How to Throw a Galentine’s Day Brunch

How To Throw a Galentine's Day Brunch

Call me a cheeseball, but I think Valentine’s Day is just the best. While I’ll celebrate love any day of the year, I think taking one day (or one month in my case) to spoil your loved ones is so, so great. Plus, my favorite color is pink, sooo…

Who all watches Parks & Rec here? 🙋 Thanks to this hilarious show, a semi-new phenomenon called Galentine’s Day has been making its rounds through women’s apartments everywhere. This holiday typically includes mimosas, some kind of sweet treat (or 7), lots of laughs, and a tooooon of pics. The best part? You don’t have to be single to partake. That’s right! As Leslie Knope said,

“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we just come and kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”

Well, who would I be if I didn’t throw a Galentine’s Day soiree of my own? I sure did throw a party, and I’m going to show you how I did it using the vast amount of Valentine’s Day supplies Paper Source has to offer. Read on, lady loves!

Step One: Invite your gal pals over, and have everyone bring something. Potlucks are fun! I personally made a frittata and Funfetti cupcakes. Am I the only person who prefers out-of-the-box Funfetti cupcakes to gourmet ones?

I used this striped wrapping paper as a table cover… looks fancy, huh?! 

Step Two: Set the scene. Galentine’s Day should look a lot like Valentine’s Day – lots of hearts and pink and red and cupcakes.

To make this poster, I used Rifle Paper Co wrapping paper and a brush pen to write on it. I framed it with a cheap poster frame from Michaels and it fit perfectly! Fully aware that I messed up the quote, by the way. Oops.

Step Three: Pop that bubbly and cut that frittata! Everyone’s happier when they have a bit of champagne in them (and that is a scientific fact).
