A barrel of monkeys could be lots of fun. A set of love birds would cause quite a stir. A dozen pairs of kissing fish might suffice as unusual door prizes but there are ways to go wild without bringing the tropical rainforest into your nice, dry home through amazing Valentine’s Day party themes.

Valentine’s Day party themes are easy to concoct. And there’s no need to rent a costly facility to secure an appropriate space. You can throw a bash at home. It can be a party for a crowd of friends or a very private party for two. Perhaps it’s time for a Valentine’s Day party in costume: Tarzan and Jane, Romeo and Juliet, Tina Turner and Mick Jagger very wild indeed.

Home-based parties rule

A party held at home is easy to plan. Take a quick survey of things you have at home that lend color, texture, or atmosphere. A Valentine’s Day party color is traditionally red and white. Think in color. Consider wearing that day’s apparel in shades of red with accents of white or, vice versa. Perhaps serve some luscious chocolate strawberries. It is easy to add a few home decorating accents with a Valentine’s Day theme.

What can you use to make some interesting decorations? Pin or tape some white paper hearts upon a red backing to use as a tablecloth. Cover with clear plastic. Make a red swag over a doorway using a red silk bed sheet edged with white paper-doily hearts. Tie back the swag with red and white ribbons or bows. Many useful things can be found at home.

Show them the path with fun faux footprints

Valentine's Day Party themes
One of the fun ways to direct a group of friends or your lover to your party is to make paper heart shapes and use them like footprints. This is a Valentine’s Day party idea that is out of the ordinary and lends a sense of mystery to following the trail.

The faux footprints should run along the floor along a hallway or up a sidewalk leading to your front door. They are easy to make from basic crafts supplies and can be removed in a flash when you are finished with your Valentine’s Day party festivities.

Instructions: Fold in half a stack of red paper. Cut along the centerfold a shape resembling half-a-heart. When unfolded, the shape resembles a complete heart. You can further add attractive detailing with special scrapbooking scissors that make a decorative edge-scalloped, zigzagged, waved, or fringed. Place hearts along the walkway, in a footsteps pattern.

Use red in baking and cooking

Valentine's Day Party food
Don’t be afraid to experiment with food colorings as the date of your Valentine’s Day party draws near. Experts at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) offer a multitude of facts about food colorings and additives. Those used in making home-cooked dishes and bakery appear more colorful and appetizing are considered safe.

Many colors are certified. The specific color oftentimes is listed among ingredients as a heads-up to anyone with food sensitivities. Valentine’s Day parties cry out for the use of red food coloring. Consider what you like to cook or bake. Perhaps invest in some kitchen wares such as heart-shaped cake pans or cookie cutters resembling hearts or cupids.

When using red food coloring you can create different imaginative ways to have more fun. Save time by preparing well ahead some of the desserts and appetizers you will serve at your party. Red food coloring can brighten white cake mix and frosting when you mix it. Use some red to make red mashed potatoes. Do a little experimenting ahead of time to see what will work best when it’s time for your party.
