Oh, Valentine’s Day. That February day where we profess our love to someone. We send flowers, give cards and gifts and it’s a day when love blooms for all to see. But what about other kinds of love? Shouldn’t they be celebrated too? This is where Galentine’s Day comes in, you know, you and your ‘girls’ celebrate Valentine’s Day but with a twist.
Sometimes girls just want to get together and have a nice party and what better day than Valentine’s Day to do just that? I mean, there are flowers galore, everything is girly pink and red, it just screams party! These parties can run the gamut from casual to all-out, and can include games, photo booths, food machines, and the like. You can have a tea party with your closest friends or a gala fit for royalty, it’s all up to you.
We all love taking photos and if you are dressed for a party, it is the perfect time to create some memories. If you create a heart with flowers, it can become a pretty backdrop for those photos or you can decorate a large frame with flowers, hearts, balloons, and paint for another cute accessory. In fact, balloon clusters in all shades of pink and red, hearts and lips make a great photo backdrop on their own, and of course they can also easily be moved to the table for a grand piece. central.
Food machines are a great addition to any party as they allow guests to serve themselves, leaving the host free to enjoy the party and not spend all night in the kitchen. Things like cotton candy makers add whimsy and of course more pink to Galentine’s festivities and who can resist an old-fashioned popcorn machine or mobile frozen treat cart full of delicious creamy treats?
A high tea with snacks or a dessert party complete with champagne, the choice is yours, but what better way to get all your girlfriends together for a fun night out? If you really want to amp up the decor, how about creating a heart-shaped flower centerpiece? When each guest leaves the party, she can take a flower or two home with her, because who doesn’t love flowers?
The best part about Galentine’s Day parties is the fact that you can get together with your girls for a great night at home!
