How to Have an Anti Valentine's Day Party
Valentine's Day is one of those semi controversial holidays, because it's not at all kind to people who are single, and many people who are in relationships aren't fond of it either. Now, don't worry, I've got lots of great ideas for throwing a Valentine's Day party for those who are interested as well. But this one is for anyone who has decided to join in with the latest trend and throw an Anti Valentine's Day party instead. You don't actually have to be against love and romance, of course, it's more about poking fun at the commercialism and lending power to the idea that a. you can be perfectly happy being single and/or spending the day with your friends instead, or b. that couples don't have to just be romantic with and sweet to each other one day of the year. Believe it or not, there are actually a number of Anti Valentine's Day coupon codes to throw a really great party for way less money. Here are several stellar party ideas so you can throw a really great bash.
The Right Music
The first step in throwing your Anti Valentine's Day bash is choosing the music. Here, irony is the key. Check out some music coupon codes for iTunes or your favorite music store and get yourself an Anti V-Day playlist. Go with songs like "Single Ladies," "You Oughta Know," "Love Stinks," and songs of that nature, just to get into the whole anti romance spirit. Let your guests make requests, too! You can even ask your guests to let you know what songs they'd like to hear when you send out your invitations.
The Right Movies
A lot of people throw Valentine's Day parties where they watch movies about love; that Valetine's Day disaster flick has become a popular choice as well. For your Anti Valentine's Day party, you want to do the exact opposite. In addition to the aptly named I Hate Valentine's Day (ironically from the writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding!), as well as other appropriate movies. Again, ask your guests if there's any specific anti V-Day movies they'd like to see. Movie coupon codes can help you out here, especially if you use them for something like Netflix, where you can take advantage of the super quick Watch Instantly feature.
The Right Decorations
You also need to look for Anti Valentine's Day coupons for decorations. ShindigZ is a great place to start. It's actually easy, all you need to do is go for black streamers rather than red and pink. You can pick out heart decorations and then cut them up to resemble broken hearts. Buy some Cupid cutouts and decorate them yourself with markers to make them look like evil little Cupids instead. The point is just to have a lot of fun and celebrate the day with your friends and loved ones, because who says single people can't have a great time on Valentine's Day?
