A simple and elegant Valentine’s Day party idea. Planning a candlelight dinner with friends and loved ones will amp up everyone’s Valentine’s Day plans! Not only is this ultra-romantic for couples, but it gives singles the chance to spend time with friends without feeling like they’re intruding on the evening.

Hosting a candlelight soiree is appropriate for any client’s Valentine’s Day party. From close friends to a classy office gathering, a tasteful meal among friends relieves some of the pressure from the “Valentine’s Day ideal” (as we like to call it).

A Big Skate

If you’re looking to plan a fun and lively Valentine’s party for your client, look into booking a skating rink. With this activity, your clients get to spend time with their partners in an out of the ordinary environment. Whether your clients are good at skating or not, they’ll definitely enjoy gliding around with their partner, hand-in-hand! And don’t forget to book that photographer – this is the perfect opportunity for couples to get some super cute candid photos.

A String Quartet Mixer

Planning a Valentine’s Day party can be challenging if you’re trying to meet high expectations. Give couples a night to remember with a casual and romantic evening out! Plan a mixer with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres so couples can enjoy conversation with their SO and get to know new people. To keep it romantic, hire a string quartet to play soft background music to accompany the sweet conversations.

And you never know, it might just be the atmosphere where someone will propose

Gal Pal Glam Night

For those who aren’t in a relationship come Valentine’s Day, it’s still important to spend time with your loved ones! Organize a gal pal event for friends to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Tell the girls to get glammed up and plan a fancy dinner with drinks. It’s important to appreciate our friends, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do so. For the girl who’s in a long-distance relationship to the girl who just doesn’t want a partner, everyone loves the chance to spend time with their best friends!

A Chocolate Trade

You can go about this one multiple ways, but the idea behind a chocolate trade is this: invite guests for a Valentine’s Day party where they bring a selection of chocolates, and trade off with someone else! In the end, everyone ends up with a delicious box of chocolates – who doesn’t like that?

For a larger Valentine’s Day event, use the Secret Santa premise. Everyone brings a box of chocolates (wrapped) and each person gets to select the box of their choice. Then, unwrap and enjoy!

If you want to make your event more intimate, ask couples to select a box of chocolates for their partner and trade at the party. It can be their all-time favorite or something new to try, either way it’s an exciting surprise for your guests!

A Wine Tasting
