What is a favorite things party?
Consider hosting a favorite things party with a theme: favorite gardening things, favorite things to read, someone elses favorite things (to re-gift things after the holidays)
What to bring to a favorite things party?
You could increase the limit to $15, $20 and even $25 if you’d like. The higher the limit, the nicer the gifts can be – but also keep in mind it’s an expensive time of year & it may be difficult for guests to shell out loads of extra money. The point of the party, for me, is getting together, not the items.
The gifts should all be the same (i.e. if your favorite thing is candles, you’ll bring three different candles). However, it’s fun to add variety by changing scents or colors when possible. Love candles but have a handful of favorite scents? Bring three different ones! Blankets happen to be your favorite? How about three different colors, patterns or prints! Add a little variety while keeping the gifts the same!
How do you choose who gets your gifts?
Then the guests will also write thier name once and add it to a seperate bowl. The bowl with the name in it once is for who goes in what order to draw 3 names out of the second bowl. The names drawn out of the second bowl are for what items each guest recieves.
The first time your item is chosen, you get to describe to everyone what it is and why you love it.
How much does it cost to host a favorite things party?
I almost never spend over $50. That includes my 3 items, printing, paper goods, and drinks.
For the printables:
- These are a small touch that will make a big impact on your party & lucky for you all the hard work has been done! I’m providing all the party printables for FREE to you! Each printable is sized for 8.5×11
- You’ll only need one copy of most everything, and duplicates thank you tags depending on the number of guests you have.
- Acrylic frames are a nice touch, if you have them on hand. I found mine at the Dollar Store.
