February isn’t just for couples to celebrate and exchange Valentine’s Day gifts; it’s also an excuse for you to celebrate self-love and/or your besties with a memorable Galentine’s Day party and heartfelt gifts. There are no rules for a Galentine’s Day celebration — it’s all about how you and your friends want to spend time together, but if you plan to play host this year, you’ll definitely want to go all out with some cute Galentine’s Day party decorations.
Feb. 13 is technically the official day to celebrate your besties, but it can be challenging to wrangle everyone together, so you technically have the entire month to mark the occasion. Rather than host a typical hang, embrace the theme and transform your home into a pink and red filled party featuring sparkly backdrops for photo opps, heart-shaped plates and maybe even some mesmerizing edible glitter.
Unless you plan to use your streaming options for a movie marathon, you’ll also want to make sure you have a game or two on hand to keep everyone entertained. And just in case you haven’t been taking notes, Billboard Shopping went ahead and dug for all the essentials to inspire you on your party decorating journey.
Keep reading to shop all the essentials that will earn heart eyes from your friends.
