galentine's day party

February 16, 2016

hello, hello!!

i had such a great long, loved filled weekend!!  i hope you all did too!  on friday i hosted a little galentine's day soiree for just a few of my friends.  i honestly love hosting and i wish my space was big enough to invite everyone!!!

i served hors d'oeuvres (you know, the frozen variety pack from costco?  they're amazing!) and i made breaded eggplant slices topped with bruschetta.  for dessert my sister made cupcakes, i bought little brownies and i made cheesecake stuffed strawberries (which my sister helped me stuff).  one of my girlies brought brought heart shaped cookie cake that was so adorable!  i also had a few bowls out with chocolates and little candy hearts.  for drinks, i had a mimosa bar with raspberry champagne, raspberry lemonade and mixed berry juice as mixers, and strawberries and raspberries as garnishes.  it was totally a red and pink, love filled affair!

i think my favorite part of the entire night was the little gifts i made for each girl.  i packaged little compact mirrors in little party favor bags with chocolate and confetti inside.  and i made each girl a handmade card with a little one line valentine's message for each girl.  i'm so mad at myself for not taking pictures of the actual cards, but their reactions were priceless!!!  they each appreciated the thought and it was totally the highlight of my night!!
