That’s right, GALentines Day. I’m a big fan of the show Parks and Rec. with Amy Poehler and her character Leslie is big on celebrating Galentines Day the day before Valentines Day. What is it? Basically you round up your gal pals, leave your boyfriends, husbands, whatever at home and spend Valentines Eve with your ladies. No boys allowed.
Grab your girls and plan a night of fun things to do together. You can chose to do a girls night out or a girls night in the important thing is that you are all together and having fun and catching up without the boys around. It’s like turning back time to when we were younger and had sleepovers and stayed up all night talking and playing games.
For A Gals Night In:
If you are going to do a girls night in make it super special and go all out! Go to the dollar store and get some Valentines Day themed sparkly confetti and a pink table cloth to decorate the dinner table. Get some fancy looking drink stirrers and anything glittery you can’t go wrong. Decorate the table and put cupcakes or a cake as the centerpiece with a sign saying “Happy Galentines Day” for you and your friends to enjoy.
Also, plan some fun things to do for the night after dinner is over like watch your favorite “girl power” movies, play some games, make some drinks, set up a makeshift photo-booth and take funny pictures to capture the events of the night. I made a list of me and my friends favorite movies for girls nights and games we break out when we feel like taking it back to our teen years and got some suggestions for drink ideas for girls nights that I will list for inspiration for readers. Also, have a dance party! No girls night in or out is complete without a dance party.
Clueless, Mean Girls, Heathers, Bridesmaids, Sex In The City, The Ugly Truth, Pretty In Pink.
Girl Talk, Truth or Dare, Kiss-Marry-YouKnowWhat, Kings Cup.
Sparkling Blood Orange Martini: 1.5 ounce blood orange juice, 2 ounce vodka, 1 ounce lime juice, 4 ounce sparkling water, lime wedge for garnish.
Cupids Cupcake Cocktail: vodka, chocolate sauce, buttermilk, red food coloring, creme de cacao, vanilla, shake in an ice shaker, dip the rim of the glass in creme cheese frosting and enjoy.
For A Gals Night Out:
If you and the ladies decide to spend your Galentines Day out on the town then again, do it big! Plan a day or afternoon of pampering. Go get mani-pedis and sip champagne and catch up on each others lives and fill every one in on the latest news – whatever, the day is about friends and fun and girl time!
After your pampering is through you can go looking for some sales and find some cute outfits to wear out to dinner and drinks. Maybe you wanna hit up a karaoke club. I can tell you from personal experience, you can’t go wrong with going to a karaoke bar. Even when you are not participating, or sober as a bird, just watching others partake is pure enjoyment. Again, make sure the night includes a dance party!
