Planning a Valentine’s Day Party

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you are planning on celebrating it with your friends, then why not turn it into a fun party! Here are some tips for planning a Valentine’s Day party!


Whether you are in a relationship or single, why not spread the message of love with some good ol’ fun and great company! Whether you are planning on hosting the party or simply helping with planning it, here is what you will need to know.

Valentines Day Party Decor

Ideally, you can start planning the Valentine’s Day party around 3-4 weeks before the day, but even later is fine as long you can get everything ready in time.


Pre-planning items include the likes of the following;


    1. Figure out a venue – by deciding a venue you can cross out the important details such as location, date and time. If you are hosting it at your home, it may cut down on costs as you can adjust your catering budget accordingly. In the event you plan to host it elsewhere such as a restaurant, you will need to factor that into your budget.


    1. Finalise the Guest List - once you finalise the guest list, you can choose to send save the dates if you are inclined to. If you are closer to the party date, then it is best to opt out and simply send invitations. By finalising the guest count you can also finalise your party budget too.


    1. Finalise Budget – this will include figuring out what you plan on doing for the party such as catering, decor, and entertainment based on the number of people you expect to attend.



When you are close to 2 weeks before the party, you can carry out the following.


    1. Send out the invitations – you can get affordable party invitations online through Impressive Invitations. If you have a design in mind, you can have it uploaded through the online system and have it proofed by a designer for small design fixes to make it perfect.


    1. Catering – you can order a cake, food, and beverages for the day. If you are hiring a caterer then the party can be hassle free for you especially if you are hosting it. Alternatively, you can also hire wait staff to help.


    1. Games & Activities – plan some games and activities for your guests such as “Name that Love Song”, “Who’s Who”, “Lover’s Line Up” and more.


    1. Party Bombonieres – if you are planning to give away cute party bombonieres, attach cute little notes or verses of your favourite poems to go with them. If your budget doesn’t allow you to purchase bombonieres, consider a simple DIY gift such as scented candles.


    1. Music – you can choose to either hire a DJ or opt to play something from your own online playlist as a cheaper alternative.


Planning a great Valentine’s Day party can be easy with pretty invitations, great food, delicious beverages, games and more to celebrate this day amongst loved ones!
