Hosted by Layered Vintage, Pow Wow Design Studio, Miho Catering Co., and Barçon Catering Co., Galentine’s Day SD was E V E R Y T H I N G. 7o’s themed and all things groovy, it was an Instagrammer’s dream. Gold foiled donuts, pretty pink cocktails, and a disco ball – I didn’t want to leave empty-handed. And I didn’t. I walked away with lots of photo booth photos and a feeling of female empowerment.
Galentine’s Day SD
So what is Galentine’s Day? It is also a celebration of love, but for your girlfriends – single or not! Apparently the term was coined by Parks and Rec.. Now, I’ve never seen that show, but it has produced lots of memes. And being the social media addict I am, I see a lot of those.
I’m all for romantic love, but what about all the platonic relationships in your life? They deserve as much attention, if not more, on Valentine’s Day. And that’s exactly what this event brought to light.
There were probably around 200 women who attended the Thursday party at Moniker Warehouse. Imagine the grooviest, most radical, all girl 1970’s disco. Now imagine that with 10x the glitter! The whole place was beautifully decorated – faux fur pillows, cute furniture, and fresh flowers galore. I know that I, myself, couldn’t stop fawning over it all. On top of that, everyone was in their best dress. Seventies’ fashion was all about the bell sleeves, jumpsuits, and platforms. And if you know me, you know I love a good themed party.
Empowered women empower women
I’m lucky to be able to work with some pretty rad ladies and have some of the best friends a girl can ask for. Empowered women empower women – and in a world where we’re constantly having to prove ourselves and our worth, girl power is super important.
Ovaries before brovaries, always ✌?
