Favorite Things Party

Last Wednesday, I announced that I was participating in the Pinterest Challenge. While Sherry finished her clothespin chandy, Lana did a chalkboard fridge, and Katie completed her awesome mirror, I have yet to finish mine. That is until tonight. If you remember back, my Pinterest challenge was to host a Favorite Things Party.

My party is happening tonight and I'm so excited! I invited seven of my girlfriends over and we are about to enjoy a night of food and fun. I sent out invitations to each girl using an awesome site called Paperless Post. They are fully customizable and the site is very easy to navigate. They also have adorable stationery sets, even designer ones like Kate Spade and Stella & Dot.

Update: Thank you all so much for stopping by from Pinterest. The Favorite Things Party was so much fun and I can't wait to host another one. If you have any questions, just leave a comment below or send me an e-mail!

Here's how it went...Everyone filled out 5 name tags and they were placed inside. Then whoever brought an item, drew five names and those were the lucky gals to receive that person's favorite item. Since there more than five girls in attendance, not everyone received every item.

I bought the brown paper bags at Michael's (2 packs of five) and made the tags using Microsoft Word. I then printed them out, glued them onto cardstock, and added a ribbon. The bags were easy to make but a great way for guests to take home their new goodies!

As for my favorite item, I put together this Iced Latte kit. I've always been a huge fan of the Iced Caramel lattes at Starbucks, but recently started making my own at home. So each guest went home with a mini bottle of Torani syrup and a recipe to make their own Iced Lattes.
