I decided to write what I've done here as a reference!
That way it can be easy to find for those of you who would like to do this with your friends, women's ministry groups, co-workers, or family! :)
Here are the instructions I sent out to the ladies. I used email, but you could make a cute paper invitation too for this! :)
My Favorite Things Party1. Choose 1 of your most favorite things that costs $5 or less
This can be your best kept secret cleaning product, beauty product, special treat...anything that is YOUR favorite.
2. Buy 3 of that SAME EXACT ITEM. (Shouldn't cost you more than $15 - and it will not be 3 different things…they will all 3 be the same exact item; for example, same color/flavor of chapstick, same color of socks, same kind of candy!)
3. Bring those 3 EXACT SAME ITEMS to the party. They don't have to be wrapped because you'll be showing everyone what it is!
4. You'll be going home with 3 new items that could become your new favorites *But you’ll be arriving with 3 of the exact same thing!!!
When the ladies arrive at the party, they place their items on a table for display, and then I have them write their name on 3 different slips of paper and put all 3 pieces of paper in a basket.
Then I'll have everyone draw a number from a different cup, and we go in order of the number drawn.
Each woman stands up and explains what her item is and why it is her favorite, then she immediately pulls 3 names from the basket to give it to!
We will have a few get-togethers before our next BIG event - that will be this summer! It’s our Summer White Party…I’ll have details on that soon!
Please email me or leave a comment here if you have any questions! I am happy to help you host your own party!! It is definitely something our ladies look forward to!
