Last May, I attended a Tupperware party. I know what you’re thinking, BORING – who goes to Tupperware parties anymore? Well, this is hands-down the most entertaining home party I’ve ever attended.
Best Tupperware Party Ever!
Meet Kay Sedia, a cross-dressing Tupperware salesperson that was a hit for about 40 women who attended my friend Maria’s party on Friday night. These parties are all the rage in Orange County – even Frank Mickadeit of the Orange County Register attended one thrown by one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and he was so excited at the prospect he talked it up in his column for a week or two prior. So I wasn’t going to miss this for anything!
It’s been, I don’t know, maybe 8 years since I attended a Tupperware party and it was time to replace some of the items I have. They make quality products – heck, your Tupperware can outlive you – haven’t you seen “vintage” Tupperware at garage sales or containers that your mom still has from your childhood? If anything you replace it because the colors are reminiscent of a bygone era.
Arriving at the party fashionably late due to the necessary pre-party libation (my special concoction for the occasion: pomegranate limeade martinis), Karen and I fit right into the lively group who had been enjoying Maria’s strong-enough-to put-hair-on-your-bosom party punch. My curiosity was piqued when one of the guests told me she saw a chubby guy with a beard arrive earlier and he was upstairs shaving as we spoke. I was skeptical and thought maybe it was an “assistant”.
Kay Sedia: Cross-Dressing Tupperware Salesperson
Well, she was right, and Kay Sedia (get it? a riff on quesadilla), with big hair, bold make-up and a gold apron, introduced herself and kept us laughing with her “chica” flavored, brazen humor injected with off-color product hints and real product numbers to assist us in marking our order forms. Best Tupperware party I’ve ever been to and that girl can sell – I think the party total for our hostess, Maria, was $1,000+. That’s a whole lotta Tupperware!!!
I’m thinking of booking a party on a Friday night in May, and you’re all invited. Kay Sedia comes from Hollywood and I have to guarantee 30 guests for him to make the trip. So let me know by commenting below. Thanks 🙂
P.S. I’m donating most of my “earnings” to Kara Noel whose pantry I recently helped organize and NEEDS Tupperware storage containers for her food goods and all the crafting supplies.
