Raindrops on Roses . . . Whiskers on Kittens . . .

Bright cooper kettles . . . 
and warm woolen mittens . . . 
Brown paper packages tied up with string . . .
These are a few of my favorite things.

Last night I had a few of my favorite people over for a "Favorite Things" party.
I had seen a picture from one and had seen the idea floating around on pinterest, so I decided to give it 
a try.  

Some people have been asking how things went, so here is the low down. . .
I invited my friends and asked them to bring
1.  their favorite dish
2.  5 of their favorite item (1 item that is your favorite - bring 5).

When they arrived, they were greeted with my favorite pattern right now - chevron - in some 
of my favorite colors!!!!

They placed their favorite foods on the table and then filled out 5 of these cards that would
be used to determine who would get what later on in the night.

I made each guest one of these bags to hold their goodies from the night. 

We all enjoyed such wonderful food and fellowship.
Then, we unveiled our favorite things and who would get them.
I got caught up in the action, so some of the pictures aren't the best.

LB came to the party.  She was so excited about it!
She brought $5 Sonic cards!
Bridget brought Rosebud Salve for 5 lucky guests.
Ashley stressed the most about her gift but did a great job!
She incorporated her favorite things into the gift wrap as well!
She brought coupon holders, coupons, car air freshener, etc.
Cherri brought Bath & Body Works Hand Soap!!! 
Janet shared her favorite thing - shopping for accessories - at her new
favorite store - Rue 21.  She brought the cutest bracelet's!!!!
Melissa brought Wickles pickle relish and pepper rings!!!
She did not think everyone would appreciate it, but we did!!!
Melanie shared her favorite thing - plants!!!
She brought the prettiest flowers - Lantana.
Sasha brought Ulta nail polish and chapstick!  They were such cute colors!
Everyone who got them LOVED them!!
After someone would unveil their favorite thing, they would draw 5 slips of paper (making sure it wasn't their own name or someone's name twice).  Those 5 people would get that person's favorite thing.  So, everyone left with 5 different items. 
Everyone had such a great time that we are already planning to have another one - this time with a theme!! The possibilities are just endless with what you could do with this party and your closest friends!!!
