My aunts, cousins, and Grandma started a really fun tradition last year--a Favorite Things Party. If you've never been to one before there's really nothing to it. All you do is bring your favorite appetizer or dessert and a wrapped gift of one of your favorite things (our limit was $30). After you're done eating your yummy treats, everyone draws a number to find out the order of picking presents. Then each person picks a gift one at a time, opens it, and the person who brought it explains why it's one of their favorite things. You could also play this like the White Elephant game where you can steal the gift 2 times but we just kept what we opened. We like to hold our Favorite Things Party in January when there's really nothing else to look forward to. It was such a fun girls night out!
The "favorite things" this year were books, water bottles, a space heater, paintings, hair products, make up, clothes, cleaning supplies, chocolate, racquetball racket, and more!
That's my awesome grandma on the left sporting the sweatband! She hosted the party at her house and as always was an excellent hostess!!
So if you're looking for something fun to do with your girlfriends or family try a "Favorite Things Party." A wonderful time will be had by all!
