Since none of us are as rich as Oprah, we could not afford to give every person one of our favorite things ... but we could gift one person $10 worth of our favorite goodies! Along with their favorite appetizer or drink to share, the ladies were instructed to bring a gift bag with $10 worth of their favorite items. Could have been 1 - $10 item, or 20 - .50 items - completely up to them! Think favorite lotion/lip gloss/beauty product, bottle of wine, snack/candy, craft or party supplies, accessory - the possibilities are endless!
After we ate our faces off, we played a little game to decide who would get who's bag and it was a big hit! Especially if you have a large group of ladies that do not all know each other very well. Here's how to do it:
Striped Paper Straws ($2 + shipping, Etsy), travel size Hempz Lotion ($5.28 + free shipping, Amazon Prime), Metallic Silver Sharpies ($2.50, Walmart), and a bar of Dove Dark Chocolate.

15 goody bags with LOTS of favorite things!!
It was not only fun getting to know something silly or strange about each girl, I loved seeing what each girl interpreted what her favorite things were!
Some more pictures from the party. It's me, so of course I had to throw up a few decorations. But with picture frames, kraft wrapping paper and gift bags & mason jars laying around, I only had to cough up $4.99 for a bushel of baby's breath! Not bad! :)

S'mores Cookies (my little recipe tweak: just buy a chocolate chip cookie mix from the store - no need to make your own dough from scratch - they taste ah-mazing even when you cheat!!)
Frank's Buffalo Chicken Dip - my all-time favorite! There was not a bite leftover, so I'm guessing the girls liked it too! :) I prefer to make mine in a pie/lg quiche plate, but I'm sure it tastes just as good in this bowl above!!
