It's almost Galentine's Day! Don't know what that is? "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 we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas." Whelp, Leslie Knope does know best.
It's absolutely one of my favorite days of the year and I love to be able to celebrate Leslie Knope style with waffles, roses, and all things pink. I just love to see womxn celebrating womxn. It is so important, especially in our society, to support each other and not tear each other down. So, celebrate each other and let me know below what you do to celebrate!
This year my gal pals and I weren't all free to hang out at the same time, so we've done a virtual party for Galentine's Day! This is a dreamy and delicious brunch filled with lots of deliciousness. I've set up the perfectly pink tablescape for you and the ladies, some DIY place cards (body scrub), a chocolate waffle bar, rose tea cakes, pink champagne and a fruit platter! For my gal's recipes you better go and check out their sites below.

FAQs about a Galentine's Day Brunch
Of course the obvious (but still great) choice, would be red and pink. Try adding in some white, gold, some yellows or even oranges to mix things up.
Waffles or pancakes are a fun option for a "bar" or board. Always be sure to have a fruit platter. Baked goods like muffins, tea cakes, scones that can hold up for hours. Other fun additions are sparkly, fun drinks.
