Valentines Decorations / December 30, 2018 / Hester Higgins
It matters what you want youre party to be like. Starting with your invites you can go a little different you might be able to find some pre cut cards in the shape of a heart. If you cant find them then maybe just plain red cards will work. Using any cursives fonts will work for the writing for the cards. From there you are going to start with the party are you going for something bigger then at your average party. Hearts and red and pink are things that are the main decorations. Yet if you want to try something different you can go with a different route. Maybe instead of using both pink and red for your Valentine decorations you can use one of those colors at the main color. From there maybe you can add a white accent like white roses for the tabletops.
Serve a wide variety of flavored decaffeinated teas as well as an assortment of flavored hot chocolate. Use tissue paper and pipe cleaners to create vases full of flowers for the tables centerpiece. You can also cut out hearts from paper and use the hearts as flower peddles glued to Popsicle sticks. Additional Valentines day decorations for the table include creating confetti like hearts using a paper punch and several different colors of paper or remnants from wrapping paper. Use paper heart doilies throughout the table presentation underneath the clear glass servers. Keep in mind the foods you serve can also act as the Valentines day decorations. For example serve a variety of foiled candies in clear dishes place a variety of cookies out in clear glass bowls (arrange them so the hearts are overlapping each other) and fill wine glasses with red white and pink hard candies like M&Ms or lifesavers.
You dont have to add tons of hearts to make a Valentine party just throwing in on the day will be enough. You dont want your guests to walk into a room full of hearts; less works great. Candles are a great idea for Valentine decorations; theyll give the party a nice romantic feeling. Now if youre having a party for only two and still want to have some great Valentine day with any decorations make sure you have candles and flowers those will be the biggest decorations for a smaller party. Anything else would be too much for a smaller group of people; itll be better go with smaller things. Your Valentine decorations need to be something that shows that it is Valentine but not enough that itll over power the actual party. Most of all have fun be it a small party or a large group party. One of the best parts about Valentines Day is all of the decorations that you can line the house with.
