Food: Make your food festive and incorporate it into your decor. We did custom cookies, fun cocktails (Add cotton candy into them for extra cuteness), and snack boards aka shark-coochie boards, pizza night, tacos night, whatever your heart desires. A little bit of everything is okay too.

Activities: Play fun games + watch a movie + sip & paint + simply just catch up

DIY Tic Tac Toe

This is an old-school game with a festive flare. They came as plain natural wood, I painted them pink and red and topped with with coordinating pearls. I love the way they turned out. This is a great something for your guest to play while waiting for things to get started.

Conversation Starters

Can We Talk cards are great conversation starters. We would use the Womanhood Edition but they also have The Couples Edition, The Kids Edition, and more. They are a great way to open the lines of communication. Can We Talk cards are created by a black woman-owned business.

Custom Snacks

Custom treats are a great way to bring a theme to life. This image is from Oh So Paper, and I created the potato chip bag in Canva and printed it out on regular paper. Use two-sided tape to seal your bag after you place the chips inside. If you aren’t into chips it can be cookies, candy, or anything else you think of. Oh So Paper is a black woman-owned business.

These custom water bottle labels are designed to match the potato chip bag. They are a festive pop of color for your table.

What is Galentine’s Day without a cocktail or mocktail if you insist? We picked up these Black Girl Magic rose’ and wine from Target. They are made by the McBride Sisters, they are two dope black women killing the alcohol game. They also have a magical backstory.
