Valentine's Party Ideas
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and that means that many of us are looking for ways to celebrate with the people we love. Whether you’re planning a romantic evening with that special someone or a girl’s night in with your besties, one thing is for certain: it’s time to go big or go home!
How do you plan the perfect Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day party? My friends and I have a few ideas…check it out!
Create the Perfect Photo Wall
There are few things in life as good as getting that perfect pic for your Insta story. And when you’re having a party, you KNOW that everyone will have their cameras out — time to put your best foot forward, girl!
If you ask me, the best photo walls are covered in bright, lively colors and lots of props you can use while you pose. For our photo shoot, I filled the space with colorful and shiny red, pink and gold tinsel fringe and big balloons that reflected the spirit of the holiday.
I can’t get enough of these cute “XOXO” and “LOVE” script balloons, and our models were obsessed with our cute kissing emoji. These Valentine's balloons and decorative pieces (plus our amazing photographer, Alejandra Saldaña) made for one great photo opp!
Set Up a Sweet (and Tasty) Tablescape
Let’s be honest: the best part of any V-Day party is all the sweet treats you get to indulge in. But here’s a little secret… filling up on chocolates is even better when you have a gorgeous tablescape! I decorated our tables with pretty pink florals from our friends at Adobe Rose, a healthy handful of glitter, and some of the cutest canape plates known to man (plus more balloons, of course).
Seriously, have you ever seen something half as adorable as these lip-shaped plates? They were the perfect size for our delicious cookies (courtesy of Tiers and Flours), AND they made for great props at our selfie station! And for our larger treats — like that gorgeous cake from Honey Bee Cakes — we used heart-shaped plates with a bold graphic pattern.
Get Dolled Up and Ready to PARTY!
Once the space was set up, there was only one thing left to do: get all dressed up! Nuhda Boutique hooked our models Dani and Jessica up with an awesome selection of clothing to wear, from the cool and casual to the flirty and feminine.
Of course, with a party set up this good, you’re bound to look and feel amazing no matter what you wear. So, get out there, grab your favorite people in the world, and celebrate love together this Valentine’s Day!
