HOST Valentine’s Day: MAKE IT A GAL-ENTINE’S DAY TOO!

SMLXL

Valentine’s Day is around the corner & it is just one day, out of the year, where we are able to show the people we love just how much by showering them with little somethings. For this HML Valentine’s Day is also a day to show our “Gal” pals aka Gal-entine’s Day how much we appreciate them too. This simple, beautiful & delicious brunch/lunch is a wonderful way to share the love.
Haute Mom Living (HML) partnered with Pottery Barn @MerrickPark to put together this simply beautiful tablescape & hope it helps inspire you for all of your special people. Starting with a basic white tablecloth is a staple & allows for the beautiful chargers, plates, stemware & flowers to be a real focus for the meal.

Creating a fun-loving easy going atmosphere, was key for me. As a mother of two little ones under 5, time is limited & I knew these other gals would want something easy going too. Although beautiful & elegant between the flowers, food prep ( no cooking necessary), & setting up of the table , prep for one person should take no longer then 20-30 minutes. The hardest part of the entire meal was the food shopping and determining the actual menu.
