A Bip & Bop Galentine”s Day

Valentine’s Day…..a day for celebrating love and friendship!  And what better way to celebrate friendship than by gathering together the gals that matter most to you and throwing a Galentine’s Day Party!?  This year Gretchen and I decided to have our little heart-themed lunch at her house and include our friend Ally (who makes the cutest bracelets @embracedbyallyxoxo ) and her sister Sarah (you may recognize her as the model in most of our Bip & Bop website photos!)  Champagne, heart shaped sandwiches and desserts, homemade decorations and the cutest party favors from Bip & Bop and @embracedbyallyxoxo all made this Galentine’s Lunch just “Love-ly”!

Decorations

We found the perfect table runner and “love you” plates at Target….that was our jumping off point for what color scheme we wanted to do.  We decided to stick with a white table cloth and napkins so the red plates, tulips, and heart decor popped!  For the place settings, Gretchen found red metal lace canisters in the Dollar Spot at Target.  It was the perfect place for silverware with an @embracedbyallyxoxo bracelet around it.  We wanted a cute heart garland, and searched around and when we couldn’t find one, we simply made one by stringing heart shaped dollies onto 1/4 inch thick satin ribbon. We found the doilies at the Dollar Store in red, white, and pink!  And from the chandelier we wanted to hang something airy and sweet.  So we cut out hearts (after tracing a cookie cutter) from scrapbooking paper we found at Joann’s fabric store and hot glued them to ivory ribbon.

The Menu 

We wanted to serve something yummy, sweet and simple to go along with the pink bubbly we would be drinking!  Gretchen made a chinese chicken salad, I made heart shaped tea sandwiches (cucumber/cream cheese and egg salad), Ally made fruit kabobs with heart shaped brownies, and for dessert we at brownies and strawberries topped with cool whip and a heart shaped strawberry.

The Perfect Party Favors 

We wanted our guests to leave the party with the perfect heart themed parting gift.  Each guest got a different Bip & Bop necklace.  Gretchen stamped Tiny Initial necklaces with xoxo and cupid’s arrow, I made a few XO necklaces and rose gold Katie Heart necklaces.  Ally made blush, red, and rose gold bracelets @embracedbyallyxoxo with cute silver heart tags on them that matched our valentine-themed outfits.  Also, if you are looking for the perfect outfit for Valentines Day, I got my white sweater with red hearts from Wild Poppy and Co..  They have the cutest clothing there, perfect for everyday, holidays, and special occasions!

Spring Is Here!

Spring is finally here!  Is everyone as excited as me to get to wear pastels?!  I decided to make this fun tulle skirt (tutorial on how to make it coming soon!) to wear for some Easter photos we took.   I just had to document my little 1.5 year old in his darling little suit :)  And what better surroundings for photos than the Barn at Second Wind in Clarksburg, CA? #thebarnatsecondwind
