It isn’t always the easiest feat gathering friends and family for the holidays and special occasions due to busy, conflicting schedules. Every now and then we all have to temporarily put our busy schedules on the back burner and just have fun! In this case, maybe you have already heard of or celebrated “Galentine’s Day” in the past. If not, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) in Parks and Recreation made this Pre-Valentine’s Day occasion popular 5 years ago in the second season’s 16th episode and she explained it best: “Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and boyfriends at home, and we kick it breakfast style. It’s ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair minus the angst. Plus, frittatas.”
The females in my life didn’t kick this “Galentine’s Day” off breakfast style, but we did kick it off Shari’s Berries style to help celebrate our friendship and kinship! Shari’s Berries generously sent Two Full Dozen Gourmet Dipped Premium Strawberries ($59.97), Chocolate Velvet Boule Cake ($54.99), and English Toffee ($24.99).
Not only “Galentine’s Day” is the perfect way to catch up with each other while nibbling on succulent sweets, but you can also have a game or/and movie night by watching chick flicks. Just steer clear away from The Best of Me, unless you have at least five boxes of Kleenex on standby.
As you can see, cakes don’t ship easily without getting messed up in the process. However, this didn’t sacrifice the deliciousness of the Chocolate Velvet Boule Cake. The Chocolate Velvet Boule Cake is a chocolate glazed cake in shape of a dome. Inside, it’s filled with a velvety chocolate mousse!
I got some chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries a few years ago and they were AMAZING. They were the best I had ever had!
Oh my gosh, those treats look wonderful and delicious and decadent!! I want them all! I had never heard of Galentine’s day before, but what a great idea. Def. on my radar for next year.

I have never heard of Galentine’s Day before, lol. I like the idea though, like you can erase all the Valentine’s reminders if you’re not choosing to be alone, and just have a fun time with your girlfriends!

These Sharis berries look decadent!! We got a set of chocolate covered strawberries from there as a present one year and they were delicious. I had no idea they made cakes and toffee. I will have to check it out and would love to plan a Galentines Day!!

The Chocolate Velvet Boule Cake looks amazing! I need to find a place like Shari’s Berries in the UK!
Cute! I do like the idea of having a yearly reason for a girl’s night (or day) out. I definitely don’t get to goof off and eat chocolate covered strawberries often enough with my gal pals.
This is the first time I’ve heard of Galintine’s Day. I don’t mind another excuse for eating Shari’s Berries though!

My girlfriends have been trying to get together more regularly now that our children are a little older. These berries would be such a sweet treat to share with them (or to hide in a closet and eat by myself).
