Whether you love it or not, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And if you’re planning a special Valentine’s Day event this year, we’re here to tell you how you can help it go off with a bang. 

Get ready for February 14th with these 6 ways to spice up your Valentine’s Day.

1. Create A Theme

The first thing you must do for your Valentine’s Day event is create a theme. Whether you’re hosting a couple’s event, a single’s night or just a fun get-together, having a theme can add some excitement to the occasion. Some great theme ideas include:
  • An Evening in Paris
  • Casino Royale
  • Masquerade Ball
  • A Night at the Movies
  • Beach party

You can incorporate your theme through your invitations, your decor and more to help create a special evening that will be one to remember.

2. Set A Dress Code

Give your event a little edge by setting a dress code. From costumes to black tie or cocktail dresses, this is a great opportunity to encourage your guests to dress to impress.

3. Add Some Colour To Your Decor

Make your event one to remember by giving it 100% with your decor. Create some mood lighting with a Chillizone LED light, decorate your tables and add some special touches like flowers and centerpieces to ensure your event is next-level.

Don’t forget to hire tables and seating options for all of your guests, and consider creating different areas for guests to be able to mix and relax.

4. Play Some Games

Games are ideal for Valentine’s Day icebreakers, helping to bring people together while adding some fun to the festivities. Check out some Valentine’s Day game ideas for people of all ages to give you some inspiration.

5. Set Up A DIY Photo Booth

You can’t beat a photo booth for helping people to capture memories from your event. While you could hire a photo booth, you could also have some fun creating a DIY version.

A DIY photo booth is easy to set up, simply get some Valentine’s Day-themed props, a Polaroid camera and a fun background or flower wall and encourage your guests to snap away!

6. Set The Mood With Music

Finally, don’t forget to set the mood with music. Create a playlist that suits the theme of your event or hire some musicians or a DJ to entertain your guests. Mix things up with a mix of fast-paced tunes and some slow dance favourites, creating moments to bring people together on the dance floor throughout the evening. 


Whether it’s a general social event, dance, a matchmaking night or just a fun celebration with friends, there are plenty of things you can do to make your Valentine’s Day event extra special.
