An unintentionally romantic picnic

I spent Valentine's Day having a picnic with the girls (I've only just been alerted to the term "Galentine's Day"). It wasn't really planned, we'd wanted a picnic and today just happened to be the day everyone was free. It did end up being a bit Valentine's themed.


Our feast for the day. Note the weird-ass frog on the doughnut bag Jenny brought. We also had macarons and cake after Mel and YY appeared.



Perfect picnic weather today. Sunny, but not too warm, and no wind to blow things away.


I hadn't realised how long my hair is now (hair appointment has been booked).


Really good spinach dip Wai Lam had made.


A grown-up spider - sparkling rosé and berry sorbet.

Happy Valentine's Day guys! If you really hate it... hope you had a good day anyway.

  6. Why did no one ever tell me about 'Galentine's Day'? I always find out about these things too late. Gorgeous photos! I'm missing the sun so badly in the UK. Hope you had a great day, all the food looks delicious!

  7. Looks like you enjoyed your day without men - Lucky you! My boyfriend is hundreds of miles away and the girls here are having a "single ladies" party - I'm not invited, because I have a boyfriend. It's an aweful day for me. Gr.

  12. I have never heard anyone call Valentines day Galentines before, but I definitely will be using it in the future. Too much relevance to my own self. And you look like you had so much fun! The sparkling rose and sorbet sounds delicious :)

  34. Oh wow, like I didn't miss spring enough before I saw this post. I have this intense longing for picnic weather. Sadly every piece of grass is covered in +50cm of snow.

    Beautiful pictures though :)
