WHAT IS GALENTINE’S DAY?!??
This is the history behind this day~ it was created by a fictional character: Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation. In 2010, the second season of Parks and Recreation included an episode called “Galentine’s Day,” in which Leslie gathers a group of her closest gal pals for a brunch of waffles and love.
In the past few years, these Galentine celebrations have become more popular, and I’m not mad about it. Friendships should be celebrated throughout the year, but this is a day set apart to show that love + enjoyment. It could be breakfast style, but the sky is the limit when planning this fun day.
HOW TO DECORATE??!?
First of all, I ordered everything from Amazon and Target. And, I turned our living room into a red and pink party zone. And, no boys allowed!! I used as many items that I already had and added lots of heart balloons to the mix.
Linking everything below for y’all.
WHAT I PURCHASED
WHAT TO EAT??!?
Galentine’s Day is traditionally a brunch, but there are no rules.
We went with a dessert charcuterie board + coffee from Dunkin’. It was perfect.
We did have breakfast board + fresh juice the day before with some of these same friends which is another cute idea. A waffle or pancake bar is an affordable + cute idea. Another cute idea would be a pizza bar. Y’all can create your own heart shaped pizzas. I have more ideas pinned here on Pinterest!!
WHAT WE ADDED TO THE DESSERT CHARCUTERIE BOARD:
chocolate covered strawberries
white chocolate pretzel rods
lots of other red and pink candy
WHAT WE WORE??!?
We went with Valentine themed pajamas, but it can just be casual, loungewear.
Or, it can be cute, fancy attire if you go with a dance party. Wearing pink or red is always a must in my book. I’ll link some of my favorite Valentine themed pj’s below.
WHAT WE ARE WEARING
WHAT TO DO??!?
Ok, we have the friends, the cute decor, and the yummy food.
This can just be a fun time with lots of girl talk, but more can be added to the agenda like movie night with a chick flick, karaoke, wild dance party (TikTok dance challenge), or game night. I found some fun game ideas on Etsy and saved it on Pinterest!!!
And, we always love to throw some heart gushes into the mix. Add an affirmation circle + have some tissue handy. This is always a crowd favorite amongst my friends.
Hope that this helped!! And, you still have plenty of time to plan something before next weekend!!!!
