Girlfriends. They make life a little bit softer. They get you. They are there for you; whether you need a good cry, or just a good venting session. So why not celebrate romantic love during Valentines Day, as well as friend love during “Galentines Day” this year? It’s easy to pull together a fun get together just for your girlfriends. Here are a few ideas for throwing your very own Galentines Day Party!
A Galentines Day Party Guide –
A Great “Galentines Day” Soiree needs a signature cocktail or mocktail!
These Jalapeño grapefruit mocktails are the perfect way to feel refreshed and get some heat! Want them to have an extra kick? Add Tequila! Plus, this mocktail is just like your best girlfriends – sweet but little bit spicy too 😉

It’s not a Valentines Day Party – it’s a “Galentines Day” Party! So why not have Finger Foods with a slight anti-Valentines Day theme? Great Finger foods are party essentials.
