Home Party Booking Games To Keep Your Calendar Full

home party booking games

So maybe Twister isn’t the best home party game to get more bookings. But… booking games are a great addition to any home party business.  In addition to helping you get more bookings, it will also entertain your guests.  I’ve found that I get more bookings by turning the process into a game instead of simply asking if a guest wants to host a party.  Here are a few that I have used over the years…

The Dice Game

To play, you need a pair of dice, several prize items and 11 cards in envelopes numbered 2-12.  Inside envelope #2 will say “Grand Prize”, #’s 3, 4, 5, 12 say “Win A Prize” and #’s 6,7,8,9,10, 11 say  “Book A Show”

Before you start the game, tell everyone that this game is optional.  To play, they must do what’s on the card.  They roll the dice and pick a card that goes along with the number.  If their card says “Win A Prize”, they take a prize from your basket of prizes.  If their card says “Book A Show”, they must book a show.  And if their card says “Grand Prize”, they get a gift and book a show.  Remind them that when they book a show, they will get lots more for free at their party.

The Balloon Game

As guests enter the party, give them each a balloon.  Inside each balloon is a folded note.  Tell them that this is their balloon for the night and to hold onto it.  As the show goes on, they’ll be curious about this balloon and what’s inside.

At the end of your presentation, tell them that inside each balloon is a bonus/prize.  If they book a party, they can pop the balloon to reveal their prize.  It can be anything from free shipping, a small item, gift certificate to a local shop or a large item that will be given at their show.  That’s up to you.

I love this game.  Once your guests hear the first pop, the rest want to pop theirs too.  At one of my parties, nobody jumped right in to try it.  Finally, a guest told me she wanted to book.  I got out my pin and popped it for her.  After that, the pops were everywhere.  It just takes one to get it going.

Deal or No Deal

Bring envelopes with notes inside that say either “Prize” or “Book A Show”.  Pass the sealed envelopes to everyone. Let them know this is a “deal or no deal” situation. They could win a prize or book a show but either way they have to do what their envelope says.  If they don’t want to play, they simply say “no deal” and give back the envelope.  But if they do say deal, they need to do what it says, either pick a prize or book a show.

This is the first game I used to get bookings.  I had a very small party of only 3 people.  I tried this game and got all 3 to book a party!  You better believe I’ve done this again and again.

Variation: You can also tape a note, note side facing down, to a candy bar.  Hand them out with “deal” or “no deal” on the note.  Do the rest the same.

The Ribbon Game

The hostess starts the party with 3 yellow ribbons tied to her wrist.  On the 3rd ribbon is a gift or a note for a gift attached to it.  Let the guests know that as people book a party, they can remove a ribbon.  Once the 3rd ribbon is removed, the hostess gets to reveal her gift.

Variation: You can also do this with necklaces/beads around her neck.  This is perfect for Mardi Gras season, red and green for Christmas or red, white and blue for 4th of July.

What about you?  What booking games or techniques work for you?

How to do this is to simply, think about what you are thinking about. Being mindful of those negative thoughts is the key. For instance, for years I use to make the joke, ‘I can get lost in a phone booth’. I was always getting lost. Then, I thought about what I was thinking about this and how my little joke was causing me to manifest the wrong experience. I stopped myself from saying this to anyone and when the thought crossed my mind I replaced it with a more positive thought. “All things are in perfect order and I am good at finding my way anywhere!” I say this anytime I set out somewhere new and always find my way perfectly, with ease. I am now confident in my skill for navigating and it would seem odd to me to get lost.

If you look at your thinking process and find that something you think about does not make you feel good, make the effort to change that thought to something positive. Acknowledge that this is a ‘good’ thought and the emotion will follow. How to control the law of attraction is just that simple. Controlling of your thoughts and emotions controls what will be attracted to your life and what will be manifested. This is an ongoing process and does take effort but it does work.

We guess and believe all of us are fond of fashion. Regardless men or women, we still want to look at our best whenever we go. However, many people spend too much money on their appearance that they have to struggle every month to balance out other expenses.?? This will no longer be the case if you choose budget fashion stores. There are many stores of this type on the market right now.

Many people believe that you have to wear designer clothing to appear great. This is not always the case. You can still look great without designer clothes. Today, many budget stores offer designer-similar clothing at a very cheap price. You should not pay too much attention to the brand of the piece you are putting on, unless you are a millionaire. Wearing designer clothing is good, but it will no longer be good if you have to tighten your belt to be able to do so. Anyways, fashion is just an additional part, not an essential part of life.

In budget fashion stores you can buy anything you can imagine under the sun, from baggy jeans to UFO pants. The choice is all up to you. With only a few bucks you can have a top, and with only a few hundreds dollars you can have a completely perfect look that you desire.

These stores also enable you to shop for clothes online. Online shopping can provide as much fun as shopping in a traditional store. You will not have to dress up and step out of the house and you can shop in the middle of the night. You just need to know the correct size of your body. Once you order you can expect to receive the items in a matter of days. Personally I think online shopping will be the future of our shopping habits.
