The perfect time to wear your heart on your sleeve, Valentine’s Day is an occasion to appreciate the special people in your life. Showcase your devotion to your nearest and dearest by throwing a Valentine’s Day party.
Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is a time for couples to wine and dine while acknowledging their affection for one another. Today, the holiday has taken on a contemporary twist with the rising popularity of Galentine’s Day (celebrated on February 13th)—a time for women to treasure and take pride in themselves.
No matter what type of party you’re throwing, take advantage of Paperless Post’s streamlined platform for creating, customizing, and sending online invitations that reflect the theme of your Valentine’s Day event with our attractive, heartfelt designs.
Holding a Valentine’s Day party is a freeing experience because there are no customs or traditions to abide by. The only thing to keep in mind is that your event will differ depending on who you’re hosting.
For an adult-only bash you can offer a bar set up with delicious red-toned cocktails, heart-shaped charcuterie boards, and chocolate covered strawberries. For a kid-centric party, set out sweets and treats like frosted cupcakes, popcorn dusted with edible glitter, and cherry-flavored juice.
The agenda can range from a civilized cocktail party to a messy arts and crafts night. The sky's the limit for your Valentine’s Day party.
Choosing a design template for your Valentine’s Day invitation is a personal choice, and largely depends on the theme of your event. If you’re throwing a girls-only soirée, check out our Galentine’s Day Flyers filled with GIFs of pulsing hearts and animated typography to invite your BFFs for an evening of indulgence. If you’re planning on a celebration with the guys, rework one of our sporting event invitations or game night invitations.
We’ve also partnered up with first-class designers like kate spade new york, Hello!Lucky, and John Derian to give you trendy, affection-filled Valentine’s Day invitation templates that you can customize to your liking using our design tools.
As with any party, keep your invitation clear and set out exactly what type of event your guests will be attending.
A simple “Let us shower you with love! Please join us for an evening Valentine’s Day celebration with dinner, drinks, and dancing” or “We’re fond of your friendship, let us spoil you with a Valentine’s Day brunch celebration.” Hint at the agenda for the event while expressing your intent for guests to join you for a party.
Once you’ve given guests a straightforward description of your party, you’ll need to include all the basics: location, date, time, and your RSVP request. Use Blocks to add extra details to your invitation if you want to specify things like a dress code or what to bring (BYOB, potluck, etc.).
You won’t have to wonder if your Valentine’s Day invitation has been received thanks to our guest management system that tracks when an invitation has been opened, who has RSVPed, and the ability to send reminders to guests who you haven’t heard from yet. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
