How to Host a Galentine’s Day

Popping a Bottle of Champagne

Valentine’s Day for me has always been about friends and family, not about a fancy dinner at an overcrowded restaurant, chocolates, and flowers.  Since I could remember, my Mom has always made my siblings and I Valentine’s day treats complete with a card.  It’s one of the best memories that I have and even as a grown woman, it is something I look forward to every year.

I was so excited to host a Galentine’s Day get together with two of my favorite blogger gals Jamie and Rachael for some champagne, donuts, and Valentine’s Day card making.  It was indeed a glam and fabulous get together with friends.  In lieu of the usual girls’ night out or happy hour, a Sunday afternoon brunch for some old fashioned girl talk and crafts.  Here’s how to host a fab soiree with your gal pals.

Food & Drink

A fabulous brunch or get together doesn’t have to be complicated nor overdone.  A simple  pairing of champagne, donuts, and bright berries makes any gal ga-ga.  Sophia Champagne is always a good choice, with a mixture of pink glazed and powdered sugar donuts.

What to Wear

Part of the fun is dressing the part for a girls only Valentine’s Day celebration.  Pink and red hues are an obvious choice, but I always love to add some sparkle.  My pink and red rule applies to everything: clothes and make-up. You know I love a good bold lip and a bright red pout is an absolute must on the day devoted to love.

The Galentine Crafting

I’m a scrapbooking diva, I must admit, so I love a good crafting session.  My sisters and I have been long time crafters (we love glitter) and I always like making a handmade card or gift for a special occasion.  Jamie, Rachael, and I spent the afternoon after brunching making Valentines for our sweeties, friends, and family.  We used embellishments, fancy paper, and doilies to make some sweet cards.

    Those valentine’s turned out super cute. What a fun day!

    I need to get back into scrapbooking . Since I stopped my business ( http://www.bisous.biz) ( I used to manufacture scrapbooking supplies) I hardly ever do it. This makes me miss it.
