Get Creative with Valentine’s Day Party Decor!
When you hear “Valentines’s Day”, you might only think about red and pink hearts, but you don’t have to go that route again setting up your party venue using those traditional Valentine’s Day decorations. The old ways might be too sweet for your guest, so try using other color combinations with the classic Valentine’s Day color scheme.
Here are some ideas you can try:
1. Heart-Shaped Balloons
You can include some colorful heart-shaped balloons and place them all over the party area. Fill a dozen helium balloons with air and let them float to the ceiling.
You can also make DIY heart-shaped balloons by sticking small red and pink heart stickers on your white balloons to make them look lovelier. Consider using glitter or smaller balloons to fill the insides of the balloons as well.
2. DIY Flowers
You may cut out and make exciting types of flowers out of cartons. Create roses, tulips, and other sorts of flowers with your imagination. They can be colored, painted, or decorated. Make unique bouquets with these one-of-a-kind homemade flowers.
3. Rose Petals
Here’s a creative way to boost the romantic vibe in the air. You can scatter actual rose petals all over the party area. Place them on tables, countertops, in the bathroom, and near the beverage and dessert sections.
4. Candlelight Setup
Depending on the mood of the evening, you may choose to skip the use of electric lighting altogether and rely solely on candlelight. Candlelight is the epitome of romance, after all. However, always be cautious and keep a fire extinguisher ready. Nightlights (heart-shaped or otherwise) is another excellent soft, gentle light source.
