Chattanooga, TN-GA February 08, 2008 - Excitement is in the air as Spa La Petite staff members get ready for an early afternoon birthday party.

Soon there will be ten 9 year old enthusiastic girls bursting through the front door, anxious for their special day of pampering. This is not like any other ordinary birthday party--this is an Ooh Spa La party.

Spa La Petite's signature spa party for girls 12 years and younger. The girls will enjoy diva updo's, fab chocolate facials, mini mani's, petite pedi's and mini makeover's followed by a trip to cake corner for eats, treats and presents.

Once the girls arrive, the air is filled with oohs and aahs at the pink, purple and lime green walls. There is pure childish excitement as the girls change into fluffy pink and purple robes and their very own Spa La Petite take home t-shirt.

"This is the best day ever" and "I never want to leave", are phrases most commonly spoken by the girls. "This is what we hear everytime we host a party," Lori (a stylist for Spa La Petite) explains. "Most girls this age have never experienced spa services before and to them, this is really special."

After the girls have enjoyed a spalicious birthday party they gather together for a group photo. Each girl will receive a group photo with frame, two spa gifts in a Spa La Petite backpack to take home.

As the girls give hugs and thank you's to the staff members, Lori again remarks, "This is what its all about, making a difference in young girls lives and making their birthdays one that they will never forget."

The owner's nine year old daughter was the inspiration for opening Spa La Petite. I remember her tellingme, "Mommy, you need to have something fun for girls to do for their birthday," the owner explains. "Once we started plannig, everything just sort of fell into place." The business plans on expanding in the near future to a colorful 3000 square foot facility. Future parties are also in the works. The "Hollywod Glam Party" will be the next big hit and party goers will enjoy dreesing up as rock stars or princessesand riding away in a limo for dinner at a nearby restaurant.

Spa La Petite recently opened in July of 2007. They currently offer six themed birthday parties, SLP packages, and individual spa and salon services. They are located right off of Shallowford road in Chattanooga, TN.
