I had everyone pick a number to determine the order of how we would present our favorite things. One at a time, then, each girl got up, briefly introduced her item, and then drew four names to present the item to.
Admittedly, my friends were all a bit skeptical at first, but it was such a good time. It was really fun to see the wide variety of what people brought: everything from a bottle of wine to drink stakes to shawls to earrings to beauty products (spray on lotion, Bath and Body Works stuff, mascara). We all got really into each item and it felt super exciting to hear your name called to get an item!
I gave each girl a little bag to take her new goodies home in
And in each bag, I also put a jar of Funfetti Dip (one of my favorite things!) and some mini graham crackers for dipping as a thank you for putting up with me and my constant party-throwing!
In the end, we all had such a good time that we discussed making it an annual thing or even doing another one in a different season because so many people's item seemed to be summer motivated. If you're looking for a fun reason to get a bunch of girlfriends together, I highly recommend a Favorite Things party. Good food, good wine, good friends, and new goodies to take home at the end of the night...does it get any better?!?
And I want you to be able to have all this fun too! Favorite things party in a box and specific elements from this party are now available in my Etsy shop. Click here to find them!
