Galentines is the perfect excuse to spend time catching up with the girls over mimosas, brunch, and fresh blooms! I’ll take any reason to style an event, but when it comes to a fun girls soirée celebrating your friendship, I love to incorporate some of my favorite things!
The Menu: Finally dig through all those to die for recipes you’ve been pinning and go to town! Go for a chic brunch menu with all the fixings or if you’re like me and my tribe and Mexican food is your jam, opt for a nacho bar and serve churros for dessert!
The Decor: Gorgeous flowers set the tone for a colorful party! I used this vibrant bouquet from 1-800-Flowers as my muse for the rest of the decor and it couldn’t have been more perfect for the occasion!
The Activities: Set up a Lip Bar. It’s the perfect time to try out a bold red, or bright pink you’ve been dying to see on! Have fun by layering hues to customize your color!
After a two year search for the perfect peony arrangement, I came across my favorite shade of individual stems and decided to create my own. Why haven’t I thought of this sooner? I picked up a vase, wire cutters and an Acrylic Water Kit. For under $30, in under 30 minutes my ideal arrangement was complete.
Trim individual stems to desired length.
Mix together bottles of Acrylic Water Epoxy Resin and Curing Agent, until clear.
Pour the acrylic water mixture carefully into the vase, to avoid splashing the sides.
Arrange the flowers, and let set for 24 – 48 hours.
In need of a pop of color to my mostly neutral bedroom, I updated my nightstand with a few home “accessories.” A decorative candle stacked upon books of inspiration, and a vivid floral arrangement. To add character, I typed out a fun quote and slid into a coordinating frame.
A few minor changes can make a big difference. The new addition has a personal touch and livens up my space.
