Easy steps for hosting a Galentine's Day craft party

Invite your BFFs over for a fun day of crafts and sweets! It's always important to celebrate the special ladies in your life, so what better way than hosting a themed gathering to enjoy time together? This year, my mom and I designed a whimsical Galentine's Day craft party featuring playful room decorations, delicious treats and of course, creative craft activities


Simple (and easy!) decorations

Adding decorations makes a room transform and really feel like a party! Keeping it simple, make tissue paper flowers and attach them together to create a backdrop.


Flowers around the space can make it feel fresh and festive, and also find ways to incorporate hearts around the space including a table runner or heart dishes. We played up the red, pink and purple color scheme to enhance traditional Valentine's Day colors.


Set-up personalized craft stations

For an extra special touch, use square trays as a dedicated area for the crafts! The stations are perfect for organizing craft supplies, everything from wooden hearts and paints to blank cards and glitter.


With all the craft options available, pick one or two that you want to focus on. A few ideas include decorating wooden hearts, making cards, creating Valentine's Day poppers, or even wine labels. Just make sure you have lots of glitter and other lovable elements.



Sweets for your sweetest Valentines

You can never have too many sweets, especially for the sweetest time of the year! There's so many delicious treats to choose from, but a grazing board and cookies offering enough variety to give guests the option to eat what they want. Depending on the time of day you're hosting, you can play around with breakfast foods or small hors d'oeuvres.


We decided to make homemade shortbread jam cookies along with creating a grazing board with different chocolates, yogurt covered pretzels and sweets. To add different heights to the table we used a pink milk-glass cake stand for the cookies and a low marble cheese board for the other sweets.
