How to Throw A Favorite Things Party

Favorite ThingsFavoriteThings Paper GoodsFavoriteThingsSwagBagFavoriteThingsParty2

Have you heard of a “Favorite Things” Party?  I hadn’t, and when Stephanie of Celebrations & Sweet Creations sent us her Favorite Things party and the background behind it, I got so excited to share it with you all as well!  The premise behind the party is for each guest to bring 5 of their favorite can’t live without items to share with the other guests.  For Stephanie’s party, all items had to be under $6, and they ranged from Lip Gloss, Kitchen Utensils, to a gift card to your favorite ice cream spot.

How the Party Works: When the guests arrive at the party, each guest will write their name on 5 slips of paper, and put in a fishbowl.  Then each guest will pick 5 slips of paper out of the bowl (being careful to not pick themselves!) to hold on to for when they introduce their favorite things.  One by one they will show the group their favorite item, and then one of the names they pulled will get to take that item home!

It definitely is a fun twist on a Girl’s Night Out, complete with sweets to eat and wine of course!
