Galentine’s Day: Girls Night In Ideas. I’m sharing easy menu options and ideas for hosting a fun evening in with your girls. These are great ideas for celebrating Galentine’s at home.

What is Galentines Day?

The holiday started as a joke on the show Park’s and Recreation. It has sinced morphed into a legit holiday for the homies. If you’re unfamiliar with Galentines’s it’s basically when you get together with your girls to celebrate friendship.

You can enjoy a Galentine’s celebration regardless of if you’re single or booed up. I share here how my daughter, mother-in-law, and I have an on-going tradition of doing a Galentine’s tea. My friends and I have done Galentine’s brunch, but we decided to switch things up a bit and enjoy a girl’s night in.

Girls Night In Food Ideas

So, let’s talk about what’s most important, the menu. For our dinner, we decided to make it an Italian theme dinner and we each brought a dish.

A pot luck style dinner makes things easier for the hostess. I also find that when you’re doing pot luck it’s best to set a theme, so you don’t end up with a hodge podge of random foods that don’t compliment each other. Our menu consisted of lasagna, salad, meatballs, various desserts, and wine.

Girls Night In Activities

Once there is food and wine, I can have a good time with my friends, just sitting around chatting. However, I think having an activity for your girls night in is always a good idea.

Girls Night In: Make-up Session

We decided to have a get glam make up session. One of our members, Kori, happens to be a make up artist (you can see her work and products here. She is bomb!) offered to give us a tutorial on putting together a glam look.

We all brought our own makeup and brushes and she schooled us on how to do lashes, and a smokey eyes. It was so much fun and I learned some new techniques. Having someone come in and do a make-up class is a good option

Girls Night In: Passion Party

Host a passion party. There are companies that will send a host to your home to tell you about passion products and how to use them. Let your hair down and let your inner freak out (ayee!).

Girls Night In: Movie Ideas

If you just want to keep it low key, have a chick flick movie viewing. Some of my favorites are The Devil Wears Prada and the Sex and the City Movie (that scene when Carrie gets left at the alter gets me every time *insert tears*). Make sure to include a popcorn bar.

We kept our attire casual with matching leisure wear so we could be relaxed. As much as I enjoy dressing up, I liked being comfy and casual and just hanging out with my friends. I like that Galentine’s day, just as with Valentine’s day, is an opportunity to remind the people in your life just how special they are to you. However you decide to celebrate these holidays, remember that’s what it’s all about.
