Holiday Brunch

December 23, 2014


Today we are excited to share some photos of a holiday brunch that we hosted for our staff a couple weeks ago. For this get together we went to Zengo in Santa Monica for delicious Latin-Asian style tapas. Unfortunately, Coco was not feeling well and was unable to attend, but she was there in spirit and we texted her photos throughout the brunch. It was a beautiful, sunny day with good food and great company and lots of laughing. Here are some photos of our brunch…

A visit from Hell’s Kitchen

November 23, 2014

Hell's Kitchen Group PhotoOnce in awhile Willow Spa gets to participate in something that breaks up the normal spa day. When Hell’s Kitchen asked us if they could host a spa day for the winners of one of their competitions, we were more than happy to participate!

Fire Garden ChampagneOn the day of the shooting, we set up the spa during the Hell’s Kitchen cooking competition. Champagne was waiting for the winners.

Waiting for WinnersOnce the spa was ready we all just waited to hear who the winners were going to be.

Treatments Begin

Once the Red Team arrived, our therapists sprung into action. It was a little different giving spa treatments with the cameras and microphones all around, but everyone seemed to have fun.

Champagne Toast

The Red Team toasted to their successful day and were ready to head back to Hell’s Kitchen to prepare for the dinner service. Thank you Hell’s Kitchen for a hosting a spa day at Willow Spa! In case you missed Willow Spa on Hell’s Kitchen, you can click on the full episode below.

Private Shopping Event 2014

November 4, 2014

Hello! It’s been such a long time since we’ve posted on our blog. We have been so consumed with organizing and implementing new ideas, that we didn’t have time to blog for the past couple of months. However, we miss sharing things with you and we’re committing back to it. Sharing some photos from our Private Shopping Event 2014 seemed like a perfect “back from hiatus” post.

Succulent Arrangement

It was a warm Autumn weekend and the perfect backdrop for a Willow Spa party. We had been working hard to introduce some new design ideas and fresh aspects to our event and overall, we’re very happy with how everything turned out. Our table arrangements, above, were inspired by the recent drought resistant succulents.

Raffle TableOur vendors and event partners donated some awesome items to our raffles. Guests were able to earn extra raffle tickets by bringing friends to our event and chose which prize they wanted to try to win. We raffled off over $1600 worth in products and services!

Crostini Bar CollageThis year we decided upon a buffet style DIY Crostini Bar and Soup Bar accompanied by a DIY Smores Bar for Dessert!

Treatment StationsAs always we had free mini treatments for our guests. We took advantage of the warm weather and had a couple of our treatment stations outside.

Sharmyns ArtVendors, such as Sharmyn’s Art above displayed their items so beautifully!


Our guests had the opportunity to browse new products and help support local small businesses.

PSE at NightWe didn’t snap as many photos of our Private Shopping Event as we would have liked. However, we hope that you got a feel of how the event was in case you missed it. For those of you who attended the event, we want to thank you for making our evening a success! We hope you’ll join us again next year!
