Have you ever been to a favorite things party? They are SOOOO much fun, perfect for a girls night in!
Here’s how you can host your own…
Send out invites. I used paperless post because they have pretty designs, and you know, I like the pretty! Make sure you include the details in the invite so there is no confusion for your guests. Speaking of details…
Set the details. Give your guests a price limit or range for their favorite thing. Mine was $25-$30. Some favorite things parties I’ve been to have you bring three of the same item. I decided everyone would just bring one item, and I told them to bring it wrapped.
Share the rules. Have all guests place their wrapped gifts on a table. I wrote out numbers 1-12 (I had 12 total guests) on little squares of paper and had each guest draw a number. We played Dirty Santa style because I think stealing gifts makes it more interesting!
Steal, swap, and share your favorite things. The person who drew number 1 got to choose and unwrap the first gift. Number 2 could either steal number 1’s gift or open a new gift, and so on. We played that a gift was “frozen” or couldn’t be stolen any more after it had been stolen twice. At the end of the game, number 1 got to go again and swap her gift with anyone else’s, even if it was a frozen gift. Like I said, I like to make it more interesting!
