This year we may need to leave behind the donut walls and the heart-shaped charcuterie boards– But, this doesn’t mean Galentine’s get-together is cancelled. On the contrary! This is the year we get to move away from tradition and try something new. Perhaps, you go all out with a creative photo back drop or you bake a ton of cookies to pass around to the neighbors. Whatever your pursuit, decide to make someone else’s day by reminding them why you care about them and appreciate them as a friend.

Picture Perfect

This is for the gal pals who love a good photo! Create a photo backdrop on the front lawn and have women drive up and pose for some fun, goofy pictures. Dress up or wear matching pink pjs…honestly, the themes and outfits are endless. I love these DIY candy heart balloons by Studio DIY.

You can still have a wonderful buffet just consider individual containers or have one person at the party serve up everyone’s plate—less people touching the serving ware. You can purchase some individual containers from Amazon here and can always purchase mini popcorn/chip packages. Making your guests feel comfortable is more of a priority than a cute table setting this year. Here is Catch My Parties 21 Social Distancing Party Food Ideas.


Secret Valentine

Think Secret Santa but with a Valentine card made with love. Grab some friends and swap names. Then on February 13th, drop off your card with a little something extra—candle, chocolate, coffee or a flower.
