Planning a Valentine’s Day party? Here are some tips to help you get ready for the big day:
- Pick a location. You might want to consider having your party at home if you don’t want to deal with the crowds and noise of a restaurant. Or maybe you’d like to invite your friends over for a romantic dinner followed by a game of cards or Scrabble. Whatever you decide, it’s important that you choose the spot first so that you can make sure whatever you need is there.
- Treat your guests to DIY decorations. If you’re not in the mood to go out and buy decorations, make them yourself! You can create simple yet elegant decorations using tissue paper and tape. Just cut strips of tissue paper and use double-sided tape to stick them around tables and chairs or on the wall. You can also place candles on top of the tissue paper or just put it on top of the candle itself.
- Treat your loved one to your favorite meal. Make your date feel like royalty by treating them to their favorite meal, whether it be Indian food or Chinese take-out. If you think they’ll appreciate the gesture, get dressed up and take them somewhere fancy like a restaurant in the city or even better—call ahead and reserve a private room at a fancy steakhouse or even a 5 star hotel.
- One of the first things you should consider when planning the ideal valentine’s day party is what your outfit would be like. Will it be black tie? What kind of cocktail dress will be appropriate? You can always go shopping with friends on this special day, or even ask your partner to help you pick out an outfit. What color will your dress be? What style? This will help to set up your overall mood for the event.
