Galentine’s Day, celebrated on February 13th, is the perfect occasion to honor and cherish the incredible friendships in your life. Take this opportunity to throw the ultimate Galentine’s Day party that will be remembered for years to come.


Invitations: Set the Vibe

Start by crafting fun and creative invitations that reflect the theme of your party. Whether they are digital or handwritten notes, make sure to highlight the importance of friendship and the celebration. We love Paperless Post for beautiful and customizable virtual invites. 


Decorations: Embrace the Pink + Red

Transform your space with decorations that celebrate love and friendship. Think pink and red balloons, pink glassware and dishes, and personalized touches that showcase your appreciation for guests. We even put together a curated collection of shoppable items for your party, easy as that! Shop here


Dress Code: Glam Up for the Occasion

Encourage your guests to dress up in their favorite shades of pink, red, or any festive color that resonates with the theme. Reminisce by sourcing a polaroid camera (yes, they’re cool again!) to snap some photos to remember the evening by.


The Playlist: Dance the Night Away

Create a playlist filled with empowering feel-good music that celebrates friendship. Include everyone’s favorite songs and let the music set the tone for a night of fun and laughter. Don’t skip on throwback songs that you can all belt out together in the kitchen!


Games and Activities: Keep the Energy High

Organize games and activities that are both entertaining and heartwarming. Consider a Galentine’s Day trivia game or a karaoke session where everyone can sing their hearts out to classic love songs.


Food and Drinks: Indulge in Sweet Treats and Cocktails

Create a spread of treats that are both delicious and picture-worthy. Think heart-shaped cookies, cupcakes, or chocolate fondue with an assortment of treats to dip. Don’t forget to include the bubbly! 


Gratitude Circle: Express Your Appreciation

Wrap up the evening with a gratitude circle where everyone takes a moment to express their appreciation for the friendships in the room. Just a few minutes of intention at the end of the night will leave everyone feeling warm and cherished.


The most important aspect of the celebration is to cherish the bonds of friendship and create an atmosphere where everyone feels loved. Cheers!
