I was watching Parks and Recreation when I was introduced to the idea of Galentine’s Day and I was all like, where has this been all my life?! What is Galentine’s Day, you ask? In the words of Leslie Knope, “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 just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!”
As it turns out, Galentine’s Day is now an actual thing, and I could not be more excited. You all know how much I love to have an excuse to party. So I have put together some of my essentials for hosting a perfect Galentine’s Day.
WHAT TO WEAR:
This is simple – dress code: pink and/or red. Just tell your gals to be festive and have fun with it. To see some dress ideas, check out my first of the month faves post here!
WHAT TO EAT:
I love breakfast foods, so this is exciting for me. Here are a few breakfast recipes I’ve rounded up from Pinterest:
Pancake Skewers with Fresh Berries via Nugget Market Signature Recipes
Breakfast Crescent Dogs via Key Ingredient
Donut Hole Kabobs via Woman Getting Married
Hash Brown Egg Nests via The Cooking Jar
WHAT TO DRINK:
Two words: MIMOSA BAR. You can never fail with champagne in my opinion. Here’s a how-to on setting up a mimosa bar via Smarty Had a Party Blog. And we all know how much I love a festive cocktail, so I’ve also found a few cocktail (and mocktail) recipes for you to concoct:
Raspberry Rose Cocktail via Camille Styles
Cherubs Cup Cocktail via Style Me Pretty
Brazilian Strawberry Limeade via One Good Thing by Jillee
Sweetheart Punch via Made To Be A Momma
I also love these festive DIY drink stirrers via PopSugar!
