Celebrate Valentine’s Day 2018 with your best friends
At LENZO, we’re all for ladies celebrating ladies, so this #February14, ditch the beaus and get the girls together for a fun night in.
Galentine’s Day is traditionally celebrated the day before V day, and it’s the perfect chance to get your girlfriends together to eat, drink, and laugh as you pay homage to self-love, love of life, and love that comes from friendships.
So, let LENZO be your guide as we show you how to host a fabulous Girl’s Night In this February 2018 for Valentine’s Day, shot by Katie Harmsworth and starring the beautiful Tully Smyth, Georgia Zogopoulos, and Lucille Croft.
The Decor: BELLE BALLOONS + THE SMALL THINGS CO
Our girls had a fab time in The Apartment by interior designer Lynda Gardner, which played host to our special event. Wherever you decide to host your Galentine’s Night In, go for maximum impact and deck out the entire space with soft grey, white, pink and red balloons. We’re loving the whole playful look of letting balloons en masse float to the ceiling with long, white ribbons that touch the floor.
Shop the look: balloons
Touches of gold + marble can also help to add a luxe vibe to your décor. You can create this look by presenting your food and drinks on a gold metal + mirror cart bar, rectangle marble + gold tray, pink agate serving board, and marble cake stands – all courtesy of our friends at The Small Things Co.
The Florals: CARTEL FLOWERS
The universal symbol for love, you can’t have a V Day party without red, pink and white blooms. We love the idea of scattering long-stemmed roses in vases or boxes around the room to create atmosphere – and nothing smells sweeter than fresh blossoms from Cartel Flowers.
Shop the look: pink + red roses by Cartel Flowers
The Gifts: THE HAMPER EMPORIUM
So, what do you get your best gal pals to thank them for staying by your side through thick and thin? A pamper hamper from The Hamper Emporium, of course! Inside each boutique box, you’ll find an exquisite collection of chocolates, lotions, sparking wine, or sweet nibbles, depending on your selection. So, go ahead and spoil the ones you love!

The Drinks: YELLOWGLEN x LENZO
And what’s a party without some bubbly?! The ultimate go-to drink for festivities, raise your glasses for a – responsible – serving of delicious strawberry + champagne or frozen raspberry daiquiri. The essential ingredient? Yellowglen’s Bella Pink Moscato. Make your own signature cocktail on the night, incorporating your favourite fresh fruit. Don’t know where to start? The DIY for our LENZO Raspberry Daiquiri is coming to our blog soon - #WatchThisSpace!
The Sweets: EMELIA JACKSON CAKE DESIGN
Treat yo’self (and your girls) to some seriously mouth-watering sweets for everyone to enjoy throughout the night. Think donuts with pink icing, marble sponge cake, and bite-sized meringues. We’re drooling at the mouth just looking at these amazing desserts by our friend Emelia Jackson.
Shop the look: cakes and donuts
The Clothes: POSY ROBES
Just because you’re staying in for the night doesn’t mean you can’t dress up! Get your girl gang in matching robes or pyjama sets to lounge around in as you gossip, drink, and eat until the early hours of the morning. We can’t get enough of these adorable gowns from Posy Robes – not only are they super comfortable, but they can double as a great gift idea to give your pals.
Shop the look: robes + pyjamas
