Favorite Things Party

Monday, November 13, 2017

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

Over the weekend I hosted my annual exchange party with friends, but this year I changed it up a bit.
For the last 4 or 5 years we have done a scarf exchange, but this year we exchanged some of our favorite beauty items instead!

So here's the details...
Each person brings 5 of the same item
I set a limit of $7-10 per item
The theme this year was Favorite Beauty Item

There were 10 of us this year, but we still opted to meet out for dinner at ABC Kitchen.
Once we ordered we started the exchange.
I had printed some little questionnaires that I had each of the ladies fill out for me while we were waiting to order.
I read the favorites off and the rest of the ladies had to guess who it was.
It was fun since not everyone knows each other that well :)

Once we figured out who it was, that person drew 5 names from a bag and gave their favorite item(s) to those ladies.
We continued this until everyone had 5 new items to bring home with them :)

Now onto what everyone brought!
I picked up these super cute cosmetic bags from Etsy and had all the ladies names printed on them as favors.

And here is the what my Favorite beauty item looked like...

Nail polish on my nails always makes me feel pulled together.
And this shade is my absolute favorite, go-to polish for years!
I get so many questions about it on Instagram, Facebook, etc. that I knew I had to share with my friends!
It is Take It Outside by Essie.
Honestly, it is the perfect neutral!

There were so many bags I couldn't get them all in the picture!

Hi Lindsay! :)

And here is what each of the ladies brought home with them...

Sally Hansen nail polish

Overall I think it turned out great!
I am already thinking about the theme for the next one :)
You could easily host this party any time of the year too!

Do you participate in an exchange with your friends at the holidays or throughout the year?
