    I used to do all sorts of different ones that took lots of planning, etc...like the Murder Mystery one, and Amazing Race. But then, I took a good look at my business and what I'm best at, and what's fun for me, and I stopped doing anything that was a lot of extra work. It just didn't pay off in sales or bookings.

    I now only do PC themes (other than the kids cooking one) and I am so much more at ease, and relaxed. It was SO MUCH WORK coming up with all of my own stuff all of the time, and having to print off stuff, and keep it all straight. I want my business to be easy and fun. I excel at working with hosts and guests at the show, and having fun with them, so now I just focus on that.

    Recently I started offering Mexican Fiesta Theme Shows and have been getting a really good response. I really think it hooks people when I mention margaritas.

    What I offer is: Chicken Fajitas in the DCB - we then prepare the homemade salsa while that is in the microwave. And I serve margaritas in the family size picture. Easy! And it shows a variety of products!

    Good point Becky.

    I was just curious because I had heard that a few pther cons arround here were doing these kinds of shows. I was looking for feedback.

    I think you are right. I am Loving the DCB and the Fajitas. Although I cannot figure out why people are not buying them. Many hosts do but other than that no dice?

    Thanks!

    I am changing mine every few months to go with the season. So now I am offering BarBQ Shows (or couples show), Fajitas and Margaritas, and Ice Cream Socials.

    Feb-Apr I offered Power Cooking (beef), Decadent Desserts (turtle fudge skillet cake), and Bites and Bevs (jerk chicken nachos).

    I am not very creative.....

    I know this is a little off topic, but do any of you have invitations for your different Theme Shows? Please post if you can, I am really having trouble coming up with one. I do appreciate any help! Thanks,

    There are a lot of invitations in the files sections... like for the margarita shows just go to the Files section and type in Margarita in the search part and there will be a lot of invitations... you could probably type in invites or invitations and it'll come up with a bunch of different ones, but if you are looking for one in particular that would be the way to go...

    What do you do for an Ice Cream Social? I would like to offer this, it might help my bookings but I don't know what you do/use.

    I am with Becky, as I used to do a ton of theme shows. Each show was different and I was constantly packing, and repacking my kit, forgetting things at home, and generally losing what little mind I had.

    Now, it's the PC theme, dinnertime in no time all summer long with the BBQ chicken sandwiches. My kit has been packed since May, my paperwork bag is always ready, and I always have all my tools and am a whiz at my demo. When I do a booth, and I do a ton of them, I just take my kit and paperwork bag and am good to go.

    I loved the different themes and recipes, but I finally realized that I was focusing more on the food then the products. My business is much better now, in fact last month I beat my director in sales.

    Hi Stefan, my Poker show is real simple. I demo wings or ribs and play one hand of poker through out the show. I give the host a deck of cards (either pink for HWC or disney for our trips and whenever someone asks a question about the products, the opportunity, or hosting a show they get a card. At the end of my demo they pick 5 of there cards to make the best poker hand.

    Race shows take a bit more preparation on my part. I break two recipes into steps and split the group into two teams. They prepare the recipe and the first one finished wins bragging rights. If you search threads you will find lots of tips.

  14. This summer I'm offering the PJ Brunch Show, Grillin' and Chillin' Show, Beauty From the Kitchen Show, Margaritaville (Cheeseburger in Paradise for the Non-Drinking hosts who are Jimmy Buffet fans), Kids in the Kitchen, and the Real Food, Real Fast with the DCB. So far, I've booked at least one of each kind.

    Good luck

    I have to say having the "same show" makes things easier. I had 5 this past week & was amazed at how easy it was to get ready for my shows b/c they were all making the same recipe. I didn't have to think about what I needed, just take it out--wash & repack.

    I did see the couples show on here though and can't wait to try it--it sounds like soooo much fun.
