A Valentine birthday by its very nature automatically lends itself to be quite the celebration. Seize the day and make your special Birthday Valentine feel extra special. The following ideas are also suitable for a traditional Valentine party.
Set the stage with some fun-lovin’ invites. Entice your guests to attend your Valentine party. Cover candy bars with good quality decorative wrapping paper that lends itself to the Valentine theme. Write out the party details in calligraphy on a piece of pink card stock and glue to the back of the candy bar. Decorate with strands of white pearls and pink silk flowers.
Write out the party details on heart-shaped balloons, attach to a skinny dowel that is wrapped with ribbons, and hand-deliver to your guests.
If you’re wanting to do something out of the ordinary, consider making your Valentine birthday party or traditional Valentine party one with a specific theme. For example, tell everyone to come dressed as trailer trash; this will make for a lot of laughs. If you’re having a couple’s type of celebration, then you might want to consider having everyone dress up as famous couples. Another fun theme to put into your thinking cap is having your guests come dressed as cartoon couples.
Whether you’re decorating for a birthday, a kid’s party, or an adult get together, all of the following ideas on some level are appropriate to help you create an extraordinary Valentine atmosphere.
Decorate any trees in your yard with hearts. String them, as you would garland using fishing line if you want the line to be invisible or use ribbon if you want the line to be part of the decor.
Hang individual hearts or clusters of hearts from the tree branches.
Run streamers through the shrubs in the front yard to add another festive touch.
Sprinkle pink and red rose petals on the sidewalk up to the front door.
Greet everyone with a festive Valentine theme front door. Cover it with red foil wrapping paper and decorate it with white doilies, pink hearts and pink silk flowers.
Hang a Happy Valentine Birthday banner on one of the walls or a Happy Valentine’s Day banner.
Cover tables with white tablecloths and red table runners or vice versa for color. This would also work well using pink. Sprinkle conversation hearts or foil-wrapped chocolate hearts. The hearts will serve two purposes–decorate the tables and provide sweet munchies for your guests.
Hang pink, white and red hearts from the ceiling. Mix in a few cupids as you go along.
Transform your ceiling into Valentine splendor by filling the ceiling with pink, white and red balloons.
Be sure to hang lots of mini white lights throughout the room to add ambiance.
Also, don’t forget to use plenty of candles for that touch of romance.

No Valentine party of any kind is complete without some decadent sweet treats. Here’s a couple of options to consider.

Chocolate dipped strawberries are always a welcome dessert. Another option is to whip up some fresh cream and serve the berries with a nice big dollop!
Pink lemonade is the perfect add-on for Valentine party. Add a sign that a special Love Potion has been added to the lemonade.
These Valentine birthday party ideas are obviously suitable for the traditional party minus the birthday emphasis. Whatever you’re celebrating, enjoy and may you have sweet success!
