Anti Valentines Party

Throwing an Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

February 14 is just around the corner, and it’s almost time to boycott one of the most dreaded holidays of the year. Let’s be honest, even if you are perfectly happy and single or perhaps you are in a committed relationship – Valentine’s Day is so notorious for placing pressure on everybody. Almost everyone is badgered to take part in Valentine’s Day activities. If you agree with me then you will definitely enjoy bonding with your friends over an Anti-Valentine’s Day Party.  Planning this kind of party is so exciting and besides if you are going to avoid a holiday, you might as well have fun doing it.

  1. Send out the Invitations

The first step is obvious yet one of the most important steps ever. Ensure that you include all your single friends but do not dismiss even those who are in relationships. The truth is, not every couple jumps at the chance to take part in Valentine’s Day activities. In fact, many of them actually prefer to have a good time in the company of their friends. The duo, however, do not have to kill everyone’s vibe by cuddling and taking part in other romantic overtures. When sending out the invites, you can choose to be creative. There are a number of artsy Anti-Valentines gifs and images that you can forward to your friends as an invite.

Make a Playlist of Songs That’ll Remind You How Being Single Is Awesome

The whole point of the Anti-Valentines Party, is to remind everyone that being single does not suck. This party is not complete without some good music. Some of the biggest ladies in the industry know a thing or two about self-love, independence and confidence. Being single never sounded so good.


Keep your friends entertained with interesting anti-love craft projects. You can cut up some flowers or display some dead roses in a vase to set the Anti-Valentines mood. You can also cut out some broken hearts or even order personalized candy hearts with sarcastic sayings on them and not the cute love quotes.
