Galentine’s Day is Coming Soon!
As a wise woman named Leslie Knope once said, “We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.” Celebrating Galentine’s Day is the perfect way to show your appreciation and celebrate your lady friends. Not to mention, it’s the perfect excuse to get together, catch up, and eat all the sprinkles.
You may have already read my blog post on how to host the perfect Galentine’s Day with your girls, and you’re ready to start planning! Lucky for you, today I’m sharing the cutest Galentine’s Day decor to make your dining room the cutest (and coziest!) brunch spot for your gals. Getting out of your cute pajamas is optional, and mimosas are mandatory.
I must admit, I normally don’t necessarily decorate my home for holidays other than for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But, that is one thing I definitely want to change. A great way to decorate your home for each holiday quickly and on a budget is to stick with neutral basics through the rest of your home. When your basics (ie. your sofa, chairs, and other major furniture pieces) are neutrals, you can easily (and cheaply!) decorate your home for each holiday by switching out pillows, blankets, and other nick-knack items in that holiday’s color palette. Below, I made sure to choose cute and simple decor that I know you’re going to love and that you can incorporate seamlessly into your home during the season of love – whether you’re hosting your gals or your family! The best part? 99% of it is from Target!
The Cutest Galentine’s Day Brunch Decor
Astilbe Flower Bundle // Faux Fur Throw Blanket // Pink Tray // Cookie Cutter Set // XOXO Mug // Throw Pillow // Heart Throw Pillow (ALSO IN ROSE GOLD SEQUINS)// Gold + White Striped Paper Straws // Table Runner // Ribbon Garland // Berry Wreath // Letter Board // Pink Dinnerware // Sparrow & Wren Emoji Bowl // Gold Flatware // Placemat
One big thing I was inspired by for Galentine’s Day this year was the idea of a cozy brunch at home filled with chick flicks and mimosas. So many women stress to find the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit for date night out with their significant other that I love the idea of making Galentine’s Day a stress-free and truly relaxing time with girlfriends. It’s stressful being a woman – especially in society today. Let’s designate one day to nothing but a brunch full of mimosas, pancakes, and chick-flick marathons in our pajamas.
Bring the Inspiration to Life
I love the idea of setting the table with those gorgeous gold placemats paired with those blush dishes, gold flatware, and that astilbe flower bundle in a darling vase. Decorate some cookies to pair with place cards and you have a fabulous and thoughtful place setting accessory – one that won’t last until dessert! Not to mention, those gold paper straws and the heart table runner alongside those XOXO mugs would be the perfect touch to complete your darling Galentine’s Day tablescape! (Who doesn’t love a cute coffee mug?)
Meanwhile, you can easily take the party from the table to the couch with the cutest (and coziest!) heart pillows and blankets to sink into during a movie marathon. (As long as it’s not The Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez! I’m definitely not a fan of that one as a wedding planner myself!) Take cute selfies during the movie with your new letter board featuring funny quotes, and you’ve got the perfect girls day!
Fun Galentine’s Day Party Idea
I’ll admit, I didn’t think of this idea. But, I love it! How perfect would Galentine’s Day be if you and your gal pals each got to go home with a swag bag of goodies? One fun Galentine’s Day party idea that is sure to show your gals how much you appreciate one another is to have a favorite things gift exchange!
How it works is that each gal brings one of her favorite things from the past year to share with the rest of the group. So if I loved this new lip balm or bronzer that I discovered in the past year, I’d bring one for each other gal at the party. (It may work best to have a price limit on each favorite thing so each person isn’t spending a ton of money!) At the end of the party, all your gals will go home with a bag of goodies. How fun is that!
Well, darlings, I hope you enjoyed swooning over these cute decor pieces like I did. I can’t wait to snag some of these items to start decorating my home for the season of love. (Especially those blush dishes!)
