Yesterday we honored Valentine's Day by celebrating Galentine's Day for the first time. "What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, Leslie Knope and her lady friends leave their husbands and their boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas"! -Parks and Recreation
Designed by myself and photographed by my bestie Vanessa Mota of Smart Little Cookie. This fun, feminine, themed gathering is perfect for celebrating love and friendship with your girls, single or not.

Coincidentally when we finally decided on a date it happened to be Valentine's Day, since none of us had any plans it was a date! Nothing special just us girls, sparkling wine, good eats and chit chat.
That is until... I read Beyond Her Curls post on Galentine's Day, I had no idea this was a thing or that getting together with the girls on Valentine's weekend had a special name. So in that moment I knew that our little gathering had to be much more than just meeting up. Here is what came up with and with the help of my friends was able to bring into fruition.
I had been craving cheese fondue since before Christmas so I crafted the menu around dishes that could accompany and would pair well with it.
My sister's DIY Z Gallery inspired farm table dining set was the center piece and really set the tone for the decor. My sister has a beautiful home so just about any decor added to the room was going to look beautiful. Here is what I picked up to decorate....
