Planning a Valentine party can be a daunting task, especially if you have not experienced planning a party by yourself. If you are clueless about planning a party this Valentine's Day, you should know some useful tips. For one, you should plan the party as early as one month before the date. This is to ensure that your party will be successful. Plan the exact date and time, the location, guests, food, decorations and music, and the theme. It is a great idea to have a theme for your Valentine party so that you can easily plan it and the guests will have an idea about what to expect and what to wear.
When thinking of a great Valentine party theme, you should consider your guests. Are you planning to invite couples, singles, kids, family and friends, or a mixture of all these? If so, you have to make sure that your Valentine party theme is appropriate for your guests. For example, you do not want to have a famous couple Valentine party theme if your guests are singles. If you want to know some great examples of Valentine themes, check out the list of ideas below.
_ If you are planning to have a singles-only Valentine party, you should consider a theme that is appropriate for single people. One example is a pajama party. You should only do this if you want to invite close friends. Or you can have a theme which revolves around a specific decade, like 50's, 60's, or 70's. Another great idea for a singles-only party is for them to wear a costume which represents their favorite romantic book or movie character, or a famous romantic character in history. Having a romantic party does not require couples for it to be romantic.
- Planning a Valentine party for couples is easier because the common notion about Valentine's Day is that it is about couples expressing their love to their partners. One great idea for a Valentine party for couples is for them to dress up as their favorite famous couple. It can be a famous celebrity couple like Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. It can also be a famous couple from movies, cartoons, or books like Popeye and Olive, Barbie and Ken, Homer and Marge Simpson, and so on.
- If you are planning to have a Valentine party for kids, they can also wear costumes form their favorite cartoon or comic book characters. For children, it is important to prepare party games that they will enjoy. It is also important that you keep them occupied at all times. They can make crafts while you are preparing food in the kitchen so that they will not get bored. One great craft idea is for them to make their own Valentine cards that they can give to their loved ones like their parents, siblings, or friends. It is not just a fun activity for them. It is also a great way to explain to them the meaning of Valentine's Day.
- For the food, you can prepare foods that are appropriate for the occasion. For example, instead of serving round pizza or cake, why not serve something which is heart shaped? It is not only more interesting but it is also perfect for Valentine's Day. You can also serve chocolate fondue or chocolate bars. Chocolate should always be present in any Valentine's Day party.
