Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity for hosting a party, but beyond the stress of party planning itself, the very nature of this holiday could lead to additional obstacles. Here are some tips to make hosting a Valentine’s Day party completely stress-free!
Know Your Prospective Attendees
We love the idea of making your party a singles mixer. If you invite couples to a party on Valentine’s Day, you can likely anticipate that most will politely decline. Many couples will have made other plans to have a romantic evening together, just the two of them. On the other hand, single people are quite likely to attend your party! Some might come in hopes of meeting other singles who would prefer not to continue being single…others might enjoy their single status, but feel left out on a day that typically celebrates the more romantically inclined. Whatever the reason, hosting a singles mixer on Valentine’s Day is a lighthearted way to embrace the holiday.
Set the Mood
Pinks, reds, and white are of course, the colors du jour. Think white linens and pink overlays, heart-shaped balloons, candles and festive garlands. You will need enough places to sit as well as plenty of space for setting out refreshments and libations, so plan ahead. You can always rent tables and chairs not only to be certain that there are enough, but also to ensure that they match and fit the occasion. We also recommend champagne buckets for an extra classy touch. Overall, renting all of your decor from one event rentals company will help keep your planning process efficient and stress-free.
Plan the Evening
Always plan ahead to keep guests on track and entertained as the evening progresses. Once they have exhausted their small talk, keep the party going on the dance floor and hire a DJ or live band to encourage your crowd to let their hair down. Live performers and party games are excellent ways to keep people engaged.
Keep it Stress-Free
Much of the stress of a Valentine’s day party can be avoided by narrowing down your audience, coordinating all your party rentals from one place, and ensuring that your guests always have something to keep them engaged.
