After that I think the Avon lady was ringing our doorbell. Sometime in that same era she discovered Tupperware. I think that bottom green bowl in the upper left corner, is still at my Dad's house.
This was our mother's Tupperware. Ours, or at least, mine, was the orange, yellow and bright blue heavy duty kind that warped in the dishwasher. ( Now, it doesn't) My girls carried those Sippy cups around for years. I bought the majority of my Tupperware in the 1970s and it's gone now. I dish washered it when I wasn't supposed to. Oops....
Here's a sick Allison with blankets, her pillow, kitty and her Tupperware sippy.
Into the 1980's I discovered a few other home party companies.
I can't tell you how many of these votive light globes I bought. I had green and gold and clear I believe.
in the 1980s, my sister had a couple of Copper Parties and after searching Google again, I still could not find a home party company.
I do know these are votive candle holders, but there were punch cups like this that would actually frost on the outside when we used them for a favorite 80's punch. You could only hold onto them by wrapping them in a napkin first..
The punch I used to do at Blueberry Festival time. In that large green Tupperware bowl would go
1 large can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 large can frozen lemonade concentrate
Here you could add either frozen limeade, pineapple or other flavor
1 full Fifth of Vodka (that was the only liquid)
It would get "almost" frozen but the booze would not let it freeze solid. You would put a couple scoops of that in the copper cups and then pour 7 Up over the top.
Did that a few times !
In there somewhere too, was Princess House
I must not have bought anything. I know my sister has had these coffee cups forever. She uses them everyday. I've never seen her with any other kind of coffee cup.
I'm not much of a crystal buyer evidently, but I am a candle buyer.
I still have a couple of those mint green candle boxes waiting to be opened and burned.
And that brings me to one last party.
I love this pizza stone. Mine is not so clean and pretty. The think with these stones is, you can't wash them. They would absorb the soapy water. So I scrap like a mad woman. And, I am scrapping with that little brown square of plastic I had to buy, just for that purpose.
I don't think I've seen the end of home parties. I do know I've seen the end of me hosting them.
