Hey Girl! A Modern Galentine’s Day Table

Hey Girl! A Modern Galentine’s Day Table // Hostess with the Mostess®

You’re cordially invited to pull up a chair (and put on some heart sunnies) at this fun and girlie Galentine’s Day table!

(This tablescape matches the Galentine’s Day Drink Station I shared earlier today. You can check that out here.)

Anyways, it’s easier than you might think to recreate this look at home. 🙌 Especially with the help of my Galentine’s Day printables!  You can even edit the place cards (or “tent cards) and matching big heart gift tags yourself to display the names of your own favorite gals. 💕

You Wild Majestic Unicorn

Speaking of the tent cards – you might notice they have funny little phrases below the names, like “you wild majestic unicorn” and “you poetic and noble land mermaid“. (There are 4 unique designs). These phrases are inspired by the Leslie Knope character from Parks and Rec – who’s widely credited with popularizing Galentine’s Day.  You can also edit this text to say whatever you want, though!

4×6 signs are a versatile item that look great worked into a centerpiece, drink station, or any party table! Both of these designs are included with this Galentine’s Day collection:

Place Settings

I knew from the get-go that I wanted big paper hearts to be the star of the place settings, and designed these printable *hey girl* hearts in 4 colors: pink, red, white, and turquoise blue. The big pops of different colors make the table look more eclectic and fun. 💖💛❤️💙

They also coordinate well with the straw flags used in the fruity cocktails & mocktails:

The “tablecloth” is actually a fabric shower curtain from Target! (This is one of my favorite tricks for instantly expanding my table linen options. Fabric shower curtains are usually very affordable + accessible. You’ll never look at the bathroom decor aisle the same!) 😉

Here’s are the resources for the place settings:

  • Pink Ombre Paper Plates – Michaels
  • Sequin Heart Bracelets ($1 each) – Michaels
  • Heart Shaped Sunnies – Amazon
  • Gold Plastic Forks – Target (also available at Michaels & Amazon)
  • Lip Napkins – Marshalls

Modern Valentine's Day Party

Here’s a peek at the matching signature drink station so you can see how the elements tie together:

Table Centerpiece

The centerpiece is made from plastic fruit that I painted to match the party colors. (I bought this fruit set and a medium sized faux pineapple from Amazon. Some of the fruit was also used on the drink station.) Most of the pieces were painted with craft paint, but I spray painted the pineapple gold. Also added some party circles and confetti for extra detail. ✨

Side note: the printable hearts look super cute as gift tags too! You can glue them to the front of a gift bag, or use them “tag style” and write a message on the back.

Girlie Accent Decor

Round up some other fun girlie decor to dress up other areas of your party… and don’t forget to “borrow” from what you already own! I actually pulled a print from my office wall to help decorate the bottom of our bar cart. 😍 Playful Girl Gang balloons, marbled balloons, and tissue bunting fans rounded out the look.
