I had such a good time on Good Morning Washington sharing all of my DIY Galentine’s Day ideas. Now I’m going to spill all the tea on what I got and how I used it. It was fun to bring all of these pieces together to make them look like something. They are certainly easy enough for you to recreate as well. If you haven’t seen my JoAnn’s Haul, watch it HERE. I show you everything I purchased for this segment.
When you are decorating a table you kind of can’t go wrong. You can go for a simple clean look or a more the merrier type of deal.
DIY Galentine’s Day
Let’s start with the decor, this Conversation Heart candy tree was the first thing that came to my mind when working on this segment. I’ve made similar trees for Easter, Christmas and for a Candy Theme party. This is an easy way to level up your decor. Materials: Styrofoam cone, hot glue gun, and whatever you are attaching to it.
You can get some really nice glass canisters/vase from the store. I simply filled it with pink Starburst and added a ribbon to it. It’s so cute though, and it was effortless. Besides who doesn’t love all pink Starburst.
This picture frame was a natural wood color, I painted it, added stickers for decoration, and popped in a dope pic of me and the ladies doing the absolute most.
Garland is another easy way to pull your look together. They do most of the work for you, this came in a natural wood which might be fine depending on your color scheme. Since it didn’t fit mine I painted them up for a nice bold pop of color. You know lips are my zhuzh.
Seeing it is even better than reading about it.
the table setting nesting plates always make things look fancy. This is a regular size paper dinner plate that says Happy Valentine’s Day, and the dessert plate with inverse colors. I added a notecard on top of the dessert plate. This is a great personal touch to add to your soiree. You can write a personal note to each guest, or you can have each guest write a note to someone special when they arrive.
Name cards make me feel fancy, so I wanted to add some to my table setting. If you are fancy and can write each name in calligraphy, that isn’t my ministry, but I would print out a cute version and stick it to the card.
Chocolate molds are another fun and easy way to bring your theme to life. The molds are super easy, you pour in your melted chocolate, pop them into the fridge, and check back in 15 – 20 minutes. Candy Melts come in a variety of colors, so try them all.
I used the same process as above to make these super cute and festive candy melt chocolate pops. I won’t confess how many molds I have, but just know that I have a lot. Lips are my thing, so if it has a lip on it, then you know I likely own it.
Dranks, dranks, and more dranks. You can’t have a DIY Galentine’s Day Soiree without drinks. These wine cubes are perfect for such an occasion. For your guests who do not drink alcohol, you can make a lemonade version. Mocktails are all the rage, the process is the same. Pour the beverage of choice into the mold and add fruit if you’re fancy and wait for it to freeze.
Look how dope that looks. Cheers to you ladies!!!
