DIY Valentine’s Day party decorations
This Valentine’s Day consider throwing a fun party for all your coupled and single friends. This allows you to share this holiday with all your loved ones. Make the celebration extra special by creating the decorations yourself. All you need is a bit of know-how and some do-it-yourself flair to create the following decor items:
Wreath – Wreaths are an all around great party decoration and they can work well for Valentine’s Day too. Glue faux flowers together in a heart shape for the perfect door hanging. For example, grab a couple dozen fake red roses. Then take the heads off the stem and use a glue stick to attach each bloom to each other to make the heart. Add a piece of felt behind the wreath to reinforce it and it’s ready to be a Valentine’s Day decoration.
Garland – Continuing on with the holiday-inspired decor theme, you can make your own V-Day garland. Bake mini heart-shaped shortbread cookies and decorate each one with royal icing and sprinkles. Use a toothpick to make holes inside the treats and run colorful string through each one. Then hang the cookie garland around your fireplace, chandelier or another focal point in your home.
Drinks – To get the party started, hand your guests a cocktail as they walk into your home. You can mix up pink and red drinks in fun mason jars. Place a custom straw tag inside each one that reads, “Be Mine” or “Happy V-Day.”
Food – Everyone is thinking about sweet treats on Valentine’s Day. Set up your food buffet style for a no-fuss approach to dining. Place colorful ribbon at the base of a cake stand and add a mound of powdered doughnuts on top. You can even make a batch of white chocolate fudge with raspberry swirls and offer them to guests.
Personalized goodie bags
Don’t let your guests leave empty handed. Design personalized gift bags with special treats for all your friends who attended your bash. You can place unscented lotion in small containers and add a couple drops of essential oils like vanilla and lavender to them. You can also bake fresh loaves of banana bread, wrap them up in plastic wrap and tie each one with a bow made out of personalized ribbon. For a special touch, add custom heart-shaped tags to each one.
