If you’re not feeling the whole Valentine’s day thing this year because maybe 1. you’re single (af) or 2. you just don’t play into this whole holiday, I have something to cheer you up! Gather all the single ladies from your squad and host the best Galentine’s day ever on the 13th of February! NO BOYS ALLOWED! Just you and your closest girls bonding and creating memories.. maybe even a new tradition? Here are some tips on how to throw the perfect Galentine’s day party!

GAL-DAY ESSENTIAL: DECORATIONS

Like any other party, this Galentine gathering is going to need lots of decorations! Just remember these three B’s: backdrop, balloons and banners – and you’ll be good to go. The backdrop is probably where most pictures will be taken, so find a spare (blank) wall and get crazy creative! It doesn’t even have to cost you much. This DIY Chevron Fringe Backdrop project from I Spy DIY is perfect: it’s easy, it’s cheap and you can customize the colors.

You”ll also needs lots and lots of balloons. Heart-shaped balloons, polka dot balloons, letter balloons.. you name it! The more, the better.

GAL DAY ESSENTIAL: ENTERTAINMENT

Take this giant Tic-Tac-Toe for instance, how cool! And all you really need for this are letter balloons and some washi-tape. And what about these DIY tattoos? Ink Sisters Unite! Another idea is to bring a Polaroid camera and have the most epic and random photo sesh ever. Don’t forget the photobooth props! To make this Galentine’s day even more special, exchange small gift boxes/beauty items with each other for a sentimental touch. Want more of a mellow party? Create a list with all your favorite chick flicks for a fun movie marathon. Or have a sing-a-long karaoke session on Youtube.
