This time for year it’s all about romance and love. And depending on where you are in life you’re either looking really forward to it or you want to avoid it at all costs. So if you’re single or part of a couple you’re either thinking this sucks or is the bees knees. For some, Valentine’s Day is all about hearts and flowers and brings an onslaught of romantic gestures, gift giving and dinners and the pressure is on to make this day extraordinary for their extra special one. While for others today is all about ignoring and avoiding. First and foremost we are all special and deserving of amour not only today but the rest of the year as well.
Valentine’s Day Parties – Why Not Rock Your Singleness!
So if this year you are rocking your singleness why not take the bull by the horns and throw a deserving singles party night. Invite the single people in your life and make the evening all about joy and fun, friendship and affection, laughter and glee. Or why not try a newer trend when it comes Valentine’s Day and parties, the Anti-Valentine’s Day Party otherwise known as the I Hate Valentine’s Day Party. This is definitely not a sympathy soiree but really more of an uplifting fun fete. From the very beginning with the invitation, make your intentions and the party mood crystal clear. As I’m sure you could guess this party is all about opposites so take the “anti” theme and carry throughout. Red becomes black, romantic food becomes comfort food, dreamy decorations become sarcastic and mocking, love songs and music become sad and anti-love songs, you get the picture.
For an “anti” party my friend threw last year she urged the guests to bring pictures, letters and souvenirs of past love and we actually held a ceremony that concluded in the burning of the past. Let me just say it was one of the best parties ever. Really I am telling you I can’t remember a day where I laughed that hard. I often write about parties that were unforgettable and this one truly was.
Valentine’s Day Parties – Fun, laughter and Friends!
Take it from me, don’t let this commercial day of giving bring you down, February 14th is all about love and happiness and you don’t have to be a couple to partake. In honor of today and with thanks to the talented Bryant Oden before you know it you will be getting into the mood with this cute and funny Valentine’s Day song.
Happy Valentine”s Day!
