Favorite Things Party

Favorite Things Party!!

This was so much fun last year that we are doing it again!!  At our Favorite Things party, we will learn more about each other by sharing our favorite things with another member of the group. Think of something you absolutely love, something you use every day, something that brings you great happiness, then bring one like it to our Favorite Things party to share with the group.

HOW IT WORKS: Each person goes out and purchases one of their Favorite Things. YES, you purchase a new one, you don't have to give up your own favorite item!!!! It can be any category - home decor, make-up, food, clothing, anything. The value should be between $20-$25.

Please bring your item in a gift bag so it is concealed until it is presented to the group. Everyone will go home with somebody else's Favorite Thing.

Our favorite "Party Hostess Peggy" has agreed to host this event again this year. She hosted our first Favorite Thing party and it was a huge hit!

FOOD: Please bring your Favorite Appetizer and/or Favorite Beverage. Remember, this should be your Favorite, be prepared to explain why it's your Favorite!

 

Note: This party will be held in a private home. You must first attend an event in a public place (such as a monthly coffee or Happy Hour) before attending an event in a private home.

    This idea for a party was great! Probably one of the most fun meetups I have been to in a long time. Peggy was a terrific hostess and I managed to get one of the most unique, exciting gifts.Thanks for opening up your home to us all.

    5 stars! I enjoyed the company, food and gift exchanged very much. Being new in town, this group helps elivate the homesick feelings that arise, especially around this time of year. Thank you to all the Organizers for putting on a great event!

    Girls - we are going to have a great time. :) I remember last year.... Everyone brought such neat things that they couldn't live with out. Some were funny, some made us pretty and some were useful kitchen and bath things. Christmas shopping for others became so easy after the party with all the great ideas. Just follow your heart - think about what YOU like ...Im sure we will too. Please call me if you have any questions[masked] Love and Light ! Peggy

    Last time we did this the gifts where supppose to be between $20-$25 but what I recivied was some thing that could not have cost more then $5.00 I wasvery disppointed because the favorite thing I gave away was $25 plus I think you need to be firm on this that all favorite things have to be at least $20.00 and make it firm.Sorry I am being verbal about this but it can happen again to some other member .Ladies lets be fair here
