Death by Chocolate, Thirty-One hostess coaching and party game

Posted on Updated on

So here is something SO fun and SO effective to do at your next home party!

My friend Melanie Moore shared this idea with me. It’s called Death by Chocolate.

And this is a hostess coaching “trick”. So you call your hostess 24 hours before the party. You say, “I need you to call everyone and tell them they need to bring a candy bar. Doesn’t matter what kind, but they HAVE to bring one. And there’s a prize involved that they don’t want to miss!”. You can even send a text picture with this information that she could send a reminder RIGHT BEFORE the party the next day!

Now, I have a video below explaining too, but the guests earn POINTS for different things. So, like, if yours has nuts in it-you get 5 points. If yours has caramel in it you get 3 points, etc.

Now, the person with the most points at the end, gets ALL the chocolate bars! And everyone wishes them weight gain and chocolate induced acne, right?

But the great thing about this (besides the fact that it’s FUN and involves chocolate), is that it’s giving your hostess a REASON to call and remind her guests about the party!!! And that is the most important thing!

So when you have guests book, you’ll want to change up the game for next time. And here are some things we’ve been throwing around. My good friend Christina Rupracht shared the potato game with me. Same thing: points for: home grown, had to get one from hostess, point for each “eye”, color of potato, etc.

And Christina and I came up with a few more ideas we’re tossing around. Bring a cup (coffee, tumbler, handle, color, size-all different things to give points for). She has one for toilet paper.

And then we were talking about doing donation ones! 

So bring a can of food (donate to local food bank)

Bring something you never wear anymore that you would wear to an interview (donate to dress for success)

Bring an old purse you don’t use anymore (donate to dress for success)

The possibilities are endless with this game. And as I come up with the point systems and new ideas, I’ll be sure to post them here on my blog for everyone. 

Happy Hostess Coaching!!
