Galentine's Day 2019

What's better than brunch? Brunch with all your girlfriends! Last year, I had a small Galentine's Day gathering, and this year, lots more people were available to come. My little house was filled with friends from all stages of my life--childhood friends, church friends, high school friends, and college friends. And you never know how mixed groups of friends will get along or if there will be long awkward silences, but that didn't happen! It was just such a nice, chill time of eating food and painting our nails and talking about random things, from jobs to traveling to local biking trails.

All the food I made the day before, and then popped it in the oven Saturday morning before people came over. Chopping fruit, making (heart-shaped!) pancakes, scrambling eggs and sauteing potatoes + beans (for breakfast tacos)...I'm telling you, it is the lazy person's breakfast menu. So easy!!

I decorated with $14 of flowers, which Devin arranged into bouquets (because I'm terrible at it, which I learned at my sister-in-law's baby shower). For favors, I just did a simple handwritten card and a bottle of pink nail polish. 

To help spread things out, there was a coffee bar in the living room, bubbly drinks and mixes (mocktails for my pregnant friends!) on another table, and food in the kitchen. That helped keep one room (like my tiny kitchen) from getting too crowded. 

What fun things have you been up to this winter? Have you ever been to a Galentine's Day event?
