Planning a stylish Valentine’s Day party for adults
Keep your decorations simple and sophisticated
Valentine’s Day has a reputation for being a cheap and tacky holiday but it doesn’t have to be! There are plenty of ways to celebrate February the 14th in style as long as you stick to one golden rule: keep your decorations simple.
Reign yourself in to avoid going OTT – a few carefully placed decorations will look much more stylish. The latest trend in the party industry is to scatter balloons in a corner of the room, or to blow them up halfway and scatter them across chairs and tables. This will look ultra stylish and most importantly, very classy.
Mix and match red and pink with blocks of white
Red and pink is the obvious choice of colour scheme for a Valentine’s Day party but if you overdo it, it can get a little OTT. That’s why we’d recommend mixing and matching bolder red and pink decorations like these with blocks of white to break up the colours.
It’ll still look cute and romantic but it’ll look much, much classier than a pure red colour scheme. Perfect for a Valentine’s Day party for adults who like the day but don’t want to celebrate it in all its garish glory!
Add rose petals and a couple of hints of gold
What could be more romantic than scattered rose petals? Red rose petal confetti like this will look lovely scattered across your tables or along your mantelpiece – a simple Valentine’s Day party idea that’s guaranteed to look elegant and classy!
