enticingly active-sounding ingredients. Sheet masks are mess-free, so that’s an added bonus. 

However, where is the fun in a face mask that doesn’t involve getting messy?! So you might want to invest in the kind of masks that get smeared on.

You might even fancy making a DIY face mask recipe or getting all the ingredients and getting the kids to make their own as part of the pamper party fun

Whichever route you decide to go down, do make sure to check with parents for allergies ahead of the party. 

Easy homemade face mask recipe

These are the ingredients for a simple homemade moisturising face mask to make enough for four face masks:

  • 1 x medium-sized avocado 
  • 2 x tablespoons of runny honey
  • 2 x tablespoons of olive oil 

Remove the stone from the avocado, scoop the contents into a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the honey and olive oil and stir until the mixture is smooth. 

Provide thin slices of cucumber to place over their eyes for the full spa-treatment look!

4. HAIR BRAIDING AND STYLING

Hair braiding is a great activity to include in your party planning. There are loads of really great hair braiding tutorials on TikTok.

I’ve also found this really useful YouTube video that walks you through how to do five different kinds of hair braids:

  • Double-dutch braids
  • French plait
  • Fishtail braids
  • French rope braids
  • Double French braids
YouTube video

If you are good with hair, you could offer to do the braiding yourself or set up the tutorial and let the girls try the braiding. 

If braids aren’t your daughter’s thing, how about setting up a hair styling station with curling tongs, hair straighteners and accessories for the girls to experiment with different hairstyles. 

5. FACE PAINTING AND TEMPORARY TATTOOS 

Face painting and tattooing aren’t strictly speaking spa treatments. However, younger tweens might like to have their faces painted or enjoy sticking on temporary tattoos as part of their pampering experience. 

These Fun Time party tattoos are really lovely. If you fancy providing temporary tattoos for cooler teens, Inked by Dani has a really good selection. 

PAMPER PARTY ACTIVITIES

If you want to make the party more interactive than the guests sitting around being pampered, you could include some activities to keep them occupied. 

These are some activities that would sync well with a pamper party for girls:

  1. Lip balm making
  2. Bath bomb making
  3. Create a selfie booth with accessories.
  4. Pop on a tween or teen movie. The Parent Trap or The Princess Diaries are cult classics for tweens, and Clueless comes to mind for teens.
  5. Choose some party games from this big list of teen party games.
  6. Provide a relaxing craft activity, like friendship bracelets or rock painting (this neon rock painting kit is fab).
  7. Print out some fun party games for the in-between moments and when the girls are relaxing. I’ve created a set of six cute party games for teen girls.

PAMPER PARTY DECOR

It is pretty easy to create a pamper party vibe with stuff you already have around your home, such as cushions and throws.

But if you’d like to create a really fabulous spa-party vibe, how about using some of the following ideas:

  1. String fairy lights around the room (How gorgeous are these pastel cotton ball fairy lights?!)
  2. Set up essential oil diffusers (this diffuser is fab)
  3. Honeycomb paper party decorations in pastel shades are very chic
  4. Create a balloon arch across the room where the party is being held
  5. Invest in some pretty party wear for serving food and drink (see below for more ideas on this)

PAMPER PARTY FOOD AND DRINK

No party is complete without fun food and drink. I think the best idea for creating a refreshment station for the party girls is to put together a really fabulous snack charcuterie board, choc full of mouthwatering goodies. 

I’ve put together a guide to creating visually appealing snack charcuterie boards with a big list of ideas for sweet and savoury board ideas.

As far as sweet treats go, pretty pastel macarons, iced cupcakes, and colourful candy always go down well, no matter the age of the girls.

I absolutely love this grazing table set from Party Pieces. 

Grazing Table Treat Stand and Accessories

This grazing table set is perfect for creating a beautiful refreshment area at a pampering party. There's a rose gold grazing board, napkins, confetti and a cute 'please help yourself' sign.

Party Pieces

Pizza is always a failsafe option if you don’t fancy creating a charcuterie board. Cook a batch, slice and leave it out for the girls to grab when they feel peckish. 

You can have some real fun creating a signature drink for the party.

DRINKS IDEAS FOR GIRLS’ PAMPER PARTY

Here are some ideas for delicious girls’ pamper party drinks:

  1. Mocktail – fruity and colourful, add slices of fruit or cocktail sparklers for added wow
  2. Big kilner-style jar with tap filled with chilled water infused with fresh mint and cucumber (or you could use a jug, but ideally a clear one for full effect)
  3. Healthy smoothies are great. Ensure they aren’t too thick if you want them to be thirst-quenching.
  4. Sparkling water with elderflower cordial is deliciously refreshing. Float some edible flowers in it for a nice touch. 
  5. Exotic fruit juice combinations – you can usually find them readymade in the supermarket. 
  6. Hot chocolate with marshmallows and squirty cream – this is a great option for a winter pamper party

PAMPER PARTY KIT / PARTY FAVOURS

A lovely idea for making all the girls feel special is to give them each a pamper party kit when they arrive at the party. This is also really useful if it will be a slumber party.

Alternatively, you could assemble a pamper party bag or choose one of these items to give a party favour. 

Here are some ideas to include in a pamper party kit or use for girls’ party bags:

  • Headband or scrunchie: For keeping hair off the face during treatments
  • Spa-style slippers and/or robes: For an authentic spa feel
  • Satin eye mask: For an extra touch of relaxation and calming
  • Aromatherapy pulse point rollerballs: Great for calming and soothing.
  • Lip balm: To soothe and hydrate, what tween or teen doesn’t love lip balm?!
  • Face mist: Lovely and refreshing, especially after a face mask
  • Pamper party T-shirt: Just a little fun memento 
  • Cosy socks: As an alternative to spa slippers to pad around in
  • Nail polish: Use for the mini manicure, then get to take the polish home
  • Bath bomb: To carry on the spa experience at home after the party
