Our next event will be our Christmas party on Tuesday, December 10, 1:00-3:00p, at the home of Cyndi and Jack Riehle. Their address is 5280 CR 125, Wildwood, FL 34785. We will have some sweet and savory snacks.

This will be a “My Favorite Things” party theme. Below is how you come prepared to participate:

  1. Think of an item you absolutely love that is $7.00 in value.

  2. Bring 3 of that SAME ITEM wrapped INDIVIDUALLY (3 gifts total, but three of the exact same gift) in Christmas paper or a gift bag etc. NO NAMES on the gifts, please.

  3. When you arrive at the party with your gifts, there will be a table set up to put your gifts on. Jan will help you with that and she will write your name on 3 pieces of paper that will be thrown into a bowl from which your name will be drawn.

  4. When it is your turn to participate in the “MY Favorite Things,” you will simply get up and draw 3 names out of the bowl.

  5. You will give your 3 gifts to the 3 people whose name you drew.

  6. As they are opening your gift, you may tell why it is one of your favorite things.

  7. Everyone that participates will go home with 3 gifts. (That is why you bring 3 gifts individually wrapped)

  8. Have fun and enjoy thinking of your favorite things you love!

Frequently asked questions:

Q. Can I still come to the party if I don’t want to participate?
A. Absolutely!

Q. What if I want to make my gift, can I make a gift?
A. Yes, however you want to make sure it is around $7.00 in value. We want to be as fair as possible across the board.

Q. Does the gift have to be Christmas or can I bring anything?
A. The PARTY is a Christmas theme, but not the GIFTS. It can be ANYTHING, but it has to be YOUR favorite thing! It just needs to be wrapped or in a gift bag for Christmas.

Q. Can you give me an example of how this works?
A. Yes! One of my favorite things is a kitchen tomato knife. I absolutely love it! It cost $7.00. I purchase 3 kitchen tomato knives and I wrap them each individually in Christmas paper or Christmas gift bag. I bring all 3 gifts/knives to the party with NO NAME on it. When it is my turn to draw, I will draw 3 names to receive “My Favorite Thing” (my knife). I will get up and draw their names and hand them my gifts that are wrapped. While they are opening the gift, I will share with the group what I brought and why it's my favorite thing. The ladies who received it will get to take my gift home as well as 2 other gifts that others will bring and draw their names.

Q. How much will I be spending?
A. Your total cost for the 3 items would be $21.00. (A total from the item being worth $7.00.)

Q. What if mine cost more with tax or a little less, is that ok?
A. Yes, that is fine!

Q. I need a ride, who do I call?
A. Barb Nesselrotte 352-303-3385
