Chocolate Spa Party

This ladies only party was very fun!

MENU:

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE CAKE
MOCHA CUPCAKES


MINI CHEESECAKES, BROWNIE BOTTOM CHEESECAKE & MINT & PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE COOKIES

HOT CHOCOLATE TOPPING BAR

DESSERT TABLE

NAPKINS
I stamped white napkins with brown ink hot chocolate stamps.

TOWELS AND FAVORS
I rolled one wash cloth with one hand towel and tied them with a ribbon for each guest and put them in a basket. I also put all of the party favors in a basket.

SPA GIRL FAVORS
I had emery boards, cuticle nail care sticks, and facial cleansing pads for each guest and wanted to display them nicely. I found the clip art girl and printed her head to make these spa girl favors. I added a different saying about chocolate to each girl.

HOMEMADE CARDS
I stamped cards for each guest.

TAKE HOME PLATE
I sent left over desserts home with each guest on these take home plates.


SPA TABLE
We started the night with chocolate facial masks, followed by chocolate sugar scrubs for our hands, dipping our hands in a paraffin bath, a couple of ladies used the chocolate sugar scrub for pedicures, and ended up with polishing our nails. I had nice meditation/spa music on in the background and the evening was very nice and soothing!

CHOCOLATE FACIAL MASK RECIPE
Several people have asked me for this recipe, so I thought I'd post it. It makes enough for 4-6 ladies.

This decadent mask is an excellent moisturizer – leaving your skin baby soft. To start indulging, you will need:
• 1/3 cup cocoa powder
• 1/4 cup of honey
• 2 tablespoons of heavy cream (sour cream will work as well)
• 3 teaspoons of oatmeal powder (grind oatmeal very finely--I used a coffee grinder, but make sure it's very fine or the mask will turn out gritty)
Mix all ingredients together and smooth onto face. Relax for 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

  3. Hi, Sandy, sorry, I don't remember where I found the clip art girl. I probably just typed in "spa girl clip art." Good luck, if you still need to find it!
