Hosting an Origami Owl party is a great way to connect with your girlfriends, have fun telling stories and playing a few games all while earning some great hostess rewards. Some people freak out at the idea of hosting a party. Maybe it’s because they think their house is too small or they don’t want to clean or they are having flashbacks to their middle school fear that no one would come to their pool party because all the neighborhood kids were afraid of their german shepherd. (Ok, maybe that’s just me.)
Your party can be fun for you and your guests when you follow these tips on how to host an Origami Owl party.
How to Host an Origami Owl party: What to expect
The first step in hosting an Origami Owl party is selecting your date. Ideally, we should pick a date about two weeks out, so we have time to mail invitations.
On the day of your party, I will arrive about 30 minutes before the party to set up a jewelry display. Yes, I’m bringing the bling! I’ll bring an assortment of lockets, chains, charms, bracelets, dangles and earrings for you and your friends to play with!
I will set up the display in the same area where the party will take place, I only need tabletop space. We can set it up on a coffee table or console table in the living room or on a dining room table or breakfast bar area.
You will be my human jewelry tree for the evening and wear a chain with three dangles on it. During the party, your guests will have the opportunity to take the dangles and if all three are taken, you’ll get to the keep the chain as an extra gift for hosting.
I’ll do a very brief presentation explaining what Origami Owl is and how to build a locket and then you and your guests will be encouraged to get up close and personal with the jewelry, building lockets and sharing stories. The entire party should last about two hours.
How to host an Origami Owl party: Tips for a killer party
Start with a reasonable guest list. An ideal party is five to six guests. Not everyone you invite will come, so you should plan on inviting two to three times the number of people you actually want at your party. So, if five is the magic number, plan on inviting around 15 people.
Want the best response? Mail an invitation. On an actual piece of paper, that is delivered to your friend’s home by the mail man. Seriously, when was the last time you received something fun in the mail. I get bills and AARP flyers. (Cool it, AARP, it’s not my time just yet.) I will even make you adorable invitations to mail and provide the stamps. I’ll even address them if you send me your guest list in time.
When it comes to the menu, keep it simple. (I know, I know, this is the hardest part for me whenever I host people.) Ideally, you should offer two items, one salty/savory and one sweet. Even if you are a gourmet chef at the finest restaurant in town, the star of the party should be the jewelry. You want your friends bonding and building lockets so you can rack up some free jewelry, not spending the afternoon at a delicious 17 item buffet spread. (And who wants to do all those dishes anyway?)
Think you need to clean your house? Think again. We’re only going to be in your living room or dining room. Tidy up your bathroom and room the party will be held in. Nobody is checking to see if you made your bed or organized your closet.
