    Planning a Fun, Quick Home Party for 20 Guests!

    I had a baby last year and haven't done a home party in almost a year, but my best hostess has requested that I do a show for her.

    50 Guests, No Food Allowed. How Would You Do the Show?

    2 heads think better than 1. 100 heads definitely think better than one! LOL The venue doesn't want ANY food in the room. How would you entertain 50 guests? I know I could do a "walk through the catalog" and highlight some of our most popular products. But I'm looking for outside the box...

    Only 3 or 4 Guests What Do You Do

    Hey I am not sure if I should post this here but just a quick question. Do you do a show even if the host has only 3 or 4 guests. Is there a minimum that you do a cooking show for. Last night the host had 3 but I did get a booking and tonight the host has 4. Do you ever cancel. Thanks in advance
