Brittany and I have seen this idea on a few blogs and we'd been waiting for the perfect time to host a Favorite Things party. We started planning it back in April and we were so excited when it was finally time for the party. Brittany hosted it in her new place and it was perfect. We laughed because the party started at 6:30 but several of the Mom's started calling around 5:30 asking if it was ok if they came early. Everyone needed a night away.
The way the party works is everyone chooses a favorite thing and brings 5 of that item. (We chose 5 so it wouldn't be too expensive we also set the price limit around $5. You can choose any numbers you'd like.) When each guest arrives they put their name in a bowl 5 times. Then each guest goes around and tells what they brought and they choose 5 names out of the bowl and those people get their item. I think the hardest part for me was narrowing down what to bring. Each guest also brought their favorite appetizer.
Signs of Sophie made coffee mugs for each guest with the party logo on one side and their name on the other. Several people sent pictures the next morning of them having their coffee in their new mugs. I loved it!
