Leslie Knope from “Parks and Recreation” hosts a Galentine’s brunch for her and all her friends yearly on Febuary 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day! Although you probably won’t receive a mosaic portrait made from the crushed bottles of your favorite diet soda, or a personalized 5,000 word essay of why you’re so awesome, you can still enjoy a great Galentine’s Day with your best girls using these ideas!
Have a Netflix watch party of classic romcoms or episodes of your favorite show (like Parks and Recreation!)
“Can’t Buy Me Love”, “Sixteen Candles”, and “The Princess Diaries: Royal Engagement” are a few of my personal favorites!
Invite your friends over and ask them to bring a favorite board game or snack! You’ll be able to learn more about each other while creating some friendly competition.
