Remember celebrating Valentine’s Day as a kid? Everyone would bring 20-something Valentines (enough for the whole class), and you’d go home with a decorated shoe box full of assorted candy. Valentine’s Day wasn’t just a day to celebrate your significant other, you celebrated all of your friends...it was the best!
Recently, Jake and I watched all the seasons of Parks and Recreation on Netflix and I learned about Leslie Knope’s favorite holiday….Galentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day takes place the day before Valentine’s Day and exists to celebrate best girlfriends, or as Leslie puts it, “ladies celebrating ladies”. Our Parks and Rec binge couldn’t have been more timely, as this year I was asked to be a part of a Galentine’s Day celebration for the first time!
My awesome neighbor friends recently started a blog, Simply Sisters Collective, and decided to host the most adorable Galentine's Brunch. Complete with homemade paleo donuts, cranberry scones, almond poppyseed bread, and of course mimosas, they definitely did Leslie Knope proud.
I had so much fun designing invitations for the brunch, that I also made these cute little cards that were put at each place setting.
The cards are 3"x3" so they are small enough to punch a hole in the corner and tie onto a gift for a grown-up version of a Valentine. Keep scrolling for gift ideas for all of the ladies in your life!
