Simple Additions Show
I LOVE our Simple Additions line and thought it would be fun to do an "Entertaining" Theme show just using that stuff. We can do one easy mini muffin pan appetizer or dessert and then use store bought cookies and desserts to make a beautiful display. Here is a flyer I made up. Does anyone have any ideas to add to this?
Thank you for those wonderful flyers. This is my first month and I have been off to a great start so far. I thank this website for some of my success!
I was wondering, does anyone have a flyer for an ice cream social?
Ice Cream Social Flier....change info.
Does everyone just print out invitations for their hosts to use rather than using the PC postcard invitations?
Ice Cream Social Flyer
I love the flyer... but shouldn't the summer products be listed as June 1st - August 31st?
My guess is maybe that this flyer wasn't for this year? Right, Ginger?
Thanks for the great ideas!

I do not. I have several fyers with specialty shows on them to spark ideas but we use the regular postcards. I ALWAYS add a sticker with my name and contact info onto the postcard and for specialty shows I add a line telling them the theme.
I would rather give an extra door prize or host incentive than spend the time and money to print out special invitations (ink, paper, higher postage...) and I don't want to give the host the "work" of making the copies herself. I host coach that they don't have to "do" anything except invite friends, remind them, collect outside orders and shop for the ingredients.
Deb --- thank you so much to starting this site! Another consultant told me about it last week, and I'm hooked!!! Your information just rocks, and it makes me proud to be part of a group that wants nothing more than to help others become successful.
Thank you! Thank you!!

Thanks Jill. Actually my husband had the idea, my son did and does all the technical stuff, and I promoted Chef Success and got everything going the first year. Now I mainly monitor and chime in when I can.
The true stars of Chef Success are all our members who share their great ideas and help others everyday!
I would like to also say thanks. I was told about this site at conference by someone in our cluster that lives in a diffferent state. I have gotten so many great ideas. I enjoy reading the advise from people that have been in the business longer than I have. So thank you again and thank you to everybody who shares so willingly.
Here's a few I created
I've created a few and thought that I would add them, too!
As someone who is taking a "temporary exile" year off from my dream job of teaching to be home until my son is old enough to go to daycare, I have to tell you that's it's been really inspiring to read all of these ideas. I decided to give PC a try because I love cooking, love teaching...thought it might be a good fit. The them show idea is incredibly exciting to me...and you've all given such wonderful information to get started. THANK YOU!
Thank You So Much
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THOSE GREAT IDEA'S! THANKS AGAIN!
I use the PC invitations but print an address label that includes time/date where info. It also includes the monthly special. It takes me just a couple min to print out the labels and the host just has to either hand out or address cards for mailing. I do this in Print Shop,but I think you could create it in office label section also. And I always put my label on the bottom.
What are you charging for these classes?
Does anyone have anything for a Superbowl Show?
Here are a few I have gotten from this site. Of course I can't take credit for them.
Does anyone know when theSuper Bowl will be this year? When do you think we'll find out the March specials?
Thanks ladies ~ I love these flyers and invite ideas!
All these ideas are just awesome... I can't wait to try them out! I love the idea of making homemade facial scrub and mask...
I believe the Superbowl is Feb 5
I work with Print Shop also. Do you mind sending me your labels so I can see what they look like and if you dont mind, if I like them, do you mind if I change the info on them to duplicate what you have done? Thanks in advance.
Super Bowl XL will be played in Detroit, Michigan on Feb. 5, 2006 at Ford Field
Thank you all for the great Theme flyers! Can someone please explain to me the Mystery Host Idea? This is my 3rd month and I've heard this alot, but don't quite know what my customers are buying into, or what my part is in this? Happy New Year!
Theme Show Ideas
I love this thread! I wanted to share a couple of my favorite themes...
I think I've attached the files I use for my Despereate Housewives Theme. If they don't come through, would someone please email me privately and let me know how to do attachments on here? (firstname.lastname@example.org)
But if they have come through, I wanted to also send along my personal show outline and the recipes I use for this show (so I don't get a bunch of emails asking for them...lol!!)
Here’s the menu I’m using for my DH show:
Killer Kahlua Cake
1 box chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup oil
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 3.9 oz instant chocolate pudding
1/3 cup Kahlua
1 pint sour cream
Mix all, pour in well-greased Fluted Pan. Microwave 14-18 minutes. (The time depends alot on the microwave...have someone keep an eye on it. Also, if the microwave doesn't have a turntable, someone should give it a 1/4 turn every 3 minutes) Invert on serving platter, remove pan after 10 minutes. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve with warmed chocolate icing on the side..
Apricot-Almond Baked Brie
1/4 c. diced apricots
1/4 chopped almonds
1 T fresh parsley
2 T apricot preserves
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 pkg refrig. crescent rolls
1 4 in. round Brie (or 8 oz. cream cheese)
1 egg, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix 1st five ingredients together in SS Mixing Bowl.
2. Unroll crescent dough onto lightly floured cutting board. Separate into 2 squares, pressing seams to seal. Place Brie on one square of dough; set aside remaining square of dough. Trim corners from first dough square, leaving about a 1 inch border around cheese. Scoop apricot mixture evenly on top of cheese.
2. Using Creative Cutters, cut one shape from each corner and middle of remaining square of dough; set shapes aside. Trim corners of dough. Place dough over cheese, pinching seams, if necessary. Fold and crimp edges of dough to seal. Transfer Cheese to Mini-Baker. Brush egg over entire surface of dough. Place cut-out shapes over dough; brush with egg. Bake 30-35 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown. Remove from oven; let stand 15 minutes. Serve with apple or pear wedges, if desired.
(Variation: For Jalapeno Baked Brie, omit mustard. Substitute diced bell pepper for apricots, chopped pecans for almonds, jalapeno jelly for apricot preserves. Proceed as recipe directs.)
Basic Show Outline
I’ll prepare the Brie ahead of time at home, and then bake it as soon as I arrive at the host’s home. As the guests get settled, I’ll give them each the DH quiz to take…the one with the most correct will get a prize from my (NEW Medium Bowl Woven Selections) prize basket.
I have printed out some of the trivia tidbits on notecards…everyone will get one with their catalog. Whenever I have a moment throughout the show, I’ll call on someone to read from her card. I’ll toss a candy to people once they’ve read.
I’ll serve the Brie right away with crackers on the SA Rect Platter with matching WS Basket. As they are sampling, I’ll walk them through the products I used to make it.
Then I’ll mix up the cake in my SS Mixing Bowl, with ingredients all ready to go in my Prep Bowls, and put it in to bake. During this time I can talk up the new products and upcoming specials. I’ll serve the cake on a SA Medium Square and I’ll warm a jar of chocolate topping to serve on the side in one of the new striped SA Small Bowls.
I have a personality quiz with a few questions so that quests can see which character from the show they are most like. I’ll do this aloud toward the beginning of the show and pass out little labels for everyone to wear that say “who” they are: “I’m a Bree”, “I’m a Susan”, etc… I thought that might be a fun way to call on people throughout the show!
(If I'm doing attachments right, I also have a really fun Amazing Race/Survivor Theme Show that I'll send out, too.)

