Valentine Party… Success!


The “Anti-Valentine” Party was quickly transformed to a true Valentine celebration when I noticed just how much I love pink. Here are a few snaps of the party and my girls! I’ve also included my “secret” Love Bug Punch recipe.

I highly recommend throwing at least one valentine party in your life. It is a fabulous celebration of pink and friends!


Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

Happy Single Awareness Day!

Valentine’s Day is… great. Sometimes. However, when you are single and have no man to sweep you off your feet with a dozen red roses and chocolates, it’s a great excuse for a party!

This year, my roommates and I are hosting our first ever Anti-Valentine’s Day Party. This isn’t going to be some depressing event though where we sit around and eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s while watching The Notebook. No way. This party is going to be legen…. (wait for it)… dary! -I’ve been watching How I Met Your Mother again.


Of course full out obnoxious PINK! I’m talking over the top, all the shades of pink and red you can get your hands on. Maybe even a nice bobble heart handband.

What To Do:

 Gather your best friends, make a tasteful, yet strong, party punch and turn up the music. We have asked guests to bring their favorite valentine treat. For a twist though, make cupcakes with black icing instead of pink!


I’ve been cutting out paper hearts for DAYS. Black, red and pink hearts will create a nice swooping banner for across room. Then I’ve bought way too many rolls of streamers in red and pink. I want the house to be as pink as it can be. After all, just because we are single doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate each other!


Okay, so this may or may not be from the movie Valentine’s Day, but we are totally getting a PINATA! My only hope is that we do this before we start drinking. Anyways, fill up your pinata with fun retro candy or big wax lips!

Here are a few things from Party City that I’m thinking about getting to help get everyone in the “anti”-valentine mood!
