Afternoon Picnic Party
It's as Simple as 1-2-3!
Everyone loves a good picnic,
and it's the perfect time of year to have one. Gather up your friends to put food on WorldCrafts artisans' tables by hosting a Picnic Party!
Choose a party site and date (church or home).
Send invitations to guests, asking them to bring at least one nonperishable item for a food basket.
Create a WorldCrafts interest center combining products, as well as pictures and stories of the artisans.
Consider ordering the Fall 2013 Hostess Sample Set [H133119] ($99.99). Or create your own collection of products to sell at the event.
You can download our Fall/Winter 2013-14 WorldCrafts catalog and make copies or call 1-800-968-7301 to order printed copies.
Print artisan bios to display with the products or have on hand for guests to read. Also print country place cards to set up with the products.
Order the Sustain Me DVD [H104125] ($9.99).
Print an order form or use one from the catalog.
Decorate for a picnic with blankets and baskets.
Introduce the WorldCrafts ministry by watching the
Sustain Me DVD (or download the introduction PDF for talking points).
Serve light dishes perfect for a picnic: finger sandwiches, fresh fruit, chocolate chip cookies, ice tea, lemonade, etc. Or make an international dish from our recipe section.
Fill a basket (or baskets) with guests' nonperishables to donate to a local food bank or family in need. Make the connection that just as you have put food on a local family's table, buying WorldCrafts puts food on a family's table.
Invite the guests to take one of the artisan bio sheets to use as a prayer prompt during the weeks and months ahead.
Encourage party attendees that they can bless WorldCrafts artisans both physically and spiritually by purchasing their products
Take product orders.
Reminder: WorldCrafts products are handmade, not mass-produced, so quantities are limited.
Collect payment and complete one order form. Important: Please send only
one check for the total party order. Mail to P. O. Box 830711, Birmingham, AL
If you bought some items in advance and they were not purchased at the
event, return them, if you wish, to WorldCrafts for full credit. (Address: 100

however, that the Fall 2013 Hostess Sample Setis not returnable.
