Girlfriends’ Valentine’s Brunch (and a Giveaway!)

Valentine’s day is right around the corner and although you might be making plans with your honey, sometimes it can be about showing your friends that you care about them!! This year I decided to host a little soiree to celebrate a special group of girlfriends that have supported me this year – close friends and our Sacramento Street contributors (a new lovely lady debuting next week!). Minted was kind enough to provide a Valentine’s Day party in a box, which was perfect for the occasion – striped straws, signs, colorful paper goods for the table, and tags.

It was fun dreaming up this girlie-girl tabletop – a bit out of my normal (neutral colored) comfort zone but it definitely had to happen for this Valentine’s Day brunch. My essentials for any brunch tabletop – clean cut tulips from the grocery store, bright linen napkins, candy in the colors your decorating the table with and lastly, a fun drink to serve guests as they arrive (in this case blood orange soda with prosecco).

One of my favorite things to do for parties is to have something special for guests – in this case, I worked with Minted on creating personalized journals for each of my girlfriends. It was fun to add them to the tabletop as their place card.

When you combine love, laughter and amazing friends around a table, there really isn’t anything better! This brunch made me realize I need to host more parties to celebrate the girlfriends I love.

Now for the fun part! Minted is giving away a $150 gift certificate good for any Valentine’s Day items! Perfect for the holiday that is right around the corner

Here’s how to enter the Minted Valentine’s day giveaway:

~ One winner will be chosen randomly and win a $150 gift certificate good for any Valentine’s Day items on the site!

    Oh my gosh, I love this! It reminds of Leslie Knope’s Galentine’s Day parties (do you watch Parks & Rec?)! I love your idea of the personalized journals for place cards– I’m definitely going to be stealing that idea. :)

    Hello,
    The Mint Valentine’s Day products are lovely! I really like the party pack shown, but after looking at the other Valentine options on their site, I really like the art prints. There were so many to choose from. I’m really in need of some art prints too:)
