Today, I'm sharing tips for hosting a Swap Party. This party concept is based on the idea that every guest brings five or more items they no longer use to swap with other guests. Essentially, everyone shops for free! As a guest, you are able to share items you longer use with others, while also coming home with fabulous new things. You can narrow the collection of items based on a category (e.g. clothing, books, accessories, home decor, etc.) or have a free for all with multiple categories.
Here are some quick tips for hosting:
1. If a guest bring five items, she gets to shop for five items. Keep the number the same, so it is fair.
2. Provide fabulous refreshments! You can even ask guests to bring their favorite food to share. Cocktails and appetizers can help break the ice and get the party started.
3. Send guests home with an extra treat. Party favors are always a nice way to end the evening!
