I celebrated turning THIRTY FIVE on February 21st and I didn't want yet another birthday to pass me by with me looking back and wishing I would have done something fun to celebrate!! So, this year I decided to embrace 35 and throw myself a party...a "Favorite Things" party!! Have you seen these throughout blog-land? I have wanted to to do this for over a year now and was going to try it during Christmas time, but things got too busy. I figured I would save it for my birthday instead! I had SUCH A BLAST with my girlfriends!!
How it works:
- Everyone brings their favorite thing (anything you like...your favorite lip gloss, gift wrapping supply, kitchen tool, treat, plant, etc ~ something you might use on a daily basis that you love or can't live without!) GET CREATIVE ~ the possibilities are endless!
- It can't cost more than $4 for your item of choice (try to get as close to that mark as possible). Bring 5 of the same thing (I tried to keep the cost at $20 total...us mamas are all on a budget, you know!) **Many parties that I saw online said $6 for each item, but I wanted to keep the cost a little lower!
- You can bring your gift "as is" from the store or you can tie a bow around it, put it in a baggie, or be as creative as you want. Just be sure it can be seen and not wrapped completely. We all want to see your favorite item!
- Everyone will go home with 5 of someone else's favorite things...which might actually become YOUR favorite things!!
