Valentine’s Day is this weekend but since this holiday is about spending it with the people you care about in your life, I wanted to host a small wine and Galentine’s get together with a few of my besties. So, this past Saturday Tiff and Jess stopped by to celebrate with a late afternoon brunch of chocolate and wine- both are our fav’s!
Sticking with the cute and girly theme, I opted for this amazing Princess Bride wine gift set by Personal Wine. These special edition bottles are a tribute to the 28th anniversary of The Princess Bride but it also happens to be one of our favorite classics, so this set was perfect. I also liked the fact that it came with Chardonnay and Cabernet so I didn’t have to make the decision of choosing which. The white was so light and delicious and the red had just a hint of sweetness and wasn’t as dry as cab’s typically are, which I love.
Two bottles was just the right amount for us as we sipped, snacked and gossiped the afternoon away. To compliment the wine, I put out mini vanilla cupcakes, pink m&m’s, heart-shaped chocolate and lightly salted popcorn. I also added a few arrangements of fresh flowers and pink napkins to add that special touch to table spread.
I really enjoyed hosting this little get together and it was so simple and easy, I’m thinking that I should make this a regular occurrence. I ordered the wine online via Personal Wine and had it shipped right to my door step and the snacks were quick grabs that I got on my weekly grocery run. It can be hard to coordinate schedules on the weekends to try and set aside time to get together to catch-up but so glad it worked out this past weekend, it’s such a good feeling!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend! xo
