    Examining Some Current Trends in Spa Treatments

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Going to the spa is a healthy way to relax, de-stress, and rejuvenate your body and mind. Interestingly, the treatments that day spas are using to achieve this have changed over the years. Read on to learn more about the newest trends spa treatments.

    In ancient Rome, few things were more relaxing and luxurious than a long bath. Today, cutting-edge spas around the country are embracing the art of bathing. Dipping into warm water and enjoying an indulgent soak is a guaranteed way to promote relaxation and health.

    Healthy Hotels
    Going to a day spa for a few hours and then returning home is good for some occasions. But the current trend in spa treatments is to stay at a healthy hotel with an integrated spa. Staying at a hotel that offers a fitness center, a healthy restaurant, and a comfortable room will enhance your relaxation and healing process.

    All-Natural Treatments
    All-natural products have been popular for many years, but recently the trend has been evolving to new heights. Natural river rock massages, milk and honey scrubs, mineral salt massages, cocoa scrubs, and olive oil massages are just a few of the things you should look for the next time you visit a spa.

    Holistic Health
    The latest spa treatments begin with a full evaluation of the client’s health needs. Some spas will even swab the client’s inner cheeks to perform a chromosomal analysis before prescribing a spa treatment. Other spas will perform an initial consultation to find out what type of facial will be best for the client’s skin type and stress level.

    Inspiration for Your Winter Wedding!

    Last updated 10 months ago

    A winter wedding is a wonderful way to commemorate your love for your significant other. And while many people love to incorporate winter wedding motifs such as pinecones, snowflakes, and holiday colors, there are a number of other, more dazzling ways to embrace the season. For winter wedding décor ideas, continue reading.

    Color and Flowers
    To avoid having an overly holiday-oriented wedding, go easy on the red and green. Silver and white add winter-themed elegance without being overpowering. Use satin ribbons, crystal accents, and phalaenopsis orchids for a beautiful winter ambience at your wedding. White hydrangas and ranunculuses are other full flowers that will look great.

    Impress your guests at your wedding by choosing a creative cake design. Red and green ribbon is pretty, but if you want something more unique select a white, classic-style cake and have it topped with silver powder and a white sugar ribbon.

    Invitations and Favors
    Winter wedding receptions are typically held inside an elegant ballroom, rather than outdoors. To send out a formal invitation, use heavy cardstock printed with dark font and hand calligraphy. Use silver envelopes to incorporate a winter motif. For a more original favor than cookies or truffles, try chocolate-coated cranberries or roasted nuts.

    Impress your guests with ice-carved vases filled with white branches and hanging crystals. Use white table linens to top the tables, and frosted glassware for a classy touch. Surround the centerpiece with candles.

    Music and Cocktails
    A classical pianist is enjoyable, but if you want to add a touch that guests will be talking about for years to come, hire an a capella quartet to sing a collection of jazz and pop songs, or a cellist that can play classical tunes to set the mood at your wedding.

    At Turf Valley of central Maryland we have years of experience catering to winter weddings. We have some of the most exceptional wedding venues in Maryland, which can seat anywhere between 50 and 650 guests. Call us at (410) 465-1500 to learn more, and visit our website to see our wedding packages and venues.
