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.

Attire:

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!

Decorations:

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!

Games:

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!
