Leslie Knope taught me to never miss a Galentine’s Day. Of course, I live and die by that life-long rule. That’s why I just had to throw a Galentine’s Day Brunch for the ages this year.
My girls mean so much to me, especially since I’m asking something big of them this coming year: to be my bridesmaids. Therefore, I thought it was absolutely essential to show them I care in the only way I know how: with on-theme food and party decor for a Galentine’s Day Brunch.
The Hand-Crafted Sign
I make one of these handcrafted signs for almost every occasion. I’ve got it down to a science now (I use my mom’s Cricut). This time though, I experimented a bit more with colors and patterns in an effort to mix it up a bit.
If you’re interested in purchasing this sign, you can check it out here, on my Etsy page. I just recently started my Etsy page for party supplies, but I’m so excited to add more items there soon!
The Cardboard Letters
These cardboard letters are a great addition to any dessert table set-up. I use them at almost any function anymore, and they always come in handy to take up some empty space in an adorable way.
I got these from Hobby Lobby. You can find them here. Every few weeks they run a sale on these, so certainly make sure to get them on sale! They can start to add up in price if you need many of them.
I love adding these to my party designs. They are so cute and playful. I usually get them from Hobby Lobby on sale, but if you aren’t near a hobby lobby and just prefer Amazon (because c’mon) you can find them here.
Pro Tip: If you purchase them from Amazon, just make sure you get the same brand for all your letters so they look cohesive!
Vintage, Gold Flower Plates
I was given these beauties by my soon to be mother-in-law. I adore them. They have a knack for making any dessert table look so cute. She got them from Hobby Lobby I believe, but I can’t seem to find an online listing for them even though I’ve seen them in stores before.
The Decorative Paper Straws
Paper straws are a must for any drinks on the dessert table. I found these at Walmart. They actually have all of these patterns in a variety of colors. When I was strolling down the party aisle (my most frequented aisle) I saw these so, therefore, I had to get them. They were the perfect touch! Something like this would work!
The Beautiful Bouquet
I love adding a nice color appropriate bouquet to any party set up. It helps breathe some life into the decor and add some bright, beautiful colors. Plus I get to keep seeing these for several weeks on my table after the party? Sign me up!
The Galentine’s Day Brunch Food
The Beautiful Trifle (with a cake topper of course)
The trifle is arguably one of my most favorite parts of this Galentine’s Day Brunch brunch table setup. First of all, it’s so beautiful. Second of all, it is so, so tasty. I got the recipe from Lisa Jorgenson at Making Life Blissful. If you’re interested in recreating her recipe like I did, you can find it here.
The glass trifle dish I’m using is from Walmart, too. It was super cheap! Only $4. I’m not even going to link to an online version because they all seem to be much more expensive than the in store Walmart one I found.
The Most Essential Brunch Finger Foods
I chose two different brunch finger foods for my guests: Heart-shaped Waffles and Pancake Shish Kabobs. They were both delicious and super simple to make. For the shish kabobs I topped them with blackberries and raspberries. Then, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar.
Any time I can find an excuse for a mimosa bar, believe me…it’s there. I have the process of putting one together down pat. It’s so simple! They are always a hug hit. Three pretty colored juices and a cheap bottle of champagne are all you need!

The very best thing to do on Galentine’s Day, as Leslie Knope would say, is to celebrate your ladies. That’s why we do it right?! There is no official holiday for your best friends – that’s why we have to take Galentine’s Day so seriously. Everyone deserves to be told how freakin’ amazing they are every once in a while, which is why I created the Galentine’s Day Card Confetti Mailer.
This mailer is easy to hand out in person or via snail mail! & the best part, it comes in a cellophane wrapper filled with confetti just for them. So they can remember how amazing they are & then throw that confetti. Woohoo!
The Very Best Galentines
First of all, there’s nothing better than celebrating a Galentine’s Day Brunch with your best Galentine. And of course, my best friend Sierra was lovely enough to let me photograph her in front of my setup, and I’m so grateful.
I really had the time of my life organizing and executing this party. Want to see some more of my party work? Go ahead and click here.
