Last week I had a group of girlfriends over for a “Favorite Things Party”; I got the idea off of Pinterest (my newest obsession). Each participant brought 5 of their favorite things, and then after a random name draw each girl leaves with 5 different things that the other partipants brought. This was such a fun party! The menu included: slow-cooked macaroni and cheese, caprese skewers, cilantro peanut slaw, peanut butter cookies, & raspberries with chocolate chips in the middle. YUM!

It was such a fun night! I served French 75s, which were delicious and potent.
Here is some of the loot that was given out during the party:
Hell or High Watermelon beer brewed by 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco
Dark Kiss lotion by Bath & Body Works
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Not pictured: my awesome photographer friend Tara Brown gave out some of her favorite prints, and other friends brought bulbs taken right out of her garden, Japanese bath salts straight from Japan, and a recipe for shirred eggs with two ramekin dishes.
I gave out a kit containing a blank canvas, some Martha Stewart multi-surface paint, glitter and paintbrush. We really did have SO much fun- I think this might end up being in the annual party rotation. :)
