Galentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’m ready to celebrate all the ladies in my life…and decorate with the color pink, to the max!
Of course, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us as well. And while I love spending time with my guy and showing how much I care about him, the women in my life hold such a special place in my heart and were there first. Legitimately, before anyone else. So, I felt like I needed to show my undying love for my BAE’s this year. Plus, would Waleed really appreciate this pink, red and heart explosion of a table setting? Probably not as much 😉
Yummy treats, bubbly cocktails, billowing flowers, hearts on hearts on hearts and the crowning jewel nutella make up this intimate table-top. I’m still working with very little space over here (560 square feet to be exact) so, I kept the Galentine’s festivities on my coffee table and laid comfy pillows all around. It truly makes for a cozy afternoon of laughter and much needed girl time.
To put together this pink beauty, I kept the muss and fuss to a minimum. I went to two of my Toronto favorites for the treats: The Bake Shoppe for the Berry Poptarts and Jelly Modern Donuts for the Pink Sprinkled Vanilla Donuts. Let me tell you, both were EXCELLENT choices. The pancakes are my Red Velvet Pancakes with Coconut Syrup (recipe here). The real crowd pleaser, and quintessential Galentine’s Day bevvies are these Raspberry Rosé Cocktails (recipe here). They’re bubbly, they’re fresh and fruity with hints of rose undertones and seriously hit the spot!
To top off the afternoon, I made red chocolate lip pops for photos ops and tied gold straws to mini rosé bottles for giveaways…because, uh yea, you need to drink more rosé after leaving a brunch where you were just drinking rosé. Pick up the pinkest and reddest roses you can find to make a simple, yet show stopping bouquet to tie the table together and you have yourself a Galentine’s Day to remember.
For all the ladies celebrating ladies this year, I hope this table setting takes your bestie-time up a notch. Happy Galentine’s Day y’all!
