October is almost here and I love sharing new party ideas. Themed home parties are so much fun. It is easy for the hostess and I am able to help her keep things simple.
Here are some theme parties for the month of October (or anytime):
How about a Football Wives party?
I am football fanatic but what a great way to pass the time for those who are not into football (or hockey). I told my hubby just the other day, he got me hooked on football and now I am the one yelling at the TV during football games. We have some NEW Fall prints which will give you a chance to shop for the men in your life so they can sport their favorite team’s colors.
Chocolate Lovers Party – Serve chocolate goodies. Guests bring their favorite chocolate bar. We play a chocolate game and the winner takes home ALL of the chocolate bars. 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 will donate 25% of all sales to your organization or cause. Encourage guests to bring their gently used bags to be donated to a local shelter and I will give them 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. Trick or Treat bags from me. 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 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 or that week day morning when the kids are at school.
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, I’ll wrap the gift for them. I will help you gather a wish list from your friends (their wives/girlfriends) to make the shopping easy.
What are some of YOUR favorite October party themes? Share them with us. 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!
