Halloween Themed Party Games for Party Plan Consultants

I love hosting theme parties with my Party Plan Business.  It’s a great way to break up the monotony of doing the same ‘ole party every time.  With Halloween just a few weeks away, I wanted to share some of my favorite Halloween Themed Party Games that you can begin using as early as October 1st!   Check places like Party City with these Party City Coupons to stock up on candy and decorations and you can give a “spooky” feel to your party easily and economically!

Who Am I?

When a guest arrives a name tag or piece of paper is placed on their back and they are told that by the end of the party they must guess what it says.   Note: You can choose to use product names, names associated with Halloween or Fall.

This is done by asking other guests ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions about what the paper says. They are not allowed to read it themselves, nor are they allowed to ask someone else what it says.

When they guess correctly, they win a prize like a candy bar or maybe a sample or Gardening Gift.

What’s In A Name?

Give each guest an index card and pen.  Have each guest write as many candy names as they can in one minute.  You can use an online stopwatch to time them.   You could also pass around a bag or tray with candy on it and have them write down the ones they remember seeing on the tray – one point for everyone one right!

You can vary this game by having them list things like “reasons to be your own boss” or “reasons to have a *company* party” instead of candy names as well.

What Do You Carry?

As you are going through your party presentation, randomly call out letters from the alphabet and the first person to hold up something from their purse with an item that starts with that letter gets a piece of candy.  The person with the most candy at the end of the show wins.  This is a funny one when you see what people think of with each letter.

The Great Pumpkin

Give each party goer a piece of paper or index card to draw on.  Then give these instructions:

1. First, draw the Great Pumpkin in the middle of the paper 2. To the left of your Great Pumpkin, draw a a little pumpkin so he is not lonely. 3. You are surrounded by vines, so go ahead and draw those in.  4. This is a Pumpkin Patch, and every pumpkin patch needs a Scarecrow. Draw a scarecrow in your patch.  5. Halloween is when bats come out to play, so put some bats in the air 6. Do you have a Happy Great Pumpkin or a Scary Great Pumpkin?  Go ahead and draw in his happy or scary face.  7. Draw a Halloween Moon in the sky.

NOW YOU CAN OPEN YOUR EYES! How does it look???? Pass paper to the person on your left for Grading:

If the pumpkin is in the middle – 10 points
If the little pumpkin is to the left of the Great Pumpkin, but not touching – 10 points
If there are more than 2 vines – 15 points
The base of the scarecrow is near the ground – 20 points
More than two bats in the air – 20 points
The face is actually ON the Great pumpkin – 20 points
If the moon is in the sky, but not touching any other part of the picture – 15 points

Perfect score is 110

These are great games to help pass the time while you are waiting for tardy guests to arrive or just to break up the party presentation if things start to drag.  Games are a way to keep the party fun and not boring, while making people laugh.  Remember, the more FUN your guests have, the more they will want to party with you again!

Home Party Plan Games for Direct Sales Parties

With a New Year beginning, it is a good time to change up your Party Presentation to offer your new Hostesses and Party Goers a new experience at your parties. Plus, it makes it more fun for you if you have fallen into the monotony of doing the same thing over… and over… and over….

One way to change up your Party Presentation is to add some new fun games for your guests to play! Done correctly, Party Games can be very beneficial to the success of your party! The truth is, the more FUN people have at your Home Show, the more likely they are to want to do it again! Playing just a game or two will get people laughing, having fun, and leave the memory of a fun, relaxed shopping experience with their friends that they will want to do again and again.

Here are my Top Ten Favorite Home Party Plan Games for you to try at your next party!

1. Just A Phone Call Away

At the beginning of your party ask everyone to take out their cell phones and hold them in their hand. You will have yours in your hand as well. Tell them this is the easiest game to win all night! *ha!*Ask everyone to dial in your number – call it out to them number by number – and then when you say GO – everyone hits call. Obviously your phone will ring since they are all calling you – simply answer the phone to find the “winner” on the line. Give her a little goodie for having the “fastest fingers in the room” HA! THEN – while everyone still has their phone out, ask them to SAVE YOUR NUMBER with your first name and company – i.e. Lynsey Party Plan Divas, Su Passion Parties, Eliza Jewels by Parklane, etc. Tell them that they have your number forever now, and if they ever need anything, you are JUST A CALL AWAY – ask them to please put their phones on vibrate or silent to not disrupt the party, and then begin with your Party Presentation.

