This year was our 3rd year hosting a Galentine's Day celebration for creative professionals, and their friends and family that cheer them on. The first 2 years we did a Galentine's Day Tea Party, but this year I decided to switch things up and do a plated brunch. We decided to do our celebration at 4210, which was the same location as the year before. As the girls entered, there was a seating chart with a photo of each girl with their table name. The tables were labeled according to famous friends like Thelma and Louise. This was probably one of my favorite parts, an idea that came from a friend. The girls were encouraged to visit the mimosa bar, and then visit the kissing booth. The mimosa bar was loaded with fun mixers, bubbly, fruits including watermelon hearts, and my favorite xoxo gummies. Fairytail Pet care was the highlight of the event! The girls were surprised with 2 adorable adoptable black lab puppies that hung out at the kissing booth. As guest made their way inside there was a display of fresh floral crowns hand made in a variety of styles given as a party favor. Once seated, each setting displayed their first course which was a parfait served in vintage blush punch cups. Two more courses followed, and then each table was brought a delicious 3 tiered tray over flowing with assorted desserts including French macarons, cupcakes, heart cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, and much much more. It was a lovely time visiting with friends, and making new friends with puppy snuggles. Special thanks to Cheryl for the ribbon, and Alex and Jennifer for getting up so early to help me setup!! I feel blessed to have such lovely friends!! Happy Galentine's Day! You can view last years celebration HERE.
