The Perfect Galentine’s Day Brunch

Happy Galentine’s Day!! I’ve heard this phrase for the last few years but I thought it was a different term for Valentine’s Day depending on how you chose to spend it. However, did you know that Galentine’s Day actually has its own day? February 13th! You can officially celebrate the women in your life that have captured your heart and take part in the perfect Galentine’s Day Brunch. Hopefully, it will inspire you to love on some of your favorite women and add some beauty into your life as well :).

The Perfect Galentine’s Brunch

Last weekend, my friend Kusum (SveetesKapes) hosted Carleeh (Mamarazza on a Mission) and myself at Urbane restaurant in Seattle. Located in the downtown Seattle Hyatt, I can’t imagine a better setting or better food (but more on that later). We laughed, caught up a little, and ate to our heart’s content….and then some:). I couldn’t have felt more special as I was showered with flowers, gifts, homemade sentiments, and more. Here’s a broken down, inside look at the perfect Galentine’s Brunch.

Setting and Food

The Perfect Galentine's Day Brunch

Urbane Seattle provided an upscale and intimate setting with local, gourmet eats that involved all the senses. Executive Chef, Brian Pusztai described what goes into a lot of their dishes and it was beyond impressive. Here’s what we were lucky enough to try (and love!).

Irish Cream French Toast

House-made victrola coffee syrup, cinnamon whipped cream, and kukuruza Seattle style popcorn.

This is one of their fan favorites, and although I can’t give away their top-secret coffee syrup recipe, they were nice enough to give me their french toast recipe to give to you! I know what I’ll be doing this next weekend for breakfast!

Flowers/Tablescape

Nothing made the ambiance quite so perfect as the floral arrangements waiting for us. Provided by First & Bloom, the Amaryllis in its arrangement was not only lovely but a beautiful representation of love in the form of friendship.

It was so gorgeous that we immediately went into full blogger mode.

Gifts and Sentiment

We thoroughly enjoyed unwrapping the super cute Galentine’s gifts that Holcomb Weddings put together for under 15.00 dollars each! I love this because it shows that making someone feel special doesn’t have to break the bank :).

The cards were the extra special touch to go along with the gift. Hand-crafted by Lindsay at Linsday P. Designs, Kusum made them come to life with the special sentiments inside:).

This Galentine’s Day (or any regular day for that matter), I hope you find some little or big ways to make your girlfriends feel loved. Treat yourselves! You deserve it :).

  1. It looks like y’all had a fantastic time! I’m so jealous! What a classy Galentine’s Date! Until this morning, I thought Galentine’s was the same as Valentine’s also! I was very excited when I realized it had its own day. Next year I will be going all out with my girls. Next time I’m in Seattle I will have to check out this restaurant!
