With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, homeowners are looking to celebrate and spread the love by throwing parties. Whether you’re single or taken, here are some of the best Valentine’s Day party ideas you can use.
Romantic comedies are a staple during Valentine’s Day. Millions of people snuggle up with their loved ones (or alone in a blanket) every year to watch a feel-good romantic movie. Why not turn this hallowed tradition into a party idea?
Having a rom-com movie marathon is great because it’s simple yet highly effective in giving you the Valentine’s Day feels. Invite some friends over and gather around your living room with pillows and blankets. Make sure you have a screen big enough for everyone to see. Don’t forget the snacks, too!
If you don’t have a large enough living room (or simply have too many friends), consider holding the movie marathon outdoors. Rent a projector and watch movies all night in your backyard. Lay down some blankets and cushions so everyone can get cozy. Maybe hang some string lights, too, to get the vibe going.
Valentine’s Day is often associated with desserts. As such, it is the perfect time to enjoy some sweets with friends and family. This is one of the more low-key party ideas on here, but it is enough to get everyone feeling the love.
To start, prepare your ingredients in advance. Cute, matching aprons are optional. Then, invite friends and family over so you can bake and decorate the pastries together. After that, you can eat the pastries and enjoy a movie or two.
Hosting a game night with a Valentine’s Day twist is a great way to enjoy the special occasion and break the ice with acquaintances, too. You can do simple games such as pin the arrow on cupid, scavenger hunts, or a love song guessing game.
You can also take things up a notch by holding a full-blown Valentine-themed trivia night. Add some snacks and cute decor, and you have yourself one great Valentine’s Day party.
If you want to do something a little more extravagant, a themed costume party is the way to go. It’s kind of like a Halloween party but with costumes related to Valentine’s Day and love instead. People can come as cupid, candy hearts, or just dress up in pink or red. At the end of the night, you can even hold a vote for the best costume.
Who says Valentine’s Day is only for couples? Love comes in all shapes and sizes, including love for your girlfriends and love for yourself. A perfect way to celebrate both is to hold a spa party. You can do at-home facials and massages. You can even hire someone to come to your home to give you and your friends a mani-pedi. This self-love party is not only fun but also very relaxing.
Have you ever wanted to sing your lungs out as if you were born to do it? Then, the answer you’re looking for is a karaoke party. Karaoke parties a great because they allow you to spend some quality time with the people you love while still having fun with music. It also gives people a chance to express themselves through song.
Sing your favorite romantic tunes, heartbreak anthems, and empowering songs. Some prime examples include John Legend’s “All of Me,” Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well” and “22,” and basically anything by Adele.
If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day party that works well for all ages, an arts and crafts party is the ideal choice. You can gather together and make Valentine’s Day cards, wreaths, decorations, and anything else you can think of. An arts and crafts party allows you to express yourself creatively while still showing some love to your friends and family. Kids, in particular, will enjoy this activity.
Single or not, hosting Valentine’s Day brunch at home is great idea. It is a lighthearted way to enjoy the special day and fill your bellies with mimosas or bellinis.
Ask friends and family to come over and bring their favorite brunch dishes. Alternatively, you can cook the dishes yourself or with help at home. You can also make it kid-friendly by hosting a dry brunch party (or just serve them juice instead).
Another tasty way to celebrate love is by arranging a fondue night. Put out two options for the dip: something salty (cheese) and something sweet (chocolate). Then, prepare all the fixings that guests can dip into the hot fondue — marshmallows, strawberries, pretzels, bread, crackers, apples, etc. Everyone can have a lovely time mixing and matching. And who doesn’t love chocolate and cheese?
If you live in a community managed by a homeowners association, there are some things you should know before throwing a party. Homeowners associations typically have rules that residents have to follow. These rules can range from what color you can paint your house to how often you should mow your lawn. When it comes to parties, though, three common rules come to mind.
It is imperative that homeowners adhere to these rules when hosting a party. Some associations may also require you to inform them of your plans to throw a party in your home. Violating these rules can result in serious fines and other forms of penalties.
Hosting an HOA Valentine’s Day party is definitely a fun way to celebrate the special occasion. But, if you’re throwing it in an HOA community, make sure to understand your association’s rules first. In doing so, you can avoid the consequences of rule violations.
