Hosting a Galentines Soirée 

Brought to you by 1-800-Flowers.

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!

Etsy is filled with such fun and creative finds! Last year I made some glitter clothespins, and have consistently used them as food label stands at all my soirées. I took it up a notch lately and added pushpins and magnets to glam up my office and fridge. They’re so great to hang photos, invitations, business cards, and inspiration. They add a chic touch to a classroom, home or office and can be used as pretty decor at weddings, bridal and baby showers, birthday and graduation parties to hang photos and banners. A dose of glam and glitter adds a chic touch to just about anything!

Nail Trend {Chunky Glitter}

 

I’m loving the glitter nail trend, and this Spring texture is key. Chunky glitter is amplified (think back to your Caboodle days) and I’m obsessing over the textured sparkle.

 

While textured nails like the caviar or sequin manicure are a hot trend, the eye-catching sparkle of this Urban Outfitters polish (spicy) is long-lasting.
