A favorite things themed Christmas Party is a blast! It’s a party that will have all your guests wanting and waiting for your next Favorite Things Christmas Party. Refresh your annual Christmas party with this theme instead of the traditional secret Santa, cookie exchange, ornament exchange, or white elephant.
A Favorite Things Party is a gift exchange in which each guest brings their “favorite things” to exchange. Everyone leaves with a bag full of each other’s favorites. You can set a price limit so the guests know what price range to stay in. The item could be something you make or buy. The item could be your favorite lipstick, nail polish, candle, tea towel ect… For example, six guest are coming to the party. You could make six of your favorite Christmas room sprays as your favorite thing to give away to each guest. Everyone shares why they love their item and then each guest leaves with 6 items in their bag to take home.
I was inspired to create this party theme but could not find what I was envisioning for the party to be. I wanted it to look classy but with bright colors. I also wanted to include the famous, “My Favorite Things” song. So, since I could not find it…I created it.
I created these templates to throw a Favorite Things themed Christmas party! I print all the images on card stock and place them in frames. I used black 8×10 frames. I put the frames around the table setting with the food.
I displayed gift boxes and bags to add extra decor and hung the printable ornaments with clear string. I used a large sewing needle to thread the ornaments onto the clear string. Once I hung the ornaments, I secured them with a small piece of tape so you could only see the printed side of the ornament.
The place cards I created can be used for the table setting or for the gift table to identify the items brought by the guests. The place cards can be folded in half. I created gift bags for everyone to fill and take home with their favorite things. I simply added ribbon and taped on the favorite things gift tag.
