Valentine’s Day is approaching, but let’s not forget about an equally important holiday that occurs on February 13th — Galentine’s Day! Single or taken, you can still celebrate this special day with your closest girlfriends. Here’s your guide to the perfect Galentine’s Day so you and your friends can enjoy an evening of fun — virtually or safely in person.
Pick a Theme
For a night in with the girls, choose a fun theme! Perhaps you can make it pajama themed, and everyone can get comfy and cozy. Or, make it a cocktail party where everyone puts on their fanciest dress. No matter what, you and your best friends will love to dress for the occasion! Be sure to carry the theme out through every aspect of your Galentine’s Day — from the decorations and activities to food and drinks.
Decorating is Key
No party is complete without the perfect decor. Be sure to get balloons, streamers, and more to set the mood. This adorable banner from Party City will be a perfect backdrop. Additionally, this beautiful balloon garland will be the final touch for a beautifully decorated space. Get creative! The decor options are endless. Whether you’re celebrating in person or via Zoom, these decorations will set the mood.
Stock Up on Snacks and Drinks
Think about it; every good party involves food and drinks. To make your Galentine’s Day sweet, prepare some baked goods ahead of time. Perhaps you could also hop on the charcuterie board trend. Of course, if you do this, it’s only right that wine is involved. Don’t let your friends go hungry (or thirsty)! Even if you’re hosting a virtual party, you should certainly grab a few snacks and drinks for yourself. Also consider sending out snack and cocktail recipes ahead of time so you and your gal pals can share the same menu, near or far.
Plan Out Fun Games
What will you do at your get-together? Play games, of course! Virtual or not, you can still play games. Think of all the typical games, like Never Have I Ever or Truth or Dare. Or, get a fun card game like “Who’s Most Likely To” or “For the Girls.” No matter what you choose, these games can be done via Zoom or in person. Get ready for stories, laughs, and a whole lot of fun.
This year, celebrate Galentine’s Day with your best friends. After all, your friends are always there for you! It’s time to get together and celebrate those friendships.
