Celebrate the power of love with a Valentine's Day party
September 09, 2010
There are few days of the year that are like Valentine's Day. Every February 14th, people stop and remember to tell that special someone how much they care, and even those who are single can stop and try spreading a little love in a world that sometimes could use a bit more compassion. Whether you have a significant other or not, you can still celebrate this unique holiday. Why not gather together your friends and family and host a Valentine's Day party this coming year? It will be sure add a little happiness to your guests lives.
To begin, you'll want to be sure that you choose fantastic invitations. You'll certainly want to include the colors associated with the holiday - pink and white. While focusing on the coloration is a good place to start, you should consider selecting invites that contain some of the imagery as well. Announcements adorned with hearts are the perfect direction to take and will likely stir up a loving feeling in those who receive them. If you would like to take a different path, you should think about sending out ones that feature Micky and Minnie mouse - two of the world's most famous lovebirds.
Once you've sent out your invitations, you should turn your attention toward the decorations for your shindig. As was the case when you were picking out invites, you should consider the colors associated with Valentine's Day for your decor choices. For starters, you should hang some heart tinsel garland around your home to set the appropriate atmosphere. From there, hanging a red metallic fringed door curtain above your entryway can be an effective way to welcome your guests into the get-together. In addition to the garland and the door curtain, you may want to provide some soft lighting with a string of heart-shaped lights. Dimming your lights and switching these on will add a terrific ambiance. As a final touch, why not inflate some red and white balloons? Your friends and family are sure to appreciate these party staples floating around your gathering.
What would a party be without some delicious food? You'll definitely want to stock up on plenty of supplies for partygoers. Having an ample supply of paper plates, napkins and cups that are brightly colored and prominently feature vibrant colors and hearts on them is a necessity for your soiree. In addition to plenty of supplies, you should think about purchasing some exciting extras. One of the most well-recognized symbols of Valentine's Day is a beautiful bouqet of red roses. A good way to include this staple of the holiday is to add some light-up red roses. Handing them out to your guests as a keepsake to remember the party will put a unique stamp on the gathering.
The Beatles may have said it best with their song "All You Need is Love," and there are few days more tailored to spreading that most wonderful of sentiments than Valentine's Day. Throwing a party in honor of the day will show those closest to you how much they mean to you.
