A Galentine's Tradition

Gallentine Glasses

Celebrating the bond of friendship with your besties on Galentine’s Day is good for the heart and soul! No matter your relationship status, the bond you share with your friends is one to be honored. If you haven’t started a yearly tradition of a Galentine’s Day party with your girlfriends, I highly recommend it! Your gathering can be as laid back or as fancy as you like. You can go small and intimate with a few close friends or an all-out big party. Here are just a few ideas for hosting your Galentine’s day celebration....

Kiss Balloon

Set the scene with festive and fun decorations in classic pink and red. Don’t forget to add a little sparkle with metallic balloons or confetti!! Planning a stunning backdrop for a photoshoot with your besties is another absolute must. You’ll want to capture all the great memories from the day living in the moment and enjoying each other’s company. Whether it’s a charming floral wall, shimmering balloons, or a creative DIY photo booth with props, the options are endless!

Vodka Rose Punch table setting

Your table setting is another important element in putting together a visually striking party. Don’t forget to add a fresh bouquet of flowers to your tabletop décor vibe. With so many bouquets made up for the Valentine holiday you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your party. Add some candles for some ambiance and a cozy vibe. A sweet or floral scent would be perfect for this day. Most importantly, set the table with your favorite heart themed Lolita glasses! My Vodka Rose Punch cocktail glass is a perfect glass for each place setting with its feminine design and sparkling accents.

Party Favors

Plan cute, unforgettable party favors for your guests with a Lolita glass paired with a mini bottle of wine and chocolate. My Hearts-A-Swirl Wine glass would be a fun, flirty and festive addition! Bring it all together in an adorable gift box in your party theme colors. SUCH a cute way to commemorate the day!

Party Snacks

Of course, every party should include food and drink, so be sure to put some thought and love into what you serve! For any size of party, you can’t go wrong with a charcuterie board. You could go the traditional route of cheeses, meats, crackers and fruits (perfect to pair with wine) or the super indulgent route filling it with chocolate covered strawberries, heart shaped cookies or brownies and other delectable sweets.

I like to use a heart shaped serving tray for this special day, or another fun idea is to repurpose a heart shaped candy box. Savory or sweet, whichever you choose, will undoubtedly pair well with a refreshing cocktail.

Refreshing Cocktail Pitcher

What beverage is perfect for this day? Something sweet, fizzy and perfectly hued pink- the Blackberry Rose Cocktail. It’s a classic spin on a light and refreshing sangria sure to wow your guests. This recipe will make a pitcher full for a small group.

Blackberry Rose Cocktail

  • 6 oz Vodka
  • 30 oz (sweet) rosé wine
  • 6 oz orange juice
  • 3 oz simple syrup
  • Handful of blackberries
  • Ice (as desired)
  • Set up each of your glasses with two to three blackberries.
  • Next, add simple syrup, rose, vodka and orange juice into a pitcher. Be sure to thoroughly mix the ingredients so they're blended well.
  • Add ice to the glasses and pour the mixture into each glass.

Gather your best besties, plan a menu, decorations and activities, and let the Galentine’s celebrations begin! May your Galentine’s day be filled with love, laughter and unforgettable moments. Cheers!
