Galentine’s Day is celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day each year. It is a special day to celebrate all the friends in your life that make your life better. Whether you are single or in a relationship, this day is an important time to remember and rejoice in all people in your life that make you happy. To help celebrate this special day, you may want to throw a Galentine’s Day party.
1) Use Decor
One of the best ways to create a great and memorable party is to use unique party decor to dress up the room. Party decor can help elevate any party into an oasis. Some of the best decor items to use for a Galentine’s Day party are streamers, candles, centerpieces, lanterns, balloons, and more. There are endless options for each party, so try to find some that speak to the overall theme and personality of you and your friends.
2) Food and Drink
No party is complete with food and drinks. Try to have an assortment of snacks and finger foods for you and your friends. Rather than trying to cater the party all by yourself, ask each friend to bring one snack or drink. This will help you fill the food table and ensure that each guest feels like they contributed to the party. Some ideas include wine, punch, chips and dip, sandwiches, vegetables, and fruit.
You should try to have some background music playing throughout the party. You can play your favorite playlist or even make a new playlist that is filled with songs about love and friendship. The music you play can help set the mood for the rest of the party and get everyone excited.
Try to play some games throughout the party. This is a great way to start or end the party. It can make any feelings of anxiety or sadness go away, especially for those who may be single this time of year. Some ideas for games include bingo, would you rather, twenty questions, traditional board games, how well do you know a person, and more. Get creative with the games that you use and try to make them unique. You can offer small prizes for winners to help build up the competition and excitement.
5) Gift Bags
When all of your guests leave the party, you may want to send them off with gift bags. In each gift bag try including some personalized gifts, like a picture of you with each person. You can then fill the gift bags with small gifts, including candles, candy, soaps, lotions, nail files, a card, and more. Rather than simply letting each person pick up a bag on their way out, you should try to customize the outside of the bag. Write each person’s name on the bag so that they feel more special and so they know that you thought about them specifically.
There is no right or wrong way to throw the perfect Galentine’s Day party. If you are looking to celebrate the love and friendship that you and your friends have, try using these tips to plan your party. Everyone will be excited that you thought enough about them to throw a special party.
