Favorite Things Party - Holiday Edition

A couple of weeks ago my friend Mel and I put on our second favorite things party...this one was a "Holiday Edition".  For anyone not familiar with a favorite things party here are the details...10 girls (or really however many you want), and each person chooses their favorite thing valued at $6ish, and buys 5 of them.  Then when you arrive at the party each person writes their name on 5 slips of paper and put them in the jar.  You go around and each person presents their fav thing, and then draws 5 names of people who will get their item!  So you come with 5 of your own, and leave with 5 different peoples items...SO FUN!!!  And also each person brings their fav snack!  Here are some of the pictures.

Chocolate & Sprinkle Rimmed hot chocolate glasses

Hot Chocolate bar toppings
