Superbowl Party Plays

Superbowl Awareness

Party His Socks Off!

With the Superbowl 2 weeks away, it’s time to make those Super Sunday Party Plans!

Portable Party!

Even if you’re not a football fan, no one wants to be stuck in the kitchen when everyone else is partying in front of the television!

The Serving Tray Basket is a great way to carry coffee table appetizers from the kitchen to the couch in one trip! Plus, with a removable liner, clean up is a lot easier than carpet spot-cleaning!

Unintentional Messiness

There will be spills, crumbs, and confusion; be prepared for them!   Fill a Square Utility Tote with extra napkins, paper towel rolls, your preferred carpet spot pre-treater, & a handheld wet-vac. Now set it somewhere close to the action but out of the way like behind or beside your couch, under the coffee table, or next to you entertainment center. If the excitement causes a mess, you won’t have to run and hunt for any of your trusted supplies.

Don’t forget to have a trash bag handy! With napkins, toothpicks, wing bones, and other disposable/messy components, appetizers and snacks can make clutter & chaos fast! Keep your trash bags looking tidy with a Tall Utility Bin.

Personal Chip Sacs!

Passing a big bowl of chips can get dicey – especially in tense moments when your team is making a big play.  A simple solution is: stop sharing! A big bowl of chips can make a big mess with just one fumbled pass.  Line a few Littles Carry All Caddies with a small paper sack or plastic wrap and set the big chip bowl at your snack buffet with a handy scoop or large tongs.  Your guests can refill their chips as needed — and this tiny tote’s handle makes party plates overflowing with appetizers and chips a thing of the past!

Napkin Caddy & Sauce Bottle-olier

Keep all your sports fans happy by keeping their favorite sauces & condiments handy! Whether adding a dash of hot sauce or a squirt of ketchup – make sure your guests can easily get to what they want without missing a big play! Fill the 5 exterior pockets of a Mini Organizer with a variety of sauces, condiments, or spices and add extra napkins & flatware to the large inner pocket for extra convenience!

Get that Tailgate Feel Indoors (without the mess)

Want that tailgater vibe within sight of your tv? Put a few ice packs (not loose ice) in the Thermal Container and fill the rest with drink cans! Now your guests can get that “reaching into the cooler” moment without a drippy, ice-melting-to-a-puddle cooler scratching up your floor. Plus, the Thermal Container comes in small or large so you can choose the size that best suits your party’s needs.

 

Decorating & “Undecorating”

Don’t let your excitement get smothered before the game! Decorating with Thirty-One is a breeze!  Set out your supplies, then organize them in an Organizing Utility Tote. You can keep tape, scissors, and other small necessities in the side pockets and easy-to-reach while your hang streamers, banners, or signs.

Keep a little notebook and pen is the largest side pocket! Brainstorms for next year’s party or just your next party often hit while you’re hip-deep in setting up today’s party.  Don’t let those great ideas get away! Jot them down & keep them with you without leaving your decorating halfdone. Plus, when it’s time to take it all down, you can note anything that needs replacing (torn tablecloths, ripped streamers, etc).

Take the Party with You!

If you’re not partying at home, Thirty-One products can still make the party go smoother.

Expand-A-Tote Day Extender — If you’re going tailgating or to a barbeque, pack a few cold weather necessities in this versatile tote! An extra throw or blanket, firstaid kit, and handwarmers can come in very handy. With the Expand-A-Tote Day Extender, you can keep them all right at your side, and if the day warms up, you can unzip the middle to expand the tote and keep up with any accessories that are too hot for the party: scarves, gloves, caps. Telling your kids to put their gloves in this tote will help them keep up with their gloves and save you from discovering that they’ve lost a glove at the tailgate-party when you’re getting them ready for school the next day.

Large Utility Tote — Don’t make six trips! We’ve all done it. Walk from the car to the house, car to the house – carrying ugly plastic sacks with extra chips, drinks, a bag of ice, spare cups, and whatever else you’re taking to your friend’s party.  Just neatly stack it all in a Large Utility Tote and set it in your trunk. When you get there, take out the tote and make one trip to the house.  Once inside and empty, you can put yours and your kids coats in the tote to make getting them ready to go outside in the cold a little easier!

Zip-Up Pencil Pouch — Don’t want to be tied down to a large purse or tote for the party? Pack those necessities that won’t fit in your pocket in the Zip-Up Pencil Pouch. Keys, cellphone, tissues, and other supplies easily fit in the pouch, and the pouch will tuck into your coat your jacket! Or with a Wristlet strap you can keep the pouch close by without keeping your hands full!

 

Thirty-One products can make your party go smoother! Whatever your plans are, remember to have a great time!

Beat Black Friday!

Planning to brave the crowds, lines, and chaos of the busiest shopping day of the year?

Go prepared!

Plan your day!

Check out the ads, websites, & sale papers of stores you want to hit.  Use your Fold-and-go Organizer to make a list of both the stores you’re going to and the deals you want to try to get. If you need directions or special sale coupons, print them and put them in the interior pocket of the organizer.

For a compact shopping purse, take the Organizing Shoulder Bag or the Pop Crossbody. They both have adjustable shoulder straps and plenty of pockets.  You can easily carry your Fold-And-Go Organizer, cell, and other purse essentials with room for a bottle of water and at least a little chocolate. A shopper’s got to keep her energy up right?

Are you braving the shopping madness with children?

Get the Tote-Ally Awesome Tote and a Shoulder Strap.  You’ll have room for your purse essentials and a bottle of water… and a healthy snack to stave off whining, Band-Aids for booboos, tissues for tears or sneezes, hand sanitizer — because kids touch everything, and your own special Mom-remedies that have worked on your babies from diapers to diplomas.

Do you prefer to shop-lite — carrying only the most essential of essentials with you?

The Wristlet Wallet or Mini On-The-Go Organizer is for you.  Both are small, but can fit your shopping essentials: cash & cards with room for some change and those very, very important gift receipts! Forgo the purse all together and get the Wristlet Strap to dangle your Wristlet Wallet or Mini On-The-Go Organizer close at hand while you fill your cart.

No matter how you choose to shop – remember to put a Large Utility Tote or two in your trunk. After a long day of deal-chasing, you don’t want to make ten trips from the car to the house. Plus, you can tuck a blanket over the contents of your Large Utility Tote and keep prying eyes from sneaking a peak at their presents as you get them inside!
