Pampered Chef: Theme Show Housewarming kind of party

  1. Ok.. I have a question. I am having a kitchen show next month and the lady having it for me has moved into a new house and she wants to have a show and invite her family to come to see her new house and see the show while they are there. And I thought that this could be a housewarming kind of show for her, does anyone have any ideas that I could do for this or even a name I could call it? I am stuck... my creativeness needs to kick into motion but it seems to have gotten a clog in the wheel. :p ...LOL any ideas would be helpful.. :)

    Hi Joyce!

    Be careful about paring a Kitchen show with a housewarming party. I had one before conference, and boy, was I glad my host & I cleared things up before the show. She & her partner had just moved into a new house and lots of people hadn't seen it yet. She, too, thought she'd combine it with a kitchen show. Well, luckily, we worked it all out ahead of time -- there were about 10 people who were coming for the PC part of it, and they were very interested, and hung out in the kitchen with me. The other 15 or so guests, who were so not interested, made that very clear by staying outside in her backyard having their own party. I was ok with it because I knew going in that it could end up this way.
    Just make sure you & your host are on the same page when you do this. It could turn out much better than mine -- I hope it does!!!

    Good luck!

  3. wow

    oh my... thank you for that tidbit of info... I hadnt realized the confusion it would cause. I will go over this with her and have her tell the ppl coming that it is not ONLY a housewarming party but a kitchen show too and that we will be doing both. thanks so much again for sharing that with me. :)

  4. I alos did one of these but my results were a little different. My host told her friends and family that they were coming to a PC HOUSEWARMING PARTY. The difference here is that they knew that they were coming to the PC Show first then would squeeze in seeing her new house when they could. I think that wording helps a great deal..

    Also, you could let everyone know that it can work like a bridal show. Everyone that comes has the option of buying the home owner something to fill those brand new cupboards!! (Have her fill out her wish list for this)

    Yeah I would definitely put on the invitations or get the word out that it is a PAMPERED CHEF housewarming party and explain how it will work!! So the guests are prepared to spend money. It is too often that some people like to think of us as caterers! SORRY NOT ME!! Just make sure you cover your bases to prevent this from happening.

    You could do this like a bridal show....guests can buy a little gift as a housewarming gift.
Have something to add?
