It doesn’t matter if you’re throwing a party at your host’s house or on Facebook, the goal is the same: to make it so incredibly fantastic that her guests are placing orders like crazy and begging you to book a party! It’s easy to knock their socks off when you create a one-of-a-kind theme party and we’re here to help you throw (at least) one a week!
Before we give you a year’s worth of amazing ideas, let’s first review how to throw a theme party:
Pick your themes
Choose a handful of the themes that interest you and do a search on Pinterest for some ideas to expand upon them for an in-home party. Have about five planned out that you can offer to your hosts and let her choose the one she’d like to throw with you. Not only will she feel like she has a bit of control with the planning and will know what to expect, but she’ll also love that her guests will be entertained with the theme of her choice! The same applies for Facebook Parties: simply turn those in-home ideas into virtual ones by creating themed pre-posts and party posts with Canva. Remember to keep your branding in check and give each post a Call-to-Action so your guests have questions to answer!
Put your coaching pants on
It’s time to coach your host! Make sure she knows what is expected of her and that you two need to work as a team to have a successful party. Send her what she needs with enough time for her to check it out and let her know that you’re always available for questions and that you need her to show her guests how excited she is whether in person or online. For the Facebook party, the pre-posts set the tone, so be sure to have a few fun ice-breakers that go along with your theme and make sure your host engages on ALL of them!
Let’s get this party started!
No matter what the theme, having an upbeat and successful party is definitely your main goal! For FB parties, planning ahead and having all your posts ready to go takes a ton of stress off of you and allows you to engage with your guests without missing a beat! They’ll appreciate all the attention and will be sure to take notice how on the ball you are throughout the entire party. This can easily result in more bookings! Don’t forget to schedule ahead with CinchShare, engage and answer questions, offer suggestive selling with custom albums and multi-photo posts, go FB Live to explain a product and show off your personality (dress up in your theme!), include a game or door prize and remember to have fun!
