host a party
Now more than ever, it’s important to stay connected, even from a distance.
Make a Difference
The more you and your friends shop, the more Artisans you support, the more donations your party makes, and the more hope you spread!
Who doesn’t love free gifts? (Of course, you do!) As a hostess, you can earn free product, half off items and even give back to families around the world!
You get to decide how to gather together, even from a distance.
Gather at Home
Invite the girls over for a fun evening of jewelry, scarves and home decor! Discover beautiful pieces and stories about the beautiful women who make them. Relax and enjoy light refreshments and comforting conversation.
Imagine sipping your favorite beverage, connecting with friends, and changing lives in leggings! Having a social gathering allows you to invite guests from near and far. We make ordering online a breeze and ship all purchases directly to your guests!
You won’t need to clean or prepare a thing! Pass a few Lookbooks around the office, the gym, the break room or wherever! Collect orders and your Partner can do the rest!
Gather on the Go!
Get the girls together at a restaurant, winery, or even at the park! Pass around a Lookbook and they can shop from your Party Link right from their phones, iPads or computers!

How many people should I invite?
Gather your way! A few friends, or a room full or family it’s up to you! Just remember, the more orders your gathering generates, the more FREE product and givebacks you will earn!
Also, over inviting is key! Not everyone will be able to make it, so invite more than you expect to come!
Does the Gathering need to be at my home?
- at a park
- in a restaurant
- in a community clubhouse
- in the office
- in the breakroom
- outside patio
Can I invite out-of-town friends?
Absolutely! Your Partner will provide you with a digital Party Link that you can share easily by text or mail! All orders placed through that link will be credited to your party, whether they actually attend the party or not!
What type of snacks should I prepare?
Keep it simple & gather your way! Here are some ideas that we love:
- Cheese & Crackers
- Fruit or Veggie Tray
- Crackers and Brie
- Wine & Cheese Ba
How will the orders be delivered to my guests?
Don’t worry, you don’t have to worry about sorting, bagging and distributing orders! ALL Trades of Hope orders are shipped directly to your guests! Phewwww! We know that’s a relief! The only order you’ll get will be your Hostess Order full of your free and half priced fair trade goodies!
How long do Trades of Hope parties usually last?
Each gathering will be different, based on your Partner and the guests that attend. Gatherings can typically be 1 – 2.5 hours on average.
What other tips can you offer me?
- Make a list and start inviting! *over inviting is key!
- Take a Lookbook to work, to the gym or to play group! Collect outside orders from those who can’t come to the actual party.
- Send reminder texts to your invite list a week before and another one a day or two before the party!
- Keep your refreshments simple! Relax, have fun!
