Galentines Day really a thing?
Posted on February 10 2019
Word on the street is that Valentine’s Day is not all about “bae”. It's possible that chocolates, roses, and romantic candlelit dinners with your significant other are totally your thing, but if you've ever found yourself dreaming about a holiday that solely celebrates you and your girl gang then Galentine's Day is something you def need to plan- and fast as it’s right around the corner ehhem..Feb 13th for those who didn’t know...
What is Galentine's Day, you ask? It's a legit question — especially if you never watched Parks and Recreation, which I admit we’ve never watched #nojudgementzone. But, that’s where it finds its origins — and if you aren't observing this fictional holiday, you’re missing out. As Leslie Knope (the creator of Galentine's Day) once said, “it's only the best day of the year”. And well, we agree she’s 100% right!
Gather your girls together because we now officially have a day where we can kick back and celebrate the joys of female friendship. Because let’s face it, without our girls life just wouldn’t be the same.
Looking for a few ways to celebrate? Here are 3 FUN ideas for hosting the perfect Galentine’s Day and don’t worry, we’ll pair off these party ideas with the perfect outfit from RTP’s very special Love Collection.
Who says no to mimosas? Spend the morning with your besties at your favorite restaurant and enjoy brunch with rounds of the best bubbly beverages. Spice up your Galentine’s brunch by bringing in a special gift for a friend that celebrates femininity and womanhood. Consider gifting your bestie with a new book written by a female author( check out Michelle Obama’s new book- Becoming Michelle Obama), or go the traditional route and bring their favorite chocolate, flowers, etc.. Now, what exactly will you wear? Keeping with the theme of Valentine’s Day, RTP has curated a collection of fun and flirty outfits that are a perfect fit for your Galentine’s brunch. We suggest keeping it fun in our Love Me Harder Ruffled Mini Dress or Thank You, Next Floral Mini Dress Pair it off with your favorite strapped heel, or keep it casual with a simple sandal.
You and your girls love wine, so use the day as an excuse to host your own wine tasting party. If you’re feeling extra festive, add your favorite cocktails to the menu. Bring out the inner bartender by creating new drinks with your girls. Dress it up and celebrate the day in our Dance Floral Queen Mini Wrap Dress. Baby Pink Feather T-Back Mini Dress.
