According to party planning website Passion for Parties, there are many ideas individuals can incorporate into a Valentine's Day party for adults, and these ideas mostly focus around decorations, music, games, food and drinks. A suggested dress code can also add to a party. Guests can come dressed in red, white or pink to add some holiday flair.
Decorations are a vital part of any holiday-themed party. White Christmas lights or heart string lights work great paired with dim lighting to serve up a gentle, romantic ambiance. Different types of candles, including tea lights, votive candles or floating heart candles in water, can all add to the feel of a Valentine's Day party. Rose petals can also be used to great effect, sprinkled around the room or around candles and other decorations. Passion for Parties suggests Valentine-themed games, such as Valentine's Pictionary or the Newlywed Game. Foods such as chocolate fondue, chocolate-covered strawberries or heart-shaped brownies or cupcakes are all great choices to serve. Cocktails such as the Cosmopolitan (vodka, triple sec, lime juice and cranberry juice) or the chocolate-covered cherry (Amaretto, Kahlua and hot chocolate, topped with whipped cream and a cherry) are popular cocktails for a Valentine's Day party. A music playlist of love songs is also a good choice, as long as there are no songs relating to heartbreak.
