February is here and for many that means roses and chocolates and romantic dinners. I personally prefer a Galentine’s celebration- you know instead of roses, bring out the rosé and indulge in those chocolates with your gal pals… Bring on the chatter, celebrate friendship and just have a lovely time because- why not?
And what better time in history for women to come together and celebrate sisterhood 😉
First, Lee and I took small valentines decor and placed them inside the empty frames I already had hanging. Next, we decided to drape fabric for a romantic look. We had some help with that part since we are a little short for the job. To be able to hang the fabric in the middle, we placed a hook onto the wall (the removable kind). We added flowers for a feminine touch. To add a cozy feel, we added baskets, pretty pillows, and a throw.
What party is complete without sweets and booze? This is just to give you an idea of what you can do, of course. You can have appetizers, a candy buffet; etc. For our dessert table, we went with Malerie’s delicious tres leches cupcakes- which are seriously- muy rico! She garnished the cupcakes with strawberries shaped as hearts and gold heart sprinkles. They went perfectly with the decor.
Other things you can add are flowers- we went with fake flowers since I have a lot at the studio for decor but fresh also work beautifully. The mini cake stand and arrow are both from Target and were both only $3 each. See how affordable a little Galentine’s day party can be?
To add to the fun, Lee made photo booth props. The best thing about a party with your gal pals are the pictures. Can you say- instagram envy?
Do you celebrate Galentine’s day with your girlfriends?
