Not all people celebrate Valentine’s Day with special dinner for two, a movie date or a romantic getaway somewhere. Some actually celebrate it with fanfare! Valentine’s Day is not all about couples or those who are in love or looking for love but it is also a time to celebrate the day with family and friends as another get-together party.
If you are one of those who wants to throw a party for everyone to enjoy whether are with someone, looking for someone or simply to enjoy the company of great people, then it is just right to plan and execute your Valentine’s Day party without putting a dent on your budget. Here’s how:
Make your own decorations
You do not have to be crafty to be able to make and prepare your own decorations. You just need the basic: paper, scissors, glue, adhesive tape, computer and a printer. It will be nice if you can download printable decors to match your Valentine’s Day theme and cut the out yourself. You can make paper hearts and put them on strings like a bunting. You can also make paper flowers and decorate the tables and chairs with them.
Buy wholesale party kits
Red is always associated to Valentine’s Day to signify love and passion. Why not change the colour motif to dark pink with splashes or red tones? You can buy paper plates, cups and disposable cutleries to mix and match for the occasion. You can buy them plain too in block colours so you can save money. The ones with designs are rather costly so stick with colour blocks.
Use your own cups, plates and cutleries
If you do not want to buy a party kit for the occasion, you can use your own plates, cups and utensils. This way, you get to save money. You can use your creativity by using old jam jars like mason jars as glasses or time to bring out those nice champagne flutes!
Send electronic invites
Send your invites via email to save time and money. You can even create an event in Facebook and invite your family and friends in your upcoming shindig.
Buy wholesale favours
If you are very generous and would really like to give your guests some simple tokens then you can check out the internet for party favors for all occasions that you can buy online. Buying in bulk yields better rate than buying few items.
How you decide to supply your Valentine’s Day party is all up to you especially if your goal is also to have fun while not splurging. Enjoy the merriment!
