For those

who don’t know, Galentine’s Day was coined by the incredible (fictional) feminist icon, Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation. Galentine’s Day falls on February 13th and is a day where, simply put, “ladies celebrate ladies.” Yeah, we can definitely get behind that. And, hey, if your bffs happen to include some amazing men, why not include them in the fun too?

At a time when women continue to push themselves to the top of every field and are working harder than ever, we could all use a little time to celebrate our successes and bask in each other’s greatness. Even when there’s a worldwide pandemic, you can still get together with your favorite people online. While there’s no wrong way to applaud the women in your life, we do have some suggestions to make this year’s Galentine’s soirée a little extra special for your squad.

Immaculate Invites

Sure, you could shoot out a mass text to your crew, but why not start the party before your guests even arrive? Send out fun and flirty invites that set the mood for celebration! Pro-tip: include inspirational quotes by strong women throughout history in each invitation that correspond to the fierce female receiving the invite!

Decadent Décor

Pick a theme, any theme! Check out our Pinterest Board for adorable ideas and how-tos that can take your party to a whole new level of fab. Don’t forget to set up a spot to take some cute pics so you can keep this iconic day in your hearts (and on Instagram) forever!

Perfect Power Anthems

Like the wise Lizzo once stated, “Woo girl, need to kick off your shoes, gotta take a deep breath, time to focus on you.” So why not take this glorious day to do just that: kick off those shoes, focus on you (and your girls) and jam out to some female power ballads! And we’ve taken all the work out of it for you; this Girl Power Playlist is the perfect way to keep the positive female vibes flowing through your whole party.

Creative Cocktail Hour (…And Some Snacks!)

We love a good theme… and any excuse to treat yo’ self. So, grab some prosecco (or seltzer water!) and a few types of berries and whip up an ‘I Love You Berry Much’ Bar and sip on something sweet and sparkling. Another easy way to get into the Love Month spirit? Pizza, but make it Valentine’s Day (AKA, simply request that your pizzeria make your pie heart-shaped)! Not only is it delicious, but it’s like your pizza is finally saying ‘I love you’ back!

Here’s to You

This just might be our favorite part of Galentine’s Day. Spend some time during your party to take turns telling each of your gals exactly how much they mean to you and have them do the same! The power of these platonic friendships is no joke, so use this charming day as an excuse to show some love to your ride-or-dies.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
We can’t wait to see how you celebrate YOU!
