What type of party can you use a theme for?

ANYTHING! Whether you’re doing home shows, online parties, fundraisers, BINGO nights, or even straight retail orders…it doesn’t matter. The problem is everything is BORING! Same old stuff on a different day. Using a theme can help pique some interest and attract new customers as well as engage your current customer base.

So how do you use a theme?

So, think about it as if you’re planning an actual party. You plan:

  • Plates/cups
  • Decorations
  • Music
  • Food
  • Trinkets
  • Invitations

You would do the same thing for a home show with a theme.

So what can you do for an online party theme?

  • Graphics
  • Share recipes (everyone loves a good recipe)
  • Facebook banner
  • Invitations
  • Games (centered around a theme)
  • Fun Facts (about your theme)

See where this is going? Train your brain to think differently. Everything you do for a home show, can be done for an online party. ESPECIALLY with Facebook Live now.

Happy (almost) October everyone!

Thirty-One Halloween Cinch Sacs BOO Party for September!

Posted on

I shared this with my team and promised I would share here for everyone to use the wording! This is a great way to SQUEEEEEEZE one last September party in, and it’s leading up to the next two weeks of events I will be hosting. Don’t worry, I’ll share;)

So here’s the deal…watch this quick video for some extra tips and tricks:

What is it?

Sell 8 cinch sacs with embroidery and get a $200 party for yourself in September!! Create an event in your back office called BOO Bags. And get your ASK on!

Why in September?

Trust me. I’m setting us up for TWO big things the first 2 weeks of October. This is just the beginning and a way to get a head start on next weeks! Plus…I want that hostess blanket!!! And a paycheck on the 10th;) Plus…you’ll be able to order a cinch sac for FREE (with the hostess benefits from this party) to show off at your parties in October!

When is it due?

September 30th, get those orders in!! It’s important to give your customers the sense of urgency. “don’t want your favorite bag to sell out”.

Who do we ask?

EVERYONE! Post on Instagram, FB message your friends, post in your customer group, post the ones without prices on your main FB timeline, post on Pinterest, text your besties…make sure you’re asking all those moms and Grandmas too! You could also send an email to your customer base.

How can we increase those orders?

Show other ideas too. A) LUTs for Halloween storage decoration B) Littles carry alls for the little trick or treaters C) There are lots of ideas out there. Google “Thirty-One, Halloween” or search that on Pinterest. D) Do a drawing for anyone who shares the graphic and tags you.

POST THIS ((below)) IN YOUR CUSTOMER PAGE. TAKE A PICTURE AND UPLOAD TO COMMENTS HERE. ONE PERSON WILL WIN THE BOOK “BUILD IT BIG”. Let’s do this!!! Team Trendy knows how to make each month count!!! Strategic. Planning. I got you;)


Ok ladies!! Our SpOOky Cinch Sacs go quick in October! Sometimes we sell out of the Halloween colors and I don’t want my customers to miss them!! So I’m putting in an order ASAP!

Anyone who orders these is also getting an extra fun Halloween goody bag with their order. Post below, “BOO!” and I’ll get you hooked up! Order by September 30th and make sure your kids have the coolest treat bags on the block. Best thing is…they can use them EVERY YEAR!!


TEXT/FB MESSAGE: Hey Sally! I’m putting in an early order for Halloween bags because they’ve actually ran out of certain bags in the past. These are great because you can use them each year. I’m trying to get an order for 8 of them together…want to grab one before they’re gone?! We have ones for the little trick or treaters too:)
