Real Life:: Tupperware ParTAY!

What do you get when you add plastic kitchen goods, a dozen ladies and ten bottles of champagne?

A hoot of a Tupperware party! (Oh, and I know what you WERE thinking, ahem!)

Last Saturday a bunch of wonderful ladies came over to my house for a Tupperware party. Yup.  Tupperware, and it was so much darn fun!  My gal pals showed up wearing their best vintage aprons and even gloves (thank you Miss Karen) and listened with delight about the miracles of plastic while sipping mimosa after bellini after vodka gimlet.  Oh, that was such a blast!

But that had to do with our wonderful Tupperware hostess, the completely fabulous Ms. Karen Finlay.  Now, you might recall Karen, who guest blogged here about her love of the musical Annie.  But this wonderful lady also sells Tupperware.  And her Tupperware team includes the creme de la creme of Tupperware sales people including such faaaabulous drag queens named Dixie Liongate, Aunt Barbara and Danny Pintauro from Who’s the Boss. (Note — Karen hasn’t met him, but she’s  sure he’s very nice!)

It is more of a comedy routine than a Tupperware spiel.  I swear, Karen should have a brick wall behind her–she is comedy gold! And I gotta say, I was totally impressed!  Tupperware products scored the best out of 30+ products in a Good Housekeeping microwave test and contain no BPA or phthalates.  Which makes this mama breathe a sigh of relief.

And it was so much fun to see the ladies. Like our girl Katie who brought a peach for the Peach! J’adore!

Speaking of the Peach, she had a great time too and sported an orange vintage apron to match her Crocs. She looked more like Mario Batali than Sally Draper–I love it!

Such fun for a Saturday afternoon! Have you ever attended a Tupperware party? Do you remember your Mom going to one or throwing one? Did you grow up with Tupperware?

    We had SO much Tupperware growing up, and although I never attended any parties, my mom definitely hit a few. Although I doubt any of them were as smashingly adorable as yours! Still so sad I couldn’t make it. Probably for the best, though, as we only have so much room for awesome containers…

      I fully respect that! And please know that you were missed, lady!

    YES! The Karen Tupperware Party experience is not to be missed! I’m so sad I wasn’t there for this. I went to Dame Rusty’s tupperware party (the first time I actually met Miss Karen (“Sparkleneeley”) for the first time in person!) and it was lerve at first site. She is so funny….and YES the tupperware is actually pretty darn good too!!

    Can we also just talk about Peach as Mario Batalli???? I love it!!! What a little doll!

    • Dottie says

      Heh! I’m considering adding Mario Batali to the Halloween costume suggestions, although Honeybadger is still at the top of my list!

      Oh, don’t think I won’t lady!

      • Karen says

        Yes, let’s! Next time I won’t drink so much and I will actually be able to place an order.

    Awesome post. Love your gloves, Ms. Karen, but I can’t believe you didn’t buy anything. Drunk while shopping always means I spend waaay too much :)

  7. Eileen says

    I can’t believe we only went thru ten bottlesof champagne!

    • Dottie says

      Well, I didn’t include the half bottle of vodka that was finished…

  8. Karen says

    That was soooo much fun — thanks for having me! All the ladies were so fabulous, as were their outfits. And big thanks to the amaaaazing co-hostess, Miss Peach!
