My McNuggets/Shrek House Party!

Are you familiar with HouseParty.com? I was chosen to host my second party for them this weekend.
House Party is a website that organizes party packs that are supplied by companies that want to promote their products to the public. You can apply to host a party, agreeing to plan a party and invite a minimum number of guests, and if you are chosen, House Party ships you a package filled with fun supplies for the party, sent to you for free and provided by the companies that the party is themed around.

For example, I blogged about the first House Party I was chosen to host a while back. It was a Fisher Price party, and it included some pretty awesome free Fisher Price toys. I hosted a "playdate" party for my toddler daughter and her friends, and it was a blast. And all of the larger Fisher Price toys were ours to keep. The package also included smaller toys for our guests to take home as well.

This week, I received the supplies for the second House Party that I will be hosting this weekend: A Shrek Forever After/ McDonald's McNuggets party. This party package is FULL of some pretty awesome freebies, and my 3 daughters were so excited to open the FedEx box with me when it arrived. Included in the package was:

  • 1 $75 McDonalds Gift Card
  • 1 Shrek the Third DVD
  • 1 McDonald’s Stage M CD
  • 1 Shrek Forever After Movie Poster
  • 1 Shrek-themed Happy Meal box
  • 2 Shrek collectible glasses (We got "Donkey" and "Shrek")
  • 2 sets Shrek-themed plates (each set includes 8 pieces)
  • 2 sets Shrek-themed napkins (each set includes 8 pieces)
  • 2 sets Shrek-themed cups (each set includes 8 pieces)
  • 2 sets Shrek-themed invites (each set includes 8 pieces)
  • 20 McNuggets of Fun Coin Booklets
  • 2 full sets Shrek Happy Meal toys (each set includes 8 toys)
  • 15 Shrek Happy Meal watches (four varieties of watches)
  • 15 Free Snack Size McFlurry coupons
  • 15 Free Minute Maid Apple Juice coupons.
We'll be throwing our "Shrek/McNuggets" themed party this Saturday, and we are so excited.

If you haven't applied to host your own House Party yet, take a look at the website and see if there are any available to apply for that interest you. There's no selling involved, and it's a great way to get together with friends and score some pretty nice (free!) stuff!
