Set the tone of your party with a fun dress code. Ask your guests to wear something that fits the theme – think bright colors, hearts, and anything pink and red. Or, a pajama party theme, matching shirts, or fancy cocktail dress, whatever you want! Be sure to clarify the dress code so there are no surprises! You could also take the time to hear what the party attendees would like to wear and work with that.
Planning your party
Take the time to decide a date, time, and venue for your event. You can either do it at someone’s house or book an event space – whatever works best for you and your guests. Decide how many guests you want to invite; sending out invites a week before the event usually works best. Check out these adorable Galentine’s Day digital invites!
