On Saturday night, My friend Monick and I headed south to Carlsbad, for a fun girls night out. My awesome friends from eleVate hosted a Favorite Things Party at the adorable The Printed Palette. It was my first time going to a Favorite Things Party, and definitely not my last. So fun to see how creative everyone is, all the awesome talent and thought that goes into every gift.
the gist: You bring 5 gifts, range $5-$7. Each gift does not have to have 5 components, its just 5 of the same gift. You then draw 5 names and those 5 people get your 5 gifts. So when you leave, you have 5 different gifts. Does that even make sense?
Here are the gifts I gave
My gifts were packaged in these fun boxes, and inside were my FAVORITE things, and colors!
Mint EOS lip balm, Red Essie Nail Polish and a fun Gold Bow Bobby Pin
We had a scrumptious dinner, mingled, shopped at the adorable shop and had a little craft with glitter and glue
I scored some pretty awesome gifts, these were my 5 gifts I went home with
And if that wasn’t enough, the sweetest, most amazing and talented owner of The Printed Palette hosted a giveaway raffle. Each of us got 2 raffle tickets, and had chances to win more tickets. I needed up with 10 tickets by the time the raffle started.
Confession: I NEVER win anything….
Never say never, I was so blessed that evening! I won 3 times, and I won the grand prize of a $100 Gift Certificate to The Printed Palette, pinch me now, I’m still in shock. I also won this print I’ve been wanting to buy since she brought it to her shop for my nautical bathroom makeover, so when I won it, I about died! literally!
Okay sorry for the picture overload, but it was such an amazing night, I went home with this one of a kind printed swag bag filled with goodies, including a $10 gift certificate to my shop, I thought it was only fair to sponsor the event with swag goodies!
