Get Ready for Valentine’s Day!

Posted on February 09, 2015 by Fancy Dress Ball

Get Ready for Valentine's Day

The cards have been in the shops since Christmas, so you could be forgiven for getting a bit complacent about it – but you won’t be forgiven if you actually forget about it! This Saturday is 14th February – Valentine’s Day!

Don’t panic though; Fancy Dress Ball has got your back on this one!

The tradition is to buy a lady a dozen red roses and take her out for a hugely overpriced dinner, in a crowded restaurant where you sit surrounded by other couples, under immense pressure to be romantic and have a good time. We don’t think any of that is very romantic though, or much fun.

We think a much better idea would be to dress up in Valentine’s fancy dress and woo your lover with something a bit different. We love the idea of dressing up as a gangster, from the 1929 St Valentine’s DayMassacre.

Another great idea is to have matching his ‘n’ hers costumes – possibly the one night of the year when this is acceptable! How about being Superman and Supergirl, or a caveman and a cavewoman?

These days lots of places are throwing fancy dress parties for Valentine’s Day – they’ve realised that people would rather go out and have fun than be crowded into a restaurant and pay twice the usual price for a meal.

If you can’t find a Valentine’s fancy dress party locally, why not organise one yourself? There’s still time, and we bet loads of your friends would love to come along.  Why not throw a “red” party where the only rule is that everyone must be in red, or dressed as a red character? This can be great fun as people try to decide what to dress up as.

If you’re single, or have a lot of single friends, you could always throw a matchmaking party – where only single people are allowed to go, and the host or a group of people act as matchmaker for their friends.

For party refreshments, you’ll probably want to go with a red theme! We love this super easy recipe for champagne punch. For food, a great idea is to cut sandwiches into heart shapes. This can work well for anything  really – even shop bought cookies!

If you’re really looking to go all-out with your party, why not take a look at this fab video for some top pointers?

If you do still want to send flowers to that special someone, roses are traditional but not necessarily necessary! We love the boquets in this article; they’re classically beautiful without being stereotypical.

 

Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day, whatever you do… though obviously, your Valentine’s Day will be better in fancy dress!
