Galentine’s Day!

Last year I had a Galentine’s Day tea for some of my special ladies. Somehow I’ve lost all the photos I took on our camera, so I hope that you will bear with me as this handful of iPhone photos will have to suffice!

Once again I recycled the paper lanterns from our wedding, using only the pinks and golds. I love those beehive lanterns. My color story was fuchsia, light pink, gold, and a little bit of peach.

I bought crepe paper from Papermart to make the fringe banners. Good ol’ dollar store paper hearts made an easy table runner.

The ‘Cheers Ladies’ banner peeking out from behind me was bought from Confetti Bistro’s Etsy shop. Napkins, pink tassels, and straws were all duly purchased on Etsy as well.

I always want everything to look so pretty, but I’m not afraid to admit that food styling is just not my forté. I’m working on it!

Crustless mini quiches – So easy and delish.

Cucumber and chive sandwiches – White bread and a chives for garnish.

Smoked turkey with cranberry horseradish and smoked gouda – Smoke ’em if you got ’em! I love me some smoked meat and cheeses with a horseradish bite!

Tomato and feta sandwiches – Simple.

Cranberry scones w/ Devonshire cream and strawberry jam – I’d never tried Devonshire cream before – it’s tangy – and I doubt I’d buy it again, even though it was fine. My scones recipe is always a hit, but I’m still tweaking it so I’m holding off on sharing.

Mini cake petit fours – Mine were a little wonky looking, but they did taste good and were easy to make.

Mini raspberry tarts – Mine were not so mini. In fact, they were rather huge! I need a tiny tart pan: stat.

Persian rose love spell cookies – I love this recipe!

Get it girl punch – As usual, we just kind of made up our own recipe. This one was basically Prosecco and ruby red grapefruit juice.

Adagio rooibos earl grey tea – Smooth, floral and citrus perfection.

English breakfast black tea blend – I chose a simple black tea blend to cut the sweet, but I do not recall which brand I used.

My inspiration board is up on Pinterest and, believe me, there was a whole lot of pretty I didn’t get around to doing!

Happy Galentine’s Day! Cheers, ladies!
