Party Planner Guide:

Hosting A Valentines Party

Your valentine’s party should speak for romance from the invitations to the give-aways sent home with the guests at the end of the party.

The internet is full of Valentine’s Day party suggestions, tips and ideas, all you have to do is search the web, gather some ideas and guidelines and be creative.

If not, you can follow these suggestions that would insure a romantic and memorable Valentine’s Day celebration for couples spent at your home.

Heart-felt invitations:

A long stemmed red rose with a gold tag board hand delivered to all your guests is certain to charm and bring excitement to your guests.

Write in with a red metallic pen all the details of your party. Make sure to ask your guests to come to the party dressed in any red outfit or as a romantic hero or heroine.

Set the room for love:

Decorate your party room with red, gold and white heart-shaped balloons, crepe paper and creative lighting such as scented red, gold and white candles creatively distributed within the room, lamps and lots of potpourri.

Play romantic music, making certain that it is not too loud to allow couples to have an enjoyable conversation.

Romantic table setting:

Cover the tables with a combination of red and white linens. Make a centerpiece for each table with an assortment of red and white roses and small balloons of the same color gathered together with a gold shimmering ribbon. Be sure to make the center piece low enough so as to allow guests to see each other while conversing.

Food for love:

Be sure to make the food look as good as it tastes. Present dishes with a lot of garnishing to make it look attractive as well as go with the theme. Strawberries, edible roses and herbs can draw appeal to any dish that you will serve. Also serve the food on attractive platters.

Serve crab and cheddar cheese sandwiches cut into hearts (using a heart cookie cutter) garnished with fresh tomatoes.

For refreshments, you can mix up a fruit punch and add a bit of red food coloring.

Give-aways with love:

Finally, have something your guests can take home and remind them of a lovely time they had at your place. Here are suggestions:

1. Romantic scent of cologne with a love poem attached to it.

2. Small box of chocolates.

3. Romance novel tied with a red ribbon.

4. A bottle of red wine.

Try hosting a Valentine’s Day party; you’ll be glad you did, when you see couples going home with a contended smile!

Fun Party Games:

Valentines Day Game Ideas For Adults

Planning an adult Valentine's Day party is a bit of a no-brainer. Invite a lot of couples, have a few drinks, decorate with red. Done, right? Yes, and no.

You want to put a little more thought into it than that and it's good to have some games to keep things lively. If you are inviting several couples, there are many fun activities you can plan.

First, how about the "what's this item" game? Fill a paper bag with a variety of new undergarments.

These should be both men's and women's garments and can include anything from a bra to a lace teddy to a jock strap. Each couple feels around in the bag (not on the outside, as this one requires hands-on effort) and makes a list of what they think is in the bag.

You can tell people how many items are in the bag, but that's it. So you might say, there are 10 items in the bag; what are they?

Once all the lists are made, pour the bag's contents out on a table. Let everyone go through the items and see who has the most number of items right. The winning couple gets, you guessed it, the bag of goodies.

You can create a drinking game at the party that requires you take a drink whenever someone kisses you. The kiss can be from the other gender or the same sex, and anytime anyone kisses you anywhere, you have to take a drink or your drink, or to really get things going, from a shot glass.

Create a dartboard with balloons. Cut cardboard into a heart shape and staple red balloons (inflated) to the dartboard and let people take a shot at breaking a heart. Be sure to have plenty of inflated balloons on hand to replace the ones that get broken.

If your party involves a meal, make it a potluck and make it interesting. Tell everyone that the food they bring must be red. Whatever it is, it must be red. This can create some interesting dishes.

Certainly, someone can bring lasagna or someone else can bring red velvet cake. And you'll always get someone who takes this opportunity to make jello.

What about a salad? That must be radicchio. Or someone could bring strawberries for desert. Assign someone the task of bringing the bread and see what happens.

For a little fun event, consider a scavenger hunt where your guests must head out into the neighborhood or on the town for many Valentine's Day items.

Your list might include things like: a bag of Hershey's Kisses, a red heart-shaped Mylar balloon, one red rose, a stuffed Cupid, or a kid's Valentine card.

You can send the couples out as teams, or pit the men against the women. Be sure to include something that requires photo proof, like "kiss one stranger on the arm" or "give love advice to a complete stranger".

If your party-goers all know each other well, it's OK to play a simple game of "truth or dare". You might impose rules on the game, such as all the "truth" questions must originate from the college years (particularly fun if this group of friends met in college) or must be about the current spouse.

Keep the "dare" challenges clean if you think your group would prefer that or by all means, keep them racy, if that's fun too.

Editor’s notes:

I hope that you and your loved ones are enjoying your New Year and had a great New Years Eve party. Make sure this Valentine’s Day that you make a special effort to show your loved one how much they mean to you.

Our free ebook download this month includes some Valentine’s Day activities for all the family, so you can also include the kids this year to make it a special day for everyone.

The book also has some good Valentine’s Day games for the office so you can spread the cheer with your co-workers too this year – WOW! Are you going to be popular this Valentine’s Day.

Now for some of my terribly sophisticated humour – lol!

LOVE....

If you love something, set it free.
If it comes back, It will always be yours.
If it doesn't come back, it was never yours to begin with.
But, if it just sits in your living room, messes up your stuff, eats your food, uses your telephone, takes your money, and doesn't appear to realize that you had set it free.....
You either married it or gave birth to it.
