Galentine’s Day is all about “ladies celebrating ladies!” This party was invented by Leslie Knope of the hit NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation as a non-traditional take on a classic holiday. The day before Valentine’s Day has become an important occasion for all types of friendships. Friendships help define and support individuals, which deserves to be recognized. Invite your closest friends and create a day filled with fun, laughter, and lots of love!

To make each one of your gal pals feel extra special, create a personalized seat marker! Print out a photo of the two of you together and write a sweet letter on the back. What makes them a powerful woman? What is your favorite quality about them? What is a favorite memory you have with them? Sharing awesome notes like this will be a sure way to kick off the party with a lot of love! They will be able to take this home as a Galentine’s Day keepsake! You can buy all the necessary stationery and supplies at your neighborhood Giant Eagle.
In your invitation, ask your friends to bring a dozen of their favorite flowers for a special activity!
