Friday night was our churches annual favorite things party. I was so excited to finally be able to attend this event after missing the first two years.
A favorite things party is very simple and so much fun at Christmas time.
Here are the rules:
Everyone brings 5 wrapped presents of their favorite thing(s). They can either be the same, or they can be different. Choose a spending limit per present (usually $5-10). Upon arrival each guest puts their name in a bowl 5 times. Then one at a time the guests take turns sharing their things, picking names from the bowl and giving out their presents. Everyone leaves home with 5 different presents.
Here is what I took to the party with me.
I can a lot so I included some of my favorite things I make:
Blueberry Lemon Jam
Jalapeno Pepper Jelly
The other two gifts were English Breakfast Tea and lotion and a divine dark chocolate almond sea salt bar and lotion.
My wrapping was pretty fancy, ha. Brown paper packages, it totally works right?!
Ready to go!
It was so much fun spending the evening with these lovely ladies. We snacked and chatted then started the party.
I came home with a bag full of goodies.
Foot soak and fuzzy socks
2 boxes of Andes mints
Silicone baking mat and a bookmark
A very soft black and white infinity scarf
This party was so much fun. I am already looking forward to going again next year.
Have you been to a favorite things party before?
If not, I would HIGHLY recommend a favorite things party for a girls night with friends, you will not be disappointed.