Theme Show Ideas
Since I apparently DID figure out how to send attachments (duh!) I'm attaching some files for my Amazing Race/Survivor Show.
This is really all the same show, but you can call it either Survivor or The Amazing Race, depending on what your host prefers. When I do the Survivor Show, I make an Immunity Necklace out of creative cutters and ribbon and I make a point of having the host wear it and tell everyone that she is immune from paying full price for a year, etc. I also ask all of the guests at the beginning to tell what their one luxury PC item would be if they could only have one. And when I break the guests into 2 groups to make the recipes I give them "tribal" names like, the "Chocolate Tribe", and the "Double Chocolate Tribe", or something like that, according to which recipe each team will be making. (It will make sense once you read the 2nd attachment...)

There are a few ways I've heard of. Basically you put together a show and instead of having a set host, you put everyone's name in a bowl and draw for the winner--who will be the host and get all the benefits. You could do one winner gets everything, or you could split it up between multiple winners. Here is the one that I put in my folders... my director passed it on to me and she swears by it--says she gets a massive amount of her orders doing shows like this. This is a catalog show flyer, but it doesn't have to be just for catalog shows. And if you get a show that's less than $1000, just split up the benefits between less people (b/c of less half-price products, etc.). Good luck
Dr. Phil Flyer!
Thanks Deb for the Dr. Phil Flyer idea! I love it! I am going to bring it up at my show tonight and see what kind of response it gets! Thanks again.
I think it's absolutely wonderful that you are sharing these ideas with us! It's my super starter month and these ideas make me excited about offering some of these ideas to my hosts. Thanks tons!
Sara I love it! Can you update it with the newstands? Maybe showing some of the uses and set ups. Fun!
