2023 Galentine's Day​

February might be known for Valentines Day, but a new trend has been popping up in the last couple of years, Galentines Day! 

In the words of Leslie Knope “Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies” Since that episode aired in 2010 it started the cultural phenomenon that is Galentines Day! Here are some quick tips on decor and snacks for you to throw the perfect Galentines Party for you and your girlies! 

Galentine's Decor 

When it comes to decor, think pinks and reds! You could also pop some purple into the mix! Custom cups or cocktail napkins always make a great touch. If you know your invite list in advance, custom crazy straws with each gals name is a great idea! Use some balloons and/or garland as an easy way to spruce up your event space. 


Galentine's Bites

You’re going to want to have some sweet and savory bites for your ladies. Sometimes the best way to go is simple and sweet. Hit up target and get some of your favorite valentines day candies! Presenting them in cute little heart bowls is a great way to add extra flair! Some of our go to apps for a Galentines party are Baked Brie Bites, Heart Shaped Caprese, Baby Crab Cakes with Remoulade, and Mini Cheesecakes. If you’re limited on time, reach out to our friend Cheese & Honey for one of the best charcuterie boards in San Antonio!

Galentine's Sips

And now for the fun part, cocktails! One great idea is to make a large batch drink. This is great so that your guest can mix whatever liquor they favor, or for those who would rather enjoy a mocktail. This Raspberry Sherbert Punch is a simple crowd pleaser. Have some fun garnishes so your drink can have some glam! Think sugar rims, candy sticks, or this edible glitter. If you have a cart, set up a cute drink station with your custom cups, drink stirrers, and garnishes.
