My Favorite Things Party

One of the fastest growing party trends right now is the favorite things exchange – guests bring five of their favorite things to swap with their fellow partygoers, and everyone leaves with a unique combination of hand-picked awesomeness from their friends.

Our friend Jenny Dixon of Craft That Party loves them too, which is why she’s having a favorite things party “swag bag” contest right now! One lucky person will win a whole bag of her favorite things, valued at over $400.

To enter the contest, head on over to Craft That Party – the entry form for this giveaway is at the bottom of the linked page, and is open through November 20, 2014. More details about the party can also be seen on ediTORIal by Tori Spelling

Keep reading here to check out a few pics from Jenny’s party and learn more about her favorite things!


Jenny’s party looked amazing, as usual. Pink, turquoise, and black made for a stunning and stylish color scheme. Chevron decorations and party supplies always give parties a nice pop, and we love the tissue paper balls on the table, too.


Black quatrefoil patterned plates also complement everything nicely, as did that decorative table garland from Piggy Bank Parties.


With varying shades of pink, black, and white fabrics, it tied the décor together gorgeously!


Here’s our contribution to Jenny’s swag bag – a Birthday Express gift card that you can use to spread the party trend among your friends! (While we’re at it, a huge thanks to Jen for considering our party supplies some of her favorite things!)


Two more of Jenny’s favorite things: handmade heart-shaped soap from Sunbasil Garden and an “I Love Pretty Things” mug from A Blissful Nest (we certainly do, too).


Sweet sweets are necessary for parties of all kinds. These cake pops are from Samantha’s Sweets and are every bit as delicious as they look.


Every guest had a great time swapping and exchanging gifts with each other! The favorite things party was a huge hit for sure.
