Want an excuse to get all your favorite girls together in the month of February? We recommend hosting a Galentine’s Party because it’s the perfect occasion to host a party and show them how much you care about them. Even though Galentine’s Day is officially the 13th of February, don’t let that stop you from having a party for your gal pals any time during the month of February. Throwing a party like this is the perfect way for everyone to clear their schedules and take some much-needed friend time. We’ve rounded up 7 Galentine’s day party ideas and 3 outfit ideas for the occasion to help you jump start your planning!
Nothing says girls’ night more than face masks and mani-pedis. It’s the perfect excuse to relax and unwind from the bustle of every-day life and to have some good ol’ fashion girl talk. You just have to put out a cute treat board with all your favorite snacks and treats (think cheese, crackers, and some strawberries) and you’re set for a perfect night. If you need some pampering supplies like face masks, some of our favorites can be found here.
Popping & Painting
Pop the bottles, drink the pop, pour the wine - whatever you’re into, you can really embrace the theme. Nothing mixes better than sipping your favorite drink while getting creative with your friends. You can book a class a local art center, or gather the supplies and host your own - maybe even try to paint along with a Bob Ross tutorial?
Favorite Things Party
If you’ve ever been to one of these, you know how fun they are. Ask everyone to bring two identical gifts of their favorite thing. It could be a beauty product, a kitchen product, or even a snack! Whatever little thing that they might have discovered that they just LOVE and want to share with others. When people arrive to the party, draw names and exchange gifts! Have everyone share what they love about the item they brought. It’s a fun way to get to know your friends a little better and try something new. Put together a charcuterie board with all your favorites for a snack!
Brunch is always a good idea and just seems like the perfect activity to do with girlfriends. You can host it in your home or go to a restaurant that specalizes in brunch (if you’re local to Utah, we highly recommend Sweet Lake Biscuts and Limeade!) Either way, you only need two things for this party: good company and good food. To take it to the next level you could put together goodie bags for each of your friends with some of your favorite scrunchies or earrings from MSC!
Bring a little competition to your party by having a game night with your favorite junk foods. A few of our favorites are ‘Cover Your Assets’, ‘Things’, or ‘Jackbox’ if you have a laptop or appletv. You could also research fun party games for larger groups of people if you end up having more than a handful of friends to invite over!
Rom-Com Movie Night
Pop some popcorn, get some drinks, and get a list of your favorite movies to binge. Nothing like watching sappy love stories to celebrate this lovey-dovey holiday. Some of our favorite rom-coms we recommend adding to the possible list:
- 13 Going On 30
- Mamma Mia
- Pitch Perfect
- Easy A
- 10 Things I Hate About You
- Crazy, Stupid Love
- How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
Throw it back to the 90’s and have a classic slumber party. Watch romantic movies, paint each other’s nails, do some online shopping while eating junk food, and just spend the time catching up (and maybe trading a few ghost stories as you stay up late!) This idea is the best for a small, intimate group of friends that you want to spend some quality time with!
Galentine’s, the perfect excuse for a new outfit. And we have an entire Valentine’s Day Section for you to shop here.
The Casual Party
We have the cutest sweatshirt for you - our Rule My Heart Graphic Sweatshirt + a pair of cute sweats. It’s comfortable, cozy, yet still so cute and trendy. This outfit would be perfect for a slumber party, rom-com movie night, or a pampering party.
Dressed Up But Not Dressy
This one can go either way: you could wear a cute overall dress or a sweater and jeans. Either way, with the right accessories, you’ll be ready to meet up with the girls looking cute and trendy.
All Dolled Up
Dresses are our love language here at My Sister’s Closet, and we have the perfect ones for you to pick from. Nothing says dressed up like a twirlable dress and heels.
