Love Letters Valentine Dinner

If you're planning to celebrate Valentine's Day with a group of friends, consider hosting a dinner with a love letter theme, complete with a valentine for each guest.

Love Letters Valentine Party
  • Send your guests a thick and elegant invitation printed with a beautiful, flowing font like this one from Crane & Co. -- Available at FineStationery.com
  • Decorate your space with framed love letters taken from the pages of  The Greatest Love Letters of All Time, edited by David H. Lowenherz, and consider hiring a calligrapher to write out the letters for a beautiful presentation -- Pink WallpaperAmazon.com and Etsy seller HaloCalligraphy
  • Invite guests to write out Valentine's Day cards for each attendee (enclosing a guest list with each invitation). Then, before the dinner begins, ask each guest deliver the valentine cards to each place setting (inserting the cards into a napkin folded into the shape of an envelope). -- For the napkin tutorial, visit Dear Emmaline.
