I have to admit, I had never heard of Galentine’s day until a few days ago and now I have totally fallen in love with the idea. A day to celebrate all of the lovely ladies in your life. Ladies celebrating ladies, sounds great right?! This is one that I am definitely going to mark on my calendar and you should too.
If like me a few days ago, this is the first time you’ve heard of the term, then let’s get you up to speed. Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope in the sitcom Parks and Recreation. Celebrated on the 13th February, Leslie explains on the show:
"Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, 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."
What better excuse to get all of your best girls together, throw a Galentine’s party worthy of Leslie Knope’s approval and celebrate the love…no boys allowed!
Looking for a few ways to celebrate? You’ve come to the right place:
Make this year one to remember, by celebrating even the littlest things in life with a well deserved party, surrounded by family and friends.
Parties are the way to make memories, so find the excuses this year to gather your loved ones and celebrate!
Summer is nearly here, and we're getting strong summer vibes.
Whether you're jetting off to a tropical, snowy or woodland destination, at least one summer party is needed.
Or if you're spending summer in the uk this year, wherever you may be, it doesn't matter, we have an idea to bring the South American sun to you and your garden.
All you need to do is to get the BBQ out, select yourself some colourful fiesta themed party supplies below, and you'll be well prepared for the next heat wave on it's way!
Our 5 Top Tips for Planning a Hen Party Like a Pro
You can’t wait, your best friend is getting married and she’s asked you to be her maid of honour…Yippee!! But before you get waaaay too excited about how great the big day is going to be, there is the not-so-small task of planning a killer hen party. No pressure. After all, you need to give her the perfect send off on her journey as she says goodbye Miss hello Mrs, right?
We’re sharing with you our 5 top tips for planning a Hen Party like a Pro.
1. Plan a “Hen Chat”
Seems obvious right? If you’re planning your BFF’s hen party then start off by asking her what she’s hoping for and if she would like to be involved with any of the organising. If she wants to leave all the planning down to you then ask her a few questions. Would she like a weekend away? Does she prefer the idea of raving in Ibiza or a quiet country retreat? Close family and friends or work colleagues as well? It’s best to know all these things now rather than having any awkward surprises on the day.
2. Set a Budget
The cost of a hen party can be a deal breaker for some. Make sure you set a realistic budget for your girl tribe and try to be upfront with everyone about the cost. You could even put forward a few budget options to see how much the attendees are happy to spend. Remember to include all transport, accommodation, food, nights out and activities. Once you have decided, ask all your guests to have their money paid up in advance. That way you can enjoy the day rather than worrying about chasing people up!
3. Be Flexible
Remember, your girls are all going to be different. You might have pregnant friends, 70-year-old grandmothers, young mums and ladies with a little less to spend. Bear this in mind when planning; be flexible. Why not offer a few options outside of your main plan? Rather than everyone having to go away for two nights, offer one night or just the afternoon activity and meal. That way everyone is happy, and no one is missing out.
Communication is key! Set up a Facebook Group Chat and invite all the hens to join, this way everyone is getting the same message and it’s a sure-fire way to keep everyone updated throughout the planning. When the hen party draws closer, send out an itinerary and exchange mobile numbers too.
5. Don’t Forget the Special Details
Once everything is booked, you can have fun looking for some cool accessories. Yes, this might seem like extra hassle at the time, but we promise these little details will make for a truly special day and shows your bride you’ve put lots of thought into everything. For inspiration take a look over on our Pinterest Board. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
- Planning Hen Party Games
- Finding Accessories for the Bride Tribe.
- Decorating the hotel room/house/venue
