Adult parties can be as fun or as formal as you want. Depending on the crowd you might want a super fun childish event with all the works, magicians, face painters, games, etc. If your crowd is a little more reserved, an event with less pomp and circumstance may be a better option. Find the party that is ideal for your group and either go all out with decor and activities, or keep it to a minimum with just a slight hint of a theme. What matters is that you and your guests have a good time!
Valentine’s Day Party
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for grown ups anymore. Hearts are making an appearance into more children’s birthday parties now a days. Check out this exclusive party excerpt from Linda Kaye’s Party Book.
Sweeten up the invitation by sending along a small heart-shaped box of chocolates.
Invite the partygoers to help ‘decorate’ the room by dressing in pinks and reds. A vase with pink roses will make an elegant centerpiece and the pale pink buds will inspire guests to create their own delicate buttercream blossoms. Scatter red rose petals on the party table for a dreamy accent to the decor, and switch your usual light bulbs to pink ones to cast a rosy glow in the room. For an extra touch of Valentine’s Day charm, use large doilies as placemats and tie napkins with bows made of red licorice strings.
Party Fun & Games
Fill a pastry bag with pink, red and silver foil-wrapped candy kisses [and guess how many are in the bag.]
Valentine’s Day Menu
Think pink and red when planning the menu! Use cookie cutters to make heart shaped sandwiches filled with strawberry cream cheese. A silver bowl filled with fresh strawberries adds that special touch, especially when accompanied by a plate of confectioners sugar for dipping.
[Set up the valentine tables with these personalized placemats. They look beautiful on the table and are a great favor to take home.]
Mix up a pretty-in-pink punch with ginger ale and strawberry sherbert [served in Disposable Champagne Glasses] . Adults can sip on pink champagne as they toast the cake creation of their budding chefs.
