Party plans move on from days of just Tupperware and make-up

THESE days it is no longer enough to throw a few cheese cubes on a plate and call it a party.

Parties, gatherings and causes for celebrations are increasingly becoming a chance to not only socialise, but also a chance to get a bit of shopping done.

Toowoomba woman Toni Schultz has run the gamut of party planning.

She started in Tupperware but these days she runs adults-only parties.

Ms Schultz is the only Queensland-based representative for the Sin Secret brand.

She sells lotions, potions and gadgets aimed at spicing up couple's love lives.

"I love it," she said.

"I have customers who have been with me for over three-and-a-half years."

The mainstreaming of previously unspoken, sexy topics, (thanks is part to the popular adult novel Fifty Shades of Grey) has done wonders for Ms Schultz's business.

"It went crazy there for a while," she said.

"And it is continuing.

"I am booked out until the end of April.

"Let's just say that some of the items that feature in the book are proving quite popular."

Party plans, as well as proving popular for party hosts, are also popular with people looking to supplement their income.

"Party planning is getting more popular," she said.

"It is an easy way to do your shopping.

"My parties for example cater to people who may not necessarily walk into an adult shop off the street."

The event will showcase 20 different party plans.
