    Welcome to CS! Tell us a little more about your party - what did you make? Where was it?

    Mine was at home, with just a small group of about 6 friends. I was sooooo nervous. (needlessly)

    I remember I couldn't figure out how the measure-all worked, so friend showed me.

    3 recipes - app, main, and dessert, and it was way too much for the first 7-8 shows I did. After that I cut down to one recipe per show.

  4. Thank you ladies!
    We had it at my sisters house. There were 6 guests. I had 350 in commission-able sales. Not as great as I was hoping my first party would go but Im happy with it! We made the cheesy chicken broccoli squares (from the season's best recipe book) on my sisters new pizza stone that she had ordered from a party I had hosted right before I signed up. It turned out great! I had one booking for June from her party. Im a little nervous that getting people to have parties will be my downfall. Im not a real pushy person and dont want to come across as being pushy. Any tips or suggestions are welcomed!! :)

    It's good you're not pushy. Pushy is bad. Don't think of it as "getting people to have parties." Think of it as offering to help people get PC products free. After all, you don't think it's pushy when a server asks you'd like ketchup or offers the dessert choices. Here's basically what I say:

    Are you ready to host your own party?

    If their answer is no: That's fine. I make sure I ask everyone. I'm afraid someone will think I didn't ask because I don't like them or don't think they'd be a good host.
