A Galentine’s Day Party Made for the Girlies

I recently went on a weekend cabin trip in Hochatown with my girlies. You know, the good ol’ hole up in the cabin, hot tub all night long, lots of jams, and board games type beat. Not that long ago, I moved back to the United States. So, for some of my friends, this cabin weekend was the first time I had seen them since moving back.

I love my girlies. Some people might refer to what we call “the girlies” as their girl gang, sisters, or some other affectionate term. Well, whatever you call your version of the girlies lets celebrate Galentine’s properly with a party simply made for the girlies.

What does it mean to be made for the girlies? 

I feel like it is something sweet, magical, meaningful, and a party truly written by a woman.

For me and my girlies, this would entail a bottle of wine, a meal we all cooked together, some sort of dessert, and for Valentine’s Day, some sappy romance movie.

So, that being said, here is my idea of a Galentine’s Day party made for the girlies.

Keeping the same trail of thought in line, let’s do this dinner party style. We all love to dress on theme, so that is exactly what I am suggesting you do too. Think hearts, pinks, reds, and all that cheesy, cliché, Valentine’s Day goodness. Something like the photo below is a casual but on-theme option for sure.

Now, for the dinner party, think extravaganza on the table setting. Messy but sophisticated, dripping in hearts, flower petals, and candles. Yes. Please.

For a menu, I feel that pasta dishes are always a crowd-pleaser and easier to make for multiple people. Why make your life difficult by doing a complicated meat dish when you can do a solid Cacio e Pepe or Vodka sauce pasta? Yeah, that’s what we thought!

Okay, and lastly, for the movie. I am not going to tell you which movie to watch, that is totally up to you.

However, I am going to suggest doing a movie snack board. Think charcuterie but with chocolate-covered strawberries, pretzels, popcorn, and all that good stuff.

Additionally, if you have a projector, bust that out to make it feel super special. There is something about using a projector that really sets the tone that a TV screen just cannot do.

That is my lowkey, for the girlies Galentine’s Day party. For all your cutlery, dinnerware, and decoration needs, Party Place has what you need. Check out their online offerings here.

Cheers to that.
