As a kid, I always got a little gift basket with some candy and a small gift from my mom to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I don’t think I ever really associated this holiday as a romantic one. And as I got older, it became more of a day to celebrate and acknowledge every person I love, from my husband and parents to my friends, and even myself.

Unofficially, Galentine’s Day is February 13, but in my opinion, you can celebrate it any time you’d like in February. This day was actually a fictional holiday in the TV show Parks and Recreation, and it’s been steadily gaining so much traction over the years that – nerd alert – Merriam-Webster has the holiday on its radar as part of its “Words We’re Watching” list.

I honestly love any excuse to host people, and what better reason to do so than with a Galentine’s Day brunch to celebrate friendship with your lady friends. Whether you’re happily married, single, or somewhere in between, there’s always time for food and drink! Here are my tips for a chic and easy Galentine’s Day brunch.

Galentine’s Day Brunch Ideas

Make It Buffet-Style

Brunch is arguably the best meal of the day because you can serve sweet and savory. And breakfast foods and lunch foods.

You obviously know all your girlfriends, but some may not know others. Any time I may be getting various groups of friends together, I always serve things buffet-style. There’s something about this kind of setup that makes your get together conversation-friendly, instead of just sitting down at a table and eating. 

Here are some of my Galentine’s Day brunch food favorites:

  • Mini heart shaped waffles with chocolate chips, syrup, whipped cream, or even sprinkles (my mini heart shaped waffle maker is only $15!)
  • Fresh fruit (try to stick to anything pink or red, like strawberries or raspberries)
  • Classic Valentine’s Day candy like Sweethearts or wrapped chocolates
  • A V-day themed charcuterie board (click here to see exactly how I made mine)
  • Frosted sugar cookies and French macarons

Serve Individual Bottles

I’m a sucker for mini wine and champagne bottles. And a Galentine’s Day brunch is the perfect occasion for this purchase. To make them a little extra special, I tied a ribbon with a straw around each bottle. This way everyone can just grab and sip, no glass needed!

Don’t Forget Decor

Truthfully, I only decorate my home for the holidays, but I am always down to make things festive if I’m throwing a party or event. For a brunch like this it is fun to sprinkle in some girly décor. 

It goes without saying that a Galentine’s Day anything is going to have pink or red, so lean into it and enjoy it. I broke up the colors by added white and gold accents; I think it softens things a bit and makes everything look a little more grown up and less like a child’s party. Obviously, all things hearts are a must-have to add in, too.

Here are some simple ways to decorate for your brunch:

  • Sprinkle candy or paper garland on your table 
  • Use chargers under your plates to instantly elevate each table setting (buy my gold ones here)
  • Swap out your usual napkins with some seasonal ones
  • Add in florals to liven up your party

Dress Up

Give yourself a reason to dress up in a pink or red dress! If you’re going to host a brunch this chic and cute, you and all your BFFs should also look just as cute, am I right?


Sit back, pop open your mini champagne, and enjoy time with the women in your life you love the most.
