Galentine’s Baking Party for Valentine’s Day with Bakerita
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a huge sweet tooth. I’ve been following Bakerita’s blog for about a year and was ecstatic when I found out that the lovely blogger Rachel was in San Diego. I knew I had to collaborate with her!
The Galentine’s movement is absolutely here to stay and I wanted to create inspiration for a baking party that any bride or gal could do with her closest friends or bridesmaids. The idea is that you’d all get together for mimosas or bellinis and bake simple, yet gorgeous sweet treats together before sitting down to enjoy them with each other.
Design by Laney created an incredibly fun accordion invitation to match the multiple festive paper pieces also included in our shoot. With heart shaped dessert cards, she calligraphed them with each sweet’s name. She also created beautiful recipe cards that a bride could send to her ‘maids and request that each gal bring a different recipe. Laney also calligraphed precious miniature jars full of pink sprinkles, which serve as the perfect place card for this baking party.
Jennifer Cole’s pink and red floral arrangements make the most gorgeous centerpieces for the dessert table. With so many textures, they complement the fun and joyful vibe of the party. Her pink candlesticks add just the right amount of pink to this sophisticated gathering of gal pals.
Bakerita selected five different sweets for our spread: chocolate raspberry tartlets, raspberry marshmallows, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate strawberry cups, and chocolate covered strawberry brownies. Each is absolutely delicious, simple to make, and perfect for a Galentine’s baking party!
