Your guide to planning an incredible Valentine’s Day surprise

If you do the same old thing every Valentine’s Day and you’d love to make a truly romantic gesture this year, The Event Experts can help. With our guide, you can spring the ultimate Valentine’s Day surprise for your partner. Take a look…

Play it cool

What’s the key to springing the perfect surprise? Playing it cool, so that your partner never suspects for a minute what you have planned. So, before you start planning all the bells and whistles to knock your loved one off their feet, practice your poker face. You could even pretend you haven’t planned anything, as long as it doesn’t make your partner too furious!

Fizz and fireworks

Valentine’s Day just wouldn’t be the same without something sparkling, so make sure you have a bottle of champagne – or prosecco if you prefer – on ice ready to toast the occasion. If you really want to push the boat out for a special surprise, why not hold a mini fireworks display? You can get a friend or even professional display organiser to run it all for you, so you can be by your partner’s side when the fireworks begin. Even if it’s just ice fountains as a table centrepiece, it’ll still be pretty spectacular.

Knockout décor tips

One of the best ways to set the scene for your big Valentine’s Day surprise is with incredible décor. Top ideas to bowl him or her over include:

  • Filling the room with flowers or balloons
  • Spelling his or her name out with beautiful twinkly alphabet letter light boxes (including Mr and Mrs LED lights perfect for married couples), or spelling out a romantic message instead.
  • Decorating the room with candles and rose petals – these may be something of a cliché, but they are a classic when it comes to creating romance.

Plan a party

Many people’s idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day is just the two of you, enjoying some quality time alone together. However, this doesn’t work for everyone. Some find the day a little too soppy, while others would prefer to spend the day celebrating with a wider circle of loved ones. If this sounds like you, why not plan a Valentine’s Day party? It’d be the ultimate surprise, includes your single friends and is a really fun way to celebrate. For party planning ideas, check out our party shop.

Popping the question?

If 14th February is the day you’ve picked to ask your partner to marry you, this can be the icing on the cake of an already super romantic evening. Candles, champagne and decor are all essentials for creating the perfect mood for your proposal, but the rest is down to finding the right moment. If you feel pretty confident of the answer, get that fireworks display organised now. Good luck!
