House Party

Several months ago, I don't remember how, but I came across this site called House Party.

What is House Party? From their website: House Party™ lets people who really love something host a special event featuring a fun, free, exclusive experience sponsored by the world’s leading brands. Each event is sponsored by a leading brand and focuses on something cool—like a new product, hit TV show, or great cause—that the sponsor wants its best fans to experience firsthand and share with their friends.

You apply to be a host for a party that interests you - a tv show premier, movie premier, food party etc...they have many different types of parties depending on the company who wants to get the word out about a new product.

You don't get selected to host every party you apply for; I have been fortunate to have been selected to host a Canon, Sargento, and Juicy Juice party. If selected as a host you'll receive practically everything you need to host a party via the House Party site and the party pack you'll receive. This can include products, coupons, and freebies to hand out to your party guests.

Last week I hosted a Juicy Juice party which coincided with the Mom's Club get-together at a park. This worked out perfectly for moms and kids to sample two new products from Juicy Juice - Immunity and Brain Development. We tried each of the products in Apple, Grape, and Berry.

See all the stuff I received in my party pack to make this a successful event? Even the table cloth, napkins and cups were included!

Each guest took home a coupon, growth chart, activity book, mini-deck of playing cards, BPA-free water bottle, and a reusable shopping tote!

I have one set of the "guest goodie bag" left over and I decided to offer it to a lucky reader! To enter just leave a comment and let me know if you've ever hosted a House Party event before (and make sure I have a way to contact you!)

P.S. The winners of the free Haagen-Dazs coupons are: Izzy 'N Emmy, Journey To Motherhood, and non-blogger Kelly! Congrats!

Hm, I've never heard of this, but I'm intrigued. How nice would it be to have a party where things are given to the guests instead of trying to get them to buy things? Those are the only kind of parties we seem to have around here.

Wow, sounds really fun! I have never heard of this type of event before. Very interesting. I am glad you had so much fun with it at the mom's group too.

Thanks for the ice cream! I can't wait! *hugs* Hope all is well with you and the kiddos too. Have you heard from Joe recently?
