Say happy Galentine's Day
You've heard of Valentine's Day, but what about Galentine's Day? A day dedicated to celebrating friendships, Galentine's Day was created by Leslie Knope - a fictional character in Parks and Recreation.
During this episode of 'Galentine’s Day’, Leslie invited her closest friends to a delicious brunch to celebrate their friendship, as a time for “ladies celebrating ladies”. A tradition we think we can get on board with!
Unlike Valentine's Day which is all about romantic love, celebrate the love of friendship a day earlier on 13th February. It doesn't matter if you you’re happily single or all loved up, Galentine’s day is a time to celebrate the amazing relationships you have with your closest friends.
Send flowers for Galentine's Day
We all know that flowers have a special meaning, but which flowers represent friendship? Alstroemeria is officially the flower of friendship, so an ideal choice to send for Galentine's Day. Or if you're looking to add a vase-full of sunshine to their home, then a spring flower bouquet is the perfect pick. For something more traditional, choose a rose - not the red variety which stops hearts at Valentine's Day, but a yellow rose which is another flower which represents friendship.
