Valentine’s day is a few short weeks aways… or should I say GALENTINES! I’m all about a day to celebrate LOVE but it doesn’t mean we just celebrate our partner in our life, amiright?! A few years ago I started a tradition of a Galentine’s Day Party. It is an opportunity for me to celebrate all of the women in my life! 🙂
When I entertain I LOVE to decorate the bar area with a lil” festive decor. My three go-to spots for great decor DEALS are Target, Michaels and Etsy. Target has great Valentine’s Day paper plates, napkins, banners and candy. I tend to get most of my DIY and favor items at Michaels. This year I DIY-ed milk jar vases. I spray painted them rose gold to give an extra something something to my pink, red and metallic theme! It literally took me 30 seconds to spray, let dry and add the blooms. Viola, you have a shabby chic vase! It is THE perfect decor addition. As a host I always put together a little favor. I don’t want my guest leaving without a special something something 😉 This does NOT have to be anything extravagant – think easy and fun!! Trust me, your guest will really appreciate it. I found these cute heart bags in-store at Michaels and stuffed them with some fun V-day goodies – sweathearts, a heart pencil, socks and a lip gloss. Boom, the perfect gifty!! Lastly if you know me you know about my obsession for Etsy. I could spend hours hunting for holiday decorations, entertaining goodies and gifts. I have found some real GEMS! I usually purchase my banners and art prints on Etsy. I found my ‘Galentines’ day banner for $25 – It’s SO cute!
Working on a budget for a party? I hear you!! I spent around $100 this year and added to my V-day decor collection. Take holiday decorations year by year. You don’t need to break the bank. Invest in items YOU really love! Above I’ve linked all of my Galentine’s day decor and below my home furniture pictured in this post.
