My Favorite Things Party {Easy Entertaining}

If your looking for a good themed party idea you might just want to try this one!!

I love gathering my friends and family for parties all the time. As I mentioned before it’s a perfect opportunity to open your home to your family and friends and people you may have just met!

I first thought of this idea when I saw one of Oprah’s first favorite things shows. I just thought it was a great idea! How cool would it be to hand all of your friends tons of your favorite products that you can’t live without. I knew if I got all my favorite things for my friends I would go BROKE! So I thought instead why not have all my girlfriends bring THEIR favorite thing and have an exchange! Then everyone would leave with a bag full of everyone’s favorite things!

Here are some of the party details and party décor. I’m all about easy entertaining…so here is what I did!

I used a brown paper package theme buy using inexpensive brown bags to load my goodies in. I also made some gift tags using Photoshop and the free Shabby Princess Digital Papers…Two Soon. The yellow and green were perfect for spring. I’m really loving yellow these days:0)

I pulled some flowers from around the house and tagged these flower pots..remember the ones I picked up for 99 cents!

For the table I used coordinating drinks, candy and seasonal fruit! I also made lemon cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes! This table was set up for UNDER 20.00!!!!

For food and munchies. I had all the girls bring over their favorite dish. We had all types of yummy food!!

My favorite thing to everyone was this beautiful BLOOM vinyl provided by Birdie Graphics. I ordered 16 of them at a discounted price for every girl in different colors. They also got a free birdy to practice with:0)
