Your Own Coconut Bliss Party, and our 2009 Invitees

We have selected our 2009 "A Night of Bliss" invitees and have just shipped off 50 Coconut Bliss "parties-in-a-box" to locations across North America (one evne from Canadia!). Thanks again for all your amazing contributions! A list  is at the end of this post, and you can view them by clicking here.

Even if you can't make it to our party, you can still have your own Night of Bliss party on November 7, or any other night. In fact, you can even throw a "Morning of Bliss" brunch if that excites you, complete with Mimosas and Bloody Marys or fresh waffles!

A Coconut Bliss party is a great opportunity to connect with those you love, break the ice with new friends, and soften the ice with someone you've had tension with. Coconut Bliss has a way of bringing people joyously together. Nothing like melting Bliss to melt barriers between people! This is your party, so create it in whatever way you and your guests will enjoy, be that kirtan and candelight, or celto-punjabi-dub-hop and strobe lights.

Suggestions on Who to Invite:
  • Friends and family who love Coconut Bliss
  • Friends and family who've never even heard of Coconut Bliss
  • People you would like to get to know better (e.g., your favorite checker at your local market)
  • Your next door neighbors
  • Your co-workers (one you like and one you avoid)
  • Children (they help awaken giggles, silliness and pure enjoyment)
  • A neighborhood stray kitty (cats love Coconut Bliss)
Serving Ideas:

We enjoy Coconut Bliss best in glass or ceramic bowls, especially handmade ones. It's fun to have lots of toppings, such as sliced mangoes or bananas, fresh berries, toasted nuts, goji berries, or cacao nibs. In Italy, they like to pour a freshly pulled shot of espresso over vanilla gelato (they call this "affogato"). Get creative!

Activities for Your Party:
  • Invite your guests to feed each other at some point during the party
  • Blindfolded "guess the flavor" contest
  • Create a performance and video it (send us the link!)
  • Extend your bliss by sharing foot or back rubs (or tummy rubs if some have over-indulged)
  • Have a sharing circle about what brings you bliss
  • Twister Bliss
After your party send us links to your photos, videos and stories! If you're on Flickr, you can join our 'photo pool' :

Please share your ideas with us! Leave us your comments. Thanks! :)
