Who needs a significant other when you have your best friends!
The day that every single person in the world completely dreads is sneaking up on us quicker than ever – Valentine’s Day. There’s no better way to find yourself feeling down in the dumps than seeing all your coupled friends spending Valentine’s Day with their significant others, and no matter what social media you’re bingeing on you can’t escape the cheesy posts and lovey dovey pictures. It’s as if they’re trying to make you feel alone! The plain and simple solution to picking yourself back up and showing yourself some love when you most deserve it is hosting a Galentine’s Day Party! Invite the single ladies over, mix some drinks, and sing karaoke at the top of your lungs! Even if you have a significant other, every woman needs some quality time with her girl friends, so why not make a new tradition and spend Valentine’s Day showing your ladies some love instead of your significant other (they get enough of it every other day of the year anyway)! This year go against the norm! Get your girl friends together, pop open the champagne, and follow these tips on How to Throw a Chic Galentine’s Day Party!
Before you’re able to host a Galentine’s Day Party, you have to make sure your girlfriends know all about it! While you can easily send a text to your besties and invite them that way, receiving an invitation in the mail is always more exciting! There are tons of invitation templates you can find right online and print yourself, like this one, or get crafty, break out the construction paper and markers, and make one from scratch.
Almost important as the invitations is the party décor! There are tons of creative ways you can deck out your home to make it look Galentine’s Day ready! A simple decoration that can easily be made on your own is a heart banner! Cut some hearts out of red cardstock, punch two holes in the top, and lace twine throughout to create a festive banner. Use your décor for entertainment as well, and create a photobooth for you and your friends! Blow up some balloons, tape them to your wall, and designate it as the backdrop for all your silly wine-induced photo shoots!
A party wouldn’t be a party without yummy snacks and drinks, and the presentation of the food is almost as important as how delicious the food actually tastes. An inexpensive way to deck out your table for this special day is to buy a white table cloth and draw x’s and o’s all over in a black sharpie. Buy an inexpensive bag of red and pink pompoms and sprinkle them down the center to act as a table runner!
While Valentine’s Day could be spent with your significant other, eating a classy dinner with glasses of wine, Galentine’s Day sounds much better, as it’s all about getting drunk with your best girl friends. Find two or three delicious sounding drinks online, and set up your own drink bar! Pink Strawberry Sangria, Cupid Floats, and Raspberry Champagne Floats are not only delicious, but they’re super easy to make and will look chic with your Galentine’s Day décor!
An easy and delicious route to take when hosting a Galentine’s Day party is to opt for brunch! A waffle, pancake, or yogurt bar could not be easier, and it gives your ladies options to customize it to their taste buds!
No one can every say no to dessert, and since Valentine’s Day is all about flowers and chocolate, you HAVE to offer your favorite ladies some sweet treats! You don’t have to go too crazy though! Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are easy to make, and look adorable when turned into lollipops! If you want to challenge your baking skills, try making some delicious Red Velvet Cake Bites.
You can’t have a party without a rockin’ playlist! The thing is, the songs on the radio are played out, so it’s up to you to create the perfect anthem to your Galentine’s Day bash! When it comes to dancing and singing at the top of your lungs with your favorite girls, you can never go wrong with some Beyonce and Miley Cyrus! These songs are perfect for karaoke with the ladies!
Nobody likes to leave a party empty handed! In the spirit of Galentine’s Day, send your ladies home with your favorite shade of red nail polish. Dress them up with these cute printable tags and they’ll be the perfect party favor.
