Do you know what February 13th is? Parks and Rec fans sure do, it’s GALentine’s Day! With everyone celebrating with their significant others on the 14th, this is the perfect time to celebrate and have some fun with all of your best gals. Grab your friends, your co-workers, your sisters, even your mom and get all dolled up for a night of fun, food, and friendship! Check out these #patchperfect ideas:
For a cocktail party, feature a mimosa and dessert bar. You can let your girls create their own fancy red drinks by providing the champagne, a variety of fruit juices, some fruit, and of course the glasses. Remember to pour the champagne first and then mix in all the juice you want! We love how this bar is accented by a bright red heart garland that is super easy to make. All you need to do is cut out hearts from red cardstock paper, punch some holes, string together with twine, and hang! Add on your favorite desserts and you’ve got yourself a fantastic spread.

For a sit down dinner party, try dressing up your table! We love this DIY xo tablecloth sprinkled with colorful pom poms to create a fun centerpiece.

No party is complete without a photobooth. Create tangible memories with each of your BFFs; it’s easy to smile in front of this glittery heart.

No matter what kind of Galentine’s Party you have, dessert is always a necessity. Feature a plate full of colorful doughnuts (pick some up at any doughnut shop on your way home from work) and what kind of fancy lady doesn’t like macaroons?

Don’t let your gals leave without giving them a sweet valentine! Make them feel super special and pampered with a bottle of bright red nail polish or their very own mini bouquet of flowers.
