To break in our new house and enjoy the holidays I decided to host a "Favorite Things Party."
I found this idea on Pinterest (I know, is anyone original anymore?) and I thought it would be the perfect Christmas party!
If you have never heard of a favorite things party then here is a breakdown:
1.) Think of your most favorite thing in the world that is under $5
2.) Buy five of that same thing
3.) Invite all your girlies over and tell them to do the same thing
4.)Write your name on 5 slips of paper and put them in a basket when you arrive to the party
5.) Take turns going around the room and telling everyone what your favorite thing is and why
6.)Then draw five names out of the basket and hand out your favorite thing to the five friends you drew!
7.) Keep going until everyone has had a turn and all the names have been drawn
8.)Enjoy all of your new favorite things!
So basically, you bring five of your favorite thing and you get to leave with five new gifts!
Who doesn't like getting five presents at one party?!?
So, I whipped up some invites and had a party!
My loot: a notepad, big sexy root boost/burts bees, hot buttered rum candle, mirror, and a big ol ring!
It was a lot of fun and I ended up with some sweet stuff!
If you are curious what I brought...
I cheated and brought two things because they are both cheap!
#1- Aussie "Freeze It" hairspray
This stuff is magic. I have never found a hairspray that will hold my hair all day and look like there is no hair spray in my hair! This is a serious deal for a thin haired girl like me! This stuff is super strong, but still super light!
#2 Milka Chocolate
This chocolate is straight from heaven!...actually Europe, but they started selling it at Target! Please go out and buy some now. You won't be sorry.
