The Ultimate Last-Minute Party Ideas for Singles


Yes. it's that time of the year again - Valentine's Day!

And many people have different feelings about it. 

For some, it's a perfect reason to go on a romantic date, exchange gifts and eat lots of chocolate.

For others, it's an overrated holiday that only highlights their single status.

Now, this might sound like a cliché, but honestly, being single on Valentine's Day is awesome!

And not for some made-up reasons, like you might save some money, or because being in a relationship is boring, or watching Netflix alone is better than as a couple. 

No. Being single on Valentine's Day is awesome for a much better and bigger reason:

To Throw The Best Valentine's Day Party Ever!!! (For The Singles)

(That sounds like a good enough reason for me!)

And we are here to help.

Let's break this up in simple steps.

STEP 1: Choose the ultimate theme of the party and throw a decoration or two (you don't want an average party, right?)

Your Valentine's Party for the singles should fit your personality and tastes. You know that everyone has a different vibe, so choose one that matches the kind of experience you want to create. 

Whether you chose a classic Galentine's Day Party with your gal-pals, or mixed up party for all your single friends, the theme will set the tone of the party and everyone will know just what to expect. 

We will guide you through 3 of our favorite themes, but there are lots of resources where you can create your own theme.

OUR TOP 3 PARTY THEMES

1. Glow In The Dark Party

This is the best choice for a group of friends who love to dance.

But, who doesn’t love a bit of glow in the dark fun at a party, anyway? 

Make your whole place glow, including yourself with these glowing party ideas. 

i) Use black lights to make everything glow in the dark.

ii) Ask your friends to wear plain black or white t-shirts (best for neon glow fun).

iii) Use glow sticks in any color for everything you can possibly think of: bracelets, table decorations, and more

2. Tropical Themed Party - to bring back summer memories

Bring the tropical summer back earlier with an all-time favorite Tropical Hawaiian party.

STEP 4: Make time for games  

If there are more people at your party, you might need some ice-breakers games, just to start the party right. You will sure to have a lot of fun with these games below.

1. Glow In The Dark Party Games

i) Nighttime Twister- Take a traditional Twister game and paint over it with glow in the dark paint! (don't forget to do the spinner too). We're sure it will be more fun than the regular game.

ii) Glow In The Dark Bowling - Fill 6 clear bottles with water and a glow stick (those will be the bowling pins), choose a ball that glows or lights up, and have fun! 

iii) Glow Charades - Glow necklaces, bracelets, and glasses make this game challenging and fun! Let the performer pick an action card out of a box (ie juggling, running, archery, moonwalking). Everyone will need to guess the action... by the way the glow items move on the performer, it will be a lot of fun to watch!

2. Tropical Party Games

Video credit: Cityline

i) Hula Hoop Till You Drop Contest - That has to be fun on any given day, but much better on a tropical party contest!

ii) Pass the Orange Game - Two teams form a line…each team has an orange and passes it from person to person under their chin – no hands allowed! The first team that passes the orange all the way down the line wins!

And last but not least...

iii) Limbo Rock - Get in the mood with some Hawaiian tunes and just dance, dance, dance.

3. Glam Party Games

i) Treasure Hunts - That's right. We said Treasure Hunts. This isn't a game for the kids only. Create challenging treasure hunts for adults!

ii) Who is It? - This addition to the adult party game ideas list will truly leave you wondering who is it? See if you can guess! You'll find out some great fun-facts about your friends and all get to know each other better.

Finally...
