Favorite Things List for 2022

Even though the first Thursday in December happened to be the 1st, it felt like the perfect way to kick off the season! (I don't think I've ever had the party this early.) But, hosting this party is one of my favorite things!

This year, guests were asked to bring a charcuterie board of their liking. Eight people participated. We had an appetizer board, a fruit board, a Trader Joe's board, a Whipped Feta board, a Tex Mex name a few. We started the night with food and then everyone voted on their favorite charcuterie board. The winner was the Tex Mex board. The winner received a snowman charcuterie board to add to her collection.

We played a game where people shared some of their favorites....things like favorite gas station, favorite place to look at Christmas lights, favorite gift card to receive, favorite holiday tradition, etc. There was a point system to add or subtract points based on answers. We had prizes too! Then it was time for the gift exchange. I'm including links for you to see the items. However, this is not a "price buster" better prices may be available at other locations. Items without links are items I couldn't find online. The price range for the gifts this year was around $13. Some items were purchased during sales and may retail now for over $13. Also, some items were grouped together to make the combined total.

We had a lot of fun sharing our favorite things. And since there was a little charcuterie board fun mixed in, each guest walked away with their own charcuterie Christmas tree board with a star bowl. (Surprisingly, these boards were found at Walmart and the star bowls are from Amazon.)

Now the season can officially begin!

Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things....

Oh, and since I got so many questions about my headband, this link will take you there! It's massively on sale right now!
