Mom Select - Holiday Showcase Home Party

I just finished cleaning up from a fun, holiday get together at my house. It was the perfect timing to take my mind off the medical drama that has become my life this year.

Thanks to Mom Select, I was able to host some of my best friends and some of the best sponsors, as I unveiled and gave away some amazing gift ideas.

Last month I was sent a box containing the following products:

The planning for this shin dig started three weeks ago when I Facebook invited 15 friends to a Holiday Showcase Estravaganza at my house.

Over the last three weeks we lost and gained various guests, but everyone was very excited to be coming. All were asked to bring a grab bag gift so that everyone would go home with something. At that time I didn't know that various sponsors would contribute to the party. I was thrilled when boxes arrived that I could use toward the day.

Last night, I printed out questionnaires with 8 questions so I could unveil the products in a fun way. We played a game allowing everyone the chance to win the "Door Prize".

The questions went like this:
These bugs like in a hive but don't sting
The one dough you don't bake with, you play with.

This morning, I baked a Duncan Hines, Apple Caramel Decadent cake so the house would smell like Christmas, started the coffee and set up the table and waited for my girls to arrive.

They arrived and after some talking sat down for some goodies.


I passed out the questionnaires and explained the game. It was fun listening to them all discuss the questions and how little they knew. It was exciting to hear how competitive they were. I would have been the same way if I were playing.


It was so much fun to unveil the products and see who get them right. There were a lot of ohhhhh and ahhhhs as they realized they could have figured it out if they had really thought about it.


It was a tie and I picked a number between 1 and 10 to pick a winner. She was thrilled as you can tell.


The party was a huge success and my girlfriends were so happy to participate and get to check out some holiday gift ideas that they had never seen. The Sneaky 3D Puzzles from Patch Products was a hit.


The grab bag game was so much fun. All gifts were put in the center and I read off some questions.  Everyone got to choose from the pile until they were gone. They could have stolen from each other but everyone was too nice to do that.

I am thrilled to have been allowed to host this party and want to thank all the generous sponsors who provided giveaways and product to display.

Special thanks to Mom Select, Mommy Parties, Renuzit, and Dig-it-Games. We had a blast and we couldn't have done it without you. 

More about the Renuzit and Dig-it-Games in another post. This one is long enough. Wish I could have hosted all of you reading this!
