I know ___ looks like alot of invitations to use but my experience show only 1/3- 1/2 of everyne you invite will be able to attend. So really over invite if you'd like a really successful show 2. No one will be insulted if you invite them, but they may feel left out if you don't. 3. It's no more trouble to prepare your house for 20 than it is for 8. 4. More people in attendance creates more of a party atmosphere. 5. A larger crowd usually feels less pressure to buy. 6. Usually higher attended shows result in more free products and bonuses for you! 7. Keep some extra filled out invitaions in your purse. This way when you run into people you haven't invited, simply say. " Hi ____. I'm having a Pampered Show at my home next week- are you familiar whit their great kitchen tools? Let me give you an invitations. Sure would love to see you and I know it will be lots of fun!" 8.
