Galentine's Day/Girls Night Out Celebrations!

What's a better way to celebrate your love and respect for your besties than a Galentine's Day Celebration, or a Girls Night Out Celebration? Why not gather your best girlfriends and celebrate together; dinner out, photo shoot, desserts, some sparkly drinks, and maybe a handmade gift for everyone to take home. This was the inspiration behind a styled shoot held at few years ago, at The Loft of Elements Preserved.

I'm not sure we realize how special it has been to be able to get together with friends until this past two year, when we've not really been able to do so. So, here's to celebrating with your best gal pals, where you can show your support, your love, encouragement, friendship, and good food!

Candy Hearts say I Love You!

Celebrate your lady friends success in business, life, friendship, or upcoming milestone event

Crown braids and confetti! It's a celebration!

Desserts are always a must for events like this.

Delish Bakery was so kind to share some of their macarons and small goodies for this day at The Loft of Elements Preserved. A small floral display for the sweets table was the perfect way to tie in the florals for the floral wall created for this event, as well.

Add a Photography Backdrop to your event!

The floral wall was designed and styled by Janet Gallagher, owner at Designs by Janet. Having a backdrop created for your Galentine's Day event is the perfect way to create a space for photos together in one of our Lounge seating packages.

Can we just talk about the beautiful styling that Tamara Holden Hair brings to every client! Why not include hair and makeup for your guest of honor? Makeup By Jacquee provided the stunning makeup artistry, and we love her style! Who doesn't love to be pampered for a special event! She even wove green petals into our client's hair for this styled shoot! Perfection!

Copper Arbor filled with fresh tropical flowers offers a unique flower wall backdrop.

Grazing Tables!

How about including a charcuterie board, or individual charcuterie boxes? We know several companies that are pros at this, including Sage and Jam, and Fork It Grazing! Displaying them on a silver platter, beautiful vintage cutting board, or farm table top creates another vignette to enjoy.

How can we support each other as women-owned businesses, or as sisters and friends?

We all need to support each other, but especially in a world so full of competition in every aspect. Whether it's our skin color, our age, our size, our successes, our failures, our past, these all makes us who we are today, and should be celebrated for what they are.

Here are 7 ways to support each other:

  1. Encourage Family And Friends To Shop Small

  2. Share Small Businesses On Social Media

  3. Give Your Favorite Women in Business A Review (Or A Few)

  4. Engage With Their Content

  5. Encouraging Words Can Go A Long Way

  6. Be Their Biggest Fan (and Spread the Word)

  7. Offer Your Time To Help With Their Business

  8. Take Action

Here's to future Galentine's Day celebrations. Whether you're choosing to celebrate at our intimate venue, The Loft of Elements Preserved, or would like us to design and style an event especially for you, including seating, table decor, desserts, appetizers, a photo op backdrop, and a takeaway gift, we're infinitely grateful when we have the opportunity to bring your celebration to life.
