I don’t even know where to begin with my weekend recap. It was so crazy that it feels like Friday was forever ago yet the weekend seems to have flown by.
Friday evening I was nervously getting ready for my very first in home Thirty-One party that I was doing the next morning (11am – 1pm). My hostess was absolutely amazing and before the day of the party she already had several orders and a possible booking for another party. I wrote out my entire party and what I planned to say on note cards and then went over them 824839487 times. I practiced my games on my in-laws and my husband so they could approve.
The party ended up going GREAT and I barely had to use my note cards. However, a few times I did have to get myself back on track and it was nice to have them so I didn’t feel like an idiot. We ended the party with $703 in sales. AWESOME RIGHT!?!
After my party I headed across town for a Thirty-One meeting that was amazing! We got to see a sneak preview of the items coming out for the spring and find out all the upcoming specials. If you have ever wanted to host a party TALK TO ME NOW!!! Great things are coming my friends!
Then when I got home from my fun filled day we went back in to town so that we could have dinner. We have a grocery store in town that is amazing. They have a taco bar, a grill, a deli with fresh food, and a bar. Yes a BAR in a grocery store. On Saturday evenings they have live bands on the patio. So this is where we had dinner. Then we hit up their bakery for some delicious deserts and then had wine at the bar. YUM!
Sunday, we did our normal movie (saw Alex Cross – not impressed) and grocery shopping routine. While I was in Wal-Mart though a lady that had to leave the party early the day before called me with her order! Then Sunday evening I received another online order from the party.
Overall I ended up with $1,039 in sales! FOR MY FIRST HOME PARTY!!
I’m so pumped for Thirty-One and my business! Today I booked a vendor event for my town’s Winter Fest in Dec.
I hope everyone else had a fantastic weekend as well!
