Even if you don’t have a significant other this Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate! There are tons of fun ways to celebrate the holiday with friends (plus, you don’t want to miss out on all the yummy Valentine’s candy, do you?). Here are some cute and easy gal-entine’s party ideas:
Fondue Party – who doesn’t love fondue?! Ask every guest to bring something for dipping and that way, you don’t need to supply everything yourself. Plus, you can mix it up and do a cheese fondue celebration or do chocolate – or both (also, I’ve been dying to try this peanut butter fondue – looks so easy). Some of my favorite things for dipping are bananas, apples, pretzels, marshmallows, strawberries, and angel food cake.
Apps and Desserts – apps and desserts isn’t necessarily specific to Valentine’s Day, but I think this is a great standard party to have. Apps and desserts are easy, quick, and are more than enough to leave everyone feeling full. You can customize it to heart day with cute cocktail napkins or Valentine’s themed desserts.
White Elephant – over the holidays, someone I work with was going to a white elephant party with her girlfriends where everyone had to bring their favorite beauty product to exchange. What a fun idea! Just because it’s no longer the holidays doesn’t mean that gift exchanges are off limits. There are so many directions you can take this for Valentine’s! Set a price limit and have everyone bring their favorite beauty product, Valentine’s candy, chick-flick, or love story novel and then everyone gets to leave with a Valentine’s themed gift. What could be better than that?!
Wine party – someone once gave me the idea of having a wine party where everyone brings their favorite wine and then everyone can sample lots of different types and bottles throughout the night. All you really need to pair with it are some good cheeses and maybe a few desserts. You might even find your new favorite wine!
We could all always use an excuse to get together with our friends, so Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do something fun and different!
