Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things. While I love Maria’s version I have to say that I think Oprah has a pretty good list too. No one went home with cars or flat screen televisions, but we did have an amazing night and discovered some amazing new goodies. My amazing mom came into town for the weekend and I couldn’t have pulled this Favorite Things Party off without her. She is truly amazing!
So if you aren’t going home with a new car like on Opera, how does this work you might be asking yourself. Everyone puts their own spin on it, but here is what we did. Each women chose a “favorite thing” this could be a food, drink, product, anything. It needed to cost under $10 and they brought 4 of them to the party ready to exchange.
We put everyone’s name in a bowl 4 times, each of us shared what our favorite thing was and why, we then drew 4 names out of the bowl and those 4 women each took home one of the favorite things we brought. Everyone goes home with 4 new items!
Let the party planning begin! I had so much fun decorating everything from candles, silver and party favors with this adorable washi tape.
Glamed up the Mason Jar Drink Glasses with that washi tape.
My mom setting up all of the yummy food (just realized that she dressed in party colors!)
Look at all of those amazing packages! Everyone brought such different items.
We had delicious food, a few glasses of wine and laughed for hours! The mister headed out as the ladies arrived. I think her knew it was about to get loud with a house full of women.
On to the goodies! These are the 4 amazing items I got to keep at the end of the night.
Not only is this perfect for my crazy fly-aways, but it works wonders on my cuticle & nails.
I have already made 2 London Fog Drinks and I am hooked! I love this new drink.
I will be using this folding shopping bag this weekend while I shop till I drop at The Queen Bee Market.
I already have this hand poured candle in my kitchen, it smells delicious!
I know you want to start planning your party right now! What item would you bring if you had come to my favorite things party this weekend? Why is it one of your favorites?