2. Drop The Shoe

This will get guests talking to each other and your products. As each guest comes in, have each guest leave 1 shoe under their chair and put the other in the middle of the room. After everyone has arrived tell them to pick a shoe from the middle (not their own) and find the pair. Once they find it, have them find out what their favorite _______ product is and 1 reason why they should book a party. Once they have done conversing, go around the room and have each person introduce their “shoe friend”. It will sound like this “This is Suzy’s Shoe, her favorite item is ______, and she should book a party because________.

3. Recruiting Rhyme

If any selling you have done before, put down 10 to start your score. If you have a car and are able to drive, the thing to do is just add 5. If some extra money is what you would like, add 10 more which is just about right. A little spare time will add to your score, for this you may add 15 more. If you like people and think they are grand, add 6 more and see where you stand. Add 10 points if you think parties are fun, and when you add this you are almost done. If you score the highest, it is plain to see a_________________rep is what you should be. Add 10 more if you want to be a _______________rep, like me! (Thanks Vicki!)

4. Alphabet Game

Write each letter of the alphabet on a 3×5 index card. Hold each card up like a “flash card” and give it to the person who yells out a word having to do with your business (product, opportunity, etc) that starts with the letter you held up! The person with the most cards at the end of the game wins! (I also give a gift to the person with the least)

5. Crossed Out

As your guests arrive, give every few people a small gift. (For example, you can give every 4th person a gift (or give out the gifts however you choose). As soon as everyone is sitting, tell the group about the “no crossing” rule. If a person holding a gift is caught crossing her legs, then she must relinquish her gift to the person who catches her crossing her legs. This game should be played for the first half of the party. At the halftime everyone who has a gift gets to open it. (If a person who already has a gift catches someone with a gift crossing her legs, she can either trade gifts with that person, or choose a person who is “gift less” to give the extra gift to).

6. Thread Intro

Pass a spool o thread around to your guests and tell them to take as much as they want. Tell them you want to get to know them a little. Tell each guest to talk about themselves as they wrap the thread around their forefinger. When they teach the end they can stop. Start with your hostess. Go around the room till everyone is introduced.

7. Pass The Prize

Have a wrapped prize ready for this fun game. Hand 1 person the gift and have them follow the instructions as you read them. The person who is holding the prize at the end is the winner! (Similar to the Left Right Game)

“You thought all the gifts were meant for you. But I have other items too. So hold up this gift and look around, and give it to the one with eyes of brown. You think you are the lucky one, but let us all share in the fun! Look around with eyes discreet, and give it to the one with the smallest feet. Your feet are tiny and very small. Now hand it to someone very tall. Please, take your time and don’t be harried. Give it to the one who is longest married. You must be proud of your married life, now pass this on to the newest wife. If this parcel you are bereft, give it to the one on your left. The largest earring I’m looking for now, if you’re wearing them, step up with a bow. Now to the person with buttons– big or small, any kind, the most you can find gets the gift at this time. Now don’t get cross and please don’t fight, but pass it to the lady third on the right. We should stop now, don’t you agree? The gift is yours to open and see.”

8. Replace Your Husband

An ice breaker game to play at the beginning of the party
Have each guest write down an item in their house they need to repair or replace. Then have them list 5 simple reasons they want to get rid of it. Now have them cross out the item and place their husbands name in that place. Go around the room and have each person read aloud “I want to replace (husband’s name) because he….(the 5 reasons). The funniest answers win.

9. The Lei Game

This is a great game to play in the warm months or a themed party. Also great if you are offering the Vacation Vouchers for your Hostesses! As you reward your hostess with a gift for inviting you into her home, also adorn her with 3 lei’s. Announce to the crowds that during your presentation if they want to book a party yell out loud “I wanna PARTY!” The hostess will give her one of the leis around her neck. Offer an incentive for the hostess to get 3 bookings and she will also encourage her friends to book a party with you.

10. Party Bingo

Give each guest a blank bingo card and you should have a bag or box filled with cards that have your demo products listed on each one. As you go through your presentation, have them randomly fill in the names of items you show on their card. After you have done with your presentation, draw 4 cards from your bag or box and call them out. For the 5th one say there are 2 free boxes, 1 for booking a party today with me and 1 for becoming a consultant today, please fill those squares in. continue to draw product cards till someone says BINGO.
