Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. - Favorite Things Party

So! First things first...can I go ahead and tell y'all I only have ONE more sleep til we close on our new house?!?!?! Yay!!! This has been SUCH a loooonnnnggg process (since May) so knowing all our hard work and stress is about to pay off is a huge sigh of relief! To say we're stoked would {obviously} be the understatment of the year!!

And because I think you all deserve a little sneaky peek at the final product:
This may or may not be my favorite part of the entire house. ;)

Ok..lets get down to business for todays rendition of...

Saw it.
Pinned it.
Did it! 

I've had this little gem pinned for quite some time now so it's only right that I actually make it happen this year:

HOW TO: Favorite Things Party

What you'll need:
Group of girlfriends
Your favorite happy hour spot
A few glasses of vino
Chips & Salsa
Multiples of the same gift (i.e.: we have 8 in our group so I bought 7 of the same gifts)

What you do:

1. Get a group of girlfriends (perhaps ones that you like) & meet up at your "regular" happy hour spot.

2. Think of something that you absolutely love under a certain price range. (Ours was $5-$10) Go out and buy everyone in your group one of your "favorite thing" and wrap it.
I chose those little knitted flower head bands! Iono what they're officially called.

3. Find a cute tag template from none other than Pinterest, itself, and create personalized bags for everyone to take their gifts home in.

3. Meet up at "said" happy hour spot, partake in several glasses of wine and a few baskets of chips/salsa while each girl goes around passing our her favorite "thing", explaining why she loves it so much.

4. Once everyone has passed out their favorite things, bask in all your new prezzies!








5. Enjoy the goods!
Knit headband - bracelet - EOS lotion - lip balm - B12 - nail file - It's a 10 - body wash - Prosecco - nail polish

6. And then...you finish the evening shoving your face with cupcakes and macaroons!

I mean, how perfect. Get all your shopping done for all your girlfriends in one stop. That's what I'm talkin' 'bout JACK.

The end.
