Great Ideas for Galentine's AND Valentine's Day


Valentine's Weekend is just two weeks away! Valentine's Day is February 14th and Galentine's Day is the day before, February 13th. While you may be very familiar with the popular Valentine's holiday, you may have never heard of Galentine's Day. Galentine's is a celebration the day before Valentine's for close female friends to celebrate their friendship. Today's blog from John Elliott Interiors is full of great inspiration for your Valentine's weekend. Keep reading for more! 

With the Gals...

Host a Brunch

Breakfast food is some of the greatest comfort food, and it is quite easy to prepare. Put together a few easy favorites like scrambled eggs, bacon, and an indulgent pastry. Display them on your table with beautiful dishes that make it feel like an even more special occasion. No brunch is complete without a delicious mimosa or bloody mary bar. Set up a table with champagne, a variety of juices, and fruit pieces for a fun mimosa bar. Or build-your-own bloody mary's with vodka, tomato juice, bacon, celery salt, and any other favorite mix-ins you love. Mix it up by using a V8 juice instead of tomato juice for a richer flavor!

Wine Tasting

You could go out and pay for a wine tasting event. Or, ask your ladies to each bring a bottle of their favorite wine and enjoy each other's selections over good conversation and charcuterie. If wine isn't your thing, you could also try mixing new drinks you've never tried before to experiment and find new favorites.

Catch Up

As Leslie Knope would say, "Any time girlfriends get together, they embody the spirit of Galentine's Day." No matter what you do together, spending quality time together is important to friendships. Spend time catching up with one another or learning new things you never knew before. There are a lot of great games available that help prompt fun questions that help people reconnect and feel closer to one another. Choose a favorite movie classic you all used to watch with one another or the cheesiest possible chick flick to poke fun at... Just enjoy spending time together without the pressure of daily stress.

With Your Special Someone...

There are several great events around the Lake of the Ozarks that you and your significant other can enjoy together to celebrate a romantic weekend. Check it out!

For our Dessert and Dancing event, we will have a professional ballroom dance instructor to teach you and your Valentine some fun beginner dance steps. You will also be greeted with a champagne reception (must be 21 for champagne), and for your sweet tooth, we partnered with "Cakes Baby" in Downtown Eldon to create a romantic tour where you will indulge in several delicious dessert samples. Samples will include heart-shaped macaroons, strawberry cheesecake, and chocolate truffles. This event is only for four nights on the 5th, 6th, 12th, and 13th of February from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and we are limiting the capacity to 16 people per night so you will want to reserve your spot quickly before it's sold out.
