3rd Annual Re-Gift Party

  • January 4 · 4:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The ReGift Parties the last two years were so much fun that we've decided to do it again!

You know that gift you received, the one that when you opened in front of your family you smiled and said "Oh my, just what I wanted!" but what you were really thinking was, "Does Aunt Sally REALLY expect me to use this??"

It might be a knick knack or a kitchen item, a piece of jewelry, a sweater, or something that "Santa" brought to you that know you will never use or wear.

This party will give you a chance to unload that gift onto someone else and replace it with something you'd really like. Or hopefully like, maybe. You may get something really wonderful that one of the other ladies just didn't have a need for, or you may end up replacing it with something equally as useless or unappealing, but one thing is for sure, we will all have lots of laughs in the process!

We will be doing this White Elephant style.  We will draw numbers and the first one will choose, then we'll go from there.  If there is something that you want and someone got to it before you, you may take it from them. Be sure to bring your gifts wrapped, part of the fun is the mystery of not knowing what's inside!

If you happen to love all the gifts you receive this year, you are welcome to bring something you received in previous years but never used. We aren't looking for junk, or used items, we are looking for things that you may not want but someone else "might" want.







SALAD BAR: We will be serving a Salad Bar for dinner. Everyone is asked to bring something that can go in or on a salad, or a unique salad. A couple different kinds of homemade salad dressing would be nice too. Please post what you are bringing with your RSVP so we get a good variety. Ice Tea and water will be available, feel free to bring any other beverages.

 

 

Cash Alternative: Since we typically get more food than we need at our events, perhaps some ladies would prefer to make a $5.00 cash donation to our "Charity Fund" in lieu of bringing a food contribution? Please indicate in the comment section below if this is what you wish to do.

 

*************************************************

Note: This event takes place in a private home. In order to attend events in private homes, you must first attend an event in a public venue such as one of our monthly coffees or Happy Hours.

    I will bring a kale salad. It's a new recipe that we tried for Thanksgiving and it's actually worth sharing!

  • Pat F.

    I know there are ladies waiting so I am giving up my spot. 2 reasons, one and foremost, my mom isn't doing well and I'm counting my days with her, the other reason is I did not receive any Christmas gifts so I have nothing to re-gift. Hope everyone has a great time. See you next time.
