How to Create a Galentine’s Day You’ll Never Forget
Valentine’s Day isn’t the only important holiday in the month of February, especially if you have a close group of girlfriends who always have your back. If you’re looking to celebrate how much you love your friends, then throwing an amazing Galentine’s Day party is a must! Follow these tips to make it a party you and your friends will never forget!
Send Out Personal Invites
When planning the perfect Galentine’s Day party, the first thing you need to do is figure out who to invite. If you are someone who has a lot of girlfriends in your life, you may want to narrow down your invite list, or you may decide to invite them all — it’s up to you!
Once you have a list of who you want to invite, the next step is to create personal invites! More often than not, people send their invites through email and social media. While it may be more convenient for casual events, sending a personalized invitation can make your guests feel more special than an online invite can. With that in mind, the best way to set high expectations for your Galentine’s Day event is to create personalized invites that all of your best friends will love.
One of the most common mistakes people make when they plan a party is they forget to plan any activities. It’s fun to get together with your best friends and chat, but if you don’t have anything else planned, your guests might start to get bored.
The activities you plan can be as casual or as extravagant as you want them to be. For example, you may decide to throw a more casual party where you play some fun Valentine’s Day-themed games, or you may take your party to a whole new level by hiring someone to do all of your nails, give massages, or something else that is fun and relaxing.
Serve Amazing Food
Food for your Galentine’s Day party should be another one of your top priorities. The type of food you serve might depend on the time of day you plan to host your event. If you plan to host your event mid-morning, you may decide to have brunch foods like waffles, crepes, and of course, mimosas. However, if you plan to make your Galentine’s Day party an evening affair, it’s a good idea to have at least something your guests can snack on, especially if you plan on serving alcohol.
Find a Venue
In order to host an event, you need a venue. Some of the most common places to host a Galentine’s Day party are at restaurants, favorite brunch spots, or even at your own home. It all depends on what you want to do at your Galentine’s Day party, how many people you want to invite, and how much space you will need. For example, if you plan to invite an intimate group of your closest friends, then hosting it at your own home may be the best way to make the event feel the most comfortable. However, if all you want to do is go out for a nice meal with your gal pals, then renting out a room or making a reservation at your favorite restaurant may be a better option.
Hand Out Party Favors
If you truly want to make your Galentine’s Day an event to remember, then party favors are a must. Party favors are a staple part of every kids’ birthday, but as you get older, they start to go out of style. By bringing back the tradition of party favors for your Galentine’s Day party, you will make a wonderful impression on your friends, and it will help them remember how much fun they had. Plus, Valentine’s Day is all about giving gifts to the ones you love, right?
