Valentine’s Day Party and Entertainment Ideas

People seem to have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day itself, so make sure you’re up to speed on how to revel in cupid’s very own day of love with our Valentine's Day party and entertainment ideas.

If you’re hosting your very own Valentine’s Day party you’re in luck or simply wanting to spoil your loved one. Both online and high street stores (think Not on the High Street and Paperchase), are well ahead of the decoration game when it comes to filling your party with love hearts, banners and twinkling lights.

For food inspiration, think of stereotypical romantic European countries such as Paris and Italy for their luscious cuisine. Or try out aphrodisiacs as part of your Valentine’s Day menu by including ingredients such as asparagus, oysters, chillies and even vanilla. The sweeter things in life like chocolate and Champagne are also a sure fire way to add finesse to an event.

If music really is the food of love like good ol’ William Shakespeare said so, you can’t go wrong by creating a romantic atmosphere with great music. For parties of all sizes and styles, live music is guaranteed to set the loving or playful mood for all. Live jazz and swing bands are a great idea to ensure your guests emotions are stirred with love with acts such as Carole Westwood and Blue Harlem playing traditional, smooth jazz songs from the greats such as Ella Fitzgerald.

If it’s a Valentine’s Day dinner dance that you’re hosting, get your guests up and dancing with slick performances from big bands like The Barton Band and the soul/funk band Fabulations. Looking for something more intimate? Classical musicians are always a perfect choice. Mike Georgiades plays romantic covers to passionate flamenco vibes on his classical guitar, guaranteed to make your function ooze ingenuity and romance.
