I have a friend that is hosting a show she booked off of her somewhat disapointing May show. It was her idea to have her 14 year old daughter invite her friends and their mothers. I am at a total loss of how to theme this. I don't know what recipes would do well and how to involve the girls so they'll have fun. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. The show is not until July 26th. So I still have time but want to host coach well and have a successful show. It will be a bit of traveling. She lives about an hour south of me.

I've done several Mom/Daughter shows for the same group of Mom's. Did one when they were 12, 13, 14. The most recent was a Salsa party. We had three teams that night of Mom/Daughters working together to make up the snacks. They were as simple as the attached.

Katie,

I'm not sure if this will be of any help whatsoever, but why not do a theme that would be more enticing for the girls. If they are excited about it, the moms will follow suit. Something like a Luau would be fun. You could do an Aloha Pizza. Maybe have them in groups and race to finish the recipe first. You could do moms vs. daughters, or have the moms and daughters work together. This could be a lot of fun for everybody.

Since it's July 26th, you could make it a Christmas in July theme and have the moms and daughters bake together. It will also get them thinking about doing some Christmas shopping.

Another neat theme would be Mexican Fiesta. You could do a taco bar.

I'm sorry if these ideas seem lame, just a few from the top of my head.

Have fun and Good Luck!

Here are some themes that I have, the spa theme might be fun for Mother's and Daughter's, just some thoughts. Obviously some of the theme's that I have attached here include alcohol, so you can't serve that. Maybe supply Mt. Dew or Dr. Pepper, etc...A nacho recipe might be a hit with teenage girls, my daughter is 14, she would love that or the ice cream social.:)

So I'm set on doing an ice cream social. I'm still going to do a bit of a demo to show off the products. I'm gonna show the chopper with nuts and oreos. Graters with Chocolate. Use the egg slicer plus for strawberries. And so forth so I can still show the mom's the great uses for products. Oh also great tip got from someone at conference. Andies candies in garlic slicer. I would like to do some sort of game that can involve the girls but I'm not sure what to do and am hoping for something that will get the girls involved but the mom's thinking about the products. Any suggestions? TIA

Game idea: pick 10 tools and put each in a lunch bag numbered 1 - 10. Have Moms & Daughters work as teams to figure out, by feeling only, what is in each one. ( specify with catalog help or not using catalog!)

Things like the Garlic Peeler, nylon pan scraper, Twixit Clip, Ice Cream Scoop, one Creative Cutter, I Slice, Mini Whipper, Flexible Funnel, Citrus Peeler, Prep Bowl, Meat Tenderizer (after all the light things, this will be a surprise!), Zester, Scorer, Cut N Seal.

bonus points if they come up with a new use for what they think is in the bag

When you pull each thing out of the bag to identify, it gives you a chance to talk about something that wasn't in your demo

You could also do a catalog scavenger hunt. :chef:
