Valentine’s Day is full of hearts and kisses, but how about switching things up for a Galentine’s Day get-together with your gal pals? This bubblegum-themed bash has SO many good pun opportunities (“I chews you!” “You blow me away!” “Stuck on you!”) and the pink-on-pink theme couldn’t be more perfect. Invite everyone over to craft valentines or just chat and eat some sweet treats.


Get step-by-step instructions and photos for the must-have DIYs featured in this party:

Be sure to provide lots of pink treats for your guests. If you don’t want to make dessert from scratch, buy cookies or cupcakes from the store and give them a bubblegum look by adding pink frosting and pink candies. We used gumballs (big and small), candy-coated chocolates and pink nonpareil sprinkles. If you have any gum balls or candies left, set them out in cute pink bowls.
