I didn’t realize that galentine’s day has been commercialized and a date had been assigned to it, so when my friends and I decided to get together the day after valentines day we were doing so on “the wrong day”. However when I think about the placement of galentine’s day, coming before (the day before) valentines day, I can appreciate the ho’s before bro’s placement 😉
It was a weeknight so I tried to keep in simple. My friends brought the drinks, and I put together a couple apps, shrimp scampi, and a cake! In preparation I bought a few things; plates, a pack of pink doilies, and fresh flowers. But the goal here was to keep it simple and repurpose things I have at home with simple touches to make it feel lovely.
Pictured here is fruit and fruit dip, fresh salsa and chips on terrariums that I found at Decor Steals. I promise to do another post on my love for decor steals and all the steals I have picked up!
The vases that the flowers are in came from the $1, $3, and $5 section of Target. They were $3 each!
Fruit Dip was a HIT with the girlies so I promise to do a post on this VERY simple recipe
I pick up these paper straws at TJ Maxx for $1.99/pack and stash them away for when I want to feel fancy or am hosting.
Pink Lemonade Cake! Post to come up on semi-homemade weeknight concoction.
Many many thanks to my gal’s for joining me, contributing, celebrating and sharing the love ❤ ❤ ❤
