Host a party focused on WorldCrafts home decor products.

Decorate your home with beautiful handmade decor items from around the world and bless the WorldCrafts artisans who make them.

1. Before

  • Choose a party site( church or home) and date.
  • Recruit volunteers to help with your party.
  • Send out invitations to guests.
  • Plan for food at your party. Serve traditional foods from all over the world. Recipes can be found in our recipes section.
  • Plan to have fun activities and play international music. Help your guests learn a little more about WorldCrafts artisans with a short game. Before the party write a brief description (on a sheet of paper, index card, etc.) of several artisan groups or countries and print a copy for each guest. As guests enter, tape a description on each guest’s back. Guests should read each other’s backs and try to describe the country or artisan group that is on each other’s backs without actually naming the country or group. At the end of the party, after learning about each country’s crafts and artisan group, each guest should try to guess which group is on her own back. Each person who guesses correctly may pick a craft from the country that was on her back as a prize.
  • Educate guests on WorldCrafts with the Presenting WorldCrafts and WorldCrafts Story  information.
  • Guests will enjoy having the latest WorldCrafts catalog at your party. You can secure catalogs for your party by downloading it online and making copies or by ordering printed copies for your guests.
  • Create a WorldCrafts interest center combining products, as well as pictures and stories of the artisans.
  • Plan to display products at your party. Download the following to have on hand for guests to read and to display with products:
  • Plan to show videos at your party. You can order the Sustain Me DVD or show free videos in our video section.
  • Plan for product orders. Guests can order online or use an order form. You can print an order form or use the one in the catalog.

2. During

  • Play music, welcome guests, and give guests time to mingle.
  • Introduce the WorldCrafts ministry and offer a few facts. You can use the downloadable resources and videos from the Before section to aid your presentation.
  • Have a share time and activity break.
  • Serve refreshments.
  • Invite guests to take one of the Artisan Biographies, Display Cards, or the World Map as a prayer prompt in the weeks and months ahead.
  • As the home decor items featured in this party beautify our homes, so Christ beautifies the lives of the artisans who are able, through WorldCrafts, to hear the invitation to everlasting life and freedom. Not only are the artisans freed from sin, but learning a trade enables them to find freedom from poverty, as well.
