For My Friend Katrina’s birthday she wanted to have a party celebrating her friends.

That is how the Brown paper packages party came to life.

You see, her  friends are included in her favorite things ;)

True to form, I was in charge of the printables…

We enjoyed lovely brown bagged picnics

With stickers on the front of the bags which said:

“Brown Paper Packages

Tied Up With String

These are a few of my

favorite things!”

We filled each bag with

personal caprese & chicken salad sandwiches which were

wrapped in red paper, tied with jute, and sealed with a name label,

Bags of chips

Bottled waters

Wrapped chocolates

And we each received our own veggie cup & a cd mix of Katrina’s favorite songs.

The cd cover says:

“When the dog bites, when the bee stings,

when I’m feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things

and then I don’t feel so bad!”

We enjoyed our picnics in casual form on blankets spread under a tree  in the back yard.

The Picnic was followed by a lovely stroll through a local garden.

It was a delightful evening.

If you would like to create your own Favorite Things Party, here are the downloads:


Brown Paper Pkgs

Chicken Labels

Caprese Labels

CD Covers

We printed Everything onto Avery Labels from Walmart using their free online templates

except for the Cd cover which we printed on card-stock.

I think this party would look great on some beautiful worn picnic tables

as well but I am a sucker for those at anytime because they are some of my favorite things. ;)

What, dear friends, are some of your favorite things?
