Styled Galentine's Brunch

styled-valentines-brunch-raleigh-blogger-kate-steadman
Planning, organizing and styling events has been one of my passions for years now and out of all of the event's that I've done I can honestly say that my favorite ones are always the the Raleigh Blog Society Galentine's Brunches!

Every year around Valentine's Day, the Raleigh blogger babes and I all get together for a beautiful, styled brunch. We dress up in our cutest Valentine's looks, enjoy a ton of sweet treats, sip on some cocktails and of course, talk blogging! 

This year's event, like last year's, was styled in collaboration with Meghan of Champagne and Suburbs and was hosted at Frill's headquarters!

Chris Nieto photographed our entire event and Betty Edwards created beautiful, hand-painted, calligraphy covered goodie bags.

Maddie of The Whimsy One, who seriously makes some of the best cocktails I've ever had, created yet another delicious drink for our event. Mimosa like in structure, our "Blush Crush" cocktail featured a mix of guava nectar, pineapple juice and prosecco!

Huge thanks to everyone that contributed and attended! You guys are the entire reason I blog, you all are such an inspiration and I am so lucky to have you as friends!

But really, how pretty are these bags by Betty Edwards!? She hand painted the print and the calligraphy!! So talented.
