Love is in the air now that February is here and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether you’re hosting a romantic dinner for two or a teenage girls’ bash, here are some of our favorite Valentine’s Day party ideas.

Hearts Galore

One or two heart cookie cutters can go a long way to having a heart-themed party this Valentine’s Day. Obviously, you can use them to make cookies but you can also use smaller heart shapes to cut sandwiches into hearts. For a heart-healthy alternative, use a heart cutter to cut up fruit salad chunks!

Valentine's Day party ideas

Red = Love

If you’re sick of hearts (or don’t want to buy a cookie cutter) then stick with a simple red, pink and white color theme. Red flowers or balloons will coordinate nicely with a white tablecloth, napkins and plates. Bring the red theme into your menu with some red cocktails, such as this delicious-looking Raspberry Champagne Fizz (courtesy of Pinterest). To make these suitable for younger kids, try using seltzer instead of champagne or make some Red Velvet Mocha Milkshakes (courtesy of Pinterest).

Heart Healthy Treats

You don’t need greasy, fatty, unhealthy foods to enjoy a special Valentine’s Day dinner. Try cutting your tomatoes and cucumbers into hearts for your salad, arrange 2 shrimp on your plate into a heart shape, or try making Strawberry ‘Nice’ Cream for dessert (courtesy of Pinterest).

Love the Ones You’re With

Most importantly, it doesn’t matter what kind of theme you choose for Valentine’s Day or how much food you serve or how big the chocolate heart is for your honey. Spend time with the family and friends who mean the most to you and create a loving experience. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to break the bank to be special.
