Whether it’s a Galentine’s or Valentine’s party, my top 10 tips will help you create the coyest and romantic atmosphere. Fear not, you don’t have to go all out cheesy with balloons and rose petals on the bed! Here are a few original ideas for your Valentine’s day party.
ROSE PETAL BISCUITS

Rose Petal Biscuits an easy Valentine’s Day hack. You can make these biscuits or you could just buy plain heart shaped biscuits and just do the pink icing dipping. This is great to make with your kids from the very beginning or even just the messy part.
A POCKET FULL OF ROSES
Your everyday tumbler glasses will work for this. Add a little bit of water and place the rose heads inside. The more the rose fills the glass, the better.
50 SHADES OF PINK
A multi-tonal pink table is a great idea. Start off with the lighter colours, then add the darker pinks on top.
One sure way to avoid cheesy is to go down the vintage root. Pick or buy some wild flowers and display them in a hand-painted jam jar. Acrylic paint works best for this.
This is so simple, yet so effective. All you need is some old branches, collected in the park, or bought at a local flower shop and a few heart shaped objects. If you don’t want to buy the wool ones, you can cut pink and red roses out of paper and hang them with thread.
A nice takeaway for your guests is a bag full of marshmallows, heart shaped Haribo, milk bottles and other pink or red sweeties.
LIGHT UP MY LOVE HEART
I love this idea! You can use a jar, if you don’t have candle holders like these ones. Be generous with the love hearts!
Why not write each one of your guests a little love letter and use it as a place setting? The rose is a very special touch – everyone appreciates getting one on Valentine’s day!
Whether it’s pink lemonade, pink champagne or a pitcher of Cosmopolitan, a pink drink is a great way to quench your guest’s thirst, whilst sticking to the theme of the night. Pink for Galentine’s or Valentine’s is always a good idea.
Rose petals are traditionally sprinkled over bedspreads, but why not add them to a drink? You can also use them to garnish your dishes, if you’re cooking.
