Party Ideas for Couples' Valentine's Day
There are so many fun ways to celebrate Valentine's Day! This year, we love the idea of hosting a couples' dinner party! So think about it, ladies...no counting on your man to make dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant, and guys...no hour-long wait just to pay an arm and a leg for the most minor portion of food you've ever seen.
How to host a Valentine's Day Couples' Dinner Party?
The Place Settings:
- Plates: 10.75" White Square Dinner Plates, 9.5" Red Square Dinner Plates, 6.5" Black Square Dinner Plates
- Drinkware: 14 oz. Crystal Cut Plastic Wine Goblets, 8 oz. Square Black Coffee Mug
- Flatware: Shiny Reflections® Silver High-End Plastic Dinner Forks, Knives, and Spoons
- Minis: 5" Square White Mini Sample Plates, 6" Silver Cocktail Spoon
- Linens: Modern Farmhouse Paper Luncheon Napkins, 90" x 156" Black Rectangular Polyester Tablecloth
The Decor: Keep your table decor simple and let your place settings make a statement. Sprinkle rose petals on the table and cluster white candles between place settings. Use an assortment of candle sizes to give your table height.
Set the mood with music. If it's a romantic party, play softer tunes. Try some love-themed rock and roll if you're inviting a noisier bunch. Then, dim the lights and light the candles.
Serve sparkling wine with a strawberry garnish for an added touch of romance! For dessert, offer coffee and mini thumbprint cookies.
Awaken the Sparks of Love, Win your Partner Over Again!
Today is the year when we are all, more than ever, dedicated to our partners, but also the period when we have higher expectations from them. So step outside the box and let your imagination run wild so as not to fall into a pattern and make Valentine's Day special.
For those in a relationship, February 14 is not an ordinary day of the month, and it seems that our feelings are much more pronounced then. Romance wakes up from its winter sleep, and on the streets, we can see numerous couples in love carrying gifts from their chosen ones in their hands. You can hardly find a seat in restaurants or cafes because most want to spend this date with their beloved person.
As we observe this phenomenon year after year, it can be concluded that couples have run out of imagination and spend this holiday in a tried-and-true routine: buying gifts, going out for dinner, or drinking during the day, and flower sellers are certainly most contentedly rubbing their hands because of the market they will make.
Step outside the box and let your imagination run wild so as not to fall into a pattern and make Valentine's Day special. Instead, make your partner fall in love with you all over again because you are innovative, exciting, and creative.
Awaken Your Culinary Skills
Forget expensive restaurants in the company of numerous couples who will occupy them. If you and your partner are gourmets, make an intimate dinner at home. While preparing the meal, you will have a lot of fun, and the atmosphere will be much more relaxed. If you have not yet practiced preparing a meal for your chosen one, this is an ideal opportunity to present yourself in a new role and win additional sympathy.
Turn Off Your Cell Phone
Mobile phones have become a part of our everyday life and an object from which we cannot separate ourselves. Therefore, at least during this day, be unavailable to everyone except for a loved one. In this way, you will devote yourself better to each other, and at the same time, you will not have to compare yourself to other couples who will publish all the details of their celebration on social networks.
Awaken the Child's Spirit, Laughter is Guaranteed
A relationship in older years does not have to mean constant serious and mature behavior. Enjoy at least this day playing board games with your partner. Competition can always be fun, whether it's a game of cards, monopoly, associations, or exciting geography. We forgot about many fun games while growing up, which used to bring us good fun and bursts of laughter.
Do Some Good Deed
Emotions are there to be shared with others and good deeds. Think of a good deed with a loved one that you could implement in your neighborhood, the area where you live, or simply help someone who needs help. Whether it's going shopping for the neighborhood grandma, making houses for abandoned animals, or starting more significant community service events, do it together. You will see for yourself how much your emotions towards your partner will be awakened even more when you achieve noble things.
Do a Challenging Gym Workout Together
If you are a sporty type, you will like this idea very much, especially since you will not have to be in the crowd typical in gyms on other days. On the other hand, if you are not inclined to exercise, going to the gym together is a creative challenge you have set yourself. Even those who are clumsy with exercise equipment can have a good time laughing at themselves. In any case, whichever group you belong to, you have a winning combination.
Watch a Comedy Show
Instead of dinner and a movie, opt for drinks and lots of laughs. We've found that laughter is a great way to get someone to open up to you.
