How to Throw a Memorable Galentine’s Day
Nope-that is not a typo. Galentine’s Day (held on February 13th) is the Valentine’s Day for the gal pals in your life. The “holiday” became known through a 2010 Parks and Recreation episode, and we are here to fully embrace it in all of its awesomeness.
Whether it’s just you and another friend or a large group of pals, our tips to throw the ultimate Galentine’s Day bash will make this memorable event one of your favorite shindigs to host. So this year, instead of hating the holiday of love, get all of your lady friends together to celebrate the holiday of gal pals.
Step 1: Decorations
All good parties start with awesome décor. Make sure for this special event you have fun with the decorations. For laughs (and to innocently poke fun) print out Valentine’s day memes and frame them all around. Someecards has lots of memes you can use for inspiration. Such as this one:
Step 2: Food
Valentine’s Day is all about chocolate and strawberries, but Galentine’s day is about both of those AND everything else that is high in carbs and sugar. Don’t skimp out on the cookies, cakes, ice cream, and of course…wine. We like to add these Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie Bites to our dessert table.
Last, but definitely not least, is the playlist for your party. You cannot have a solid girl’s night without a fun playlist to accompany it. Here are some songs that scream girl power and friendship.
