Kids Valentines Party Ideas & Decorations

Decorating for a Valentine's Day party couldn't be easier...the color of the day is RED! It's impossible to have to much red at a Valentine's Day party! Throw in some pink and white for fun and that's all the color you need.

  • Purchase Valentine's Day themed party supplies such as red plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths.
  • Decorate with red, white and pink balloons and streamers. Be sure to have a few heart shaped balloons.
  • Centerpieces can be as simple as boxes of heart shaped chocolates and balloons. Scatter Conversation candy (the candy with the messages that say "Be Mine", "Hug Me") on the table and your done.
  • Cut out hearts of varying sizes from red construction paper and hang from the ceiling or tape to the walls. Feel free to write versus' such as "Be My Valentine", "I Love You", "Sweetheart", etc. on the hearts.

My Heart
