Valentine’s Day can be stressful as you try to dream up an idea to top the surprises you’ve
thrown for your loved one in previous years. If you’re having trouble dreaming up a
spectacular Valentine’s treat, consider throwing a passionate, romantic Valentine’s Ball using
marquee hire for Valentine’s Day.
A Valentine’s Ball is the perfect way to celebrate, and you can invite all your friends,
whether they want to party with their partners or mingle with the singles. Here are some tops
tips for a decadent evening.
Choose Your Marquee
Whether you want a fun and flirty Valentine, or something more romantic and sophisticated,
there is a marquee to suit your needs. A flirty pink gazebo in your back garden or at a special
venue is just the thing to get those eyelashes fluttering, or perhaps you want a fully enclosed
marquee so you can party away from prying eyes.
February 14th is still a chilly time of year, but with a range of options such as hard wood
flooring and heaters your guests will be able to party in their finest party gear – without
worrying about getting frostbite!
Set the Tone
Now for the fun part – decorating your marquee so it’s fit for a Valentine’s Ball. If fun and
flirty is your thing, then playful pinks are the way to go, but if you want your event to ooze
passion and romance then classic red is the ultimate option.
A twinkly night sky is the perfect backdrop, while the buffet table can be sprinkled with red hearts and laid with red blooms. Make sure you include a bar and a chillout area so couples have a place to cosy up and
whisper sweet nothings to each other.
Food and Drink
Serve your guests with a welcome drink and canapés when they arrive, then decide whether
you want to offer a proper sit down meal, or serve a buffet with finger food so your guests
can mingle freely while they eat.
For the bar, champagne is the drink of choice, which can be served in tall flutes or mixed into
romantic cocktails. Don’t forget to include a few non-alcoholic options for teetotallers and
drivers. For a decadent touch, serve a chocolate fountain as a tasty centrepiece.
Music is the Food of Love
Finally, music is the perfect way to set the tone of your party. For a romantic touch, hire a
harpist or string quartet, or opt for some good old-fashioned crooning à la Frank Sinatra.
