DYI: Galentine’s Day Party Inspo

Click to watch 1 minute recap of our party for some DYI: Galentine’s Day Party Inspo:

My roommate, Victoria, and I threw a Galentine’s Day party for our girlfriends here in Washington, DC. It was one of those nights we all talked about well into the next day. And though it was a mix of women single and married, it made this Valentine’s Day one for the books! Need some DYI: Galentine’s Day Party Inspo? I listed everything we got for the party so you can throw your own!
