Valentine’s Day Parties & Anti-Valentines

Event Themes

Whether you are in a couple or happily single, there are plenty of options for a Valentine's Day party. You can have a silly party, a sexy party, a matchmaking party or a dinner party. It can be a party to bring your Valentine… or meet a Valentine!

Or if you don't like Valentine's – have an anti-Valentine's party. Just turn things up a notch or two, send up the romantic ideals, overdress and ham it up acting out romantic scenes and scripts.

Have a look at the costume and decorating ideas below. For Valentine's gifts, including romantic gifts, see BCL Valentine's Day Gift ideas.

Just for two? See some amazing ideas for romantic dates to create lifelong memories, scenes for proposals, or special celebrations around Australia

Valentine's Party Activites

  • Hold a trivia with questions about those famous romantic movies – Gone with the Wind, Casablanca and so on. Act them out. Or “who said…” Or “what's the next line…”
  • Use one of these movies as your theme and have everyone dress up and act as one of the characters. You might find some of the non-romantic supporting characters the favourite characters.
