Here are some fun and simple party ideas for any party! I threw a Favorite Things Party for all of my closest friends due to our family moving from Utah to Las Vegas in a week and also being obsessed with throwing parties and being surrounded by the girls I love. I also wanted to do something that incorporated my fun blog for favorite things! It was so fun- I plan on making this an annual festivity! 

Here was the simple text I sent out (being strapped for time due to the move) I can send you this template if you would like! Just message me. This is so cute for birthday parties or any occasion via text if you are strapped for time! 


Follow my IG for more details on the pictures 
Or feel free to ask any questions and I will get back to you!! @brittsfavthings



Party Details:
Cake- part of my wedding cake from years ago (yes this part is fake haha) 
Frames- ikea $.99 spray painted gold- my fav gold spray paint on my IG 
White table fringe- Dear Lizzie $20 and so worth it. I'm saving it for every party! 

 

Drink cart gifted to me- spray painted gold
Plastic martini cups and straws- local party supply store. These just give it that extra girlie flare. You can also add a strawberry to the glass also. I added a rasberry under each pink straw to keep the straw in place once the drinks were added. Thanks to my fabulous mom for this last minute idea!
Favorite lemonade- trader joes 
Silver tin bucket for drinks- target
Flowers always make everything more girly and fun! These are 3 diff color pinks from Costco 


Added glitter to my water jars and feathers into my flowers
This stand was gifted from my sweet mother in law and I created the template myself. 

Favorite cupcakes- sweet tooth fairy
Favorite sugar cookies- smart cookie
Everyone had a little notebook to write all of their fav things in from the party. There was so much going on that there was no way you could remember them all! This was a fun way to keep track! 
Notebook- pink silver and gold (how perfect) 3 for $1 at the dollar store. Add ribbon and the cute template and wa-lah!
I made feather pens dipped in gold paint and gold sparkles for the notebooks too!

 Here are the supplies for the glitter feather pens. Martha Stuart gold metallic paint, gold glitter, white feathers, white floral tape and any old pens or pencils.




And then wrap the floral tape starting from the top to secure the pencil/pen and wrap down and then back up. So so easy! 

This was a fun part where everyone wrote down their favorite category. I had to read them afterwards due to time but these were so funny and made me laugh and run to te store to purchase some must have favorites! 
I can email this template if needed along with any other templates! xxoo
Everyone had to write their names once and drop into the bucket for the gifting part of the party. Who Evers name you drew - that was who got one of your gifts! 

Boas make things way more girlie! Add them to any table setting for that extra girlie touch! 
My hubby made this humongous chalkboard out of ply wood and a modern frame we sprayed white. 
Pink peach and metallic gold fringe banner was so easy to create. Check out previous blog posts for exact details. It was only $4 to make! 

I also made the 'FAV THINGS' banner with gold paper that I had to hand draw backwards to create the individual letters, then cut them out and strung them on a gold string. You could do this same thing but with foam core and an exacto knife if you want a thicker look! 

This gift picture doesn't even do it justice! There were so many presents- it felt like a huge bday party for everyone! Everyone's fav things included an arrangement of fitness things to food to beauty products and hair products! Wish I could remember them all! They were all so amazing! 
You can check the invite at the top for the specific gift instructions. I also had the girls bring their favorite recipe to bring. I plan on blogging those yummy recipes as well! Check back soon. 

There were def some things I would do differently though- I think i invited too many people so we couldn't get through all the activities like I wanted to. (Fav things cards & recipes) It was really loud too so we couldn't all hear the fav things to write them down in our books due to all the excitement from everyone! Haha (which Is a fun problem to have) I had everyone bring a recipe to share and trade but due to time- I will just have to put them on my blog instead! 

Thank you to all who came to say goodbye to me and party! I had a blast with each and everyone one of you party animals! Such a blessing to be surrounded by such  beautiful girls inside and outside! xxoo


More pics of all my cute friends coming soon! Check back if u came and want the pics from the party!
