I will forever be grateful for the idea of “Galentine’s Day” from the show Parks and Rec. While I love Valentine’s Day and the celebration of romantic love, I was so thrilled when the idea of a unique day to focus on celebrating friendship with your girlfriends became popular. You know me – I will take any excuse to celebrate. But celebrating my amazing gal pals is one of my favorite excuses! If you’re excited about honoring your besties this year for Galentine’s Day (often celebrated on February 13th) but aren’t sure how, check out these 13 Galentine’s Day Party Ideas from me and some of my favorite gal pals!
13 Galentine’s Day Party Ideas to Celebrate Friendship
Who doesn’t love dipping stuff in cheese and chocolate?! Throw a festive and fun Fondue Night for your friends with both cheese and chocolate. The fondue makes the food more interactive, which is always a plus. I also provide FREE printable signs and favor recipe cards so your party planning is even easier for you! Get details HERE.
Speaking of interactive parties, I love celebrations that have entertaining activities built in. My girlfriends and I had so much fun at a Flower Arranging Party where we learned how to create gorgeous floral arrangements from an expert (who also happened to be one of my lovely friends). This would make a great Galentine’s Day Party where your girls can learn a new skill while celebrating your friendship! Get details HERE.
This brightly colored modern Geometric Heart Themed Party is full of energy and cuteness. Plus, I have instructions for how to create a big and bold geometric heart backdrop with colored masking tape! Inexpensive but with a big impact. Get details HERE.
