The day for love, affection, and (best of all) chocolate is approaching, and what better way to spend it than with your gals? There’s no need to hassle with booking reservations or hitting local bars when you can experience the love from home– by throwing your own Galentine’s Party! Spread the love and warmth through frills, lace, and chocolate-covered strawberries with these helpful tips.
When you think of Valentine’s Day, roses, hearts, and bows may cross your mind– which is exactly what you need to vamp up your party! It’s needless to invest hundreds of dollars on decorations when you can doll up your house with a little DIY. You can go to your local Walmart and get everything you need for just under $50. Buy a slim ribbon and tie a pink bow around your champagne flutes, or make your own chocolate-dipped strawberries instead of paying the egregious prices your local bakery charges. It may not be the perfect dip, but that’s what makes the process fun. A little effort can go a long way!
Looking for a cute Galentine’s photo opportunity? This heart backdrop provides you with the perfect background to take some cute pictures with your friends, on top of being affordable and hassle-free. Absolute heart eyes for this set!
Are the pinks and red associated with Valentine’s Day not your thing? No worries, this is your party! Sometimes those colors are a little traditional, but this dark and edgy backdrop + minimal neutral decor offers the perfect Galentine’s decor to stand out and express yourself.
Elevate your drinks with the stylish twist! All it takes is some ribbon and the ability to tie a bow, and you’re all set to drink with class! If you want to take things up a notch, rim your glass with white frosting and pink sprinkles and enjoy your sweet sip!
There’s more to hosting a Galentine’s get-together than just the decorations, which is why it’s important to include something fun that all your friends can join in and enjoy! Have your friends bring over a couple of Valentine-themed cocktails to showcase their fabulous bartending skills and add a personalized touch to the night!
Chocolate covered raspberry martini
All it takes is a combination of raspberry vodka, chocolate liqueur, and white creme de cacao for you and the gals to have the tastiest drink of the party. If you want to add a little more sweetness to this enjoyable drink, garnish the rim with chocolate sauce and pink sprinkles!
For all the rum and Aperol lovers out there, this drink is for you. Mix a few ounces of white rum, Aperol, and pineapple juice, and you have yourself a sweet and fruity drink to enjoy throughout the night!
Cotton candy champagne
This drink adds a playful twist to your normal champagne. All you need is to grab your favorite bottle, garnish it with strawberry cotton candy, and enjoy!
Alcohol doesn’t suit everyone’s taste on the holiday of love, and that’s okay! You can always find recipes for the perfect mocktails and still have tons of fun with your gals. If you’re looking for a more cooperative activity, making your favorite treats together is the perfect opportunity for one. Instead of buying chocolate-covered strawberries at the store, grab some strawberries and your favorite chocolate and make them yourselves! Add some pretzel sticks, marshmallows, and angel food cake to that chocolate mixture, and you’ll have the cutest (and low-cost) treats to snack on all night long.
Hosting a Galentine’s Party means you have the freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want. Whether you decide to doll up in your best attire or ditch the dress for a pair of cute heart pajamas, take some pics, hang with your gals, and most of all, have fun!
