What is my role in the party?

As the Host we want you to have the best experience possible. Your Demonstrator will work closely with you so that on the day (or night) of your party, you just need to sit back, relax and have fun with your guests.
Before your party, your role is to invite the guests and remind them a couple of days before. Purchase any ingredients required for the theme and have these ready along with any specific kitchen equipment (i.e. baking tray) on the day.
Your friends and family will not expect you to clean your house for a Tupperware party but if you are having a cooking theme you may like to clear and wipe down the kitchen bench and perhaps the microwave (if you are using this).

fun tip: Baby Powder at the Beach

Keep a small bottle of baby 
powder in your beach bag. When you're ready to leave the 
beach, sprinkle yourself and kids with the powder and the 
sand will slide right off your skin

When should I have my party and how long will it take?

That depends on you and your guests. We hold parties anytime from breakfast to supper (and sometimes even later), weekdays and weekends. The choice is yours!
The average Tupperware party goes for a few hours. The product demonstration is a fairly short part of this however most of the guests will have questions and will appreciate help placing their orders. This is where the Demonstrator will spend time providing individual advice to ensure each guest can make an informed decision regarding their purchases.
If you require a particular timeframe for your party discuss this with your Demonstrator. They will be able to cater for anything from a quick ‘Stop’N Shop’ in under an hour to a leisurely cooking workshop.

I have some friends who can't make it; can they place orders or book a party?

Absolutely! All sales and bookings for your party (whether they are made at the party, in the lead up or in the days immediately following your party) can count towards your party total and therefore your gifts.
When you invite the people on your guest list some will know that they are unable to make it and others may have last minute issues that prevent them from attending.
Providing a catalog to each guest prior to the party really helps with this. Our product ranges change regularly so even people who have been to many parties before are likely to see a new ‘must have’ to complement their lifestyle. Put the catalog into the hands of someone who has never seen Tupperware before and you’ll be amazed at their reaction – often its ‘love at first sight’!
If someone can’t attend don’t be afraid to ask them if they would like to Host their own party. Sometimes it just doesn’t occur to people and it’s a great way for them to catch up with friends and earn free gifts too.

What’s the best way to ensure my party is fun and entertaining for my friends?

Personalizing your party to suit you and your guests is the best way to ensure a great experience. This means selecting a style of party or ‘Taste of Tupperware’ recipe theme you know everyone will enjoy. Check out the list of recipes and party theme ideas in the Menu of Parties for more inspiration.
It also helps to give your Demonstrator as much information about the guests as possible. Understanding people’s lifestyle and needs will enable them to display and demonstrate relevant product ranges and to ‘design’ a party your guests will find fun, informative and engaging.

What about BPA?

Bisphenol A, commonly abbreviated as BPA, is an organic compound with two phenol functional groups. Bisphenol A is used primarily to make plastics, and products containing bisphenol A-based plastics have been in commerce for more than 50 years. It is a key monomer in production of epoxy resins and in the most common form of polycarbonate plastic. Concerns about the use of bisphenol A in consumer products have been regularly reported in the news media since 2008.
In regards to BPA and Tupperware, of particular importance is this excerpt from our 2008 report:
"Tupperware has also conducted studies through independent testing laboratories to confirm the safety of our materials and has found the migration levels of BPA in our polycarbonate products to be well within acceptable levels specified by the governmental regulatory agencies."
Polycarbonate is not used in Tupperware children’s toys.

What about refreshments?

It is usually best to keep your refreshments light and simple. Nibbles such as dips with cheese and biscuits are great to accompany a lunch or evening timeslot; cookies, a slice or a cake with tea and coffee are perfect for mid morning or afternoon.
You don’t need to go to too much trouble, no-one expects you to provide a banquet so be kind to yourself! Providing elaborate catering will also deter others from booking from your party as they may think they have to live up to those standards.
If you have selected a ‘Taste of Tupperware’ recipe theme for your party, you may only need to provide the ingredients. This way you and your guests will have fun creating the refreshments for the party at the party while learning a delicious new recipe at the same time.
