The TV show Parks and Recreation first introduced us to Galentine’s Day, and we LOVE the idea. Leslie, the character that introduces the Galentine’s to the world explains “Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
It’s all about celebrating the wonderful women in your life on the 13th February aka Valentine’s Day Eve. As we grow up it gets harder to organise more than one person to be in a certain place at a certain time, so planning a shindig for the 13th is something we can definitely get on board with. Read on for our favourite ways of celebrating your gal pals with the perfect night in.
There’s nothing like getting competitive to test a friendship! We love the oh so magical unicorn ring toss or an 80’s or 90’s quiz to test your general knowledge skills. Move onto gin or prosecco pong later on in the day.
Cocktails are a must, from a simple Mimosa if you’re brunching it up, to our apple and elderflower gin fizz recipe. Get everyone involved and have your own masterclass!
Ok you don’t have to go full matching but loungewear or pyjamas mean you can really get into full relaxation mode.
