Christmas Favorite Things Party

A couple of weeks ago I threw a Christmas Favorite Things Party for my girlfriends.  It was a lot of fun!  I didn’t take many photos as I had hoped to.  So, these are a compilation of digital SLR, iPhone, and point & shoot photos.

The set up prior to the party:

I had everyone bring a bottle of wine but served Christmas Sangria also.  It was delic!

Getting together with my girlfriends for some wine, snacks, and laughs was a lot of fun.  The icing on the cake were the presents.  How it worked was each person brought 3 of the same presents ranging between $10-15 each.  Then, each person wrote their names 3 times and put them in 3 different jars.  Then they drew a name out of those same jars making sure they didn’t get their own.  Those were the people they gave their 3 gifts to.

I went to two different favorite things parties within a week and here were some of the items gifted:

– Nailpolish

– Capri Blue Candle and a Reusable Starbucks Cup

– Taylor Swift CD and red lipstick

– Ornament Glasses

– A Merry Christmas Glitter Banner

– Wine

– Recipe Binder

– Jewelry

– Rodan & Fields Sunless Tanner

– Journals

– Wrapping Supplies

and much more!  We hope to make this an annual tradition!
