Galentine’s Day is just around the corner, ladies! And we’ve got some fun Galentine’s Day ideas for you and your girl gang…
For those not familiar with this pop culture term, “Galentine’s Day” was actually the creation of Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope, in the TV comedy series “Parks in Rec.” She coined this term for a celebration with gal pals on February 13th instead of traditional Valentine’s Day with a romantic partner on the 14th. This very girl power holiday has since taken off and is celebrated by besties everywhere!
But, obviously, this year is different. With the pandemic and restrictions still raging on in several cities in So Cal., it can be difficult to go out and have margaritas or wine with your girl gang now.
But don’t fret! We’ve to some fun socially distanced ways to still celebrate Galentine’s Day this in 2021. Here are our fun Galentine’s Day ideas!
Take Our Virtual Charcuterie Galentine’s Day Design Class
If you haven’t heard, we have a virtual charcuterie design class coming up on Sunday, Feb. 21st at 11am! Tickets are $30 for the class or $40 for swag bags with lots of self-care goodies! Led by the very talented owner of Fig + Forage, Kelly Cain Smith, this virtual class on Sunday, February 21st at 11 am PST will feature a step-by-step guide on how to create your own charcuterie boards, what pairs with what, wine paring ideas, board placement, tips & tricks and so much more! You’ll also get in some girl time and meet some Inland Empire Mom Collective Mamas. Read more about it here or buy your tickets here!
Virtual Cookie Decorating Party
Choose a date to have a Zoom Cookie Decorating Party! Either have one of your Pinterest moms make the cookies or pick some up from a local bakery. You might even find some Vday decorating kits from a local cookie gal, too! Go on zoom and then sit down and decorate them together over some wine, cheese and yummy cookies.
Think of Secret Cupid like a Secret Santa. With your group of besties, draw names and then do special doorstep drop-offs of gifts. You can even meet outside somewhere like the park and do the gift exchange there.
Wine Tasting Virtually
Have each member of the group suggest a wine type and brand and then all the others need to buy a bottle of it. Then each taste the one while on a Zoom gathering, talking about why you like it, why you don’t, etc.!
You can have a cookbook club virtual meet up where you could swap your favorite recipes. Chat about the recipes, why you like them and more! Then when you’re comfortable to meet up again, you guys can all have a potluck!
Virtual Flower Arranging Party
This is the perfect chance to hang with your tribe and create a beautiful flower piece for your home. Find a local florist to help out with the flowers and then have each person pick them up. They can also be fake flowers from a craft store. Then find a YouTube flower arrangement video to all flower on a Zoom call and have some fun!
Virtual Painting Party
This one is an oldie but goodie! You can book virtual paint parties everywhere these days!
