Favorite Things Party 2018 {RECAP}

Every year I ask myself, “How in the world are we going to top last year’s Favorite Things Party?!” Well the team at I-Drive 360, Home of the Orlando Eye stepped up and truly made this year’s event a jaw-dropper. They spared no expense, and WE. WERE. SPOILED! Our evening started with a ride on the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye, including a Champagne Flight!

We were then treated to an amazing array of food from Tapa Toro and beverages from Tin Roof!


Next we were whisked away on a scavenger hunt on the I-Drive 360 property, including Madame Tussauds, SEALIFE Orlando, and of course the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye! (To see all of our adventures, follow the #OMBFavoriteThings2018 hashtag on Twitter!)


Next we returned to some sweets and treats from The Sugar Factory and a live Flamenco dancer performance from Tapa Toro!!


Next you’ll find our list of Favorite Things. I truly love spoiling my team with goodies, and this year we partnered with some amazing businesses and products, including many right here in Central Florida! This Favorite Things event is a small way I can show my contributors how much I value and appreciate them. I also want to say a HUGE thank you to all of our Favorite Things businesses and the team at I-Drive 360! This night will truly be difficult to top!
