    I have heard the "Bring a friend, get a gift" phrase several times, but wonder what you all give the guest that brings the friend?

  2. Give a Gift

    Hi,
    I keep a basket filled with items I order on the supply order form. For example, the cake tester, citrus peeler, quik cut paring knife, hand lotion, etc. Sometimes I give an old Season's Best. :)

  3. I do the same. Everyone who picks from the basket at my shows say," I needed something like this."

  4. I have the basket full of goodies, too. I also print labels for hosts to stick on their invitations. At the bottom of the label, I type: Bring a friend, get a FREE gift!!! I've gotten a good response from this. Plus, the hosts appreciate not having to handwrite the information on the invitations. :eek:

    That is such a cute idea!! I love it!

    Just another tip you can pass along about the citrus peeler: It is great for helping to lift out the muffins from the deluxe mini muffin pan. Because it is plastic, it won't scratch the pan! :D

  8. chocolate

    Every one loves chocolate so since all of us consultants received the patriotic stoneware heart mold I've used it for Host gifts & bring a friend gifts.

    Ingredients needed:

    1 block of bark chocolate

    Directions

    Freeze mold for 1-2hrs

    Break off 2 squares of the chocolate & put in the microcooker & put in microwave for 1 min(microwaves may vary) then stir.

    Take mold out of freezer & pour quickly & evenly in mold then put in REFRIGERATOR for about a minute then take out by tapping it on the countertop or you may even have to go around with a butterknife & kind of pry it off evenly all around & very carefully then put it in a cellophane goody bag & tie it off with ribbon. The first time I did this & told how easy it was & how it makes great teacher gifts, or last minute gifts, I sold 4 of them.

    It may take a couple of tries to get it down with out cracking the chocolate but if it breaks just put it back in the micro cooker & use again once the mold is frozen.

    I like some of the other consultants have a basket of goodies to let them choose from. I highlight bring a friend on the invites, and I also put lines on the invites for addresses. On the second line I put and guest(s). I have got amazing results. At my show last friday the brought friend spent 175.00 in product. This helped my host reach two higher levels, not to mention helping me out. What little time it takes me to do this to my invites it is well worth the time. :D Good luck!!!!!!!! Amanda
