These Happy Galentine’s Day table decor ideas will help you celebrate all your best-est girlfriends in style this February 13th. Ladies celebrating Ladies!
My husband and I have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day. Our shared thoughts on the day were the first thing we bonded on and sparked our first conversation! Throwing a Happy Galentine’s Day party, though, sounds SO fun to me. Ladies celebrating Ladies and all that! I’ve wanted to host one forever. This February, I’m doing it!
Not sure what Galentine’s Day is?
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year,” says Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler on “Parks and Recreation”). “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.”
Sounds fun, doesn’t it!

To add even more fun, I’ve added downloadable Cheesy Pickup Line Place Cards, perfect for your Happy Galentine’s Day Celebration to my Goodies (Resource) area. The file contains eight different cards, featuring ridiculous pickup lines we’ve all heard at least once! Not on my list? You can get them HERE.
Happy Galentine’s Day Table and Party Ideas
The Table Runner
The table runner is a quick, easy DIY – I used a length of inexpensive canvas, hemmed with stitch-witchery, and added heart-arrows with a sharpie. Less than hour yielded an adorable holiday accent! Click over here for directions on how to make your own.
Tulips are my FAVORITE at this time of year, with their bold colors and casual yet formal stature, they are my spirit animal of flowers. My REAL spirit animal is a goat.. bahh? But, I digress.
The Table Setting
I have fancy china, but hardly ever use it. Instead, I love to pair colorful dessert and salad plates with plain, white, every-day dinnerware. For this setting, however, I reversed it and went with these DIY colorful dinner plates and white salad plates, topped with a gold-rimmed black heart and a glitter-filled shot glass of gummy hearts.
Black and cream scalloped napkins add a teeny bit of elegance.
Black glass goblets add a little drama. My favorite flatware makes another appearance. It’s still hard for me to believe it’s disposable!
I went simple on the menu. My main dish – grain-free Eggs Benedict Strata from Celebrations with hollandaise sauce by Danielle Walker. There is literally nothing in this book that isn’t amazing!
To save time, I went with store-bought pecan sticky buns, Yoplait Oui vanilla yogurt served with a side of granola and fruit kabobs topped with watermelon hearts.
No Valentine’s or Happy Galentine’s Day would be complete without sweets. Strawberry macaroons, with crisp and chewy perfection, are perched atop this DIY Hearth Plate.
A brunch essential, my mimosa bar started with my favorite prosecco. I included orange, grapefruit, or and cherry juice to mix things up! I’ll also have Sparkling water for those looking for the taste of and bubbly of mimosas but not the alcohol.
Embellished with adorable, cheeky,
cheesy pickup lines you and your gal-pals will be giggling and rolling your eyes over these DIY Happy Galentine’s Day place cards. They are available for free download to my mailing list subscribers. Click here to get your copy!
I’m so excited to get the Happy Galentine’s Day party started. In the words of Leslie Knope: “Ovaries before brovaries. Uteruses before duderuses.” Forever, Amen. Now, bring on February 13th!
Who’s your bestie and how will you be celebrating Galentine’s Day?
