Galentine's Garden Party with DIY Floral Station and Photo Booth
Take advantage of the early spring weather by hosting a garden brunch. Decorate with floral arrangements and serve a range of tea-based cocktails and mocktails. Think hibiscus iced tea with a splash of sparkling water or a matcha green tea latte. A garden setting provides a beautiful backdrop for a day filled with laughter, conversation, and delicious tea-inspired drinks.
Also consider setting up a DIY floral bouquet station with popular flowers like roses, daisies, lilies, and some wildflowers for variety. Make sure you gather the necessary supplies too: greenery and fillers, scissors, and floral shears, floral tape and wire, ribbons and twine, vases or water buckets, and gloves and waste bins.
To complete your immaculate Galentine's Day Garden Party, have a photo booth ready to go for your lovely ladies, so you can capture all the memories. Set up a backdrop with fun props like heart-shaped glasses, feather boas, and funny hats. You can use a polaroid camera for instant photos or set up a tripod with a smartphone. This is a great way for everyone to take a piece of the day home with them.
"Secret Cupid" Gift Exchange
Add a twist to the traditional Secret Santa by doing a 'Secret Cupid' gift exchange. Have everyone bring a small, wrapped gift. It could be something handmade, a cute accessory, or even a book. Draw names to decide who gets which gift. It’s a sweet way to show appreciation for your friends and share some Galentine’s Day love.
Thinking of the perfect gift for your next gift exchange? Consider giving the Tea Bento Box or any of large tea tubes from Tea with Tae. These make for unique and affordable gifts, perfect for any occasion (but especially Galentine's Day!).
