A Tupperware party is a must if you wish to become a successful
Tupperware manager who sells a lot of products. Tupperware products used to
lounge on dusty shelves in hardware stores across the US till Brownie Wise, told the
founder Earl Tupper, to pull them off the shelves and sell them exclusively
on direct sales only.
It proved to be a big hit! Women (and men) love the idea of gathering
around in a familiar surrounding with friends and family members, looking at
products. At the same time, they socialize, have a pot luck party, learn a
few new skills and also have fun. A Tupperware party is not complete without
some silly games as well. Winners get nett items, with Tupperware trade
marks on it, no less.
Here I will share with you some tips to throw a successful Tupperware party,
by location and also the items you need to have in hand.

Steps in throwing a Tupperware Party
Before the appointed hour, lay all things that your wish to promote on a
table or a coffee table.
Arrange the items in an attractive manner
At the appointed hour, welcome the guests and make them comfortable. To
make it more personal, you can pin name tags on them so that you can call
them by name later. Distribute lucky draw numbers at this time.

its features and benefits. Item by item.

Activities to do in throwing a Tupperware Party
After a while, a few silly games can be stale. So, to add variety,
you can add in these few activities to spice up your Tupperware party:

Special occasion party to celebrate Mother's Day, for example
A meeting to replace spart parts that are covered by warranty or to
order new ones which got lost or damaged and not covered by

have a good and close relationship with the person who recruited you who
can become your mentor.
If your superior is not qualified to do so, look
up to the next level, such as the distributor and ask for her help.
