“What is Galentine’s Day!? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and 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.” -Leslie Knope, Parks and Rec S02 E16.
Of course I celebrate Galentine’s Day, most specifically because I love my gal pals but also because I am a huge fan of Parks and Rec and Leslie Knope. So why celebrate Galentine’s Day? Well, if you want to have a special day for just you and your girl friends celebrating friendship– this is it. It’s the perfect time to kick back and have fun with your amazing best girl friends.
There’s a recipe for success when it comes to a Galentine’s Day party and I have some of the ingredients that will make it even better.

Assign Secret Admirers
Assign secret admirers (like secret Santa) and this will keep things fun but also will cut the costs of gift giving! Set a spending limit and give each attendee a Galentine to secretly admire. You can print cards or make mobile card through the app Poster Maker: Poster Maker App
