valentine's day party invitationsYou’ve been hit by the love bug!  Valentine’s Day is a little over a month away and it’s never too early to start planning.  If you’re thinking about hosting a Valentine’s Day party it’s time to start browsing for your Valentine’s Day party invitations as they’ll need to be sent out about three weeks before your event.

Outside of when I was a child at school, I haven’t been to many Valentine’s Day parties in my adult years.  But when you think about it, having a Valentine’s Day party is a great party idea and creates a really fun party decor or theme.  Valentine’s Day parties are perfect if your group of friends are all single and well, ready to mingle!  Or, if everyone is coupled up, it’s a great way to spend time with friends and celebrate love.  Since the hustle and bustle of the holiday season will be over, it’s a great time to plan a get-together.

Our Valentine’s Day party invitations are unique, sassy, sultry and romantic – the perfect style to put your guests in the ‘mood’ for your party!  If you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day cocktail party, we have an adorable Two Hearts Martini invitation by IB Designs that features a dark red background and a black silhouette of a martini glass with two heart olives.  For something a bit more formal, like a sit-down romantic dinner with friends, our newest Valentine’s Day invitations include filigree background designs in pink and red with ornate heart designs  at the top for an elegant presentation.  Or, if you’re planning a Valentine’s Day party for the kids, we have the most vibrant, whimsical and fun kids Valentine’s Day party invitations which feature classic V-Day hearts, conversation hearts, pink and red stripes, cupcakes, candy and xoxo themes.  Below are some of our favorite and most popular Valentine’s Day party designs…

Not sure how to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day party?  Below are some great Valentine’s Day party tips to help you plan the perfect party…

Food – Do something fun like chocolate fondue or a chocolate tasting party.  For kids, make heart and cupid shaped sugar cookies and let kids frost and decorate with sparkly sprinkles, edible pearls and colorful icing.

Drinks – For adults, offer your guests red or blush wine to go with the occasion.  Or, concoct your own love ‘potion’ or martini to make your own signature love drink.  For kids, serve up a fun bowl of punch made with red or pink fruit juices and a fizzy soda like 7-Up.

Fun – Play matchmaker and give each guest details about another guest at the party…without their name.  During the party each guest will try to find out who they’ve been matched up with –  great conversation starter and ice breaker!  For kids, have each guest make their own mailbox out of a tissue box or large envelope and distribute valentines during the party.  Prize for the best Valentines!

Decorations – Local party supply stores can be expensive if you choose patterned or copyrighted designs, however with Valentine’s Day, it’s really easy to create a beautifully decorated party room with just a few simple color combinations at really affordable prices.  Choose a red table cloth, pink and purple napkins and silverware and scatter the tables with Valentine’s Day glitter.  You can event use paper doilies to create coasters and heart back-drops.  Hang up red or heart patterned streamers and balloons.  Simple, but fun and decorative!
