Sometimes there’s no place better to be than at home with all of your best friends. Here are some ideas for a cozy, comfortable Galentine’s Day experience at home that will be anything but ordinary.
Food – Bamboo House, Frenchtown
Nothing screams girls’ night in like sushi at home and Bamboo House in Frenchtown is taking it up a notch by offering gorgeous (and delicious) sushi party trays that will wow your friends. This 2022 Happening List winner is serving up the freshest sushi in the area and their stunning displays can pull double-duty as dinner and a centerpiece. For the gals in the group who aren’t sushi fans, Bamboo House also offers amazing Thai and Japanese dishes that will keep everyone full and happy.
Drinks – Old York Cellars, Ringoes
Sure, you can pick up a bottle of wine at any local store, but where else can you find a one-of-a-kind collaboration with a hip-hop legend? Head over to Old York Cellars to snag one of their newest wine creations with Darryl “DMC” McDaniels like their 2020 KING DMC Reserve Red. And, if you want to make your Galentine’s Day extra special, consider using their custom label service where you can design your own wine label to fit the theme of the evening.
Activity – Zoom Workshops with Paper Floral Company, Frenchtown
It may be cold and gray outside, but with help from the Paper Floral Company, you and your friends can bring some springtime freshness into your home. Paper Floral Company offers Zoom paper flower workshops for those who want to get crafty at home. Their kits include paper, templates, video instructions, coloring materials, and stem wire. Just browse which package you’d like to choose on their website and all of the materials can either be mailed to your house or picked up at their studio in Frenchtown. Finally, you’ll have some gorgeous flowers for your home with no green thumb required!
