How to Throw the Perfect Galentine’s Day Party

Galentine’s Day is a relatively new spinoff holiday from Valentine’s Day that occurs on February 13th. On this day each year, groups of gal pals get together to enjoy a meal. Here are some tips on throwing a successful Galentine’s Day party for all your lady friends:


 

1. Send snail mail invites.

 

Mailed Invites

 

In the world of emails and texts, receiving a piece of snail mail is a rarity. Invite your best gal pals over with a mailed invitation.


 

2. Set up a small photobooth.

Create a simple backdrop for any pictures that might be taken at the party. Whether it’s three or 10 people, your guests will enjoy having a fun place to snap a few Instagrams during the party.


 

3. Set a festive table.

Whether you’re doing brunch, lunch, dinner, or just desserts, have a table set that’s full of fun and festive stuff-this is the kind of party where kitschier is always better.


 

4. Use handmade party favors as centerpieces.

 

Floral Letters

 

It’s a small detail that won’t go unnoticed. Make several floral letters so that after the party, they can be given out as favors to guests. It’d be hard to find anyone, child or adult, who doesn’t love a good party favor. To avoid giving the standard (but delicious) gift of chocolate, give them DIY plant holder that will also double as a lovely centerpiece.


 

5.Let no dessert go unmade.

 

Dessert Table

 

Have plenty of desserts. Cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, doughnuts, or a mixture of all these and more are the perfect dessert spread for a fun party where calories don’t count.


 

6. Make sure there’s more than enough to drink.

 

Glitter Champagne

 

Provide your guests with fun drinks. Whether it’s a new hot chocolate recipe or a fancy cocktail, they’ll enjoy a Valentine-themed drink. Or, ask a few friends to bring a drink to share with the group.
