I think we are all excited spring is finally happening! It was a looooong winter I mean can we talk about all the rain?! Every March I go through a spring transformation in the house and I pull out all my floral and bright patterns for my tables, chairs and couches and bookshelves. This year I get to show it all to you all because I’m participating in the It’s A Colorful Life Spring tour hosted by my lovely friends Jeweled Interiors and DImples and Tangles. The tour started yesterday (Tuesday) and runs through Friday featuring 15 beautiful and colorful blogs. If you’ve been looking for inspiration, search no more, these ladies will have all the inspo you need!
As many of you know, I’m a sucker for anything pink so naturally, Valentine’s Day is a favorite holiday of mine. Never one to miss a chance to entertain some of my favorite ladies, I thought it was a perfect time to create a Galentine’s Brunch Table. Give me all the pink, champagne, cheeses and sweets and lets get this party started!
The first thing I do before I set a table is shop my home. After taking a quick tour through the house I pulled a good grouping of items where the colors, textures and prints all worked well together. My first groupings aren’t necessarily the end all be all of what I’m going to use for a table but it gets the creative process started.
My tables always include some unexpected creative items and with this table, I used Ikea FISKBO picture frames as my place card holders. The whimsical name tags, compliments of my large stash of stationary paper, perfectly play off of the Caspari party plates that don’t scream Valentine’s but play well into the pinks and reds of the season.
When I plan a party, my goal is to spend as much time as I can with my guests which means I need a solution to washing loads of dishes. The plates, napkins and flatware are all disposable, even the gold polka dot dinner plates from Target! That’s right, go ahead and stand at the end of the table and have the ladies throw it all away!
The best time to experiment with colors and patterns is when you’re entertaining your friends. Go ahead and impress them all by mixing black and white with pink and florals and polka dots. Live a little, I promise it’s fun and you’ll definitely inspire some of your guests to do the same when its their turn to host!
I hope you all have a Galentine’s date lined up with your girlfriends and if you’re close by, I wouldn’t say no to an invite~ Sara
