Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to throw a fun & festive party with all of the essentials: red, pink, hearts, sweets, and roses. Why not gather some friends for this Hallmark holiday and use it as an excuse to enjoy winter foods, chocolate & fine wine? Minted’s party shop has a chic collection of Valentine party decorations for effortless style. (Pictured above.) Here are some Valentine party ideas:
Order this adorable gourmet tuxedo box of chocolates to set out in a display, or pick up a selection from your local grocery store. Pair with your favorite wines for a swanky and easy party with other couples or a fabulous Girls’ Night Out! Suggested wine pairings: Michelle Brut, Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut, and the Graham’s Aged Tawny Port. (or browse creme brulee wine pairings for more options!)
2. Heartbreaker Game Night
Just add wine, and games like Charades, Min it to Win It games, and the Game of Things become an instant (and hilarious!) party. Make it Valentine themed with decor, cheesy love music, and love-themed topics.
3. Love is Blind Wine Tasting Soiree
Host a blind wine tasting party for your friends this Valentine’s Day! Cover up the labels on the wine bottles, and assign them a number so everyone can take notes on their favorite wines and compare at the end when the wines are revealed. Minted’s Valentine party decorations collection includes personalized table cards and pretty wine glass tags that would be a simple & sophisticated way to label the wines. If you really wanted to get into the details, you could order custom wine labels for the ultimate in style (wouldn’t that make a fantastic Instagram photo!) It’s always fun to do a blind wine tasting as a theme, with a mix of wines in various price ranges – for example, all California Cabernets. A fun Valentine themed tasting would be to compare Sparkling and Champagne. Then you explain the difference between champagne and sparkling wine and sound like a wine snob.
