My friend, Melissa, recently threw a Pinterest recipe party and
our article this week comes from her!
Ever pin all those yummy recipes on Pinterest but never have
time to get to ALL of them!? Here's a solution.
Host a Pinterest Recipe Party! Each guest brings and shares
a Pinterest recipe they've been dying to try. The only catch
is that the recipe must be one the guests have never made
before and they must bring it no matter if it turns out or not. The
idea lets us see if the pin is good or not, just like if we made it
ourselves at home. It's hilarious when someone brings a pin
recipe that turns out horrible! And it saves everyone a ton of
time and money knowing not to try it themselves.
How it works: The hostess creates an event on Facebook and
invites her guests. Each guest RSVPs and comments with the
link from Pinterest of the recipe they are bringing. Other
guests can click on links to see what each other are bringing so
there are no duplicates, making sure there is a good variety of
food and/or drinks. After the party, guests can then repin the
recipes of their liking.
Guest not on Pinterest? Not a problem. They would just
bring a recipe they've been wanting to try and they can always
email the recipe if requested. They would still RSVP on
Facebook with what they're bringing so others know not to bring
something similar. Guest not on Facebook? They would just
let the hostess know what they are bringing and they can always
email the recipe if requested.
The hostess provides silverware, plates, napkins and beverages
if needed. There's no need for the guest to bring a large
amount of food because people just do sampling!
