"Covert Cupid"

I love having and going to Secret Santa parties, so it's a disappointment to me that they only happen once a year. When I was thinking of fun ways to celebrate Valentine's Day, I thought of Covert Cupid... the same idea as Secret Santa, except this one is for Valentine's Day! This is a fabulous way to celebrate Valentine's Day with all of your single friends. Check out the ways below to make your Covert Cupid party a success!

one // assign cupids
This is the same exact thing as Secret Santa. Put all of the girls' names in a hat and have each girl pick a name. The names stay a secret until the actual party when each girl tries to guess who their Covert Cupid is! Figure out who will host the party.

two // create party favors
The most cliche items that girls receive on Valentine's Day from their boyfriends are teddy bears, roses, jewelry, and chocolates. Put together a party favor for each girl that consists of a rose, some chocolates, a small teddy bear, and a small piece of jewelry such as an Alex & Ani! You can put them in Valentine's Day-themed party favor bags.

three // plan food
On Valentine's Day, most couples either go to a nice restaurant or just get takeout. If you want to go with a "fancier" option for food, you can make a large amount of spaghetti, meatballs, garlic bread, and salad. If you want to go with a "take out" option for food, you can get pizzas and salad. Make sure to have little dishes around the house full of various chocolate candies!

four // make a playlist
Make a music playlist consisting of love songs. Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars would be two very good artists to have on this playlist! The songs can be about heartbreak, unrequited love, falling in love, etc.

five // set up games
Come up with fun games to play! They can be "pin the bow and arrow on the cupid" (similar to pin the tail on the donkey),  "hot or not" using people you know or celebrities, and more! Search through Pinterest to see if there are any good ones.

six // set aside a movie
Every year on Valentine's Day, a romance movie comes out to theaters. Have a little "love story" movie marathon if you want to see some tear-jerkers - such as The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, The Vow, etc. - or watch comical romance movies - such as Crazy, Stupid, Love - to watch with your friends.

These are just some ideas, but there are definitely plenty more! Remember that Valentine's Day is about spending time with the ones you love, in this case your friends, so make your Covert Cupid however you like it.

Are you thinking of having a Covert Cupid party?
