Wordful Wednesday - Thirty-One Party




Saturday afternoon I attended a Thirty-One party hosted at the campground by my sister. For those not in the know, Thirty-One Gifts is a consultant based business that sells purses, bags, and totes. This wasn't my first rodeo at a Thirty-One party. I've been to a few others and have been talked into hosting a couple of my own from time to time.


My sister offered a spread of bologna salad, chicken and cream cheese dip, and crab dip. That was enough to get me to come!

The consultant had us play a game where we had to blindly draw pictures based on what she told us. I'm not creative to begin with, and it only goes downhill from there when I have to draw with my eyes closed. On the plus side, I was able to draw breasts close to the correct regions. Still didn't get points for that though. Whatevs!

I'm not gonna air my sister's business, but she fared pretty well with total orders. It's good to be a hostess when people got your back.

Because it was a low-key, outdoor affair there were several little ones running around. I always enjoy seeing my nieces and nephews.

I ended up purchasing a large tote to carry my derby gear. My husband said the luggage bag I currently use could carry a body, so I downsized.

Have you ever attended or been the hostess for a consultant based business?

I try to avoid those parties at all cost lol. However, my niece did throw a 31 party last year, and they really do have lovely things!

Ya know it has been a very long time since I have accepted an invitation to any kind of sales party. We are on such a tight budget and there's just no way I could attend and not purchase something! Hopefully things will turn around soon...I'd love to go to one like you did!

I used to sell Cutco knives but now I just avoid sales parties.

I have one of their bags that I won and use for all my swim things. I really like it and it's held up well.
