My calendar is almost full for October but I am always looking for new party ideas. I LOVE themed home parties. It makes things easy for the hostess and I am able to help her keep things simple. Many of my guests get into a theme party to varying degrees and the time of year.
How about a Football Wives party?
This one could be tough for me because I am football fanatic but what a great way to pass the time for those that are not into football (or hockey). Our Spirit Collection also gives you a chance to shop for the men in your life so that they can sport their favorite team’s colors.
Chocolate Lovers Party – Serve chocolate goodies. Guests bring their favorite chocolate recipe. A fun chocolate quiz is given – “How well do your guests know their chocolate?” I mean who doesn’t love chocolate…
Fundraiser Party – October is Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Why not support
your favorite cause at the same time guests are doing their shopping? I offer a 25% donation to organizations looking to raise funds. Encourage guests to bring their gently used bags to be donated to a local shelter and then give them a a discount on their new purchase. A win-win for everyone.
Halloween Party – Do you like Halloween? Challenge your guests to come in costume and earn a gift. Goodie bags given to all who bring a friend. Serve apple cider,pumpkin pie or candy apples.
Brunch – Nights too busy? Busy moms would love a moment in between dropping the kids off and the next errand to grab a bagel or donuts, and a fresh cup of coffee or tea. This is can be done on along the same lines as an Open House but for a shorter period of time. It solves so many concerns – no time, what to serve & keep things short and sweet. A great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning.
Men’s Only Party – Invite the men for an afternoon of football, pizza, soda (or beer) and Thirty-One. Set up a display and let them shop for Christmas presents during halftime, tell them that when they place a $35 (or whatever) order, you’ll wrap the gift for them.
What are some of YOUR favorite October party themes? Share them with user better yet, when you have one, take a picture and post it here so we can all see the fun!
Have a Thirty One-derful day!
