EVENTS: Galentine’s Day: A celebration of friendship

Hand up if you are so over Valentine’s. The pressure of getting your partner the perfect gift, the over-priced and overbooked restaurants, and the magnifier in your face if you do not have a date! So when I heard of Galentine’s day, I had to learn more. Turns out it is a fake holiday started on the show Parks and Recreation, much like Festivus began on Seinfeld. The premise is that on February 13th, you get together with your girlfriends and celebrate friendship. We are in! After all, aren’t our fellow women the ones that hold us up and keep us going. So here is a gift, from our all girl team, for all you ladies that want to take an evening and celebrate with your friends. This mood board is all about love, guilty pleasures, bonding, and laughter. And of course, all the links are below for easy online shopping. MY BIGGEST guilty pleasure!

Fiesta Cubana: Complete Design and Links to plan your own Cuban-inspired party.

The Tropical trend is in full swing, and we are totally on board. We are in Miami after all; the land of Cuban coffee and croquetas. Getting inspired for this design was as easy as looking out the window. Our mood board is colorful, upscale, but still has a homey feeling. And, one of our favorite parts is that there are so many ways to recreate this on a tight budget. We included the links for all the items you need to pull off this exact look. And then, we will be adding a post with links to budget friendly swaps. We hope you enjoy. And remember to send us photos of your Cuban Fiesta. We love to see them!!
