Obviously i have lead a sheltered life, because when my good Friend, Rachael, at Pure Beauty and Holistics invited me to her PartyLite candle party i looked at her with a blank expression on my face.
I had never heard of them (and I'm a candle freak) let alone been to one of their parties!
So not wanting to be the only PartyLite virgin, i dragged a very willing friend, Simone along for a night of scented delights.
Rachael played the fantastic hostess as usual, supplying us with drinks, nibbles and mouth watering cupcakes. As we all got nicely settled, the PartyLite host, Sharon, gave us the newest brochure to paruse and a beautiful smalling samples kit was sent around the room.
You can see it now, Me reading the brochure as Simone is shoving a sample pot under my nose saying "Smell this one!" and there were 40 of those little pots to smell!
To ease us into the candle delights,Sharon decided to play an alphabet game. Each letter of the alphabet had to relate to something within our handbag, K for Keys, T for Tissues......You see where I'm going with this. To our surprise the only guy of the night, Karl, ended up winning (he had an imaginary handbag ;) ) After the fits of giggles, Sharon gave us a brief introduction to PartyLite,
In the early 1900s, schoolteacher Mabel Baker began crafting candles from the wild bayberries that grew in her native town Cape Cod. At first she gave them as gifts to her friends and family, but it wasn’t long before her entrepreneurial spirit took over. With a lot of persistence, hard work and support from her husband, by 1909 Mabel had turned her love of candles into a flourishing business.
Mabel remained passionately committed to growing and nurturing her business throughout her life. When she died at the age of 94 in 1965, what had begun with a single bayberry had become a company worth $6 million. Today, she continues to be our role model for success.
As Sharon was telling us about the company you can see that she loves her job, and goes on to tell us that ANYONE can become a consultant. Full time, Part time, the hours are up to you. To find out more see here ---> Become a PartyLite host.
So now came the HARD part......Choosing what to buy! There were so many great products and lovely smelling candles that choosing was becoming difficult, and I'm pretty sure Sharon or Rachael didn't want me staying the night trying to decide. So i opted for the Spring Beginnings 15 piece sampler set, Picture.
Sharon had a beautiful table of products to show, from dancing candle pots, to a stunning Enchanted Woodland Votive Hurricane light (this was my favourite!)
I would highly recommend getting the girls round (and maybe the boy's) and having yourself a PartyLite party, It's fun and different. You never know, you may love it that much that you become a host yourself!
