“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we just come and kick it breakfast style. Ladies, celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith fair. Minus the angst, plus frittatas. It’s wonderful and it should be a national holiday”.
-Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation
Back in 2016, we decided to take a page out of Leslie Knope’s handbook and start a tradition with our best college girlfriends. The first ever Galentine’s day was The Bachelor themed complete with its own dramatic rose ceremony. Spoiler alert: we all made the cut. We went with solo cups and paper straws for a sophisticated touch. For decorations we scoped out our local Target and made away with:
- Heart straws
- Chocolate roses
- Conversation heart plates
- V-day themed koozies
- Boo the Dog valentines
The finishing touches to our spread were bottles of André, reminiscent of our college days. I guess the Fatbois got a little ahead themselves with the “Single For a Limited Time Only” koozies as it is now February 2017 and you guessed it folks, still single (the only ones in the group I may add).Galentine’s Day runs on Dunkin’ because what is cuter than a heart-shaped donut?!For Galentine’s Day 2017, the theme was red, white, and gold glitter, brought to you by Target. Contrary to popular belief this is not an ad, we just have an unhealthy obsession with the place. We’ve spent so much money there we should probably have a stake in the company by now (Hehe…just let us love you, Target).Champagne-flavored gummy bearsPush-Up Pop Mimosas, a must try! Any type of sparkling wine will do.
What better way to celebrate your lady squad than getting push-up pop mimosa tipsy in pajamas? Not captured before they were devoured: Nutella churro rolls, pizza pies, cheesy garlic bread, buffalo chicken dip, spinach artichoke dip. We’ll try again next year! Happy Galentine’s Day to you and yours! Who run the world? GIRLS.
