A Valentine's Day Friendship Brunch

Most of the time when thinking of Valentine’s Day, girls’ minds automatically go to romantic love between significant others, but what about the love shared between best girlfriends? In this shoot, Angie Strange, Kristin Mullen and Danielle Downing decided to capture the loving community that they have formed as bloggers. “When you truly love someone, you encourage them, support them, and work with them to build them up. So this feminine brunch was a way to share the love these bloggers have for their friends and the blogging community!”

  • Bright pink flowers pop against a black and white table runner.

  • There’s no better excuse to dress up in your favorite red and pink outfits than a girlie Valentine’s brunch!

  • Mini desserts are ideal for snacking when chatting with all your girlfriends.

  • Cheers to fabulous friends!

  • Have lipglosses in shades of pink and red on hand for touch ups after brunch!

  • Instead of a traditional name card, these personal sketches make perfect name cards, and favors for your guests!

  • Nothing beats a plate stacked high with sprinkled donuts!

  • A striped black and white runner adds a graphic pop to the elegant tablescape.

    Nice images, but wish I could see some diversity… I guess people of color don’t fashion blog or enjoy valentine’s day brunches..

  • Kristen K.

    Interesting how they didn’t even mention the shopping bloggers involved and barely used their faces and outfits in the feature…?

  • Lindsay Van Cleave

    So much gorgeous inspiration! I’m obsessed with the illustrated drawings for place cards. Amazing!

  • Kristen K

    Wow, thanks for deleting comments on this. Just because a question was asked regarding the races of the women included and why wasn’t anyone but the table actually featured. That is terrible business Glitter Guide.
