Clothing Parties… How, Who, Why?
When you are looking for a fun way to get your girlfriends together, you can host a clothing party. These are events where someone who runs a direct sales business brings their items and a catalog to your home. As the hostess, you provide the food and beverage. Most direct sales companies offer the hostess a substantial discount on her purchases. The hostess also usually gets some free items depending on how much the guests purchase, too.
Have a Fun Party Plan
When you want to host a clothing party, jewelry party or other type of direct sales party, it is important to make the party fun for your guests. You should always let them know that they are not obligated to buy anything. Some women tend to host too many of these parties and it can make them seem greedy; like they are only having the party for the discount and percentage that they get. It is important to remember that you are hosting a party to help a friend grow her business, too.
Provide Delicious Food and Drink
As the hostess, it is important to have delicious food and beverages for your guests. Many women throw clothing parties during the evening, so appetizers and snack foods are good choices. It is up to you whether you want to serve alcoholic beverages. As the hostess, you are the only person who should provide the food; do not ask your guests to provide any food.
Popular Direct Sales Companies
Most women are familiar with Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, and Tastefully Simple home parties. These have been popular home parties for many years. Now, there are many fantastic home parties. Some of the popular clothing parties include KikaPaprika, Diva Girl Party, and Jockey Person to Person. There are not many direct sales companies that just sell clothing.
Thirty-One is Hot
With the advent of online shopping, many people wonder how long direct sales and clothing parties will last. There are some extremely popular direct sales companies that women cannot get enough of today. One of the most popular is Thirty-One, which is a company that sells extremely durable and useful bags that can be personalized with monogramming.
Another very popular direct sales company is Silpada. This company sells beautiful jewelry that is chic and sophisticated. The other very popular jewelry company is Stella and Dot, which is a whimsical and fun jewelry company.
If you want to have a unique clothing party with all of your friends, you can organize a clothing swap party. This is a way for women to clean out the clothing that they do not wear anymore. Women can swap items with each other. This can be done with shoes, jewelry, and other accessories, too. When you set up a clothing swap party, you will need to figure out how you will swap clothing so that everyone gets a fair opportunity to pick something they like.
Whether you get a bunch of free stuff at your next clothing party or not, the fact that you hosted an opportunity for your friends to get together is what really matters!
