Celebrate female friendships on February 13th with a Galentine’s celebration! Make it a craft night or a cookie decorating party like I did last year or just a festive luncheon like I planned this year! Decorate a table in all of those fun traditional Valentine’s colors and party on!
The weather was lovely here in Florida, so why not take this party out into the garden? I set a fun table for four with a bold red tablecloth and added my over the table rod.
There are so many occasions to invest in flowers, that I see no reason to indulge in the expense of them at Valentine’s Day when the prices are at the highest and the quality may not necessarily be the best. Therefore, I decided to use these fun and colorful tissue paper honeycomb decorations for my luncheon.

Supplies to style your own Galentine’s party:
Place settings began with white pierced chargers which were topped with Kate Spade Rutherford Circle Red dinner plates and topped with pastel pink heart plates I tend to bring out this time of year. Little silicone baking cups shaped like tea cups were filled with cupid’s mix of M & M’s.
White dinner napkins are tucked into DIY clay heart napkin rings finished off with pink silk ribbon.
In addition to the ball shapes of the decorations I added a few heart shaped honeycomb decorations to my tabletop.
Pink handled flatware rounded out the place settings along with substantial wine goblets.
When dining out of doors, make sure you are not using a fine light weight crystal that might blow over in the wind.
These little silicone teacup baking cups make the sweetest treats for tea parties, too!

At the ends of the rod I tied and attached large bows of fun Valentine’s print ribbons. If you don’t want the support on the ends of your rod to show, you can easily cover it with a pool noodle. I have seen them at Dollar Tree in pink and white recently. Just slice up the side of the noodle and wrap it around the upright of your rod.
