galentine's day party tips

galentine's day brunch


If you guys follow along on Instagram, then you probably saw I went to a Galentine’s Day brunch that my friend Jenna of Boston Chic Party hosted over the weekend. I can’t take credit for any of the cute decorations or the food, but it was such a fun time, and too cute to not share! Whether you are single this Valentine’s Day, just started dating someone, have been in a relationship for a while, or are married, I think it’s important to remember to love yourself first, always. I remember being younger… like college days, and letting this holiday make me a little bit upset, even though every other day I was perfectly happy being single. Don’t let one day convince you to be unhappy if you’re perfectly content every other day of the year!

I think a lot of people focus on Valentine’s Day being a “romantic” type holiday, but it doesn’t have to be! I’m a full believer that you can show all kinds of different love on this holiday – whether it’s to friends, family, siblings, etc. Growing up, my mom always made little treats for my siblings and I and would always mail us a care package when we were in college. So if you’re single, or even if you’re in a relationship, why not throw an epic Galentine’s Day party for your girlfriends?! Remember, it doesn’t have to be on the actual holiday! You can plan something over the weekend and have just as much fun.
