Valentines Day Party for Singles

By: D. Halet
Valentine's Day is not only a celebration dedicated to lovers any more!It is also a friendship and family holiday. So, if you are single and if lots of your friends and their friends are also single prefer to organize a Valentine's Day party instead of staying at home watching a romantic movie.A Valentine's Day party is also a great opportunity to meet new people: invite your friends and ask them to invite their unmarried friends too.If you have children, celebrate this holiday with them. The more people you invite, the more your party will be a success!Set an entertaining party theme such as Grease, Hairspray, Flower Power, Salsa, etc. and decorate your house with white, pink and red items such as heart garlands, cherubs, couples of birds, ...Create invitation cards and a badge that you will give to your guests: there are several websites allowing you to download Valentines images for free. Use a free photo editor to design the invitation card and the badge.Add more fun to the party by asking your guests to wear a costume linked to the party theme.You are single but there is no reason for not receiving a Valentine's gift! Here is the idea: a Valentine's lottery.Ask your guests to bring a gift that fits to everyone: a notepad, calendar, a mouse pad, a pen...

(something that is not too expensive: $5 or $10 maximum) ; decorate a box and put it near the entry door. Have the guests put their gifts in as soon as they arrive. Later in the evening, you will start the lottery drawing and will allot the gifts.The best way for everyone to enjoy the party is by organizing a potluck party. Ask your friends to bring one or more dishes from different categories such as roast beef, chicken wings, seafood, salmon, vegetables, pasta and potato salads, tomato and mozzarella,...; dessert (chocolate, pies, brownies) and also beverages (alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks) so that you do not have all the hard work to do and that way everyone participates in the development of the party.A supper-table is an excellent way to make your guests able to talk to everyone: convert your dining room table into a supper-table.Decorate the table with white, pink and red flowers and ask your children to help you to prepare the party.Choose a party set especially dedicated to Valentine's day. A party set is the best way for not having to spend the evening in the kitchen, washing the plates while your guests are having fun.Create a bar area in the reception room and add the drinks that your friends brought and prepare a bowl of alcoholic punch and another one without alcohol. This kind of drink is really useful when you host a party with many guests.You may also want to prepare some Valentine's cocktails such as:Valentine:4 cl passion fruit liquor4 cl pineapple juice16 cl champagneMimosa:15 cl champagne1 cl fresh orange juiceKir:9 cl white wine1 cl black-currant creamRoyal Kir:9 cl Champagne1 cl black-currant creamSet the musical mood: create some play lists with songs from your favorite CD's. If you have fresh single guests, do not include songs like "Without You" or "Fly Me To The Moon". Prefer South American music or set up a theme such as "The 60's"Free Reprint Articles, "Disco" or "Motown".Happy Valentine's Day :)
