Hey guys! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend; I can’t believe how quickly February is flying by! I’m eagerly awaiting spring and hope it shows up sooner rather than later because I’m COLD.🥶🤣We are heading to California for a vacation soon and I may not come back.😆If it weren’t for our gorgeous PNW summers I probably wouldn’t but those can’t be beat!
Last week I shared in my Instagram stories about a “Favorite Things Party” I went to with a few friends and I received soooo many DMs saying how fun it sounded and asking for ideas as to what to bring and how to play the “favorite things” game so I’m summing it up here and sharing my favorites for ideas. It was super easy to play and we had so much fun plus you get to go home with a couple awesome items from your friends!
How To Play
I’m sure there are many ways to play the Favorite Things Party Game but this is the way we played. It’s super simple and doesn’t require much time though you could pause between rounds for snacks/drinks/talking to make it take longer if desired.
Our hostess had everyone write their name on a piece of paper and set the item(s) they brought on a table next to the slip of paper with their name so that everyone would know it was from them (you could also skip this so it’s a secret or wrap the presents so it’s a surprise what is inside)! We then wrote our name again on a second piece of paper and put it in a hat or bowl. Designate someone (or take turns) pulling names out of the hat/bowl and whoever’s name is drawn is the person that gets to go pick their prize from the table. You continue drawing names until everyone’s name has been drawn and had a turn choosing an item, then put all the names back in for round 2. Repeat for round 3. Then everyone went around the room saying why they love the item they brought which was fun to hear!
We had each person bring 3 of the same items and played 3 rounds (everyone went home with 3 items) but you could change that number as well.
What To Bring
Set a dollar limit. You could have each person bring one $30 item. Or 2 $20 items. Or we did 3 $5-10 items. Whatever your preference.
I brought this $5 lipgloss that has been a favorite of mine for years (my favorite color is the creme brûlée but I have it in a few shades).
A few of my under $10 favorites.
In the $10 to $20 range I included my favorite teeth whitening pen, makeup eraser cloth that erases all makeup with only water and cosmetic travel bag that has been such a game changer for me when traveling!
And last but not least, a few items I found that I thought would be perfect for the game if you’re wanting $20 to $60 items!🥰
What do you guys think?! Will you be playing the game? What will you bring? I’m excited to hear about your experiences with this so keep me posted!
