This post is a bit late, but I wanted to share with you guys what my friends and I did for Valentine’s Day (it was really the day after the 14th). We decided to turn this traditionally romantic holiday into a celebration of friendship also know as Galentine’s Day. It was invented by Amy Poehler’s character in the show, Parks & Recreation. My closest friend, Tiffany, graciously offered to have the girls only get together at her house.
I came a little early to cook my Early Gray Tea Cupcakes. Me and Tiffany played 2 cooks in the kitchen wearing cute matching aprons 🙂
As guests arrived we sat down at the beautifully decorated table.
We feasted on the most delicious Chinese Chicken Salad that was made by Tiffany and a heart shaped pizza from, you guessed it, Pizza My Heart.
Our host surprised us with cute little gifts!
For dessert, we indulged in the classics, chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels as well as my cupcakes and donut holes.
After eating, we wanted to watch a cute romantic comedy but we couldn’t decide on one. Instead we watched Law and Order:SVU (the opposite of what you would expect we would watch on Valentine’s Day) and a few episodes of the Office.
Overall it was such a fun evening, and great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
