Do you remember a few weeks ago i did a post of the dangers of attending a Tupperware party (here)? Well today i had my own. I know, I know, i can hear you all scoffing from here. My bestie needed a booking to get to a certain level to qualify for free stuff. Its been a little while since I've had a gathering at home and well, any excuse for a party i say. No sales objectives and therefore no pressure to buy anything or coerce my guests to do the same.
|There were some not in the photo so 18 in total.|
There were neighbours that i know and some that i don't plus friends i hadn't seen for a while. My Mum and brother from NSW are visiting, my sister Glenda of course and my Bestie with Mirandah. Veronica came from work (first visit to my home and garden), Noelle, her friend and granddaughter, but a special treat was a special bloggy friend and her children. Today i met Miss Townmouse, Sharon from Ballarat, and her beautiful daughter India and her son, Tyler. What a nice family and so good of her to travel so far.
|Miss Mirandah being a willing assistant to Es, folding the melted Toblerone into whipped cream for a dip.|
200gm of Toblerone, melted at 50% power for a couple of minutes (keep checking). It keeps its shape so take it out and give it a swirl with a spatula and then in for another quick go.
300ml of whipped cream. (we used the little hand food processors - 30 seconds with the whipping paddle)
Fold Together with 1 tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of brandy (optional)
|Served with fresh strawberries, wavers and the Lava Muffins - Yummmmmmmmm|
This was served during the presentation but since it started at 10.30am and we were nearing the brunching hour, i laid a table of eats inside for afterwards. The punch (not in picture) was just a 2L bottle of breakfast juice with a bottle of lemonade and fresh mint leaves on ice. Simple
|Just simple spread of the normal stuff - I didn't have time for a home baking session.|
I know i reached the first level of $500 sales and so i am able to purchase this entire set for $30. That's a $120 saving. I wanted the Vent Smart Small High for keeping broccoli in the fridge (it is a heavy breather and so i would have the vent all the way open) and the Deli Keepers wont go astray for keeping cold meats in. I can use the round bowls for salads to go to work in my new thermo bag below.
I know Hubby, who loved his first ever Tupperware party, is keen for me to get a couple of Veg Outs. These are for veggies that live out of the fridge like potatoes and onions.
|They have a vented lit and an easy open mouth for access. Es uses one of these for her snack box.|
So what did we do for the rest of the day, when the crowd made their way home. Some of my guests went onto the next party at Ella's, for cocktails and mocktails. I'm looking forward to getting the recipes.
Do you remember when Miss Townmouse did her training in Indian Head Massages. Well if you don't, then shame on you. Pop over and have a look at all the benefits.
Indian Head Massage While you are visiting, click on the follow tab because Sharon is an awesome cook, has the best garden and the cutest animals for pets.
Lucky me and Hubby were both treated to the most relaxing massage. The aromatherapy oils still linger in the house and through my hair. My pillows are going to smell great. Its a very gentle massage so dont be thinking its going to leave you sore the next day. Its done in a chair with your shoulders bare and incorporates elements of Reiki as well. Great job Sharon and I'm looking forward to you completing your reflexology course shortly. She wouldnt let me pay and so I'm going to have to think up some special treat for her.
Little Miss Tilly had a good day getting lots of cuddles and sympathy. She was desexed last week and is now currently known as Miss Buckethead. For the first couple of days she was so confused and i felt so guilty trying to explain to her what we had done.
Check This Out Pretty amazing Huh?
My Bestie's delivery from her party was today and she ended up with $638 worth of product for a total of $90. Now i think that's a Win Win Win. We have been going through all her bags and boxes this evening and its been like Christmas. So much cool stuff.
I also received my purchases from her party and so I'm looking forward to having a play.
|Now tell me which grater you would rather use? The new Tupperware one is like a mug with a handle. The grated whatever falls into the middle and you just tip it out. The front also comes off for cleaning.|
|This is a thermo bag for taking lunches to work. It is quite roomy inside and will fit stacks in it. The bottom of this drink flasks comes off and can be frozen to keep drinks cool. |
Add On - Next Day - Check out my berry icecream made in the thingy above. 1 Minute.
