Brunch Menu

A Galentine’s Day Brunch wouldn’t be complete without a delectable spread. Consider a mix of sweet and savory dishes to cater to everyone’s taste buds. Pancakes, waffles, and a yogurt parfait station make for great brunch options. Don’t forget to include heart-shaped cookies, cupcakes, and a chocolate fondue fountain for that extra touch of sweetness. Accompany these delights with mimosas or a DIY mimosa bar featuring various fruit juices and sparkling wine.

Personalized Touches

Show your gal pals just how much you appreciate them with personalized touches. Consider creating custom name cards for each guest or providing small, thoughtful party favors such as scented candles, bath bombs, or personalized Galentine’s Day cards.

Activities and Entertainment

Keep the energy high with some engaging activities. Set up a crafting station for DIY friendship bracelets or create a vision board activity to inspire your friends for the upcoming year. You could also plan some classic Galentine’s Day games like a “favorite things” gift exchange, a trivia quiz about each other, or a movie marathon featuring your favorite chick flicks.
