A Valentine-themed birthday bash is a wonderful party to consider if your child has a February birthday. I had so much fun brainstorming some fun ideas for this party theme and I’m so happy to share them with you. Start by using heart-shaped tissue honeycombs to flank the doorway of the party entrance, setting the tone for the festivities. Greet your guests with heart shaped balloons next to a Valentine’s Bracelet Station table. Have an area on the porch or entrway where kids can design their own heart bracelets (or crowns for boys). It’s a fun and imaginative activity that doubles as a charming accessory for the party.
Set the Party Table
Drape the party tables in a charming block print tablecloth, creating a pretty foundation for the heart-themed tableware that adds a touch of whimsy and elegance to each place setting. To add a personal touch, consider placing conversation heart candies at each place setting. Decorate the table with florals and balloons in pink and red hues.
To set the stage, picture adorable pink Chiavari chairs for kids. These petite chairs, perfect for ages 2-6, add a touch of elegance to the celebration, ensuring that every little guest has a comfortable and stylish seat.
Valentine Inspired Party Menu
Now, let’s talk about the menu – a delightful array of Valentine-inspired treats. Mini heart-shaped sandwiches, cupid-approved fruit skewers, and heart-shaped cookies with pink icing will steal the spotlight. For sipping, consider “cupid milkshakes” which is simply a scoop of strawberry ice cream, topped with milk, whipped cream. Serve in charming cups to complete the refreshment lineup.
Heartwarming Party Games
Every memorable party needs engaging games. Hang a heart-shaped piñata filled with candies and small toys, bringing laughter and excitement to the celebration. Add to the fun with a cornhole game of “Cupid’s Arrow Toss,” where little ones aim to land their arrows (beanbags) into targets.
No birthday celebration is complete without a show-stopping cake. A heart-shaped cake or cookie cake, or even a cupcake station for decorating is perfect for kids.
Additional fun party games (which are especially appropriate for winter weather) include:
Heart Hunt Game: Organize a heart hunt throughout the party space. Hide heart-shaped cutouts or stickers and challenge the little ones to find as many as they can. Award small prizes to the most successful heart hunters.
Musical Hearts Game: Play a musical chairs variation called “Musical Hearts.” Place heart-shaped cutouts on the floor, and when the music stops, kids must find a heart to stand on. Remove one heart each round until one lucky winner remains.
As for the birthday girl, let her shine in a special Valentine’s Day birthday outfit. A cute heart-themed dress, fun shoes, and fun accessories, that will make her feel like the queen of hearts for the day.
With these thoughtful touches, your Valentine-themed birthday bash is sure to create enchanting memories for your little one and guests alike. I’ve linked all the items you need for the party below. Happy party planning!
