Card Making Station
Leave some paper, markers, and decorative items on a table for your guests to make Valentine’s Day cards. They can give these cards to their loved ones, other party guests, or you can arrange for them to be sent to a local hospital or nursing home. Spread some love through creativity!
If you have enough board games at home, set them up and host a game night over Valentine’s Day weekend. While you should have a couple of games that involve more than 2 players, including some 1-on-1 games, you can nurture more personal conversations. Or better yet, start a Bunco group and let the laughter and fun begin and start a monthly Bunco group.
Host a movie night with popcorn, movie theater snacks. Invite your guests to show up in pajamas, and drop some pillows and blankets on the floor to create a slumber party vibe. Take some movie suggestions from your friends – they may know of a great film that you’ve never even heard of!
Indulge in some ice cream at your party with a create-your-own sundae bar. Include traditional flavors, fun toppings, and enough disposable bowls for several servings. Pour the toppings into a bowl, each with their own spoons for your guests to serve themselves.
Cupcake And Sweet Treats Fun Swap
Have your friends come over for some cupcake and sweet treat fun swap. Have each of your friends bring over a dozen or two of their very favorite Valentine’s Day cupcakes, cookies, brownies or sweet treats or better yet, have them bring the recipes and have a massive baking night. At the end of the night, everyone can take home a sampling of each of the treats. It’s a win-win any way you look at it!
Photo Booth Props
There is nothing that is more fun than a Photo Booth and it’s easier to create than you think! Could one of your walls serve as a great backdrop for Instagram photos? Set up a “photo booth” near that wall by setting up a table with photo booth props. You can buy a pack of props off of Amazon, create your own quirky signs, or even add a large stuffed animal for guests to pose with for photos.
Think back to the fun you had back in elementary school when the teacher would put a box filled with crafting treasures on the table and let you create anything you wanted! Now you can recreate that magic. With a few simple items from the Dollar Store such as foam hearts, plants, photos frames, plain vases, the possibilities are endless of what your friends can make while at the same time, creating memories that will last long after Craft Night is over.
At-Home Spa Night
Valentine’s day is all about love, and that includes self-love! Invite your friends over for a night of face masks, manicures, and self-indulgence. If you have a friend who sells self-care products, this is a great opportunity for them to let people sample their products – they may even make a sale! Paint and Sip
Cafés, art studios, and other small establishments sometimes host “paint and sip” nights. At these events, guests are served wine while they complete a painting project. Arrange to go to one of these events with your friends, and see who can come closest to the original painting! Alternatively, you can host your own paint and sip event with some blank canvases, acrylic paints, disposable paint palettes, and your favorite drinks.
