This post is sponsored by Michelob ULTRA but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.If you’ve been following this blog for a while then you already know that I’m a HUGE holiday person. Seriously, there’s just something about celebrations in general that make me so happy. And one of my favorite “holidays” just so happens to be coming up this week! I’ll give you a hint: It’s all about love, friendship and sisterhood?! Did you guess it?
It’s Galentine’s Day!
What’s Galentine’s Day you might ask? Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Leslie Knope, aka Amy Poehler’s Parks and Rec character, that occurs every February 13. Basically, it’s just like Valentine’s Day but it’s meant to be a celebration between you and your gal pals instead of your significant other.
If you’re new to Galetine’s Day, or are just looking for another excuse to celebrate with your girlfriends, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! Here’s three tips for planning the perfect Galentine’s Day get together!
1. Bring on the sweets! Similar to Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day is all about indulging in yummy treats. And what better way to kick off Galentine’s Day than with cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries?! You know that feeling you get when your food is so adorable you don’t even want to eat it? That’s how I felt about those pink and white chocolate strawberries.
For an extra special Galetine’s Day activity, you and your girlfriends could even bake these tasty treats together! (Because who wants to spend $25 on store bought chocolate covered strawberries?).
2. Don’t forget the drinks! Sure desserts are a must for any Galentine’s Day celebration but how are you going to wash down all those sweet treats? With Michelob ULTRA of course! Michelob ULTRA is the perfect substitute for wine when you want a lighter choice. Did you know it’s 60% less carbs than wine? (Yes, please!).

It’s also great to pair with cheese and other foods, too!
3. Say more to decor! Nothing gets me into the holiday spirit quite like fun decor. And Galentine’s Day is no exception! How cute are those adorable Galentine’s Day themed plates, photo props and napkins? Nothing says impromptu photoshoot more than mini crowns and over-sized glasses!
How are you celebrating Galentine’s Day this year?
