But first…what is Galentine’s Day?

Created by the character Leslie Knope in one of our fave Parks and Recreation episodes, Galentine’s Day takes place on February 13th and is all about celebrating female friendship and honoring the incredible women in your life. Whereas Valentine’s Day is about romantic love, Galentine’s Day is a day to express appreciation for your gal pals (hence the name GALentine’s Day). Whether it's your first Galentine's Day or an annual tradition, let’s make it a celebration to remember!

Galentine’s Day Party Hosting Tips

Invitations

Set the tone for your party with festive, creative invites. Add your own personal touch to your invites with a design platform like Canva, or choose a Galentine’s evite from a site like Paperless Post. Pick a festive design that will make your friends excited about your event and inform them of any key details like a pink-only dress code or sweetheart gift exchange! Trust us, this will set the tone that it’s a party vs a last minute get together and get your besties excited too!

Decorations

Transform your home into a love shack with pink and red accents, heart-shaped décor, a Valentine’s Day pink balloon garland, and of course, tons of confetti! 

Sweet Treats

Whether you bake them yourself or head to the local bakery, sweet treats are a MUST for any Galentine’s Day celebration! Pink and red cupcakes, heart-shaped cookies, and candy hearts are some of our faves. Better yet – make an activity out of it! Set up a cookie decorating station or have a bake off.  

Cheers to Your Dears

The difference between a great party and a good one? A signature cocktail! Serve ‘em up in festive Valentine’s Day cups like these Packed Party Disco Heart Sipper! Pro tip: Whip up a big pitcher of something pink and fun before your guests arrive so you don’t have to play bartender all night.

Our go-to easy Galentine’s cocktail:

Valentine’s Day Sparkling Rosé French 75

  • 3 oz gin
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • Shake up with ice and top with sparkling rosé
  • Add 1/2 tsp of pink edible glitter dust
  • Pour into our Disco Heart Sippers & enjoy!

For a non-alcoholic Galentine’s drink, we love grapefruit seltzer with muddled berries and the edible glitter too!

Galentine’s Day Sweetheart Gift Exchange

Encourage your guests to bring small gifts and do a Sweetheart Exchange (similar to White Elephant!). Set a budget to keep it simple and set a theme, like everything pink! Check out our Galentine’s Day gift guide for ideas for gifts under $25!

Galentine’s Day Playlist

It wouldn’t be a party without a good playlist! Head to our Spotify and throw on our Galentine’s Party Playlist or create a shared playlist so all of your friends can add their fave songs about love.

HAPPY GALENTINE’S DAY PARTY GIRLS! ❤️
