Red Hot Valentine Theme Party
Red is the color of love, of passion and, of course, Valentine's Day! Planning a red theme Valentine's party is fun and simple! It works for a party at home or a larger event at a rental hall, bar or restaurant.
Valentine's Day Invitations
Invite your guests to have a RED HOT evening by sending them a box of Red Hots, of course! You can send it with a personalized Valentine's Day invitation, or print the information on a label and stick it on the back of the box. Mail this in a small mailing box with a little red tissue.
Try one of these wording options for your Valentine's invite:

Valentine's Day Decorations and Party Supplies
As your guests arrive, greet them with a personalized Valentine's Day theme banner over the door and red gangster hats. Trust me, they will wear them all night! Try a couple of these fun decorating ideas, too:
- Set the mood for your party with red lighting. You can buy red lightbulbs at many stores. Replace lamp bulbs with red, or, if it's in your budget, hire a lighting company to change ceiling lights to red and to add red spotlights on the walls.
- Hang heart whirls around the room for some extra red sparkle.
- Another fun look is to fill the ceiling with balloons. Trust me, it looks great! Use lots of red balloons and silver curling ribbon and let them fly!
- These red lumi-loom balloons will light up your venue. Don't forget to add a love balloon weight!
- Keep your decorations simple with an all-in-one Valentine's Day decorating kit.
Red Valentine's Day Tabletop and Menu
- I would use red roses for this party! Every florist at Valentine's Day will be ready with red roses in crystal or glass vases. (Just be sure to order ahead of time!) Scatter rose petals on the tables, too!
- Scatter red glow light cubes in and around the base of your centerpieces. They will make the tables glow!
- And when you set up the bar, think red again! Serve all your drinks (which should be red!) in red glowing barware. You can get shot glasses, glasses and more all flashing or glowing red. The glowing drink glasses also make a great favor.
- For some added drama, hang a red fringe chandelier above each table. They'll look great above rose-covered tables!
- Keep centerpieces simple with Valentine's Day couple theme centerpiece. Pair the centerpiece with a bunch of red and white lumi-loom balloons.
Valentine's Day Games and Activities
Make up pieces of paper with famous couples written on them. As guests arrive, pin or tape the piece of paper to each of their backs, without letting them see what's written on it. The rules are that they can only ask and answer yes or no questions, to find out who the couple is.
Here are some famous couples from history, books and the screen to get you started:
- Romeo and Juliet
- Cleopatra and Mark Antony
- Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler
- Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy
- Stella & Winston
- Lucy and Ricky Ricardo
- Paris and Helena
- Florida and James Evans
- Lady and the Tramp
- Harry and Sally
- Lancelot and Guinevere
- Robin Hood and Maid Marian
- Tarzan and Jane
