How to throw the perfect Galentine’s Day party

Share the love with your friends this February 13th by hosting a Galentine's Day party.
 

First made popular by Amy Pohler’s hilarious character Leslie Knope on Parks and Rec, Galentine’s Day is the time you gather with your favourite girlfriends and celebrate your friendship. So make a guest list and invite your besties over for a girls-only night in!

 

1. The Invites

Online invitations, like the customizable one above from evite,  make it simple to keep track of RSVPs and share party details. If paper invites are more your style, pop a stamp on one of these fun Galentine's cards.

 

2. The Decor

As when decorating for any party, we recommend shopping your home for party pieces. If you buy any decorations, dinnerware, or drinkware, invest in items you can re-use over and over. Unify the decor with a colour scheme. Gold paired with two other colours—in this case pink and shades of blue—always looks beautiful.

1. Party cake topper, $20, evescrafts.etsy.com.
2. Abstract brushstroke salad plate, $12. westelm.com.
3. Splash blush pink & gold cocktail napkins, $11, bonjourfete.com.
4. Nouveau gold double old-fashioned glass, $11, cb2.com.
5. Charm school tray besties, $27, rosannainc.com.

 

3. The Sips

Greet your BFFs at the door with a signature drink. This cherry lime cooler is one of our favourites! It has just the right balance of sweet and tart.

 

4. The Eats

The best part of any party (aside from the company)? The food! Treat your friends to a table packed with some of our tested till perfect party nibbles:

Apple and Canadian blue cheese tartlets with icewine glaze (pictured above)
Bubbly bacon and butternut dip
Smoked cheddar pancakes with pickled beets
Lazy cheeseburger sliders

 

5. The Tunes

Every party needs a playlist. Create one that represents you and your friends, whether it's old-school rap from those awkward dances from back in the day or songs from and about strong women. You can also use an app like Apple Music or Spotify to search existing playlists.
