Valentine's Day is one of the most divisive days of the year. While couples typically celebrate this date as a time to express their love for their other half, those who are single often dread the heart-filled holiday. This year, instead of moping at home as your partnered pals enjoy romantic candlelit dinners, throw a Valentine's Day party for you and your single friends.
This gathering truly benefits from the idea "the more the merrier," so encourage your friends to bring along other unattached pals from outside your social circle. With a flexible guest list, however, you'll want to make sure to have extra food, custom party favors and supplies on hand.
When decorating the party space, remember that the shindig is for those without significant others, so that they can gather and enjoy each other's company – it is not an anti-Valentine's Day party. Don't go overboard with black streamers or broken heart decals. Dress the room as you see fit, whether that be with twinkly Christmas lights or a few red balloons.
Whether you're in a relationship or not, everybody loves Valentine's Day candy, so stock up on delicious sweet treats like boxes of chocolate and heart-shaped lollipops.
With the party space prepared, you'll be ready to have a fantastic February 14th – guaranteed!
