Valentine’s Day has a way of stirring up emotions. Most people love it because they can share the holiday with a significant other. Some people hate it because they’re single. Others consider it nothing more than a “Hallmark holiday” or simply the name of a saint.
Why does all that matter? If you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day party it means your guest list may be divided on how they perceive the holiday festivities. There are special considerations that have to be made to make it a memorable Valentine’s Day party for everyone.
Singles, Couples or a Mix - Decide Before Sending Out Invites
The most important decision you’ll need to make is who you’ll invite to the Valentine’s Day party. Will it be a couples-only affair or an event where singles can meet? You could also choose to use Valentine’s Day as the theme but make it a love fest for everyone regardless of their relationship status.
Ultimately, who you invite depends on the type of Valentine’s Day party you want to throw and how romantic you want it to be.
Send Out Invites at Least a Month in Advance
One of the most popular things to do on Valentine’s Day is treat your sweetheart to a special dining experience. That often means making reservations well in advance. If you want to maximize your RSVPs, send the party invites out at least a month in advance. That way you can catch people before they start making other plans.
Set Up a Valentine Card Craft Table
Giving out Valentine cards is a time-honored tradition that begins in grade school. Bring out the inner kid by setting up a Valentine card craft table at the party. Set up an assortment of appropriately colored construction paper, glitter, markers, color pencils, scissors and glue. You can even turn it into a contest by giving out awards for the most creative cards.
Treat Guests to an Overload of Sweetness
Sweet treats are a staple of the Valentine’s Day holiday. It’s about the time when people completely forget about their New Year’s resolution to eat healthier and give in to their chocolate cravings. Satisfy that urge with a spread of sweetness. This is one of the few occasions when the dessert table will always outshine the main course.
Go All Out With Floral Arrangements
The most natural decor for a Valentine’s Day party is big, beautiful bouquets. Flowers not only set the tone, you can also hand them out as party favors at the end of the night. That way everyone gets flowers on Valentine’s Day.
