Hosting the Ultimate Christmas Hot Tub Celebration
As the festive season rolls around, why not turn up the heat on your holiday celebrations by hosting a Christmas hot tub party? Combining the magic of the season with the relaxing warmth of a hot tub creates an unforgettable experience for your guests. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the essential steps to throw the ultimate Christmas hot tub celebration that will leave everyone talking well into the New Year.
Set the tone for the party by giving a warm welcome. Start by sending out creative invitations that set the tone for your Christmas hot tub party. Use holiday-themed designs or incorporate images of a hot tub to get everyone excited. Clearly communicate the dress code, emphasizing the need for swimsuits and warm winter attire. Another idea would be to ask guests to wear holiday related items like Santa hats, antlers, or other festive gear. Encourage your guests to bring their favorite Christmas dishes and holiday spirit.
To make it extra special, add to the festive atmosphere and transform your backyard into a winter wonderland. Use string lights, garlands, and outdoor decorations to create a magical ambiance. If your hot tub allows, change the hot tub lights to red or green. Even consider adding some waterproof decorations to the hot tub itself.
Ensure your hot tub is in top condition before the party. Check the water temperature and make any necessary adjustments to ensure it’s warm and inviting. Provide cozy towels and robes for your guests to wrap themselves in after enjoying the hot tub. If you have an outdoor heater, strategically place it to keep the surrounding area warm.
Create a menu of festive refreshments or have a potluck to keep everyone in good spirits. Consider serving holiday-themed desserts, warm beverages like apple cider or hot cocoa, and finger foods that are easy to enjoy in and around the hot tub.
Set the mood with a carefully curated playlist that blends holiday classics with upbeat tunes. Consider the preferences of your guests and create a mix that adds to the festive ambiance without overwhelming the conversation. Place speakers strategically around the hot tub area to ensure everyone can enjoy the music. If your hot tub has the option, create a playlist on your phone and connect it to your spa using Bluetooth. This will ensure that you don’t have to be on your phone and can enjoy the night without distractions.

Games and Activities
Keep the party lively with some entertaining games and activities. Consider incorporating classic party games like holiday trivia or a “Christmas movie quote” guessing game. If space allows, set up a designated area for board games or a photo booth with festive props. If you don’t have the space, you can also take a festive photo in your hot tub with all your guests.
Above all else, make sure you put safety first. Ensure the safety of your guests by providing clear guidelines for hot tub use. Make sure everyone is aware of the maximum capacity and establish rules for entering and exiting the hot tub safely. Have a designated supervisor if children are present and keep a first aid kit handy just in case.
