The main colors you would want to use for Valentine’s Day decorations would be reds, pinks, and whites. This includes lots of balloons and streamers in this color scheme. Put heart-printed tablecovers on your tables, red/pink plates and utensils, small hearts under each cup, roll the napkins and tie with decorative ribbon, and add a special rose on each plate. It's also nice to add any suitable centerpiece for the table, could be a teddy bear with a heart, pots with roses, candies, lollipops, etc. For that extra touch, put little jars with candles on tables and all around the party area (you could also use LED candles if you don't want to have fire around).

Here are some Valentines ideas and activities for your party:
* How Much Love is in the Jar: Put lots of candy hearts in a jar (count them before you close the lid), and ask your guests to guess how many hearts are in the jar. The closest one to guess correctly - gets the jar as a gift to take home. You could also call this "How many Kisses in the Jar?" and fill the jar with Hershey kisses.
* Minute-to-Win-it Heart-a-Stack: Guests have 60 seconds to stack as many conversation candy hearts on top of eachother. When the minute is over, whoever has the highest stack wins!
* Valentine Hearts: This is a great activity for kids, just print out lots of hearts on red construction paper and hide them all over the house. Tell the kids they need to look for as many hearts as they can. The kid who finds the most hearts wins a small prize.
Remember to set the mood with romantic and/or jazzy love tunes!
