Top Ideas for a Joy-Filled Galentine’s Day with Cupcake Vineyards!
If you’re planning on showing your friends and family a little love and appreciation this Galentine’s Day – we’ve got a few excellent ideas on how to incorporate some extra joy (and a little sparkle!) to your festivities! At Cupcake Vineyards, Choosing Joy is kind of our thing and we want it to be your thing too – no matter how you choose to celebrate!
set the scene with love-inspired decorations
A little party decor goes a long way! Pick a vibrant color theme and run with it – we personally think yellow exudes sunshine and fun times 😉. Decorations should be fun so don’t stress it – use items you already have on hand or pick up some party staples such as balloons, streamers, or a pretty tablecloth. At the center of your table, you can’t go wrong with a good flower arrangement, wine, and especially snacks! Consider a balance of sweet and savory appetizers to set out for everyone to nibble on, like this great recipe for refreshing Pineapple Salsa – Cupcake Vineyards and chips! We suggest pairing it with a fun, bright cocktail like this French 75 for a match made in grazing heaven.
goodie bags for adults
Yes, goodie bags for adults are a thing, we promise! What a better way to spread some extra love than something for guests to take with them after a great Galentine’s Day together? You can never go wrong with something as simple as a card with reasons why you care and love about someone but if you’re looking to plus up – here are some of our top recos under $25:
- Eye shadow palette featuring your besties favorite shades
- Face or eye masks for some small moments of R&R
- Sparkling nail polish kits – pairs perfectly with bubbly in hand too!
- Cute hair scrunchies because aren’t we all always losing those things?
- Fuzzy socks for the coziness we all crave
- Gift card to a movie or local coffee shop – for future get togethers!
an activity (and wine!) for everyone
If there is one thing we know, not all Galentines are created equal. We all have different interests and it’s important to celebrate in whatever way brings us the most joy. Wine is similar in that everybody has their own taste preferences. Here are some simple, unique ways to create core memories with your crew and some Cupcake Vineyards too!
WATCH THE BIG GAME
We’re just as surprised that Galentine’s Day and the Super Bowl exist on the same day this year but what a better way to watch the game than with friends, mimosas, and a bbq on the deck. Here is one of our favorite mimosa recipes, the Winter Grapefruit Mimosa.
Recommended Pairing: Cupcake Prosecco
An Italian sparkling white wine that features crisp notes of freshly sliced peaches, lemon, and honeydew. A lively way to start a fun night when hosting a Galentine’s party!
Find a local studio to host or DIY an at-home painting party to let your friends show off their inner Picasso! Don’t worry, a paint-by-numbers kit is perfectly acceptable!
Recommended Pairing: Cupcake Prosecco Rosé
This Italian sparkling is pink perfection with effervescent bubbles and notes of berries and citrus. It’s extra-dry for a less sweet taste that is sure to excite all your friends who believe “Rosé all day”.
VIRTUAL COOKING CLASSES
We 10/10 recommend a virtual cooking class with friends – food and fun *chef’s kiss*! Cava is sourced from prestigious vineyards in Spain so bonus points if you cook something of traditional Spanish cuisine! Salud!
Recommended Pairing: Cupcake Cava
Crafted in Spain in the traditional Champagne method, Cupcake Cava sparkling wine delights any palate with fine bubbles and vibrant flavors of lemon, pear, and toasted brioche on the finish.
MOVIE & TAKE OUT
The trifecta of cozy nights in – a movie, takeout, and your favorite glass of wine! You cannot go wrong with a movie night at home with friends! A rom-com would be the perfect “sweet” complement to our Moscato d’Asti!
Recommended Pairing: Cupcake Moscato d’Asti
For those that love a slightly sweeter wine with a vibrant, effervescent profile, Cupcake Moscato D’Asti fits the bill. You can’t beat the beautiful bouquet of peach and nectarine touched with honey. Delicious!
Bring out all of your best, most-hilarious party and board games for a traditional at-home game night with friends and family. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone!
Recommended Pairing: Sparkling Rosé
Dancing bubbles mark this style of Cupcake Sparkling Rosé with gorgeous hints of raspberry and floral notes. A truly exceptional sparkling that deserves a place at any Galentine’s Day celebration.
With Cupcake Vineyards celebratory collection as part of your Galentine’s Day, you are sure to find something for everyone! Enjoy creating memories that will last, with the people you love and appreciate so much, for just being an important part of your life. Happy hosting this Galentine’s Day ladies!
