Galentine’s Party: The Nook Girls Edition

The Nook Girls are so excited to finally share our

Galentine’s Party and styled shoot!

For those who are new, the Nook Girls, Rachel and Allison, are lifestyle bloggers in Raleigh, NC. We enjoy bringing bloggers together in the area to learn from each other and grow together as bloggers and social media influencers.
Recently, we put together a styled shoot of our Galentine’s Day party where we invited our blogger friends to enjoy cranberry ginger spritzers, strawberry trifles, chocolate covered marshmallows, and Southern Sugar Bakery’s adorable cookies. Allison’s home was styled and decorated with calligraphy pieces from Bridgett Lynette Designs, home pieces from Anthropologie, and pieces from Rachel and Allison’s own collections.
Rachel and Allison were styled by Melissa de Leon Styling using Anthropologie’s latest dresses and jewelry. They also were treated to hair and makeup at their favorite blow dry bar, Parlor Dry Bar in North Raleigh, which was the perfect relaxation after work and before the party, HIGHLY recommend them! The other beautiful bloggers arrived to the party in their own styled outfits fit for a Valentine’s soiree.
 The evening was photographed by the very talented and graceful Ally Willix, a fine art wedding photographer based in Raleigh, NC.
The Nook Girls purpose and hope for this party was to treat and encourage the blogger community with inspiration and community. We often host others in their home, they would love to share with you: how to host an awesome party with limited time and money:

  1. Looks like fun girls’ day. So nice to see you all (ya’ll) supporting and loving each other. BTW…One of my besties is one Nancy Creagh. As a couple of older “girls”, we can tell you how important it is to have strong girlfriend relationships. We were slightly older than most of you when we became friends, but I can tell you after more than 20 years of friendship, I know I can always count on her. Keep it up girls! We need our girlfriends!
