In the need for some new office apparel? Accessories getting tired? Short on funds? If the answer is yes to these questions, an accessory party is the ticket.
It’s been proven that when people feel like they look good they have more confidence and actually get further in their lives. They’re more productive and even friendlier, studies have shown, but not everyone can afford new clothing or accessories all the time.
An accessory party is fun and can be done in someone’s home, an office nobody’s using at lunch time, or in a quiet lounge somewhere. Everyone walks away with something new (to them) and nobody has to spend a dime.
As fun as a Game, but Everyone Wins
This kind of party requires all attendees to bring the accessories they don’t wear anymore and set them out so everyone can look at them. Bring:
- Shoes, boots
- Hair doodads
- Any accessory not being used any longer.
Choose a place where there’s plenty of room for people to put out their stuff and have a table where guests can serve themselves beverages and snacks and place it away from the activity.
When everyone is set up, ring a bell or just say go, and everyone goes around to everyone else’s items and chooses the ones they like. They then make a deal of trade with their own items and both people get new stuff. Even men can be invited if there’s other men for them to trade with.
Recycling accessories gets them reused and waste is reduced. Do your part.
