Party Tips:

1. Create your own spa! Check out our beauty recipe section with all sorts of facial, skin and hair treatment recipes to make you and your friends feel like you've had a makeover. Trade turns giving each other manicures and pedicures for the full royal treatment.

2. Pretend you're on the beach and put together a KUDOS Beach Pail for dessert! A pail full of sweet goodies will make any Spring Break party a blast!

3. Encourage your guests to come in clothes they would wear to the beach: swimsuits, shorts, tank tops or what have you. If everyone is dressed for the occasion, you'll really feel like you're at a spring break getaway! Have beach towels out for your friends to sit on for some extra atmosphere.
