Hosting a House Party is Easy

I am very happy today to have another one of my good friends guest posting. This one woman juggles so many hats I get dizzy just reading her posts on Facebook.  I hope you enjoy her post on hosting a house party. 

I am so excited to help out my friend Melissa and honored that she would like for me to tell you about something I was introduced to that has been so much fun!

Have you ever seen a product on TV and said to yourself, “I wonder if that really works.” or “I wonder how much that costs and if it’s worth it.”  Are you looking for inexpensive ways to get your friends together that does not include them purchasing something from a catalog?  Then you need to check out House Party!

Let me explain what House Party is and then tell you what my experience with them has been.  A lot of companies want to get the word out about their product and they understand that word of mouth advertising, seeing products first hand and getting recommendations from people you know and trust can be the best ways to sell their products.  House Party gives these companies the chance to do just that.  You see a product you think you might like, you apply to host and if you are selected, they send you everything you need to host a party and introduce their product to your friends and family.  House Party has a website.  When you go onto their website, you can look for the companies and products that are currently available for hosting.  There are a variety of products at any one time.  There could be food, drinks, video games, board games, beauty products, photo products, or just anything you could potentially buy in a store or online.  The products are continuously changing.  There is a small catch to this, but I think you will find it is worth it.  You have to agree to host a party inviting at least 10 people and you have to upload pictures of your event to the House Party site when you’re finished.  They will also send you a survey after to get your opinion of the product and the party pack.

I have had the pleasure of hosting several House Parties as recently as last weekend!  I have hosted parties to introduce the Xbox game “Just Dance 3”, Soda Stream, Blue Bunny ice cream, Gevalia café creations, a new novel by author Lisa Jackson and most recently Redbook magazine and L’Oreal Miracle Blur cream.

I have attended house parties that my friends have hosted for Shutterfly, Gevalia coffee and Glade scents.

As a host I was given the Xbox game, Soda Stream machine, ice cream, coffee, books, magazines and products all for free for me to keep!  I can tell you I would never have bought a Soda Stream machine myself but my kids love it! Guests get samples of products, coupons for savings on products and in the case of the Shutterfly party I attended, I got to make a FREE photobook.  Best of all, you get your friends together for some great fun and nothing to buy!!

So, if you like to try new things and get your friends together, I hope you will consider applying for a party with House Party. It really is a lot of fun!

  9. Tiffany,
    Here is Amy’s Reply on the soda Stream. I think the Soda Stream machine is pretty cool. If you are an absolute brand specific soda drinker, it may not be for you because it isn’t going to taste exactly like your favorite soda. It is great for my kids though because there is no aspertame and it is a lot better than soda. They get to have a little more of it because I don’t let them drink a lot of soda. They also have Crystal Light flavors, Country Time lemonade and other things like that, which are very yummy. I’m a big fan of Crystal Light Fruit Punch!

  10. I belong to House Party website but I never get picked for their parties but like being a member it’s fun to see everyone’s greet parties.

  11. This is pretty cool! I love to try before I buy. I often hesitate to buy anything on TV because I never know if it’ll be junk or not.
