Galentine’s Day Party Decor Ideas
This lovely Galentine’s Day Party has so many amazing decoration ideas for Valentine’s Day it’s hard to know where to begin! Let’s start with the main party table because, wow! Talk about a focal point! The stunning hanging centerpiece of orange, pink and gold streamers really sets the stage for a playful and fun celebration! Underneath this gorgeous installation, the main table was covered in a white sequin table cloth and soft pink faux fur throws covered bench seatings. Mixing textures is always a great way to add interest and depth to your design!
Each place setting featured a a blush charger plate topped with the cutest red and pink lip plates! These are absolutely perfect for a Valentine’s Day party, don’t you think? I also love how the bright red linen napkins pop against the white table cloth. And did you notice the adorable acrylic favor boxes filled with Valentine’s candies? It’s the perfect keepsake to remember the day with each guest’s name personalized on top.
Other details we love are the gold details which tie the table decor to the gold in the hanging installation. Gold paper cups are at each place setting and the prettiest pink taper candles fill the center of the table in gold candlestick holders in a variety of shapes and heights.
Another gorgeous detail? The floral arrangements designed by Branches and Blooms set in gold vases on each side of the party cake (more on that in a minute)! The flowing arrangements in shades of pink and red add a whimsical element to the design that’s feminine and totally lovely.
Valentine’s Day Party Food & Drink Inspiration
If you’re throwing a Valentine’s Day Party, remember, it’s all about the sweets! Front and center at this table was the beautiful striped cake covered in kisses, designed by B.R. Sweets. You can create a similar look on your cake with these edible sugar lips from SugarMeLicious and an adorable tassel cake banner!
Other treats included these sugary sweet candy kabobs with heart shaped marshmallows, three-tiered cheese cake and charcuterie board from the Danville Cheese Gal and an assortment of Valentine’s themed sugar cookies!
A great party always has a few planned activities for guests and at this party, decorating heart shaped sugar cookies with edible Valentine’s stickers from Make Bake was that thing! I’m sure the girls loved getting to eat their artwork!
And finally, I love how the mamas had a special bar cart of their own at this party, because you know… champagne! How pretty are the champagne glasses with the candy lips on the rim? So festive and fun! The pink lip napkins are the perfect touch too, don’t you think?!
And the little gals didn’t miss out on fancy drinks either! They enjoyed bottles of rose lemonade adorned with a “love you mean it” charm, red lip cocktail stirrer and that beautiful candy kabob!
Galentine’s Day Party Favors
At a party for little girls, you can never go wrong with accessories for party favors! These darling heart shaped sunglasses in pink and red were a hit with both mamas and daughters! Plus, they’re perfect for themed photos at the party!
In addition to the custom acrylic boxes at each place setting we showed you earlier, guests at this party also left with custom favor boxes from Kuchen + The Fig that were filled with goodies like chocolate, coffee, candles and more!
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to plan a Mommy & Me Galentine’s Day Party for my friends and our daughters! I sure hope you’ve found plenty of inspiration for your Valentine’s Day celebration too! Be sure to Pin this post to your holiday board so you can reference it for later party planning.
