Valentine’s Day is just a month away and I have a fun + fabulous party idea to share with you! We all know how important our girlfriend relationships are and how much we need and love our best friends. Why not invite your favorite friends over for a casual brunch to celebrate the love? We’ve partnered with Simply Juice Drinks to bring you this Valentine’s Day Brunch, complete with a delicious Mimosa Bar!

Start with this darling printable “brunch and bubbles” invitation. Deliver or mail to your lucky guests a few weeks in advance so they can save the date! Download the free printable invitation design

A simple heart banner is easy to make and adds a darling festive touch to the party setup. Cut hearts from red cardstock, hole punch and string with twine.

To setup a Mimosa Bar, you’ll need: 

  • Glasses
  • Champagne
  • Variety of Juices
  • Fresh Fruit
  • Glass Pitchers or Carafes

We used the new premium line of Simply Juice Drinks and they were delicious! The new all-natural flavors include: Mixed Berry, Tropical and Fruit Punch which are all made with simple ingredients.

You can serve the juice drinks right out of the bottle, or pour them into glass pitchers or carafes. Printable tags showing the juice flavors add the perfect sweet touch. Download the free printable juice flavor labels

Typically, mimosas are equal parts champagne and juice. Leave it up to your guests to pour the desired amount. Champagne should always be poured first, then add the juice.

Offer a delicious selection of brunch fare to pair with those mimosas! Make it easy on yourself and ask each guest to bring something, or visit your local bakery for donuts, muffins and other favorites to serve. These mini yogurt parfaits are simple to make and delicious. Start by adding granola to the bottom of the jar, then squeeze vanilla yogurt in each jar using a resealable plastic bag (with the corner cut off) and top with fresh raspberries.

We never throw a party without cupcakes! They are just too cute not to include. Make these adorable “you are sweet” cupcake flags using a few basic supplies. Download the free printable cupcake flags

    What a great idea! Varying the size of details. I think it’s more visually interesting.

    I LOVE this!! I have printed out everything!! I plan to order some of the other items as well for my girlfriend’s brunch! However, when I tried to edit the invite it would not allow me to. Is there a way I can edit the invite?
