Galentines is a day to celebrate your friends and tell them how much you love them…especially after that third dirty martini. Whether you’re in a couple or not, February 13th is a holiday for all. It’s the perfect day to raise a glass and sparkle with your best pals, and we can help you get the party started.
Galentine’s is a new tradition and can be celebrated however you want. But check out the following suggestions on how to really amp up your party and bring the sparkle. You know we love a themed affair!
Dress the Part
Let’s be honest. Everyone dresses better for a night out with their friends than with their partner. Your S.O. might be okay with you looking like Adam Sandler, but your friends deserve a little extra effort. We’re talking shades of pinks/reds, feathers, and fringe - of course. If dresses aren’t your thing, opt for a fun jacket (might we suggest tinsel?) or a bright pink sequin pant with matching crop top.
Did we stutter? We said, put.hearts.everywhere. Heart plates, balloons, and ramekins. Any kind of heart shaped beauties you can find - add it to your decor list for the evening. We’ve heard Target and Dollar General have some solid picks this year but make sure to get there before they’re all gone.
Who doesn’t love to give or receive flowers around this time of the year? Flowers are a sweet decor to place around the table. Pinks, whites, and red is the color scheme-obviously. Roses, peonies, and mums are always a safe choice that everyone will love. They’re even a great gift for your friends to take home after.
Food / Drink
Whether you’re a cook or not, food is a great way to show someone you love them. Chocolate dipped strawberries, heart-shaped cakes, and a classic charcuterie board are some yummy treat options. As for drinks, pink lady mimosas, strawberry margaritas, and rosé are good places to start. If you’re running short on time, some pizza brands like Papa Johns and Papa Murphy’s have heart shaped pizzas!
