Feeling spooky? So are we! Whether you’re thinking of going trick-or-treating, throwing a big party, or just relaxing at home with the family, Halloween is always a fun time. And this year, why not incorporate your hot tub in the festivities as well? Here are 4 fun ways to dress up your hot tub this Halloween.
Set the Right Tone
This is probably the easiest thing you can do to create a fun vibe, especially if your hot tub is equipped with color-selectable lighting. Choose your color depending on your desired theme. Red lighting is effective for setting a mysterious mood and goes great with blood-themed costumes. Green can also be a good choice for a zombie or radioactive apocalypse. Or you can just go with pumpkin orange for a classic Halloween feel. And don’t forget – even if you can’t change the colors in your hot tub, you can always buy colored light bulbs to flood the whole area with whatever color you want!
Make It Pop!
Remember when you went trick-or-treating as a kid? The best houses always had front yards teeming with Halloween props and surprises waiting to leap out at you. So why not treat your guests to the same level of scare on their way to the hot tub? Classic Halloween decorations are always hard to beat. But here’s a tip: don’t put props in the hot tub! Your filter will thank you later.
Put Everyone on Edge
Okay, yes: spider webs count as props. But since spiders are just the absolute worst, they get their own category. You can buy specialty cobwebs from Halloween suppliers everywhere, or you can just make your own by pulling apart cotton balls. If your hot tub is in a gazebo, under an overhanging roof, or even has an umbrella, set up a big ugly spider hanging down over your guests’ heads!
Add a Layer of Mystery
Nothing says spooky quite like fog. Dry ice works great, but it can be tricky to keep the fog effect going. You can always buy a fog machine, but if you’re feeling handy you can also make one for a fraction of the price!
And remember, before hosting any hot tub party (scary or not!), always give your hot tub a good cleaning and test the water to make sure it’s in balance. And afterwards, don’t forget to test and adjust your sanitizer levels, too! As always, if you need any help or advice, contact us right away.
