New Year’s Party Survival

Entertain the easy way this year!

The New Year is just days away! Let Thirty-One help you get ready in style!

 

Fill an All-In-One Organizer with your party favors! This makes it easy for someone to pass the favors and keeps them looking neat the whole night! Or dangle a Littles Carry-All Caddy full of favors off your arm like a purse so you can pass them out as you greet your guests!

 

Party Games
Don’t let boredom send your guests to other parties!

Fill an Organizing Utility Tote or Storage Tote with supplies for your favorite party games to keep everyone having a great time!  For New Year’s Eve, try 2012 Fortune Telling — Create a list of funny fortunes (like you’d find in fortune cookies) and cut them out. Fold the slips and let guests draw their fortune from the Littles Carry-All Caddy.  As they draw, read the fortunes out loud, and enjoy the laughter!

 

Keep it Clean!
Don’t lug around a chunky trash can!

Cleaning up accidents and trouble spots as they happen will make your guests more comfortable than navigating around spills and trash.  Beside your good table, line a Tall Utility Bin with a heavy duty trash bag so you can have a trash bag that’s easy to find but still looks great!

 

 

 

Take it With You!

Zip-Up Pencil Pouch in your purse or waits neatly in your car while you take your clutch inside!

  • Aspirin (or substitute)
  • Blister Block or Rub Relief (high heels are killers)
  • Spot Remover

Networking At the Party
You’re going to have a good time, but don’t be unprepared to make new contacts.

Five Pocket Clutch take a clutch that’s both cute and functional! Whether a social gathering of friends or a work party, you’re likely to meet a few new people.  Have your business cards at your fingertips and be able to keep their cards organized as you receive them.  Add a Wristlet Strap to keep the clutch dangling comfortably from your wrist instead of tucking it constantly under your arm or laying it on a table.

If you’re going out for New Year’s Eve this year, stay safe and have a great time!

Happy New Year!

Spa on the Go!

15 minutes to Feel Fantastic!

If you’re travelling over the holidays, pack something to help you unwind – make your own travelspa! Pack a MiniOrganizer with your spa supplies, and find 15 minutes to refresh yourself and get in a great mood for the coming celebrations. Fix yourself a cup of an herbal tea like chamomile or lemongrass, grab a chair you can take into the bathroom (preferably one with a back) and sneak off to a bathroom your 15 minutes. Light a candle and turn off the light to let give your eyes a break from the twinkling tree lights and decorations.  Put your body lotion or cream near/on a radiator or heating vent to warm it. Soak a washcloth with warm water and lay it over your face. Sit down and let yourself just relax in the quiet, dark room. Once the washcloth cools, gently pat your face dry and apply your warmed lotion or cream in slow circles, massaging your face and neck as you rub in the lotion.  Now, put your head down on your folded arms on the vanity, close your eyes, and let go of your holiday stress.

Suggestions to put in your MiniOrganizer for a travelspa

• body lotion or cream
• shower cap
• soft face scrub
• candle & lighter
• bath salts
• herbal tea
• exfoliating scrub
• even a folded robe or hot pad!


Shopping Spa

Decompress During your Day After Christmas Shopping!

After a few hours of deal hunting, mall navigating, and line-waiting, you trudge back to your car weary and ready to just go home!  Be ready for that shopper’s-low with a Thermal Tote! That’s right – they’re not just for taking your lunches in style! When you’re getting ready for your shopping trip, wrap a hand warmer (not activated) in a thin hand towel and put it in your Thermal Tote! Once you park at the store you’ll be shopping in, activate the hand warmer (follow the directions – usually you open an air tight wrapper or flex a metal disk inside it) and wrap it back in the hand towel.  Most hand warmers can keep steady heat for as long as 10 hours!

When you get back to your car, get out your warm hand towel and put it over your face. Sit there for a bit, just letting that warmth soak into your skin! Once you’ve relaxed a little, wrap the (hopefully) still warm hand warmer in the towel and drape it over the back of your neck or wrap it around a sore knee.  Now you’re refreshed for your drive home through holiday traffic!

There’s plenty of room in a Thermal Tote to take several thin-towel-wrapped hand warmers! These are great for kids when they just in the car on cold days!  For toddlers and other children child’s too young for you to be comfortable letting them hold a hand warmer without supervision, you can activate two or three hand warmers and spread them out in a small, folded up fleece blanket inside your Thermal Tote. The silver thermal lining will help the hand warmers keep the blanket toasty warm, and nothing hurries up naptime like a warm blanket on a cold day!
