How to Throw the Ultimate Galentine’s Day Party

How to throw the ultimate Galentine’s Day Party

It’s approaching that time of year again, Cupid is about to come soaring down and make every lady around the globe want a little dose of romance in her life. But Valentine’s Day isn’t only for couples. You can also use this special day as an excuse to have a fun night in with your bffs. Since you may not have the time to scroll through Pinterest for party ideas, we teamed up with ProFlowers to give you a few quick tips to make sure your Galentine’s Day has the key ingredients. Namely pops of pink decor, chocolate treats and the perfect chick flick.

Step 1: Add touches of pink and red to create a festive look.

We love how Kasey from Styled by Kasey dressed her bar cart up for Valentine’s Day. She threw her Galentine’s Day get-together on a budget with lots of cute Target finds. Make sure to look through the dollar bins by the entrance for affordable and festive finds. If you are a craft queen, you could also DIY your own burlap garland for a simple, festive touch.

Step 2: Prepare lots of sweet treats.

No Valentine’s Day celebration is complete without chocolate. We recommend several forms – chocolate bars, brownies and other baked goods. Strawberries are a great addition to your spread. Not only do they pair nicely with all forms of chocolate, they also add a pretty pop of red. If you are in a hurry you can pick up festive, heart-shaped treats or even get your chocolate delivered!

Step 3: Bring on the bubbly!

The other mandatory for a festive Valentine’s Day celebration is sparkling wine. We love how Reichel from Copy Cat Chic went the extra mile and found some pink champagne. You can snag a bottle of bubbly regardless of your price range. Cava and prosecco are becoming more and more popular and can be purchased for less that £10! If you prefer dry sparkling wine that is less sweet opt for a non-vintage champagne or cava. For those who love sweet wines, try a bottle of prosecco. Vintage champagne or American sparkling wine can be a happy medium with nutty yet creamy flavours.

Step 4: Roll the movies.

Of course no Galentine’s Day party would be complete without a chick flick! To help you pick from all of the amazing choices, we created a quick guide with some of favourites. The first question you have to ask your girl friends – are you looking for laughs or tears?


We hope you and your girl squad have a fun night filled with hearts, chocolate and tons of cuteness! If you aren’t expecting a bouquet from a love interest, treat yourself and have your home looking extra lovely with a Valentine’s Day bouquet.
