FRIDAY FRIDAY GOTTA GET DOWN ON FRIDAY.
Anyway, Valentine’s Day is a little over a week away and I’ve got all things LOVE on my mind – and by that I mean finishing my incredibly creative gift for Timothy, buying champagne, and most importantly – planning my 2nd Annual Galentine’s Brunch with all the lovely “land mermaids” in my life! ♥︎
You don’t know Galentine’s? You must not watch Parks and Rec.. (Side note: I don’t either but I heard about the concept and became rightfully obsessed. Leslie Knope for President.)
Yup – a breakfast/brunch/whatever meal you like best to celebrate the girls in your life! Seeing that mimosas are my spirit animal, I obviously went with brunch – but honestly, all that matters is that you plan a time to get all your lady pals in one room to bond, talk about boys and get a little buzzed while eating pancakes. #goals
I’m not sharing my exact menu, decoration ideas or anything else – too many of my girlfriends read this blog and I want it to be a surprise! But here’s some awesome inspiration and my “must haves” for throwing your own Galentine’s celebration…
No party is complete without adorable decor. The men in my life would argue differently and say no party is complete without a keg… but c’mon. I’ve got all the heart eyes for that XO banner! And no brunch is complete without a mimosa bar – and I KNOW no one’s gonna fight me on that declaration. I’m thinking about putting out blood orange juice and pink lemonade alongside regular OJ this year – thoughts?
Also pretty obsessed with the menu part, because obviously us galpals gotta eat. Quiche, pancakes, french toast, scrambled eggs, sandwiches, bacon, sandwiches (I had to include it Kell – I don’t care if no one else understands) – I’ve already starting my shopping list! And last but not least, GOODIES. I went with nail polish for last year’s favor and I can’t wait to share my gift for this year, along with a full recap and probably too many photos : )
Some might say I go overboard. To them I say:
Do you celebrate Galentine’s? I’d love to see your party inspiration!
