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! 

Happy Galentines Day

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.”

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.

The Centerpiece

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!

 

 

The Menu

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.

Cocktails

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.

  1. Kim, can I come to your party?! Oh my, I love every single thing about this playful, yet sincere, message of thanks to all the women who hold us up through everyday ups and downs. The menu (those mimosa bar choices – one of each, please!), including those cute kabobs with hearts; that table runner (so very creatively simple!); the place cards (a hoot!, great conversation starters); and the table settings themselves – this would have the girls talking for days, weeks afterward about what a great time spent. Bravo.

    Kim, I laughed out loud at your pick up lines, too clever and perfect for Galentine’s Day! Your sharpie heart and arrow runner is super fun, affordable and festive too. Love your pretty tulips. Brunch looks delicious too especially with your Mimosa Bar. It’s always a treat to blog hop with you. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  3. Ann Krucek says:

  4. Liz says:

    Kim, what a fun time exclusively for the ladies. So much love among friends. And such a lovely breakfast. It is so welcoming. I love all the wonderful and cozy touches like the tulips, warm-hearted note cards, scalloped napkins and, of course, the gummy hearts, of which I am such a fan. Your table runner is perfect for your table. What a beautiful time for just the ladies. Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day.

  9. Oh my goodness those pick-up lines are hilarious! I’ve never hosted a Galentine’s event but I sure do want to. The canvas runner looks expensive and tulips this time of year are a real treat. If you hadn’t mentioned the flatware wasn’t real I wouldn’t have guessed it. It would be hard for me to part with it as well.

  10. Linda says:

    Kim, what a fun Galentine’s day party. Loving your cheesy pick up lines. The fruit kabobs are fun! Tulips are so cheerful and add so much beauty to the table. What a lovely breakfast planned for your gal pals.

  11. Debbee M says:

    Kim, I had so much fun viewing your delightful post, table and menu. Oh. My. Goodness, what a riot those pick up lines are and how clever to use them as place cards! It’s been a looooong time since anyone tried a pickup line on me! Of late it’s more likely some creepy guy on Facebook or Instagram wanting to friend me… yuck! What a wonderful time you and your besties will have.

  12. Jenna says:

    Oh Kim, how much fun! Your place cards with the cheesy pick up lines are hilarious! Love the modern feeling you have created, and the plates look fantastic! I also love how you grouped vases of tulips for the centerpiece…and your food looks and sounds amazing! I want to come to your party!! Fabulous! {loved hearing your story about how you and your husband met, so cute!}

  13. Shannon Blackford says:

  14. Rebecca says:

    Kim, thanks for providing the background of Galentine’s Day (I’ve never watched Parks and Rec). What a great idea! I can have the girls over for breakfast after the kids go to school. I just love everything about your table! The strata and sticky buns are making me hungry. I’m so impressed that you made the table runner…you must have very steady hands!. It is so cute and just perfect for a casual girl’s breakfast. The cheesy pick up lines made me laugh, too. So clever! It’s a pleasure hopping with you. Happy Valentine’s (and Galentine’s) Day!

  15. Lynne says:

    Oh my goodness, Kim! I want to come! It looks like such a fun party. I love all of the details…from the cheesy pick up line place cards to the amazing menu. You have thought of everything! I hope you enjoy a very Happy Galentine’s Day!

  16. Any table with fresh pink tulips and fresh fruit is perfection to me! So many cute ideas here Kim! I love the black and white touches, especially the scalloped napkins.

    So happy to hop with you! I hope you have a Happy Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day!
