‘Tis the season to be jolly, and nothing makes us jollier than keeping warm in a bubbling hot tub during a cold winter evening. So we’ve created the ultimate guide to throwing a festive Christmas
hot tub party to help you host the best and most unique Christmas party around!

Here’s what you’ll need to do.

First, Make Sure Your Hot Tub is Squeaky Clean

Your hot tub water should be glistening like fresh snow for your Christmas party. Before inviting guests over:

Transform Your Hot Tub into a Winter Wonderland With Christmas Decorations

Festively decorate your hot tub and the area around it to get your guests in the Christmas spirit when you:

  • Get your hot tub looking merry by setting your ThermoSpas® hot tub LED lighting to green or red inside and finish it off with waterproof Christmas lights.
  • Transform your hot tub into one of the best presents of the year by wrapping a long waterproof ribbon around it and adoring it with waterproof bows.
  • Add wintery details by hanging plastic snowflakes and lights in the trees around your hot tub, place reindeer décor and inflatable snowman around your backyard, and mark the path to
    your hot tub with cardboard candy cane pathway markers.

Celebrate With Christmas Music & Entertainment

Kindle the Christmas spirit with some merry-themed media, from Christmas music to holiday flicks:

  • Plug in your audio source, pull up our playlist of the best classic Christmas party songs and turn on your ThermoSpas®  hot tub with a deluxe sound system. You can find the playlist at the bottom of this post.
  • Play classic Christmas movies on your hot tub cinema, such as Home Alone, A Christmas Carol or  It’s a Wonderful Life. Just make sure to put the movies on mute so that they don’t conflict with the music.
  • Make your own holly, jolly music with a karaoke machine your guests can use when they aren’t in your hot tub.

Serve Festive Food and Drinks

Provide some easy-to-eat finger food for people to munch on when they’re out of the hot tub:

  • Serve sweets, like green and red Christmas M&Ms, candy canes and gingerbread cookies.
  • Balance your pallet with savory treats like red and green tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa, and put your favorite nuts in a bowl for your friends to enjoy.
  • Keep your guests toasty when they’re outside of the hot tub with hot drinks such as hot chocolate with marshmallows, peppermint tea.

Plan Out Your Christmas Hot Tub Party Guest List

Like with any hot tub party, the amount of people you invite is important to think about:

  • Set up tables and chairs outside of the hot tub so that people who can’t fit in the spa have somewhere to relax.
  • Throw a more intimate party, make sure you’re limiting the number of guests to the number of people who can comfortably fit in your hot tub.
  • Remind people to bring towels, slippers, a warm robe and a swimsuit. It’s likely that someone will forget to bring these essentials, so make sure to have extra.

Throwing a Christmas party with a hot tub is a blast. We hope this guide helps you to host a Christmas party that gets everyone in the holiday spirit.
