HOW TO HOST YOUR OWN GALENTINES PARTY

Even though this is primarily a wedding blog and we’re all about the love for your OH up in here, we still think there’s no love quite like that between you and your besties and It’s always nice to take the time to appreciate your gal pals right?! So with valentines just around the corner wouldn’t it be the cutest idea to throw a little Galentines party?! And actually, this theme doesn’t even have to be right by valentines day, it would also work for a pretty epic bridal shower, hen party or bachelorette right?! Cue the heart balloons, confetti canons and all the girl power!

SET THE TABLE
First up, we love the idea of setting the table with adorable heart themed accessories! We got some adorable pink heart plates from Postbox Party and popped heart lollipops and heart napkins around them. We decided that we wanted everything to either be pink or red just to really pack those girlie lovey vibes into everything! This included the flowers running down the centre of the table, and the lovely Beq from Beq’s Bouquets did not disappoint in supplying us with an abundance of gorgeous pink blooms! You’ll also spot our brand new chick flick quote stickers on all of the glasses on the tables, because wants a girlie evening without a little chick flick fun right?! You can grab the stickers here if you like and they include funny quotes from films like mean girls, legally blonde, clueless and more! We filled the drinks with pretty pink lemonade and added a splash of grenadine to create the ombre effect. If you want to be even more extra with your table then you can add a bunch of pink snacks too like pink wafers, pretty pink popcorn or cupcakes! We love these influential women cookies from Aww Sam!

UP YOUR COCKTAIL MAKING GAME WITH THESE CUTE ACCESSORIES!

Ask anyone that knows me well and they’ll tell you that when it comes to your everyday alcoholic bevvies my tastebuds are pretty limited. I’ll either choose a Disaronno and coke or a vodka soda & lime at a push. Cocktails however are a whole different ball game!! Seriously guys, I love them all. There’s nothing quite like sipping on cocktails while having a good ol natter with your girlfriends am I right?

If you’re the host of a cocktail evening though then you’ll want to make sure that you’re suitably equipped! Besides, I’m preeeetttyyyyyy sure that cocktails taste even better out of a beautiful glass! Luckily, we’ve teamed up with wedding gift list Prezola to share these gorgeous cocktail making accessories that will have you swooning for weeks and if you want to get your mitts on some of these gorgeous goodies then all you need to do is create an account with Prezola, add them to your gift list and send it onto your friends before the big day!

Could you tell we were channeling Spring while we shot this? Prepare for some seriously cute cocktail fun….
