Valentine’s Day Party Ideas for Adults

What better way to spend Valentine’s Day at home with a party for two? Set a couple of candles and lamps on the floor, choose a romantic movie, and get some popcorn. Going out for dinner at a nice restaurant is lovely but staying at home and enjoying each other’s company has a certain ring to it.

Pool Party

There are times when spending time with your best friends is the best Valentine’s Day celebration ever. If you are not in the mood for a big lovey-dovey date with your partner or are going through a solo phase, invite your friends to a pool party at your house or a hotel and make the day all about friendship.

No one said Valentine’s Day has to be celebrated with just two people. Instead, take that beautiful party dress for a spin at a glamorous party with your better half and your closest friends, and have fun! This day is all about love, so spending time with your friends will definitely be memorable, too.

There is no doubt a marathon of rom-coms will bring your Valentine’s Day that lovey-dovey, cheesy feeling that often comes attached to it — and there is nothing wrong with that.

Valentine’s Day Party Ideas for Kids

If you want to plan a Valentine’s Day party for your kids and their friends, a slumber party can be an excellent option. With the right decoration, food, and games, a slumber party is a guaranteed winner, whether you are planning it for girls or boys!

All Pink Party

If you are planning a Valentine’s Day party for kids who love to dress up and stick to character, think of a color, and show them what they can do to have fun. An all-pink party, for example, will give you the chance to decorate the space with pink balloons, butterflies, and flowers — which is a very Valentine’s Day color, if you ask us.

Crafts Party

Give your kids the chance to play together and get their hands busy with some arts and crafts for Valentine’s Day. Let them create their own Valentine’s cards and let their imaginations run wild with the red and pink paper. Let them say “I love you” their own way with their own DIY gifts.

Piñata Party

If there is one thing kids absolutely love is a piñata, and even a Valentine’s Day party cannot go without one. Gather your kids and their friends around the papier-mâché animal — a heart-shaped piñata will work even better — and have the kids take turns hitting it until the candy falls on the ground.

Paper Heart Hunt

There are so many fun games you can play with your kids on Valentine’s Day we do not even know where to turn our heads to, but this one promises to be a doozy. Cut out some paper hearts — if origami is your forte, go ahead and make it more exciting — and hide them around your home. So, every time a kid finds a heart, he wins a piece of chocolate or some candy. Hide them well to keep the game going!

Valentine’s Day Party Ideas for Kindergarteners

Barbecue Party

Enjoying the outdoors is probably not a difficult task for kindergarteners, as they are discovering new things every day, and nature has become a fundamental part of their development. For Valentine’s Day, take them to your local park or use your backyard to let them play like they were having a barbecue & picnic, like mom and dad. They will love the different elements and have a lovely time on such a love-filled day.

Teepee Party

Whether you choose to do it at home or outside, setting a teepee for your kids’ Valentine’s Day party and their friends will surely cause a stir you were not prepared for. Kids will love the tents, and just have fun with their friends. Do not forget to have them play Valentine’s Day games and share cards among them, and perhaps turn it into a tradition.

Games Party

There are countless games you can have your kindergarteners play on Valentine’s Day that will make them enjoy this day more than everyone. From DIY coloring pages, made with blank sheets of paper with drawings they can color in, to a “Cupid Says” game, where Simon gets replaced with Cupid for a great reason, kindergarteners will show you what love really is.

Valentine’s Day Tree

Move over, Christmas! The Valentine’s Day tree is here, and it came to stay. Turn a fun day at kindergarten into a tree-decorating bash with all the kids chipping in and making their own decorations. Pick up some branches and sticks outside, arrange them in a vase, and you will have the perfect canvas for adorning a Valentine’s Day tree with the kids.

Love Story Time

From all the books you read to your kids, there are probably a few centered around love stories. Turn your Valentine’s Day into a story time party by gathering the little ones in a circle and reenact fantastic fairy tales with one thing in common: love.
