Planning a cute Valentine’s Day party
Setting up your venue
Whether you’re throwing a Valentine’s Day disco for kids or a fun singles’ night for adults, the first thing you need to do is set up your venue.
We’d recommend choosing a red and pink colour scheme (of course) and balancing it out with hints of white to make your Valentine’s party theme look stylish and classy rather than garish.
Laying your tables
If you’re having a buffet at your Valentine’s party, lay your tables with some cute Valentine’s Day tableware like this.
Choose a selection of plates, cups, napkins, red cutlery and table accessories and if you’re expecting lots of party guests, pick up a party pack like this that includes absolutely everything you need for a certain amount of guests.
