A galentine’s day party

February 22, 2016

img_2347 There are few things I enjoy more than planning a party.  With a few super talented girlfriends.  Parties filled with sweets & savors and balloon letter banners.  A day of dolling up and drinking champs, snapping Polaroids and reenacting Beyonce’s latest music video.

Ok so I wasn’t reenacting, but I was on the sidelines egging on my friends.

A few weekends ago I helped throw a Galentine’s Day Party [February 13th, the other half of Valentine’s Day when you celebrate your love for your lady friends].  If you didn’t know that was the unofficially embraced definition, you aren’t alone.  I just assumed Galentine’s Day was a girls only Valentine’s Day.  Aka, another reason to throw a partay.

I’ve mentioned my girlfriend Kaitlynn and her pastry talents before, so you can imagine helping her with a party was nothing short of fabulous.  And then there’s Christina, a natural aesthete who rules at all things food & drink and loves a good project as much as me.  We’re talking secret Pinterest-board collaborating and multiple weeknight DIY sessions – a clique who truly speaks my language.  We’ve thrown out the idea of teaming up and starting our own biz – a force to be reckoned with – but for now we’re content spending tons of money spoiling our friends ; )  From donut hole trees to dip-dyed ombre napkins, the details are decadent.  Til the next one.  xo
