As I think about Valentine's day, I'm reminded that you can have a lot of fun with these two colors, Pink and Red, without being so literal with the holiday. So let's put up the hearts and mushy stuff...let's leave that for the kids. And, let's take this upscale birthday party, and translate it into a great Valentine's day mixer.
First, think about the metaphor? Do you like shoes? Dresses? Lingerie? Ties? Jewelry? Seek to use that as the way to tell the story of the event! Before you ask, yes, your event is a story! It will be a story...and it ultimately will become a memory! I used red shoes...thinking about what one might find in a women's wardrobe or house. So I also used pink coffee books, martini glasses, shoe boxes, and bags filled with tissue paper as props!
For the women who just want to mix with friends, in a season that might make you feel lonely...think about celebrating yourself and inviting friends to ditch the heart shaped cards, and enjoy the beauty of the season of love.
Celebrate the possibility of love. Celebrate your passion. Celebrate your friendships!
