Lips and Brunch
As a recent Independent Distributor of Lipsense, one of my biggest fears was no one would want to have a party. So, instead of waiting for someone to ask me if they could host, I threw a party myself. Let's be honest, I was just looking for an excuse to brunch.
I invited a few of my favorite gals over and tried to make it a no-pressure situation. We've all been to those direct sale parties where the seller puts so much pressure on everyone to buy something and that ends up being the entire focus of the party. That is not what I wanted. Instead, I focused on the relationships, making each girl feel beautiful and special, and of course, the brunching.
For the center piece, I used a fake eucalyptus garland. I added a few other type of leaves I had left over from other floral projects to make the center piece more full and colorful.
The flowers are fake as well, but you could easily add a few fresh flowers!
My placemats were made from kraft wrapping paper from the Dollar Tree. I just measured them and scalloped the edges.
I also found these great mirrors from the Dollar Tree. They stand up on their own which was perfect! Some of the girls who don't normally wear lipstick kept catching glimpses of themselves in these mirrors and would smile. I loved making them feel beautiful for a day!
My set up was pretty simple. I used a small decorative table and used a giant lip print from Hobby Lobby as my background. I made my own in stock sheet so that everyone could easily see what they could go home with that day, and compare and contrast colors.
I gave my guests about 10 minutes to peruse my color selection and asked them to write down their top three after swatching the colors on their hand.
Obviously, I had to set up my glitter background so the girls could have a fun photoshoot with their new colors!
Fun Tip - If your looking for cute glassware check out your local second hand store. I found these adorable champagne saucers for $.50 a piece!
Muffins, fruit, and a crockpot egg bake were on the menu with lots of Rosé.
So, if your an Independent Distributor who's nervous about having a party, throw a party yourself and get some practice! I gave all my gals a full discloser that I needed to practice and they were so receptive and willing to listen. And you know what? Almost every girl bought something, which I did not expect at all!
