Spectacular vibrant and colourful Galentines Day Inspiration

Today I am excited to share some spectacular vibrant and colourful Galentines Day Inspiration with candy apple red and beautiful bubble gum pink detail.

February is the month of love and Galentines Day on February 13th can play as big a part as Valentines Day itself.

While February 14 usually gets all the kudos, the day prior was designed to celebrate other equally special relationships in our lives: our best gals.

Whether you want to plan something special to symbolise the importance of your friendships, or whether you are getting married soon, and could spin it as a Bridal shower idea then it’s important to show those in your life how blessed you feel to have them with you.

Images were captured by Carrie McGuire Photography with planning by Love Always Planning, and the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

For the purposes of the shoot Wedding Planner Ryan McKenzie of Love Always Planning wanted to celebrate her hard working fellow boss babes with lots of sweet treats and bubbles to show them how much she appreciated them.

So she created this glorious colourful Galentines Day shoot to shower them with her affection, and provide some marvellous inspiration for others to bring together their own celebrations.

The zingy colour palette was comprised of candy apple red and beautiful bubble gum pink, and the styling packs a punch.

Minted created the bold stationery giving an amazing insight into the day.

Chic, dynamic and versatile San Diego venue Flora served as an incredible backdrop, with its stunning white interior, arched antique windows, and a botanical vibe,

Beautiful modern and vintage pieces from Archive Rentals were used to create the fantastic tablescape  with brass chargers, ceramic plates, nickel flatware, stunning vintage glassware and luxurious blush velvet linens from APR Boutique Event Rentals.

Striking florals from Tularosa Flowers in a riot of red and pink completed the statement look.

As well as the tablescape a playful, elegant and modern lounge space was created to an air of real relaxation.

This area came complete with a slipper station to really up the tranquillity and comfort vibe where you actively encouraged to ditch the heels.


Similarly the playful feel of the shoot could also be used to depict the carefree journey of the Bride in the time before she is wed, and be the basis for a more elegnat bridal shower celebration.

The Bride is spending time with her best ladies, enjoying catching up, laughing and joking with her friends for the last time as a singleton before tying the knot.

These moments are precious for the Bride celebrating with people who are her biggest support, and the styling of the shoot could transcend to this.
