2nd Annual Scarf Exchange

I love wearing scarves!
Last year when I read a post from Shay at Mix & Match Mama & Mix and Match Family about the scarf exchange that her and her friends have every year, I knew I wanted to host one as well!
Coffee or lunch, good friends, good conversations, and a new scarf to start off the Fall with!
Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?

You can read about the 1st scarf exchange here.

This year I was able to get a couple more ladies to join the fun, which meant we needed to change the venue. I loved hosting last year's exchange at Starbucks, but unfortunately there is not enough room for more than 4 of us.
So this year we decided to add lunch and meet at Buca di beppo :)
Pasta, salad, bread, wine...Oh my!
It was delicious!
After eating and catching up it was time to pick scarves!

We drew numbers, lined up the bags, and were ready to go.

My friend Missy loved the black and white infinity scarf I received after her and since she was the last steal of the day she went for it! lol!
All in all we had a great time getting to see each other and shared lots of laughs as well :)
While I love all my friends dearly, sometimes getting get together with friends from elementary or high school just takes you right back to those days. Crazy that those days were almost 20 years ago!!!

Super excited that I will be hosting another scarf exchange with some of my local friends as well :)
Can't wait until October!

Do you participate in a scarf exchange?
Where is your favorite place to purchase new scarves?
I am always on the hunt for a good scarf!
Please send me any suggestions you may have :)
