Spread the love this Valentines Day! Top Tips for Venues

Valentine’s day is fast approaching and whether you love it or loathe it, the fact is that it’s a brilliant chance to hop on the commercial bandwagon and provide a great date opportunity for your customers. You want to set an atmosphere that is both romantic and fun, offering something memorable. From hanging up love-themed decorations to offering specifically tailored valentines day menus and drinks, to putting on unique entertainment there is so much you can do.

Here are some top tips to spread the love this Valentine's Day:

Deck the place out with valentine’s decorations

Nothing says the “day of love” quite like some heart shaped decorations and candles. You don’t need to spend a fortune to deck your venue out and show you’ve made an effort, simply playing around with balloons and atmospheric lighting can make a real difference. You could add in white tablecloths and confetti on tables, or why not switch up your normal centerpieces for a red rose the happy couple can take away with them?

Consider a tailored Valentine’s Menu

When looking to entice people on valentine’s, you want to show you’ve made an effort. Many venues opt for a tailored menu, often offering a fixed price for two or three courses, with or without drinks. You want to make something that will appeal to many while also retaining true to your values and what you usually offer. Whether you’re a fine dining place or a more casual style bar, stick to this vibe as people will know what to expect. By offering a special price, people will be more likely to book and you can have a better idea of numbers too if people are booking in advance.

Put on some love-themed karaoke

Valentine’s is about getting out and having a date night to remember, so why not make it truly unforgettable by offering karaoke? This is something that everyone loves - even more so once they’ve had a couple of your special valentine’s day cocktails! Couples will love nothing more than ramping up the evening with a duet to some of the world’s greatest love songs - whether this be “Hopelessly Devoted To You” by Olivia Newton John, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen or a brave rendition of “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.

Consider a galentine's event

As valentine’s day has rapidly gained popularity over the years, so has galentine's day. A celebration for women who are single around valentine’s and don’t want to miss out on the fun, it’s well worth catering for them this February. Taking place on the 13th of February, the day before Valentine’s day, offer a set Galentines menu, let them drown their sorrows as they sing their hearts out to karaoke and offer themed cocktails to wash the night down with. It’s sure to be a fantastic event and means you can make use of your decorations, entertainment and set menu prices for more than just one day.

Strike the balance between romantic and cheesy

We all want a bit of romance on February the 14th, but not for it to be insufferably so. Consider how you can decorate your venue and provide a menu that will be loved without being overly cheesy. Some people like to use Valentine's day as an excuse to head out with their other half, but don’t want to be bombarded with love hearts, teddy bears and soppiness. Keep it classy with understated decorations, themed drinks and entertainment that strikes the perfect balance.
