Valentine's Day is the traditional holiday of love and when throwing a Valentine's Day party for adults, romance is key to the theme. Creating a mature and elegant decor will contribute to the overall atmosphere of the event.
A romantic way to greet your guests is by having them enter through a heart. Erect a heart-shaped arch at the entranceway of your home, or at the site of the event. Many online party supply retailers offer easy-to-assemble heart-shaped entranceway arches that are available in various designs and color schemes. They are often made of lightweight cardboard or balloons and stand as tall as 8 feet. This Valentine decoration will help create an instant intimate ambiance at the arrival of your guests.
Create a romantic atmosphere with mood lighting. An easy way to add dim romantic lighting and stylish elegance to an adult Valentine's Day event is by using luminescent columns. They are metal, spring-like cylinders that stand about 8 feet tall and 2 feet in circumference, and are wrapped in elastic fabrics. Take a few of these wrapped in red and/or white fabric and string lights through the inside of them to create dim and romantic lighting and a sophisticated Valentine's Day decor.
Add a personal, sassy and mature touch to your Valentine's Day decor by hanging personalized Valentine's banners. Many party suppliers offer custom banner services and will print whatever message you like, sometimes even naughty ones, onto a variety of appropriately themed banner templates. Personalized banners are a popular Valentine party decoration for adults who choose to propose marriage on Valentine's Day, or adults who wish to send romantic messages to their partners or potential mates.
Use floral decorations to enhance the atmosphere of an adult Valentine's party. Most florists offer a variety of Valentine-themed floral arrangements and centerpieces to add to the sophisticated decor of your party. Another idea is to place red, white or pink flowers into decorative bowls of water for a subtle romantic look. The scent of fresh flowers in the air will certainly add to the intimate ambiance.
