Tips for Preparing a Perfect Valentine Party

Aug 17, 2007
Glamour is super with the teeners so is Valentines day. Make the best use of your turn to give a party in a very glamorous valentine way.

Sally was delighted that her turn to entertain "the club" fell near Valentine's Day because "it's so easy to give a party with a valentine theme." Because glamour is super with the teeners, Sally was given free reign to make her party as pretty as possible.

Her invitations were in the form of valentines made by cutting bright red construction paper four by six inches and folding down the middle to make a leaflet. On the outside of each folder she sketched a roguish little face and framed it with lacy bits cut from paper doilies. Of course, if she had preferred she could have cut faces from old magazines. The inside of the folder carried the following invitation:
Will you be my Valentine?
on Friday next For a six o'clock supper?
805 Blunt Street.

Arriving guests soon decided that Dan Cupid must have planned and executed the decorations. Mirrors displayed bright red hearts. In some cases they formed frames; on others various designs. Scotch tape was used to stick them to the mirrors. If you have never tried this idea you will be surprised at its effectiveness. Red hearts also decorated the drapes, and red paper covers over each lamp shade cast a rosy glow over the entire surroundings
.
For the dining table a paper valentine cloth, bought at the dime store, was perfect. The centerpiece looked like a tree of tiny red hearts. Sally had dipped several bare barberry branches in white paint. Each little thorn was tipped with a bright red gumdrop. Sally at the time of her party was unable to get the small red gumdrops so she cut the larger ones into small pieces.

Each place card was a small white envelope bearing the guest's name and decorated with tiny red paper hearts. Regardless of the curiosity of the guests as to the contents of the envelopes Sally insisted that they wait until they had finished eating before opening them.

The supper itself was a valentine. Each plate contained one large valentine which nearly filled the plate. The effect was most intriguing. On closer inspection it was discovered that the face of each valentine was half a hard-boiled egg with the white rounding side up. Her lips were two tiny strips of pimento, her eyes were raisins, her nose a clove and the yellow curls were cheese shavings.

Her body was half an inverted peach pickle with three clove buttons down the front of her waist. Her arms were dainty white sticks of celery, cleverly snipped at the ends for fingers. Her skirt, a large billowy lettuce leaf, concealed a generous helping of creamed chicken.

Rolls and milk completed the main course. Slices of angel food cake topped with individual hearts of red ice cream completed not only a delicious luncheon but one of strong eye appeal
