Leslie Knope said it best, "It's only the best day of the year! It's like Lilith fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas." I heart Galentine's Day so hard!
And just because a long, day time lunch might not work with the busy schedules of your squad, doesn't mean you have to skip this hallowed day!
Today I'm sharing a few tips + tricks to throw together a quick Galentine's Bash worthy or Ms. Knope herself!
First things first, you need to get your ladies together! There's no rule that says you must celebrate your fellow females on February the 13th. The rules of the girl code clearly states, any date is an appropriate date to gather! A quick text or email invite will give your gals a chance to hash out schedules so everyone can make it!
Spruce up your venue! Snag some flowers from a nearby grocery store and toss them in a cute vase. (This lady one is a favorite of ours!) Set a side a few stems of spray roses to create a cute backdrop for the food + bar. See below!
For this simple install, I just cut each bud off of the stem and used washi tape to secure to wall in a random-y pattern. This would also make an insanely adorable backdrop for selfies!
It ain't a part without a little bubbly! For this get together, we kept everything in a pink color scheme. This grapefruit vodka mixed with sprite is one of my favorite cocktails and pink champagne looks extra festive in February!
Jazz up your drinks with these washi tape drink stirrers! These quick project takes all of two minutes! Just cut wooden skewers down to size for your glasses and add some washi tape to the top. Trim into a flag shape and done! So simple, so cute!
No ladies shall be stuck in the kitchen! Time with your ladies is limited! Spend more of it together, by picking up pre-made treats. Ain't no shame here, doll. We snagged some fresh donuts and frozen desserts from our beloved Trader Joe's and piled them high on pretty cake stands!
Don't miss a moment! The girls had such a blast passing around our instax mini camera and snapping polaroid photos to take home after the party!
Now you're ready to throw together that last minute Galentine's Bash you and your ladies deserve! And if you need a little motivation to get started, just say this, "I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior" and get cracking!
What's your favorite way to celebrate your fellow ladies? Any other quick party ideas? Don't keep them a secret! Share below!
