Favorite Things Party

You know you’re itching to throw a party… this one was a TOTAL success!

Some friends of mine told me about this Oprah’s Favorite Things party idea, with the premise that we all get ideas for great products from our girlfriends. So the three of us threw a party to do just that. We each invited four people and told each guest to bring a friend {my favorite way to get a good mix of people at a party}. One of the hosts, Kim, told me about Paperlesspost.com for the invitations which proved to be super convenient and adorable; all sorts of digital stationary, fonts and colors to use, as well as reporting of which guests are attending and which guests are bringing friends.

Each guest brought their favorite thing x3. For example, one guest works in the sun and shared her ultimate favorite sunscreen for the smell and shimmer. She brought three bottles of the sunscreen to share. As each guest arrived, they received a number that would ultimately be the order in which they got to pick their favorite thing. We went through the numbers three times, each guest picking one item each time through. We had reusable bags lined up for each guest to pick so they could take home their favorite things in style!

Here’s a list of the things everyone brought. It was definitely a good mix of gifts and everyone was excited to try something new!

  1. Homemade Necklaces       
  2. Orgins “Piece of Mind” serum
  3. “European Wax Center” Gift Certificate
  4. Donna Karen Cashmere Mist Deodorant
  5. Nalgene bottles w/ Luna Bars & Crystal Light
  6. Jillian Michaels Workout DVD
  7. Benefit Blush: Benetint
  8. Eucerin Moisturizer & Lindt Chocolate
  9. L’occitane Hand Lotion
  10. Pinkies Nail Salon Gift Certificate
  11. The best Tupperware “Rubber Maid Premier
  12. Real Simple Magazine
  13. Paul Mitchell Hairspray
  14. Hawaiian Tropical Sunscreen: Shimmer Effect
  15. Forever 21 Jewelry
  16. “East of Eden” Book
  17. Nalgene bottles & she recommends the attachment

For this party, I used real dishes because it was a ladie’s-night-out “heels required” party. Seemed only right to have some fabulous dinnerware. The crystal plates were my mom’s from when she was younger and they are the perfect party plates. The silverware is both from my kitchen as well as some very cool pieces picked up at the Goodwill for 15 cents each. The goblets were mostly found at garage sales, with a few borrowed mixed in. I spent no more than $4 on the purchased goblets, which is easily how much I could have spent on throw-aways, but now I have dishes for the next party too!

Nutella-swirled cupcakes-in-a-jar were a hit. Vacuum sealed cupcakes in quilted jelly jars were the perfect compliment to the food. Recipe found here.

    Super cute! I also totally advocate using real dishes/silverware/glasses/etc. when hosting parties. Even though it’s more to clean up later, disposable dishware is such a waste of money and resources. Good for you!

    Everything is really cute. I love the YUM decoration. Great party concept! :)

    Such a fun night! I’m serious about making it an annual thing! If we did it around the holidays, it could be a good way to get ideas for gifts!

  10. ohbrooke said: April 25, 2012 at 6:54 am

    @casi – those were from Marshalls and TJ Maxx… $1 each!

    I think it would be a great idea for military wives that just moved to a new base, either to get to know the other wives in the unit or new nieghbors… Its so hard thinking of a good way to introduce yourself and make friends!!!
