Stella and Dot parties have been compared to Tupperware parties, but I think they deserve a bit more credit. First, it’s a party celebrating jewelry, not food containers. That makes it more fun right off the bat. Second, wine is often involved. OK there’s likely wine at some Tupperware parties, at least I hope so. There’s also typically cheese. Again, there is probably some cheese at Tupperware parties, but it also might be artificial. Lastly, a table covered with myriad jewelry, considered after some wine and in the company of good friends, can lead to the antics you see before you here. It just wouldn’t be as much fun or as pretty putting Tupperware containers on your head. Although that might depend on how much wine you’ve had.
