Valentine's Day Party Ideas - Suggestions for Planning Your Celebration

Are you seeking inspiration for various Valentine's Day party ideas?

You've been asked to host a party for Valentine's Day - the party theme is easy, but make sure you shop ahead of time for all your paper plates and party favors or you may find yourself racing around trying to find the things you need to decorate your house.

Make small gift baskets to serve as centerpieces and give them away as prizes for your games. But now you need ideas for your Valentine's Day party games. Don't worry, there are lots of games to choose from that will keep your guests entertained, whether they are children or adults. Here are some such Valentine's Day party ideas you could explore.

Have cards ready on which you have written the names of famous couples, such as Bonnie and Clyde, Anthony and Cleopatra, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Lucy and Desi - you get the idea - or you could have food and drink items, such as spaghetti and meatballs or gin and tonic. When each person enters the house, pin a card onto the back of their clothing and have them guess who they are by asking questions that can only be answered with a "Yes" or "No". They then have to team up with their "partner", and the first couple to do this wins the game.

Another Valentine's Day party idea is to have a Valentine's Day scavenger hunt - hide Valentine-related items such as red and pink hearts or balloons, heart-shaped items of any kind (candy, soaps, candles, etc.) around the house or garden. Give individuals or teams a list of the items and send them off to hunt. The person or team with the most items wins the game.

Need more Valentine's Day party ideas? You could make up your own Valentine's Day party trivia game. Check out the history of the holiday on the internet and print out several lists of facts about St. Valentine and about how the day became an occasion to celebrate with your sweetheart. Leave the lists lying around the house for an hour or two, then remove them and hand out a list of trivia questions about the holiday. The person or team with the most correct answers wins a prize.

Yet another Valentine's Day party idea is to have a Valentine hat-making contest. Divide your guests into teams of 3 or 4 people and supply them with plain white paper plates, white glue, pink and red ribbon (to tie the paper plate "hat" onto the head), plenty of heart stickers, pompoms and other Valentine-type decorations - if you look around the local craft store, you'll find plenty of inspiration - and set them to work creating a hat on one of the team members.

This is especially fun if you have the children making a hat for mom or dad. Someone can be the judge and award the prize for best hat, or you can give each team a prize for competing.

How about some Valentine's Day party ideas for kids? If you have a lot of children at your party, you should provide some Valentine's Day coloring pages and crayons to keep them occupied in between the games. They could also make Valentine's cards if you supply them with card stock and envelopes.

You will have to have food for your guests, so plan on serving a Valentine heart cake for dessert, either homemade or bought from the bakery, and heart shaped cookies. Make sure you have plenty of finger foods to eat, such as "pigs in blankets", finger sandwiches, mini quiches, bruschetta, chips, nuts, olives, spring rolls, antipasto platters, etc. Guests can then eat throughout the party and all you have to do is make sure that all the dishes are replenished as they are emptied.

If you plan your decorations, food, activities, games and other Valentine's Day party ideas ahead of time, you will be able to enjoy the party with your guests, so just go ahead and have some fun. Have a good time!
