Just give me a reason....

Just give me a reason and I will throw a party! I have been known to have an impromptu gathering simply because its sunny outside. So recently, I had the opportunity to host a product sample party for a few friends sponsored by Proctor and Gamble. The theme of the party was "Have You Tried This Yet?" As a hostess, we were allowed to have the party in any format, so I decided to have an ice cream social. Free Products + coupons + ice cream = Smile

Having an ice cream social was something that I have always wanted to do, for no other reason than my extreme love for ice cream. I provided several toppings like caramel, chocolate syrup, chocolate sprinkles, nuts, whipped cream, bananas, cherries and strawberries. We also had some root beer and orange soda to make floats.

Gift bags for my guests

What can I say... I aim to please and so did P & G! The best part of the whole event was that I was able to provide everyone invited with full-size personal care products and a booklet of coupons for the future purchase of those items. As you can see from the picture above the products were items people use everyday, so its not like the products would be wasted. My practical side approved of this.

Here is a list of the items that I was able to give to my guests, thanks to P & G:

Crest Complete Multi-Benefit Extra White + Scope Dual Blast Toothpaste
Crest Complete Multi-Benefit Whitening + Deep Clean
Covergirl Naturaluxe Gloss Balm
Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Shampoo
Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Conditioner
Oral B Complete Fresh Scope Scented Toothbrush
Scope Dual Blast Mouthwash
Gillette Fusion ProSeries Irritaion Defense Moisturizer
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Irritation Defense Shave Prep


  1. Now isnt this cute!! While it seems like something you would do, how did this idea come about?

  2. I actually got the idea from another mom/blogger who also happens to be a Spelmanite. She had something similar at her house a while back and gave me a list of companies that love feedback from moms.
