Ask Mrs. Fields: How to Have an Appropriate Valentine Party at Work
Dear Mrs. Fields,
Is it possible to have a Valentine’s Day party at work without it being…weird? I’m on the party planning committee at my office and we want to have a valentine party, but not sure how to pull it off. Any suggestions?
Great question! The answer is yes, I have some fun ideas to keep your party fun, appropriate, and not…weird.
- Keep it light and inclusive, focusing on food and fun. You want those without a valentine to feel included and excited.
- Potlucks are always great for office parties. How about a chocolate theme, dessert bar, “red” foods or spicy foods?
- Go old school and invite everyone to share grade school valentines.
- Have sugar cookies to decorate like conversation hearts. (Recipe here.)
- If there’s a budget, raffle off a fun valentine gift like our Frosted Hearts Basket. (Think about it, this gift could make someone’s day, or even save the day of some forgetful fellow!)
