Set the Scene Anti-Valentine’s Party Ideas
Colour, colour everywhere! Give your party-goers a welcome respite from ‘red and white’, go for purple and black or a swanky turquoise and black for a girls poker night in! Create charming flags or bunting from e-card postcards (quirky messages paired with vintage illustrations) or use pictures of famous divorced couples. Set aside a games area with broken heart darts, axe the ex and a heart piñata as the piece de resistance! All games have great visual impact and are easily made by hand leaving you to be as cheeky or as demure with them as you please. Ask your Butler in the Buff to assist with your anti-Valentine’s party games! (See games feature at the end of the blog)
Great Anti Valentine’s Day Food
Divine Anti Valentines Dinner Party
After a bleak January of strict diet regimes everyone deserves delectable dishes Feb 14. Go for garlic and fun, sticky foods in defiance of the tidy little dinner dates couples flock to. Start with sticky wings and garlic bread then indulge in this sumptuous Goats cheese and Pesto Mac with a fresh caramelised red cabbage salad. Finish with a layered chocolate mousse.
Debauched Anti Valentines Do
Its messy heart shaped jell-o shooters and a swift kick to that little cupids behind. Speaking of behinds…spice up your anti-valentines party with one or two of our fabulous butler behinds to serve drinks and mix a few anti-V cocktails! No champagne and chocolates allowed! Instead offer bloody-Marys, espresso martinis and plenty of cheesy, garlic dips like artichoke and crab or spinach dip. Great with dark (black) tortillas or toasted baguette fingers.
