OMG, you guys. This year my Valentine’s Brunch got to happen ON Valentine’s Day. If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is. The party was sponsored by Door-to-Door Organics. It made party prep so much easier! Most of the party groceries were delivered RIGHT to my door. What a dream!
Pictured above: BLT sliders*, Yam and feta quiche, and asparagus croque monsiers using this gruyere of my dreams.
*Pesto, goat cheese, crispy prosciutto and tomato on 1 oz. brioche buns.
We all hung out and sipped/chugged mimosas, listened to records, danced to Beyonce and basically had the best time. (My girl Nicky helped me decorate too! She’s the OMG Pom Pom queen and totally arranged the prettiest flower sitch around my big heart cross-stitch.)
I made self-serve mimosas in this big ole honey pot lookin’ jug. (Thanks, Katie! I love it!) And can you even believe that giant styrofoam heart?! My friend Elliot cut it out for me! We used it to pin valentines to and eventually instax photos.
Crispy prosciutto for days! I crisped up the imported stuff in the oven at 400F for about 7 minutes. I used it on the BLTs and on the cheese plates.
We’re “Best Bitches”. Our necklace says so. And check out the flowers around my cross-stitch! So fun. We took everyone’s photo in front of it.
I ordered most of these cool decorations from Paper Mart, then intermingled stuff from over the years. This menu sign tho, really made it! I found it at an antique store in Detroit along with a bunch of letter for spelling everything! Parties are gonna be totally stepped up a notch thanks to it.
Bought plates this year from Bash Party Goods. I love their designs and color schemes so much! Kinda wish my plates for every day looked just like this!
I got a custom stamp made for the valentines! I filled in the blanks for everyone keeping this personal, ya know? You love rare meat? I’ll use it. You’re into moist cake, I got it. Give this a shot tho! If you shop here you can get a custom stamp made and delivered within the week! And it’s not even pricy.
I have the best friends! Katie helped me sandwich BLTs while Nicky sandwiched those lemon poppy seed shortcakes with mascarpone whipped cream, lemon curd and macerated strawberry slices. We used more of that dreamy mascarpone whipped cream on the cereal milk banana pudding.

And then Darren was like, “The fish I caught was THIIIIIS big.”
And seriously, isn’t Aimee’s dress perfect?! Kinda think it’d be the best wedding dress or bridesmaid dress to ever to happen in the world. And look how cute Katie’s bangs are!
AND THE PARTY WAS OVER. 🙁 This is how my apartment still kinda looks? I held cupid’s hair back while he threw up all over my apartment. Ha!
