The Ultimate Galentine’s Party Guide

Valentine’s Day is almost here and whether you’re single, dating or in a relationship - you want to make time for all the best girls in your life!! We love celebrating Galentine’s day! It’s the perfect excuse to put on a comfy outfit, pop a bottle of bubbly and spend quality time with your girl friends! Here’s a guide to help you plan the best night with your best babes! 

rom com

Rom Com + Wine 

Who doesn’t love Noah and Allie or Harry and Sally?! Netflix and Hulu have a variety of rom-coms during this time of year available to stream. Browse through the romantic movies to pick your fave! Pop popcorn and have your fave wine on hand for the ultimate movie watching experience. You won’t be disappointed! Romance not your thing? Keep it light by popping in a movie with leading ladies you love or a female-centered plotline. Bridesmaids? Pitch Perfect? Yes, please.


On the Menu 

Mimosas, wine and pizza?! Yes, please! Make it a fun night with breakfast food and mimosas. Another option we love for ladies on a budget or short on time, keep it classic and order a pizza! This is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! Finish the night by #treatingyourself with something sweet - a little chocolate or ice cream is the ultimate indulgence. The perfect combo for a night in! 

spa night

Activity: Spa Night 

Sit back and relax with your gal pals! Gather your fave nail polish colors and have a spa night. Our favorite color is ‘Ballet Slippers’ by Essie. It’s the perfect blush tone and we hear it’s the Queen of England’s favorite color too. If it’s good enough for her, then it’s good enough for us!  Add in face masks for an even more relaxing time. They’re affordable and the perfect thing to pop-on during your rom-com! 

Another tip is to take the nail polish and make them into a goody-bag for your guests so they can leave with a fun gift in hand! We recommend adding mini champagne bottles, lip gloss, hair ties and chocolate! Your friends will appreciate the extra touch and it's a fun treat to take home! 

dress code

Dress Code: Comfy 

A night of hanging with your best girls calls for being comfy and cozy! Toss on your favorite leggings + fun valentine’s tee or sweatshirt for a look that is effortless and cozy! A few of our favorite Valentine’s looks are linked here (and P.S. select pieces are on sale NOW)!  

insta worthy

Document It All: Insta Worthy Idea

What’s a party if you can’t document it?! Make a cute photo background for your friends to take pictures in front of as the night goes on. Provide a Polaroid camera as an option for people to take their photos home with them! Pro tip: create an affordable backdrop with red fabric (a red sheet will also work!) and hang it from curtain rods. If possible, place your backdrop in a place where you can have access to good lighting. The light should be facing you, not behind you! Your squad’s selfie game has never been so strong! 

We hope you enjoy your Galentine’s this year and that it’s filled with memories and the best friends around! Show us your Galentine’s party by tagging us @shopimpressions and using the hashtag #shopimpressions!
