Valentines Decorations / January 1, 2019 / Mara Beasley
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.
1. Make a statement to anyone who walks into the room with a huge banner that is hung on the wall or across the doorway. Nothing says "Happy Valentines Day!" like a Valentines banner 2. Use lots of different sized Mylar balloons all over the place. Have them hanging from the ceiling stuck to walls and even randomly on tables and chairs. 3. Have some helium balloons floating around too. Not only are they going to be mostly on the ceiling but they are fun to bat around turning into impromptu volleyball games from time to time. 4. Have paper hearts stuck everywhere. Tabletops chairs walls and even stuck on the ceiling. You can either buy premade ones or cut them out of construction paper. 5. Stuffed Valentines heart pillows and boxes of candy makes great party favors.
Take sheets of plain white paper and cut them into snowflakes using all different patterns (use your imagination). Place the hearts over the snowflakes and trace around the edges. Cut the snowflake so it fits over the heart and glue them together. You could also trim the snowflake so it is slightly smaller to give the heart a framed look. Hang the hearts throughout your home on mirrors on glassed over wall hangings and from lighting. Project Idea #3 Create a simple paper chain using red pink and white. Alternate the colors in a pattern that pleases you. Theres no right or wrong way to do this. Hang this with additional Valentines day decorations like the paper hearts mentioned above. Consider hanging the hearts from the chain itself. As an added twist cut large hearts out from pieces of decorative scrapbook paper.
