Celebrate Galentine’s Day with a Good Old-Fashioned Slumber Party

If you celebrate Valentine’s Day at all than you’d probably agree that the holiday is about more than just the love of your partner, it’s also the perfect opportunity to celebrate your best friends, sisters, pets, parents, and anyone you care about. It’s a fun opportunity to spoil those people you love with something a little extra sweet. This is exactly what we had in mind when we put together a Galentine’s Sleepover – except until like when we were ten – this version is filled with bubbly!

As always, AC Photography captured every detail so beautifully.

Details are important with any party but the best thing about hosting a girls night in is that your friends are going to love anything you have planned. After all, that’s why your best friends to begin with – right?! We kept it simple with a selection of Rom-Coms (although truth be told – we ended up watching true crime documentaries instead!), popcorn, and a Nail Polish station.

Chantel at Glass City Cupcakes whipped up the most adorable assortment of sugar cookies that were perfect for our sleepover theme this Valentine’s Day. Some resemble glasses of bubbly while others featured a fun play on the Netflix logo by using Chick Flicks in it’s place.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to break the rules with a little dessert before dinner but it’s always a nice gesture to offer your guests something a little more substantial. Charcuterie boards were pre-set on the tables and paired with Red Wine Mules.

We styled our eat-in kitchen area with an assortment of balloons and a tablescape featuring florals from Hafner Florist.

Most of the items pictured below were picked up from our local Homegoods store. If pink plates and champagne coupes aren’t something you’d use often in your home – be sure to hit up the After Valentine’s Day Sales this year so you’ll have them stocked up ahead of next season. With the low prices you’re sure to get, you won’t have to feel bad if you end up only pulling them out to use once or twice a year.

 

Cyndi wasn’t lying when she said Girls Just Want To Have Fun. Whether it’s Valentine’s, Galentine’s, or any other holiday or not – having a girls night in was fun when we were younger and it can be just as fun now. Drinking champagne in your jammies and vegging out while you relax with your girlfriends is just got for the soul. I hope you enjoyed all of the details from this good old-fashioned slumber party.

Where do I begin? If you're considering hiring Event Prep as a wedding planner, stop thinking and DO it. Cassandra was the BEST decision we made for our wedding day (besides each other, of course!) I was working full-time, in graduate school full-time, and trying to plan the wedding. Because of her, I was able to truly relax, especially on our wedding day, and live in the moment which I am so grateful for. We can’t thank her enough for helping to make our wedding day exactly as we had hoped and dreamed it would be! 

"The best decision we made"

LOVE NOTES.

Event Prep is the best decision you can make for your wedding planning needs. Period. From the beginning vision phases, to the tough decision making moments, Cassandra is there not only as a seasoned professional but as a friend. There were times where I was at my wits end, and Cassandra became my place of peace and calm. She was always 10 steps ahead of the game and guided me in the right direction. She made me feel like my wedding was her only focus and her efforts showed through. My husband and guests were absolutely speechless at our ceremony and reception. They were truly blown away. None of it would've been possible without her. Simply put, Event Prep made my wedding dreams come true.

You will not be disappointed in your selection with Event Prep. Cassandra is the most professional, kind and bubbly spirit you’ll come in contact with.  We both have full time jobs and knew we would need all the extra help we could get.  Cassandra and Event Prep were the answers to my prayers! She made sure that we were all able to enjoy our day and not think twice about what needed to be accomplished. When I needed her, she was right there. I could not possibly fit a list of all the things Cassandra assisted with into this review. However, I can say she is a big reason I am able to look back on my wedding day with joy and happiness. Having the ability to focus on our guests and enjoy the most important day of our lives was priceless.
