I stumbled upon the idea of a “Favorite Things Party” on Pinterest and knew immediately that I wanted to host one.
A favorite things party is where you get together with friends and gift each other your favorite things. I invited a small group of friends over and asked them each to bring 5 of their favorite thing (under $5).
-Fresh Flowers from Trader Joe’s
-A beautiful package of goodies from Michael’s Craft Store (Pencil case, fancy straws, paint brushes, measuring spoons…)
-Norwex face cleansing cloth and a See’s sucker
I choose a Proverbs 31 notepad from Emily Ley and the BEST pen by Sharpie.
For some added fun, I set up a cookie decorating station. It was my first try with “Royal Icing” and let’s just say that I was grateful for the grace my friends showed me. We had a wonderful time laughing, being messy and decorating with glitter sprinkles.
The best part of the evening wasn’t the scrumptious cookies we decorated or the new treasures we went home. The most delightful part was the authentic conversations we had.
After gifts were exchanged and the frosting washed from our hands, we sat in the living room talking, sharing what God is doing in our life, challenges we are facing and how we are growing. It was such an wonderful and encouraging evening. I truly count each one of these women among my favorite things (corny but SO true).
