I had the pleasure this past weekend to host a Silk® Soymilk Marvelous Mornings House Party. Now I know what you might be thinking, what exactly are you talking about? Well….

First, I have to take you back to 2010. This was the year that I started house hunting. To keep things short and sweet, I started looking at blog sites to help me learn how to save money. I came across Hip2Save.com and since then, my life has changed in more ways than one. One of the blog posts talked about hosting parties from houseparty.com. Of course I was intrigued and decided to look. How it works is they tell you about upcoming parties which you can apply to host. If chosen, you will be given all the tools you need to host the party, all you need to do is invite family and friends. What’s so great about this is you can get exclusive access to try some new products before anyone else. Who doesn’t like to be a trendsetter?!

Fast forward to present time. I applied and was chosen to host a Silk® Marvelous Mornings House Party. I was seriously excited when I found out. Silk® Soymilk is a product I have tried in the past but really wanted to learn more about, especially their new line of Fruit & Protein drinks. I couldn’t wait to see what I had for my party. This is what my party pack included:

I decided to put together gift bags, which included the crazy straw, coupons, magnets, and recipes from Silk®, for everyone who came to the party.

Everyone who came seemed to really enjoyed the products and seeing how to incorporate Silk® Soymilk into everyday cooking. For most who attended, it was their first time ever trying Silk® and it was a hit! I feel lucky and fortunate to have been able to host this event. I would like to thank Silk® Soymilk and houseparty.com for the opportunity! I hope I am chosen again to host a future party.
