There’s no point in having a hot tub if you’re not going to use it. One great way to enjoy your hot tub to the fullest is to invite some good friends to share in the fun and relaxation. Let’s take a look at the 5 essential steps for throwing an incredible hot tub party.
Prepare for Everything
If there is one thing you can’t afford to have happen at a hot tub party, it’s having the hot tub break or malfunction. Before throwing a party, make sure to check all parts of your hot tub, ensure it’s in working condition, and gather supplies. You should keep extra towels on hand, a first aid kit, and other things you commonly use.
Check the Temperature
Prior to when your guests arrive, prepare the hot tub for the optimal temperature. Depending on your model, this could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. As a rule of thumb, it takes about half an hour to increase the temperature by one degree. The fastest way to heat it up is to leave the cover on.
Plan for Other Activities
While the hot tub may be the centerpiece of the party, you can’t realistically expect guests to stay in the hot tub for hours (plus, everyone won’t fit at one time). You need to plan other activities to keep people entertained and occupied. Set up a snack bar, dance floor, and yard games.
Set the Mood
As soon as guests arrive, you want to set the atmosphere. Build a music playlist, decorate accordingly, and think about things like seating arrangements and lighting.
Offer a Changing Room
When people are done with the hot tub, they may feel self-conscious about hanging out in their swimwear. To make sure everyone has a good time, offer a space for people to change into their clothing.
