Valentine’s Day is not just for couples. It’s a day to express your love to those around you. If you’re not involved with someone special consider throwing a singles mixer. It’s a great way for singles to meet other people and a great way to not spend this day alone wallowing in your sorrows.
Decorate using traditional elements like hearts of all sizes, cupids and arrows in colors like red, pink and white. If you prefer something more modern and less vintage, add some purple and black to your scheme. Scatter rose petals around your tables where your drinks will be served for a special touch. A great centerpiece that will be perfect on your drink table is the Love Potion Happy Hour arrangement by 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. This fun and flirty arrangement of red roses and pink calcynia in an oversized martini glass is not only the perfect decoration but also a great conversation piece. Compliment the Love Potion Happy Hour arrangement with strawberry martinis and cosmopolitans.
Make mingling easy amongst your guest by serving finger foods instead of a large meal. Heart shaped sandwiches make a whimsical treat especially when paired with a Bee Mine Cookie Flower Pot with cookies in the shapes of heart flowers and bumble bees from Cheryls.com. But as we all know, the best aphrodisiac is chocolate so make sure you have some Fannie May Love & Romance Chocolate Strawberries from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. These strawberries are all hand dipped in decadent dark chocolate, creamy white chocolate and (gasp!) pink champagne-infused chocolate sprinkled in gold and clear sugar. For the guys at your party who may not like all the frou frou-ness of Valentine’s Day have a Happy VDay Tin & Tower from The Popcorn Factory or two on hand. This snack tin comes with gourmet premium popcorn in four great flavors (Cheese, White Cheddar, Sour Green Apple Kettle, and S’mores), chocolate covered peanuts and so much more.
On the other hand if you happen to be single and are invited to a singles mixer this Valentine’s Day, don’t show up empty handed. Rule of thumb dictates that you take your hostess a gift regardless of the occasion. For moments like this, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has the perfect solution with the Lucky in Love arrangement. This arrangement comes in a handcrafted basket with fresh white carnations, red roses, statice and wax flowers with two adorable white puppies. If the hostess happens to be the one your crushing on, impress her with Godiva Valentine’s Day 19 piece Ballotin from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM which will definitely show her how you truly feel.
