‘Tis the season of love, and I sure do love my friends!
That’s why I teamed up with my buddies Meagan and Leah (find their blog HERE) to throw a Galentine’s Day party for the sweet ladies in our lives!
Here are some ideas on how to decorate for this special time, as well as what to serve.
Since there’s food involved in this post, let’s get right to it.
On the menu for me and the gals:
- Fresh fruit
- Hash browns
Below are some ideas on how to “style” your food.
Okay cool, now my mouth is watering again.
One of my favorite ways to “do community” with others is over food. Here’s a home decor tip in general: guests will always stay longer (and feel cozier in your home) if you have snacks out at all times. My snack of choice is cookies 😉
For our galentine’s celebration, we chose non-alcoholic drinks. They are one part orange juice (with added pineapple) and one part ICE sparkling water in the flavor kiwi strawberry.
If you want a true mimosa, just add a splash of champagne!
Now, lets talk about the table our gals sat around.
I wanted the table to feel like we were eating in a whimsical forest full of whimsical greenery and whimsical place settings and overall whimsical-ness.
It was so fun decorating with the blush, because that’s not a color I normally put in my home. Special occasions call for special colors!
A big takeaway from orchestrating the details of this event was this:
Have these gatherings more often– Galentine’s Day or otherwise.
Friendship is so important in every season of life, and this was just a small way to show our friends that they are loved.
