Hosting a Galentine’s Gathering

Let’s Go Girls… Celebrate LOVE With a Galentines Gathering!

Who says you have to limit the celebration of love to just Valentine’s Day?! The word ‘love’ is multifaceted, including the love of a partner, your family, and of course dear friends. Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating the love of a partner or spouse… but what about a day to celebrate your go-to girls?! The hit show Parks and Recreation was certainly onto something when they coined February 13th ‘Galentine’s Day’. This is a day to celebrate your girls… the friends that feel like family and are there for you through thick and thin! Whether you’re single, married, dating, or just want a girls night, Galentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to get the girls together for a good time!

Galentine’s Day is typically the day before Valentine’s Day… but it can be observed any February day! Today, I’m sharing my guide to hosting a fabulous Galentine’s Gathering. What to serve, how to decorate, what to wear, and what to do… truly everything you need for a fabulous night celebrating the girls! Enjoy, and cheers to friendship!
