Galentines Party Ideas

Galentine’s Day puts the spotlight on your favorite ladies! Gather gal pals for a bash celebrating besties! Long before the significant others, boxes of chocolate and flower bouquets, you had your squad of soul sisters. That BFF bond gets the spotlight on February 13, better known as Galentine’s Day. Browse our ideas for the perfect makings of a celebration that’s all about treating yourself and friends to food and fun.

Idea 1: Eat your heart out over stylish plateware

Red and pink hearts abound during the Valentine’s season, but add the color gold and you get an on-trend update. Plates, cups and lovey-dovey table decor in pops of red, pink and gold make the celebration with your gal pals effortlessly chic.

Idea 2: Set hearts aglow with a DIY light-up marquee!

Try out this Pinterest-worthy decor idea! Cut out large 'X' and 'O' letters from white foam boards and line the letters with strips of black poster board. Remove the heart-shaped casing on the lights and then poke the bulb through the foam. Reattach the cases and adhere the lights in place with hot glue.

Idea 3: Love at first fry!

For a party that's about ladies celebrating food and friendship, make sure yummy appetizers are first on the agenda. This “fries before guys” food idea does just that! Place this savory snack into doily-lined cordial cups, and add heart sticker clings on each container for a sweet touch! On a sparkly chalkboard, write a clever quip like “fries before guys” to celebrate your gal pals and fondness for food before dudes!

Idea 4: Treat yourself and gal friends to the sweet stuff

Do more than tell your gal pals that they rock—show it with rock candy and other goodies in the form of a candy buffet! A red, pink and gold scheme makes your candy buffet work as delicious party decor in addition to a sweet take-home favor.

Idea 5: Share dessert love with your favorite gal friends!

Galentine’s Day is all about the friendships with your gal pals and a sweet celebration of food before dudes. Make them chuckle with a scrumptious display of mini cheesecakes with berries on glam plates and a clever chalkboard sign that declares “cheesecakes before beefcakes”!

Idea 6: Heart this pink-alicious idea!

Try this pink-alicious idea: Pour strawberry milk into mini plastic wine glasses and place a pink heart sugar cookie on top. Sprinkle pink and purple conversation hearts on a serving tray and arrange your glasses on top for a sweet touch.

Idea 7: Turn bliss into bite-sized!

This trendy take on crispy rice treats has more heart. Start with your favorite crispy rice squares recipe and add your fave colorful heart sprinkles. Stick a trendy striped straw in each treat and dip them in yummy light pink Candy Melts®. (For light pink color, mix pink and white melts.) We love how they look served on red doilies for a vintage candy shoppe look!

Idea 8: Go bold with a heartfelt backdrop!

For a gathering that puts the bond of friendships in the spotlight, set the stage for love! Start with a kit full of fans and lanterns; add a tassel garland, and top off with heart cutouts on the walls and table—this look of love is one that your friends will love!

Idea 9: Blow them away with a charming backdrop!

When it comes to balloons, make their “pop” work for you by making your decor pop with color! Line a handful of balloons of various metallic sheens against the wall, and seal it with hugs and kisses in the form of a “XO” balloon bouquet!
