Hot tubs are often sold as somewhere to be relaxed, have some alone time and focus on wellness. And, while all that is definitely true, that’s not all you can do with a hot tub if you’re lucky enough to have one at home. A hot tub can be an incredibly social space - and it’s also a great excuse to throw a fantastic summer party. Here are our tips on how to be the hot tub host with the most in summer 2023.
Create an atmosphere with some lighting
There is nothing that sets the tone for a party quite as much as the lighting so take the time to consider what kind of lighting you want to have. Obviously, it will be important for people to be able to see properly as they are getting in and out of the hot tub, for safety reasons. However, bright, glaring lights can really ruin a relaxed and sociable mood. So, look at the options for creating that all important atmosphere, whether that’s solar powered flares or fairy lights that you can drape around the space to create atmosphere and also shed some light on the key areas.
Don’t forget the music
Another key component in atmosphere is music. What kind of tracks are you going to use to get everyone into the party spirit? It’s a great idea to create some playlists so that you don’t have to spend time worrying about the music during the party itself. Think about the kind of music you’d like people to arrive at the party to as well as the tunes that can help to wind the party down at the end of the night. Create some themed playlists so that your speakers never have to go quiet.
Be the host with the most food and drink
Any party needs to have food and drink for the guests, so plan your cocktail lists and menus well in advance. Do you want to have the kind of food that people can just graze on? A BBQ? Or are you going to hand out plates and serve a full on meal? When it comes to drinks, cocktails, prosecco and beer are always popular and you could even create a cocktail specifically for your event. Remember that alcohol and hot water can leave people feeling dehydrated so it will be important to make sure you have plenty of water and soft drinks available too.
Make your party distinctive
If you’re having a hot tub at your party then you’re already a step ahead in terms of experience. However, there are lots of other ways you can make your party stand out for the right reasons too. For example, think about a theme for the party - something classic like togas or themed around your favourite Netflix show. Plan some games and contests - the hot tub is a great place to host these - and think about whether you’d like to give people something to go home with too.
