Have a great Valentine's Party

Posted on :2014-01-30 in

When February 14th rolls around, sometimes it’s more fun to celebrate as a group than it is just as a couple – and it’s definitely better than being alone. Because the holiday is so pairs-focused, figuring out how to have a great Valentine’s party can be a bit of a mystery.

 

What kind of food do you set out? Is there a way to create an exciting theme for couples and singles alike? Would it be better to host at home or find a room to reserve?

 

There aren’t a lot of hard-and-fast rules for the occasion, which means you have a lot of freedom to try whatever you can come up with, but not a lot of examples to use as inspiration. Here are some pointers that might help you get started:

 

How to have a great Valentine's Day Party

Figure Out Who You Will Invite

The guest list is the most important part of any party – without them, you can’t have an event in the first place! In this special case, it is crucial you understand the relationship status of those you wish to have attend. Are you going to have a mixed group of singles and couples? Just pairs or people on the market? There are a myriad of possibilities no matter which direction you go, so making this determination will go a long way toward setting up your plans for everything else.

 

Come Up With a Creative Theme

Knowing who will be joining your gathering will quickly allow you to begin planning the central idea for the evening. If you more of your friends are unattached than betrothed, it might be fun to through a speed date night based solely on the people you know well. You can make the environment much more relaxed because there are mutual connections, meaning no two people will have to hit it off immediately and hope for another meeting like in similar situations. And, if you have people with a particular interest, you might choose to focus them around an individual topic – Shakespeare’s love poems, perhaps?

 

Serve Appropriate Food

It has often been said the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but a delicious feast is really just an accepted part of a great party no matter what. Think about how many people you’ll be serving, then set about coming up with the menu. You want something that is a bit decadent to heighten the sense of romance in each course, culminating with a sumptuous dessert to end the evening. If you are having two or three couples over, you might go for higher-end meats like rack of lamb. On the other hand, if it will be a large group, it could be wise to select a chocolate fountain and provide some fruits to dip.

 

Foster Conversation

Regardless of who you are having over, there is nothing worse than uncomfortable silence. Encourage people to talk about different topics – related to love and otherwise. Let couples talk about how they met and what attracted them to the other. Have singles discuss what they look for in the opposite sex or dating horror stories to lighten the mood. Once you get the ball rolling, chances are good you will all be laughing before you know it.
