BEST VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY IDEAS

Our hearts are full of love for Valentine's Day and all of the parties, decorations, and sweets that come with it. Since the loveliest holiday of all is almost here, we want to take a look back and share our top favorite Valentine's Day party themes, must-haves, and decorations from years past. So sit back, relax, and be prepared to fall head-over-heels for LOTS of pink and red!

Valentine's Day balloon bouquet

 

Bonjour Fête pink and red Valentine's Day balloon bouquet

V-Day and balloons are a match made in heaven. That's why we love creating sensational Valentine's Day balloon bouquets each year! This beauty in particular is one of our favorites. 

You can never go wrong with a few heart-shaped balloons mixed with classic red and pink latex balloons. Balloon bouquets like this make perfect sweetheart gifts for the special someone in your life, or stunning decor for a Valentine's Day party! 

Valentine's Day mantle decorations

You've heard of Christmas mantles, but can we make Valentine's Day mantles a thing? We can't get over how sweet and simplistic this heart-adorned mantle is! Just further proof that all you need is love... and a few heart-shaped balloons to make your V-Day special.

Rainbow Valentine's Day decorations

Of course we love the traditional Valentine's Day colors, but we also love keeping things fresh. As you can tell, we had tons of fun decorating our stores with bursts of heart rainbow details a couple years back. We'll always have a soft spot for colorful Valentine's Day decorations, so we make sure we bring a few pieces every year for our fellow rainbow lovers. One of our faves this time around is this colorful felt heart garland.

Another fabulous way to incorporate color is with tableware. This past rainbow shelfie showcases all the heavenly hues you can bring to your Valentine's Day table. The options are truly endless!

Kissing booth Valentine's Day decor

Oh la la! We're still obsessing over this petite Valentine's Day kissing booth from a couple years back. Nothing says love month like a couple of bisous. We also included a stunning pink cake topped with candy hearts and pretty pink lips. Cake toppers and food picks are always a good idea, especially on tasty Valentine's Day treats or other party foods that could use a little extra smooch!

Red and black themed Valentine's Day party

Seriously though, the combo of red and black for Valentine's Day decor is stunning! Perfect for those host/hostesses that want to keep things a little spicy. 

Classic Valentine's Day heart themed tableware

Another favorite from years past is this vintage Valentine's Day table setup. We layered the red plates and utensils with striped napkins and straws. Mixing patterns and prints is our go-to for styling up any simple party table.

Pink balloon garland for Valentine's Day party decor

We're still dreaming about this gorgeous oversized balloon garland. We layered all the pretty pink pastel tones of the holiday to make the cutest party backdrop, perfect for a V-Day photo booth! And to add a little more flair, we draped this pink fan garland alongside. We're suckers for a good garland because they make the easiest decoration for any kind of party.

If you're like us, you want to spoil them with all the Valentine's Day presents and goodies. We loved getting to throw this Valentine card exchange for our little ones a couple years ago! (They were so little!) We set the kids table with Valentine's Day party favors and matching letter backpacks to store cards and candy in. 

This year, we're so excited about these adorable heart shaped rattan bags! Fill them with all kinds of treats and toys, and they make the perfect gift for your kids to open on Valentine's Day!
