The typical Galentine’s Day Party usually revolves around a pretty brunch set-up and lots of rosé but I wanted to try something different. Instead, of DIY waffle bar I decided to do a DIY pasta bar. Honestly, is there a better combo than pasta, wine and cake?! I think not. This set-up was pretty inexpensive and only took a little bit of planning on my part. Here is how I made my Rosé themed Galentine’s Day Pasta Party idea come to life.
Set Your Party Palette
Start by setting the tone with a color palette. This is ALWAYS where I begin. I get so overwhelmed when the creative juices start to flow that I end up going in 900 different directions. If I set a strict color palette it helps me make decision with decorations and attire. After hours of scouring Pinterest I settled on a rose, gold and wine color combination. Couldn’t think of a more fitting palette for a Pasta & Wine Party.
Luckily, I have an incredible group of friends in my neighborhood so this Valentine’s Day I wanted to give back to them. They have been my support system over these few past trying months. As a way to thank them I set up this informal get together for them. Their only job was to wear pink or white.
Wine flowed from start to finish courtesy of Seven Daughters. I could not think of a more fitting wine for a Galentine’s Day Party. From wine-in-a-can to their sweet yet delicious Moscato to their bottled reds we were all in wine heaven. Here is how you can put together your next Rosé themed Galentine’s Day Party!
Items Needed For A Galentine’s Day Party
Chose A Focal Point in the Room – I started with this LOVE balloon. It hung on my mantle and I decorated from there.
The Chic Series loves a touch of sparkle. To add a little shimmer I purchased this sequin table runner. Knowing that the runner and the balloon would bring lots of shimmer I decided to keep everything else minimal. I chose a white linen table cloth to cover our dining room table and set a more elevated tone.
From there I complimented the shimmer with touches of gold. I used these heart place mats along with gold plastic silverware. No Valentine’s Day is complete without candlelight so I added in these gold candles that helped the room smell delicious.
Each guest received a goody bag that were used as their place setting. These pale pink goody bags with gold embellishments fit the party perfectly. Each guest received a Valentine’s Day Wine Glass & three wine-in-a-can from Seven Daughters.
Mason jars filled with rose color candies lined the mantle and guests were again encouraged to help themselves. Hershey Kisses are always a fan favorite and come in lots of different color options.
The centerpieces were vases filled with white hydragenas and Wine Bottles from Seven Daughters. Twist off wine bottles allowed the party to feel informal and invited guests to help themselves.
Last but certainly not least was the centerpiece. No Valentine’s Day Party is complete without a dessert. It was a masterpiece from Drip Cake Bar. The owner Tanner created the most beautiful and delicious cake that perfectly fit our Rosé Galentine’s Day Party.
How-To Create A DIY Pasta Bar
Start by filling a large bowl with pasta. If you have more than 5 guests trying doing two different types of pasta.
Use a chips and salsa bowl and fill each section up with a different pasta sauce. I did marinara, vodka and a chunky yet spicy arrabbiata sauce. The options here are endless. In the middle of the dish where salsa would typically go I put shredded mozzarella cheese.
Pale pink bowls and plain white plates were stacked next to a simple LOVE sign. This along with the flowers and DIY Pasta Sign helped tie in the party decor.
Of course, there was wine served at the pasta bar. Again, guests were encouraged to help themselves so I set four wine glasses on a serving tray alongside the Seven Daughters Red Wine Bottles and encouraged them to help themselves.
Guests are known to congregate around food so we also placed a charcuterie board here with delicious cheese and bread pairings. We kept the serving simple so it could easily move from the serving area to the table once we took our seats.

Don’t stress guests out with attire restrictions. Give them a theme and encourage them to have fun with it. My theme was Rosé. No one wants to show up wearing the wrong thing so share your outfit. Have fun with the dress code and the rest will fall into place.
Have fun with the Valentine’s Day colors. Pink and red look incredible together – don’t be afraid to mix them!
Everyone’s outfit would be perfect for February 14th. Whether you are heading to a Galantine’s Day with the girls or a sexy date night with your man we have you covered. Don’t forget to bring your Seven Daughters along wherever you are headed.
