Valentine’s Day can ignite passions that were on their deathbed, refresh commitments and rekindle memories of a time when love reigned supreme.
Valentine’s Day is not just a time to buy your partner beautiful cards, flowers and chocolate. For couples looking to take their relationship to the next level, the day provides the best opportunity to celebrate love and romance and create or recreate enduring memories.
Having a Valentine’s Day party will make this special day memorable for couples. Here are nine Valentine party ideas to celebrate Valentine’s day in style:
1. Private Dinner or Lunch
Organizing a private dinner or lunch for couples could be one of the most exciting Valentine party ideas. Couples get an opportunity to spend quality time with each other. To make the party interesting, you can arrive for the dinner or lunch in a limo or any other black car service.
Imagine arriving in a chauffeured limo and then having a candlelit dinner with your partner at a rooftop restaurant as soft, piped love ballads rent the air.
After dinner, you can take a walk in the park and enjoy the cool breeze and the beautiful sight of others in love, walking hand in hand and whispering sweet nothings to each other. Well, there are many packages like this one on Valentine’s Day, but you have to book early to avoid last-minute disappointments.
2. Romantic Movie Screening
Watching a romantic movie is the perfect Valentine party idea. This is ideal for couples who enjoy cozying up and snuggling next to each other in a romantic movie screening.
If you want to create a lighthearted atmosphere, pick a romantic comedy or a musical to lighten the mood. Or if you would rather watch something with more gravitas, pick a movie with a sweeping love story that tugs at the heartstrings.
If the weather permits, an outdoor movie screening will add to the romance and make it unforgettable. Besides, it’s more fun watching your favourite romantic movie outdoors.
To spice the experience, have enough puffy pillows, rustic decorations, an immaculately laid out wooden table, and plenty of drinks.
3. Masquerade Ball
A masquerade ball can be a unique Valentine’s Day party idea, but it requires tact and meticulous planning to pull off. Deciding on a theme and finding a location that accentuates that theme is the first hurdle to overcome. When everything goes according to plan, a Valentine’s Day masquerade ball will make your party the event to remember!
4. Dinner Entertainment
Dinner seems to be very common in our list of Valentine party ideas, but that’s only because a romantic meal can be so intimate for couples.
Attending a dinner show as a couple makes a night out experience memorable. This could be a cabaret party where you and your partner indulge in different kinds of meals and drinks. Showing up for a Jazz performance or a theatrical production is another ingenious way of spending quality time on Valentine’s Day. You get to relax and unwind as you dance, laugh and enjoy the music with your partner.
5. Wine Tasting
Wine tasting sounds like a fantastic party idea for Valentine’s Day. Nothing beats a romantic wine tasting event that includes tasty bites. Party goers will love taking a sip of wine and then share a cheeky peck on the lips with their partner. If you are looking for romantic wine ideas, try a bottle of Rosé.
6. Charity Work
Who says a Valentine’s Day party can’t be charitable? Doing charity work may not have been your first idea for a Valentine party idea, but this could be a great way to do something meaningful with your partner.
If you have kids, taking your children to a community event for kids is a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. As the children enjoy themselves with other kids, you and your partner get to enjoy quality time together, assured that the children are under the care of qualified, responsible staff. This is especially important if you have young kids. The daily grind of taking care of them can take a toll on a couple and relegate romance to the back banner.
To plan for a children event, there are vital issues to keep in mind. These include enquiring if the local laws require you to get a particular licence, or what training the event organizers need. Other factors to consider are whether the event venue is healthy and safe for kids, the age limit of kids scheduled to attend the event, appropriateness of the event, schedule of activities, availability of first-aid kits, among other issues.
7. Special Cooking Class
Preparing a special cooking class event is among the more unique Valentine party ideas. Find a cooking school without a Valentine’s Day event and partner with them to organize a romantic evening where couples can enjoy chocolate soufflé or attend an Italian cooking class.
8. Dance Party
What would a Valentine’s Day party be without some music and dance in the mix? You can organize a dance lesson for couples on Valentine’s Day. You can do this on your own or with a team. For instance, consider teaming up with a reputable dance school that has experienced dance instructors. After the dance sessions, hold a cocktail party for your guests to complete a memorable Valentine’s Day party.
9. Singles Mixer Event
Last but not least, we wanted to include some nifty Valentine party ideas for single people too. Valentine’s Day is not only an intimate day for couples, but it is also suitable for those who are single and ready to mingle.
If you are uncoupled, attending a singles mixer party on Valentine’s Day could be a life-changing event. The aim of a singles mixer event is to create an atmosphere where people can mingle, dance and get to know each other better. This is a fun Valentine party idea, because you can incorporate games to make sure no one gets bored and to encourage interactions throughout the night.
Valentine’s Day is more than just an opportunity to celebrate love. It’s a time to connect with your partner and rekindle passions that may have started to fade under the busyness of life. Beyond buying gifts for each other, attending Valentine’s Day parties can be just what you need to reignite romance in your life.
