How to Throw the Best Valentines Day Party
It’s hard to believe, but Valentines Day is approaching and fast! Get ready for all the heart shaped chocolate, red and pink decor and couples posts. Your decor is the backdrop for the party. It welcomes guests and sets the stage for a memorable evening. While some people stress about filling a party table with a variety of treats in matching colors and an overload of red and pink shades all over the room. We’re here to help you keep it simple and stress free.
Decorating Your Party
You can either go for the classic and chic V-Day party or you can think outside the box, going for something unexpected. Having heart shaped balloons and center pieces with colors varying in red, pink and whites gives your party a nice clean classic feel. You can even use paper doilies cut into hearts as a banner in the entry way., simple, easy and affordable. Another classic you need when going for the chic look are conversation hearts! Who doesn’t like a hearts on Valentines Day? No one. If you want to go for the unexpected party I would do a big balloon piece that gets everyone’s attention, a twist on an ice luge.
What to Serve
Wanting to stick with the classic theme you need to have all the “classic” desserts to go with it. Cupcakes, brownies, chocolate covered strawberries, sign me up! Decorating your desserts with hearts and roses are always crowd pleasing. Macaroons are amazing to have on V-Day, adding conversation hearts to make them even more classic. For the unexpected you can go with a boozy dessert making your party more fun. Going with a sweet and salty dessert is always crowd pleasing, adding something new and different. Thinking really outside the box by going with a nice red candy apple. I wouldn’t expect to see that at a Valentines Day party, a pleasant surprise.
If you want to D.I.Y your party favors you can make chocolate truffles and put them in a nice (heart shaped) packaging, reminding your guests of how sweet your party was. Decorating a mason jar and adding in some hot chocolate mix and marshmallows is also another idea. Including a hand written note in your favor makes sure your guests know you care. Doing something yourself is sentimental also it reminds your guests of how much you love them, what else is Valentines Day about. With all this planning you want to make sure you have a good time as well as your guests!
