Hi Everyone,

Looking for some more help with my training tomorrow morning.

Could you list some ideas that you have to get holiday bookings (Basically November and December bookings). That's what I'm in charge of. The more ideas I have to list off to them the better to list away!

Thanks so much!
 
I am doing Cookie Swap Shows and Mega Shows in December!! Plus a Holiday Shopping Open House probably mid November!!
 
I promote cookie swaps, Kids in the Kitchen shows, "Shopping Nights" for busy moms, shopping brunches on Sat. (everyone's busy at night during the holidays), and stuff like that for my December shows. My cookie swaps get the most bites, b/c the moms like to have their friends come and bring their kids, we make kids cookies first (creative cutters, sprinkles), and then I do 2 recipes with just the moms while the kids ransack their playroom (a bar pan recipe and a cookie press recipe - and I let everyone try the cookie press!). I sell a ton of baking stuff in Dec., so I am PSYCHED about the Dec. guest special!! :D

My November shows are all about getting the stuff they need for all of their holiday entertaining (SA, cookware/roasting pan, gifts for out of towners, teacher gifts, etc.). I also talk about getting stuff in Nov. for early Dec. gifts Plus, Hannukah is huge around here, so my Novembers are usu. very big - we have a large Jewish population where I live. I SO hope Sell-A-Thon is in Nov. again this year!! ;)
 
A few years ago, we had a PC Theme show for "Gifts to Go" .... I still offer this theme show wording, and just do what I like for the ideas. People LOVE the idea of options to get their gift giving done.

A few examples: Make the Harvest Spiced Nuts on the stoneware bar pan and place in cellophane for a quick, tasty gift for neighbors, teachers, etc. Or, you can put the nuts in a SA mug or a Prep bowl.

Also, recipes online somewhere for layered recipes that go in the Small Batter Bowl. This was a "1/2 homemade/ 1/2 keep it and use" gift idea. Better than a canning jar cause the item the food (such as a soup mix) came in was our Batter Bowl which can be used forever!

In a basket put the Wine Bottle Opener, a Cheese Knife, and then suggest a bottle of wine and a block of cheese included.

Lots of other ideas but the name of the Theme will attract guests!

(Another Theme show idea is "Holiday Appetizers"...with that I offer to make 2 ez recipes of appetizers that are perfect for holiday entertaining.
 
Holiday ShowsI know this is too late for your meeting, but I have attached several ideas for the Holidays. Please feel free to use and enjoy and pass along! Please customize for you own use. I am sure I have gotten some of these from CS too!
Have a good day:)
Deb Z.
