Have You Ever Been to a Spa Party?

Recently on my television show, we set the scene for a spa party.  Where most parties are about turning up the energy, a spa party is all about dialing it down.  It’s a really great idea for a bridal shower, a teen party, or a girlfriends’ get-together.  A spa party could be entirely a do-it-yourself event with homemade treatments that you and your guests perform on each other, or you could hire professionals to service your guests.  At our party, Susan Ciminelli, owner of the Susan Ciminelli Day Spa and Salon in Manhattan,  brought a team to pamper us and to teach us about skin care.  Sara Carey, the editor-in-chief of Everyday Food, shared a delicious shrimp Caesar salad recipe from our new cookbook, Everyday Food: Light.  And my makeup artist, Daisy Schwartzberg demonstrated how to apply a full makeup routine in under five minutes!  To find out what makeup she used, click here.  To find out more about how to throw a spa party, click here.
