Today, take a cue from our dream best friend Leslie Knope  and host a Galentine's Day  party! "What's Galentine's Day? Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!"
Designed and photographed by Brooke Courtney  over at Walk in Love , this bright, fun, and sparkly party setup would be perfect for celebrating the amazing women in your life — single or not — this Valentine's Day.
Remember, no boys allowed!
