The day of love, Valentine's Day is here again. For some, it is no different a day, than the regular one. But for party lovers, dedicated lovers and St. Valentine's fans (?!), it is indeed a very special day! But do you know why this day is celebrated? Well, to give you a sneak peek into the Saint Valentine's Day history; this day is celebrated in the memory of Saint Valentine, who was the only person to have encouraged love in the 3rd century. Marriage and love was a sin, a crime for youngsters, especially soldiers. It was Saint Valentine who supported and asked the youngsters to marry in secrecy.
Now, let's come back to the party! This one is no normal party, isn't it? Remember, the whole world is celebrating! Themes for this party should be different, and certainly romantic. If you don't know any, don't worry! Stop racking your brains, and read through the party themes given below. Check them out!
Party Themes for Valentine's Day
Red is said to be the 'official' color of love. And thus, obviously of Valentine's Day too. What can be a better idea, than to make this color, a party theme for adults, and teenagers alike? You can decorate the party hall entirely, in the color red. You can do this, using lots of red heart-shaped balloons, red light bulbs, scented candles, red ribbons, confetti etc. Stick a few balloons to the ceiling, while you can let some lay simply on the floor. Welcome your guests with red roses, and bid them with candies, wrapped in red gift paper. If you have many transparent vases, pour some cranberries into them; they really do make a statement! Food can include spaghetti, red velvet cake, strawberry punch and some tantalizing jello jigglers! Attire should also include red. Last but not the least, play games like heart poppers and red beads to complete the party!
A Matchmaker Party
This is a special theme! Specially for singles who wish to have a partner, for this one day (at least). Decorate the venue in any way you wish to, but add some humor and romance to it so that singles don't feel nervous. Big cutouts of cupid waiting to strike you, can do the job. Play some romantic numbers in the background. Place candles and fresh flowers at every corner of the party hall, to make the guests comfortable. Games play an important part at this party. Keep games like truth and dare, couples' treasure hunt, balloon balance, grab your man, paper dance etc. Valentine bingo, Valentine's Day crafts, pin the cupid can be some party games for kids. Keep the food simple; something that people can easily carry to a corner!
This is one of the Valentine's party themes for the couples. For this party, ask the guests to dress up as the famous couples of Hollywood, or of any walk of life. Put a big cutout of you and your partner, saying perfect pair at the entry. Decorate the party hall with posters of cute couples in love. Have games like couple quizzes, search your love blindfolded, etc. Waltz and paper dance are also a must for this party theme! At the end of the party, declare every couple as perfect and give each one a cute Valentine's Day party favor.
The Costume Party Pageant
Let's face it, costume parties always rock! Literally. Preparing for a costume party is so much fun, isn't it? What's new? This costume party will be like a pageant for the couples. Competitions, compatibility tests, and much more. Every couple has to dress in a way, that they look as though they're 'together'. Remember, the costume will also be judged. In this one, you cannot copy a Hollywood personality, or any personality for that matter. Got you scratching your brain, right? Well then you don't have time. Start thinking, NOW! You'll have to hunt for judges too!
Travel Back in Time
Though this day has gained momentum in the past few decades, the true love sagas are always the ones we've only heard of. Let it be Romeo and Juliet, or even the fairy tales we grew up listening to. This Valentine's Day, you can keep a vintage theme of sorts. Everyone needs to dress up in a manner that represents old traditions. This is your chance. You don't get to live a fairytale everyday, do you? The cuisines should be traditional meals people served for common dinners. And, play a treasure hunt. One partner can represent every couple. The clues have to be questions/hints related to the other partner. You better know everything about your Valentine.
Hope you enjoy any theme that you choose. See to it that each person, couple or not, has a part in the party. Celebrate this Valentine's Day with not only your loved one, but with a difference. Have fun!
