7 Creative Ideas for Celebrating Galentine's Day in 2021•
Posted on January 27 2021
Now more than ever we all need a good old fashion Leslie Knope style Galentine's Day celebration. While this year a long and boozy brunch is probably not in the cards for you and your favorite ladies, you can and should still celebrate your female friendships on February 13th.
So banish the boys (even if it is only to your spare bedroom) and plan the ultimate virtual Galentine's Day celebration!
Every Party Needs a Theme
While you may not be able to gather together this Galentine's, you can still give your virtual party a great theme. Challenge your friends to a creative Zoom background contest or see who can decorate their apartment the most creatively. Treat yourself to some pretty flowers or a balloon bouquet for easy and festive Galentine's decorations.
Choose a Signature Cocktail
While you can't be sipping in style together, you can make it feel like you are all together by picking a signature cocktail for the evening. Decide together or assign one of the gals to be the long-distance bartender for the evening. It might even be a fun surprise to keep the cocktail a secret and send your ladies the ingredients to make the evening's signature cocktail right to their front door!
Here are some pretty pink cocktails we can't wait to try:
- Raspberry Moscato
- Strawberry Vodka Slush
- Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Martinis
- Raspberry Champagne Ice Cream Float
- Strawberry Champagne Margaritas
Non Heart Shaped Food Need Not Apply
While you're already competing and besides what is a good party without eating, see which of your friends can come up with the most creative heart-shaped meal or snacks.
Pay homage to Leslie's beloved waffles by making them into heart shapes. Heart shaped pizza is a sure-fire way to wow your friends. Cookies, Rice Krispie treats, cakes, and soft homemade pretzels are creatively delicious treats for Galentine's Day that can be shaped like hearts. Or really commit and make yourself a Charcuterie board and cut your cheese into little hearts.
Galentine's Day Karaoke
Just because you can't be together doesn't mean you can't have a good laugh. What better way to laugh together than by watching your friends belt it out to some of your favorite love-themed tunes. Draw names from a hat, singer picks the next song and person, random, whatever you want! Just belt it out, lady!
We love the mix of throwbacks and cheesy love songs on this Galentine's playlist.
Secret Santa is great but Secret Cupid is way more fun. Before your virtual Galentine's you can each choose a friend to send a little gift to open during your party. We are loving candles and bracelets for the lovely ladies in our lives these days!

A Different Kind of Face Mask
While face masks have become your latest fashion accessory, let's pause to remember the days when a face mask was a luxurious paste that went on your face to help improve your skin. *Sigh*
After you've binged on your heart shaped food and sweets, treat your skin to one of these natural facials you can make using ingredients from your kitchen! After all that sugar your skin will thank you for the detox.
Wrap It Up With A Rom-Com
Before signing off, pick a classic romantic comedy to watch together. With the Sex and the City revival coming soon there is no better time to stroll down the New York City streets with Miranda and her pals than right now. Another Galentine's movie we love is The Proposal. You'll get your eye candy from Ryan Reynolds and your side-splitting laughs from Sandra Bullock and the notorious Betty White.
