Grab your gal pals and celebrate in style! Date or no date, your friends will always be there to share a drink or two with. OIP has kicked off our Valentines Day celebrations early, and what better way to do it than with a girlfriend, or two! This celebration of friendship has been shared over a delicious brunch setting at Rivers Edge Events, overviewing the beautiful Melbourne South Wharf. Bubbles, cocktails and delicious treats were in an abundance!
A brunch cannot be complete without a lavish table setting! The napkins and table cloth have been provided by Table Art Event Hire. A beautiful base that aided in contrasting the bright and fun colours of the acrylic signage, 'Bae Mine' decal and personalised gift boxes by Jane & Co. Stunning flowers were provided by Botanics Melbourne, which not only aided in adding height to the table decoration but also added an organic element to the ornate love heart balloon garland by Ready To Partea.
DESSERTS GALORE & GETTING GLAMMED
Spoilt for choice our gals Merrin, Jess and Zoe indulged in #girlgang inspired treats from Baking Workshop. Kissable cookies, a delectable cake and the cutest cupcakes garnished our desserts table. A great contrast to be had with mini burgers and waffle tower provided by Rivers Edge.
Pretty pink eye make up by Sarah Fritz Make Up gave the girls a modern pop of colour that tied in perfectly with the girly Galentines Day theme. Whilst soft waves created by Hair Couture By Steph aided in achieving the girl's glamorous look for their celebratory brunch.
BUBBLES & BARRELS
Wine, perfume, make up and shoes - gift giving cannot be complete without them! Wine from Pord Australia has made the classic cask of wine a lot more stylish! These unique mini barrels are not only an art piece themselves, but provide three litres of wine to share (or not to share) between you and your friends! Paired perfectly with Plumm Wine Glasses, this Melbourne based glassware brand come in an abundance of shapes and sizes, to conveniently aid to any occasion!

Fragrances were provided by Lore Perfumery, a local Melbourne business who specialise in niche perfumes. Their fragrances will sure be a sensory delight!
