Whether romance is part of your life or not, your ride-or-die friends deserve their own special night and if you want to make Galentine’s Day one to remember, we’ve got amazing ideas that will turn it into one of your new favorite traditions! So start your party planning now and include some of these fun ideas to make the night unforgettable.
Wine Pairing Night
Sometimes the best way to celebrate the ladies in your life is with an upscale, full-on wine pairing experience! Choose one or two Butternut varieties and have everyone bring their own special pairing items. To make it even more exciting, divide by categories so that you have a mix of hors d’oeuvres, desserts and small main dishes. When you’ve got the gals, the fancy pairing experiences can happen right at home!
Wine & Paint Night
Galentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to finally host a fun Wine & Paint night! You can book a night at a professional studio or gather supplies and hold it at home. Not only will you be starting a worthy tradition and honoring your friendships, you’ll also be leaving with a work of art that you’ll all be able to appreciate and remember forever!
Galentine’s Day Goodie Bags
If you’ve got a night already planned out on the town or just a casual toast at home, there’s still a great way to make Galentine’s Day special and memorable – a Galentine’s Day Goodie Bag! Splurge on your friends and leave them with something that puts a smile on their face – sentimental items like jewelry, monogrammed glassware that will remind them of your friendship, chocolate, candy…and, of course, a bottle of wine!
Galentine’s Day Spa Night
Nothing says “I Love You, Ladies!” like a Spa Night! Surprise your friends with all the necessities for a fun Spa Night In – or all agree to bring different elements. Wine and hors d’oeuvres, facials, pedicures…even swapping massages. End the night with a Galentine’s Day Goodie Bag and you’ve definitely created a tradition that will last a lifetime.
Make it a Wine-tail Event
We’ve always been partial to toasting with Butternut, and tonight, it’s time to make it even more special! Have everyone bring their favorite Butternut varieties and instead of hors d’oeuvres and small bites, you prepare an incredible spread of garnishes, herbs, sparkling waters, simple syrups and cordials so that everyone can create their absolute best wine-based cocktail. The best one gets to reign as your future Signature Galentine’s Day Wine-tail!
No matter what you decide to do, one thing is for sure – Galentine’s Day is important enough to celebrate each and every year. Don’t forget the people that have stood by your side! Instead, spoil them with all you can and toast to friendship that never ends!
