What is a tupperware party?

Trashley Trashley
I'm sorry.. this must be a stupid question, but I saw someone ask "Have you ever been to a sex toy party?" on another forum and I reminded myself of tupperware parties.. but what are they? Why would people have a tupperware party? Do you dress up? Are there games?

I'm too uncouth to know these things.

Do you mean an actual tupperware party or the more slang definition of one?

An actual tupperware party is where a woman, usually, invites a tupperware representative to her hope to sell tupperware to her friends. There are sometimes games, but they're usually not particularly exciting.

The only time I've heard it used in slang is for a woman with a penis in 3 orifices of her body at once...

I have always called 3 orifices at one an "Airtight." Never heard it called a Tupperware party.

I've had actual Tupperware parties, the stuff is so expensive and it's kind of a burden on your friends. After one or two, nobody seems to have any money left. I think they are pretty much dying off.

They sell Tupperware at the Mall now, so I guess I was the last of the Tupperware Party generation.

The stuff IS good quality. I have some that is, I shit you not, 25 years old and still in near perfect condition.

You can still actually have the parties...I've seen the reps at little craft fairs and ladies nights out and things like that. Kind of like Avon - you can buy it online but there are still individual sales people.

I love the stuff, especially the plastic tumblers, but it's a little out of the budget sometimes.

Yeah. I LOVE the old "retro" colors from the 60s and 70s, the pastel blues and oranges and pinks and yellows. I sometimes try to buy this old stuff at garage sales. If it breaks, Tupperware will STILL give you a new, free, comparable piece! It is good stuff.

Crash, at a Tupperware party women would sit around in somebody's living room and look at Tupperware and play dumb games like you would at a Baby Shower and win prizes like tiny little Tupperware bowls on keychains and "pickle pickers" (just a set of pincers that you grab pickles out of a jar with) and pasta forks and stuff. Then the woman who "Lead" the party would go around and take orders and try to get everyone to have their own Tupperware party. By the time 3 or 4 of your friends and family had already had one, nobody would want to buy anymore for a while and it would just not work out.

But, it is quality stuff. Just really pricey.

This is true...and I kind of am the next generation...or at least somewhere in the middle I also have a collection of vintage pyrex (the colors were prettier and the stuff lasts FOREVER), depression glass, and some old boontonware - which was named after and manufactured in the town I work in, Boonton NJ. It's melamine and similar to Melmac, but no longer produced. Old kitchen stuff is just better than new kitchen stuff, construction and style wise!

Ah, I love love love love Retro stuff. My dishes are Fiesta, and I collect Milk Glass. I have lusted over Jadite for YEARS! I want Jadite dishes so badly. The prices went UP to unaffordable when Martha Stewart was using them on her show. The prices are starting to come down, so when we get some money (haha, I have no idea when that is going to happen) I would love to get a set of Jadite.

I love the old colors of the Bootonware, I've seen it. Cool stuff.

I love milk glass. And I lust after jadite refrigerator dishes all the time on ebay, but they are so out of my price range. I love the old fluted glass refrigerator dishes (squares and rectangles with flat lids) too, and they're a little more affordable.

Oh, I love the refrigerator dishes also. I have a few, but they chip easily and they are old, and my family is not kind to them. I have them on top of a shelf, because using them was destroying them, with my dorky family. They are not micro or dishwasher friendly. But, I LOVE them, also. I'd love to do an entire kitchen in Retro Kitch.

Mine's close. There are certain things I like new, but all my bowls, baking dishes, etc. are vintage. My hand mixer is even a Hamilton Beach in harvest gold with the original box that says 'Now with 4 speeds!' on it LOL. I have full sets of dessert dishes and things in depression glass, and the things I can't or don't want to get vintage, I have vintage-styled. Lotsa chrome, and my kitchen aid mixer is majestic yellow

I used to be a Tupperware lady. I'm just not the sales type though. Expensive product, but I love it!

My mom used to be a tupperware lady, we've got soooo much around the house now it's almost ridiculous. I'm slowly (even tho it's been like, 5 years) starting to come around to the new lid design.

What?? That sounds ridiculous. The real kind.
Very 50's I guess?

And the slang... I'm literally jaw on the floor astounded. I'll just be putting that on my bucket list, yaknow hahaha

Thank you!

I've never heard of the slang either. A Tupperware party is literally where a Tupperware sales rep comes and has a bunch of women come and view the products to buy them. They do this with many products. I go to designer purse parties on occasion. Yes, they usually have food but no games.
