7 Cute Ideas You Should Copy From This Galentine's Day Party

Galentine’s Day has snuck up quickly, but trust me when I say there’s still time to throw a dreamy Pinterest-esque party. Yes, the holiday technically falls on February 13, but as far as I’m concerned, we can celebrate it whenever we want—Galentine's szn forever. I mean, is there ever a bad time for boozy brunch with your best friends? Nope. I hosted my annual party on February 8, and here are seven ideas you should definitely steal from me.

Candy charcuterie board 

As much as I love a good cheese board, a dessert charcuterie board might be even better. And, since any grocery store you step foot in will have an abudance of heart-shaped everything, you can make this in ten minutes, easy.

A balloon heart wall

All you need is a vision and some tape to bring together a fun balloon moment. I went for garland over my chairs (with help from a local vendor in my town), and an easier option, a balloon heart wall.

​Pink cotton candy cocktails 

I ordered these pink coupe glasses off of Amazon (four for $4 with Prime next-day delivery), and filled them with a pouf of cotton candy. When my friends arrived, I topped the glasses off with La Mara proseccco and served—it looked super fancy, but is actually the easiest, with only two ingredients.

Boozy juice packs

Adult juice packs, anyone? I served Galentine’s Juice—equal parts pink lemonade and vodka, plus a splash of 7UP—in boozy pouches with a “babe” crazy straw, both of which I got on Etsy from The Dirty Bar Cart

Tie-dye wine totes

To send my friends off with a little something, I ordered these tie dye wine totes from local shop BFFS & BABES (which you can shop here) and filled them with mini bottles of La Marca Prosecco. If you're throwing a last-minute party, you can always DIY a similar concept.

A bath bomb gumball machine

Yes, you read that right. I ordered a gumball machine off of Amazon, and spray painted it pink. Then, I found someone on Etsy who would make me bath bombs the size of a gumball to fill it up. If I'm remembered for one thing, please let it be this.

A friendship bracelet chaircuterie board 

Since the 90s are certainly back and nostalgia is real, I set up a chaircuterie board for us to make friendship bracelets.
