It’s a Valentine’s Day Party!
Thinking about throwing a Valentine’s Day party? You probably have a million ideas, but it’s best to start with a theme. Are you having this party for kids or adults? Do you want it to be sophisticated or silly? We have a few favorite themes you just might be able to draw inspiration from…
This type of Valentine’s Day party can be fun and carefree, and of course, covered in chocolate. Instead of focusing all on love, focus on something a little more sweet – like desserts! Explain to your guests that this is a dessert-only party, so they may want to eat dinner ahead of time – but make sure they save room for sweets! A fun way to get everyone involved is to have them each bring their favorite dessert. Make tasting tables and you can even have a contest for “Richest Dessert,” “Most creative star ingredient,” and “Overall all Chocolate Champion!”
A single mingle!
Don’t have a plus one this Valentine’s Day? No big deal – especially for this party. Encourage everyone you invite to bring a coworker or another single friend and spend the day everybody hates to be alone – together! Hang out over good food and even better conversation. Need décor ideas? We say ditch the traditional Valentine’s Day red and pink hearts, and go for bright fun colors like Kelly Green, Cobalt Blue and Bright Orange
Love is in the air…
Ok, this one is for the lovers – the people who love Valentine’s Day, pass out candy at work and sign their name with a little XOXO… We get it, Valentine’s Day is the one time of year when you let everyone you love know that you’re thinking about them. Go ahead and deck this party out in all the shades of reds and pinks you can find. Get crafty with DIY projects and bake all kinds of sweet treats! Encourage your guests to wear red and play trivia games about famous couples throughout history!

Ah, young love… Do you remember Valentine’s Day when you were younger? Passing out home-made Valentines, hoping to get one from the person you liked – maybe even getting a “Do you like me? Circle YES or NO” note attached! Wouldn’t it be great to bring that innocence back? Well we say give it a try. Pass out hand-made Valentines at work, or if you know your way around the kitchen, bake up some sweet treats! Break out a few red or pink decorations in your office or cubicle, or set out a vase with some simple flowers. Instead of being a Valentine’s Day hater, bring out the silly-but-sweet side of the holiday!

A Perfect Pair
Paul Simon wrote, “She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes…” Well, I’m not sure about diamonds, but it doesn’t matter is you’re walking in Christian Louboutin heels or Converse sneakers – take a minute to think about where the soles of your shoes have been. Around town? Around the country? Around the world? And who has been there with you through these adventures? Taking a stroll gives you time to catch up, talk about your day, make plans and just enjoy each other! Love takes us all in a lot of different directions, but the journey getting there is half the fun.

We like to think that Valentine’s Day is a day to remind everyone how much we care for them. From parents & siblings, nieces & nephews, friends & best friends, husbands & wives…the list goes on and on. There are countless ways to let someone know you love them – and if you can’t quite find the words – a Valentine’s Day card can certainly help.
Your loved ones will appreciate the gesture whether it’s in the form of an ecard or a personalized paper card. From funny ecards and romantic ecards to cute ecards for the kids – it’s easy to send a little love to everyone in your life. If you know someone who would be super excited to get a Valentine’s Day card in the mail then it’s time to start looking for the perfect one today. Customize Valentine’s Day for everyone in your life!
