Questions to Ponder – Home Show?

It seems I’m one of the only people I know who have not been to numerous home demonstration shows during their lifetime.  In my 31 years I have attended ONE Tupperware party and that was about six years ago when I first moved to Florida.  Since then I have been invited, but have never gone to other shows for things like Pampered Chef and Creative Memories scrapbooking.  Honestly I’ve never had the desire to go to those parties, but I’ve heard other people talk about them with great delight and satisfaction.

Recently I was prompted to think about doing my own jewelry home shows.  Last fall I was supposed to do a show at a friend’s house, but because of some unforseen events on her side, that never happened.  I put the idea on the backburner until a couple days ago.  This is a slow craft show season in SW Florida, but I still want to get my things out there for everyone to see.  I’ve decided to go ahead and host my own party.  A bit awkward though since I don’t know quite what to do as a hostess.

So my questions to ponder:

  1. Is it weird to host my own party?
  2. Am I just basically asking people to come into my house and buy something?
  3. Do I play games? 
  4. Give prizes?
  5. What food do I serve?
  6. Is my house even big enough to host a party like this?
  7. Should I start with a smaller party for people I know or go for the larger party for the neighborhood?

These are the things I need to work on…  and soon since I’m hoping to hold this party the second weekend in August. 

As always, thanks for reading!
