Favorite things


The other night a small group of friends came over for a favorites party. Have you heard of these? Everyone brings five of their favorite thing (under $5, or homemade) and after putting your name five times into a bowl, you draw five names of other people - and you bring their favorite thing home with you. So you come with five of your favorite, and go home with five new favorites. Get it?

So much fun. I love learning details like this about friends. A sampling of the favorite things people shared: a great bar of dark chocolate plus organic chapstick; mini colored enamel colanders; bags of pink lady apples; homemade lemon sugar scrub; stationary for writing thank you notes; packets of homemade cards with a great pen (nothing is better than writing with a good one!); and basil + tomato plants with an amazing recipe for a summer no-cook spaghetti sauce (which I can't wait to try).


I brought - 5 small packets of loose leaf herbal tea from Teavana, packaged in muslin bags with a tinier bag of sugar cubes inside. (The citrus lavender is my most favorite flavor but the wild orange blossom is pretty great too).

This sounds like SO much fun! Could we do one again when I move back??? Pretty please? I am sure, if you were the hostess, it was just as delightful as all the goodies you got.
I will never forget the "end of the school year party" you had and we danced the night away on your patio! You are one great hostess!

Wow. So on the same page. Planning one for next month before a friend moves (she hosts one of these at Christmastime every year, but I thought summer would be a blast too!). Your group of friends sound so creative and fun!

I was just thinking about doing this with a group of friends. We have been together a lot lately for "40th" birthday parties and share tales related to our favorite things. This will definitely be a great reason to get together again!

What a fab idea! I am going to have to think of an occasion to have a party now! Possibly a great way to get to know people when I go off to uni?
