We've collected some Valentine Party ideas for just about any age!

One of my strong memories of childhood was having Valentines Day Party at elementary school. Leading up to the day, we would carefully decorate a brown paper lunch sack with heart, scraps of ribbon and doilies.

A trip to the store was necessary to pick out just the perfect paper valentines, and then I would literally agonize of who should receive each one.

The big day came, and everyone in the class would bring a valentine for each child, dropping one in each sack. I couldn't wait to get home and read the pre-printed sentiment on each one, and know that these had been selected special, just for me.

High School brought on a Sadie Hawkins Dance, where the girls would ask the boys to the dance, rather than the other way around. It was a big deal to us then, not only selecting our dress, but selecting which boy we would ask!!

In college we would have Crush Parties. My sorority sisters and I would make a list of all the boys we thought were cute, and we would publish their names in the college newspaper, inviting them to come to our Crush Party. Of course, they all came, and they didn't know which of us had invited them(or did they?). Anyway, it was great fun!

As an adult, a group that I belong to has an annual "husband/significant other" appreciation party around Valentine's Day. We usually do it in conjunction with a wine tasting or plan some other fun event that the guys will really enjoy. This is one of my favorite valentine party ideas.

Whether your party be large or small, valentine party ideas should all come from the heart. Making your friends feel special and showing them how you really feel about them is what it is all about!

Here are some easy party ideas and games for your Valentines Day Celebrations!
