Galentines party activities
A gift swap is such a cute idea for a galentines party! You can either pre-assign who is buying gifts for who, or have everyone bring a generic gift to the party.
Then, at the party, you can all open all your gifts together and see what everyone received.
Baking is another super fun idea for an activity at your party.
Not only do you have fun making something, you get to eat all your treats at the end!
Mani-pedis are a classic galentines party idea that everyone will love! You can either go out to the salon to get your nails and toes done or do it at your house!
If you are doing the latter, it can be super fun to have everyone doing each other’s nails.
Karaoke would be an amazing activity for a galentines party at night. Whether you have a karaoke mike or not, you can have fun singing along to all your favorite songs.
Painting and other crafts are perfect to fill some time during your galentines party. You can have everyone painting the same thing or give all your guests supplies and see what they create!
Looking at everyone’s creations at the end would be so much fun!
self care night
Similar to the mani-pedi night, you can have a self care night with all your closest girlfriends. Whether you do face masks, meditation, or more, a self care night is something that everyone needs.
Movies are also perfect for galentines parties! Pick your favorite rom-coms and some fun snacks and you have yourself the perfect night.
Try having a fun photoshoot with all your friends. This is such a cute activity that will also let you capture all your favorite memories from the party.
And what would a photoshoot be without a good makeover. Another fun party idea is to have everyone do each other’s hair and makeup for pictures.
If everyone is available, you can also turn your galentines day party into a slumber party and invite everyone to sleep over. This is so much fun if you want to extend your party a bit.
Galentines party food
Fondue stations at your galentines day party are such a cute and delicious idea! You can do cheese fondue as a snack or chocolate fondue for dessert. Either way, it will be delicious! Here are some ideas for snacks to pair with your fondue:
- graham crackers
- rice krispie treats
Another cute twist on some basic snacks is by making a snack board. You can have so much fun with this and include a bunch of different types of foods on your board. Here are some of my favorite ideas!
- charcuterie board – meats, cheeses, crackers
- dessert board – mini cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels, candies, cookies, donut holes
- butter board – butter spread, bread, crackers
You can also get your guests involved and have a board night where each person brings a different themed board to the party. This way, everyone at the party can get super creative and bring their favorite foods and snacks.
make a signature drink
Having a signature drink at your galentines party is such a cute idea to make the party more festive!
Whether you have your galentines party in the morning or not, you can make it brunch themed and make/buy all breakfast foods. Here are some menu ideas:
- waffles or pancakes (bonus points if they are heart shaped)
- breakfast potatoes
Galentines party ideas
A fun way to spice up your party is to have a dress code for all your guests. You can make it super casual and tell everyone to wear their favorite pajamas or get fancy and wear dresses. Another cute idea is to have everyone wear Valentine’s day colors.
Flowers are a fun and easy way to decorate for your galentines day party. You can either buy pre-arranged flowers or do it yourself!
Try matching your flowers to whatever other decorations you are using.
balloons and other decor
Have fun decorating the space for your party. You can get cute Valentine’s day balloons, streamers, banners, and more.
You can also buy all of it in a set from amazon, so it makes decorating as easy as possible.
One of my favorite galentines party ideas for girls night is to have a polaroid camera or disposable camera at the party. These will capture some super cute and candid moments from the night!
If you are using disposable cameras, you can even give each person at the party a camera and have everyone capture all their favorite moments. Then, once you get the photos, you can relive your party while looking at them all.
If you want to get extra fancy, make some cute goodie bags to give to each of your guests at the end of the party. These can include anything from candy to snacks to self care items.
Instead of sending a text, try sending out cute invitations for your galentines day party. You can send an evite or send a real card in the mail.
This is such a fun way to get creative for your party. If you are planning the party around a theme, make sure your invitations match too!
Make sure you have the perfect music planned out for your party! You can either make a playlist with all your favorite songs or find a pre-made galentines day party playlist online.
Either will help you have the absolute best party possible!
