How To Host A Galentine's Day Party!


Made famous by Leslie Knope of Parks And Recreation, celebrate Galentine's Day with your bestest lady friends on February 13. Since it falls on Friday this year, host a special evening with your girlfriends.

Whether you are married ladies or single and loving it, your gal pals are your support system so get together and celebrate girl power at its best.  Here are a few ways to celebrate a girls' night in.

Get the party started with lovely invitations; Ephemera's featured on 100 Layer Cake are a great way to start.

Set the party space by making this lovely and super simple XOXO painted tablecloth from Walk In Love.

Another lovely DIY, Hank &  Hunt's floating heart backdrop is perfect for group shots or hanging over a table.

I always have a craft at my parties, even for my grown-ups! Being creative is a perfect way to break the ice, especially if you have a mixed group who don't know each other.   I love this card-making table from The Glitter Guide...set out paper, markers, tape and stickers and let the creativity flow.

Have a few laughs and flirty fun with Rosanna's Vice Dice.

Sweets are a must...this lovely set up from 3 Little Picks showcases how to use Rosanna's Large Decor Bon Bon Footed Round Pedestals for pretty treats.

Another fabulous idea, serve gorgeous and homemade Fruity Dessert Pizzas from Peaches, Please.

Don't forget the libations...check out my 10 Ways To Style A Bar Cart for great tips for setting up a cocktails area.  For the non-drinkers, dress up drink bottles with easy-to-make origami hearts and paper straws.

A sweet printables from The TomKat Studio tied to nail polish bottles.

How do you celebrate with your girlfriends?
