You heard it here first, ladies – Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples anymore!
In fact, for years now, we’ve looked forward to February not just for romantic tablescapes and proposals, but the hilarious hijinks that Galentine’s Day groups get up to.
From paint nights and wine tastings, to at-home spas and brunches, there’s no end to the ways you can turn this celebration of friendship into something you look forward to every year.
Are you about to plan a Galentine’s Day of your own? How do you ensure a fun and unforgettable event? If things go awry, it may be hard to earn back your hosting privileges (you burn one turkey and all of a sudden Thanksgiving will never be at your house again!).
Well, it’s safe to say that the event planning team at Lucy Blossoms knows a thing or two about organizing some truly amazing parties.
Here are our favorite ways to bring your Galentine’s Day to the next level!
How to Host the Ultimate Galentine’s Day
We love a theme
So, you’re throwing a Galentine’s Day bash – why not make it extra? Pick a theme that gets everyone excited. One advantage to hosting a party for your friends and family is that you know exactly what everybody likes! That makes it easy to choose a theme that’s sure to be a hit.
Whether it’s spa day glam, a blast from the past, or just a chill cocktail vibe, having a theme makes everything way more fun. At Lucy Blossoms, we’re all about bringing your party dreams to life. Let the theme guide your décor, activities, and even what you wear – because why not?
Pick the Perfect Playlist
No party is complete without a killer playlist! If there’s one thing we’ve learned throughout our years as event professionals, it’s that music can make or break a party. It has the power to transform your Galentine’s Day into anything from an elegant tea party to a silly karaoke night. Create a playlist that reflects the spirit of your theme and the energy you want to bring to the event.
Whether it’s soft background music for a spa day or lively beats for a cocktail party, tailor the playlist to enhance the atmosphere and keep the energy high throughout the celebration.
Dress to Impress (and don’t forget to be on-theme!)
Whether it’s old bridesmaid dresses, retro vibes, or just jeans and a cute top, a dress code adds that extra oomph. Encourage your friends to dive into the theme headfirst – and don’t forget to capture those Insta-worthy moments. Our motto? Always do that “something extra.”
A dress code also has the added benefit of building anticipation for your Galentine’s Day!
Game, Set, Match…Prizes!
What’s a party without some friendly competition? Inject some fun into your Galentine’s Day with carefully planned games and the chance to win fabulous prizes. From classic board games to themed trivia and contests, interactive activities keep the energy high and create lasting memories. Giving your guests something to do is a great way to keep the good times rolling.
Bite-Sized Bliss: Food is the Real MVP of Any Celebration!
Food is the glue that holds any party together. Whether it’s brunch, finger foods, or a full-on dinner, make it on-theme and oh-so-delicious. Consider the preferences and dietary restrictions of your group as you plan a culinary journey that brings your event to life.
Some of our favorite finger foods include bacon-wrapped dates, different flavored popcorns, and blackberry cheesecake bars!
Dazzle them with Decor
Transform your home into the ultimate Galentine’s Day paradise. Think balloons, flowers, and quirky décor that begs your guests to document the moment as soon as they walk in.
Not to brag, but here at Lucy Blossoms we specialize in taking events to the next level. With custom backdrops, stunning balloon arrangements, neon signs, and amazing seated displays, we help you design events they’ll be talking about for years to come. Let’s turn your space into a backdrop for unforgettable moments.
Select a Signature Drink
Let’s talk about drinks, shall we? A mini bar with signature cocktails that match your theme is always a big hit. Whether it’s a fruity concoction, classic mojito, or even mocktails – keep those glasses clinking and the conversations flowing. And let’s be honest, nothing is more photo-worthy than a colorful cocktail and clinking glasses with your friends. Cheers to good times and even better sips!
A Picture-perfect Photo Booth
Every epic event needs a killer photo booth. Not only are there professional booths for rent, but you can set up a DIY corner with props that match your theme, and let the fun begin. Photo booths are great for capturing those silly moments. Your guests will be striking poses, making memories, and sharing the laughs long after the party ends.
Galentine’s Day Gifts: Spread the Love!
Who doesn’t love a surprise? Small, personalized gift bags are a great way to end your time hosting with a bang. They show your friends and family just how much you care, and give them a physical reminder of fun memories with the group. And these bags don’t have to break the bank! Cute fuzzy socks, some chocolates, and flower petal bath bombs go a long way towards impressing your guests. Here, it truly is the thought that counts.
Take a stroll down memory lane
Compile a slideshow of memorable moments with your friends. If you’re anything like us, odds are you have an entire camera roll of images. From embarrassing throwback photos to heartwarming memories, let the laughter and good feelings flow. It’s a sentimental touch that adds warmth to your Galentine’s Day celebration.
