Valentine’s Day Party {Food & Decor}

Learn how to throw a quick and easy Valentine’s Day party with a romantic pink dessert table. It’s a sweet way to surprise your partner with all of his/her favorite sweet treats.

*Thank you Edible Arrangements for sponsoring today’s post so that I could share this party and recipes with all of you. As always, all opinions are mine.*

It’s officially February and this fun party is a wonderful way to celebrate love and romance. Hubby and I celebrated early this year since I will be traveling on the 14th.

Valentine's Day Party Decor With Pink Hearts and Rose Petals

Valentine’s Day Party decor

For decoration and backdrop, I kept things simple with a pink and white color theme. I used a wood design paper backdrop with a pink ruffle banner. I attached both of these to the wall behind the table. Then, I set up a rose petal trail all the way from the main entrance to the dessert table. This is a really fun way for your partner to see the surprise table! Fill up any empty space with huge helium-filled heart balloons, pink and red flowers, rose petals, confetti.

Valentines Party Dessert table

One important thing that every dessert table needs is a “focal point.” Normally, that’s a fancy decorated layer cake. However, the edible bouquet from Edible Arrangements was so stunning and such a show stopper that it made the perfect center piece for my romantic dessert table. It’s a hand crafted bouquet, made with juicy fresh fruits.

These themed tables should include a variety of desserts- cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, bars e.t.c. Also, include multiple different flavors to keep the food exciting. Most of the food should be bite-sized and in individual cups and there should be small pre-cut slices for larger desserts like brownies or cheesecakes. Feel free to use seasonal cupcake liners and wrappers.

Add little labels beside each dessert (I didn’t do it this time because it was just for me and my husband). For guests, it is very helpful and I highly recommend them.

Make sure that every item is on its own individual cake stand or serving dish and stick to your color theme. All of my dishes were either pink, white or red.

Use a tablecloth that is not too distracting with too many patterns. I didn’t have to use one because I liked the white colored table.

This dessert table was epic and had all of my hubby’s favorites:

  • Chocolate fondue with pink wafers and pretzels
  • Chocolate covered granola bars with pink chocolate drizzle
  • Cute chocolate bears
  • Sweet and salty popcorn mix
  • Rose cupcakes
  • Chocolate covered sugar cookies
  • Box of fancy candies
  • Rose punch
  • Fruit bouquet

Valentine’s Day Party Food Ideas- Desserts and Drinks

I like to put a heavy emphasis on sweet rather than savory at my parties. For dessert tables, especially, sweet food items look the best visually compared to savory items. Include a variety of sweet treats such as cakes, cupcakes, cookies, candies, brownies and bars. For drinks, keep alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Try to stick to pink and red colors to keep the romantic theme consistent. Check out this post on Pink Desserts (Valentine’s Day Desserts) for more inspiration.

Fruits

Chocolate dipped fruits are the best and an absolute classic. Make sure you are using ripe fruits that are in season. Include strawberries, peaches, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries. This edible Valentine bouquet from Edible Arrangements was so stunning that I used that instead of a platter of fruits. There are grape skewers, heart shaped pineapples, chocolate dipped strawberries (Hubby and I loved these!) and even a chocolate heart. It’s so beautiful, delicious and great for sharing too. Even on its own, this bouquet makes the perfect gift.

Candy

You can buy seasonal candies from grocery stores or order them online from specialty candy stores. This chocolate box from Edible Arrangements made a fantastic addition to my dessert table. The packaging was very sleek and stylish and the chocolates had the most incredible fillings like passionfruit, pineapple, orange, raspberry, caramel and hazelnuts. Hubby liked the hazelnut one while I fell in love with the passionfruit one. Honestly, I would expect nothing less from famed chocolatier, Jacques Torres, who was the mastermind behind this chocolate box. Homemade candies are another option. Classics include chocolate truffles, chocolate bark, fudge.

My favorite Valentine’s Day Party Food- Tiered Heart Cake

This is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing that’s decorated in bluish-gray fondant and jumbo heart sprinkles. I love how this heart cake is not a typical heart “shaped” cake. It is a big cake and can feed up to 20 people. You can make a smaller version of this cake, if it will just be for a couple. You can try different cake flavors and frosting flavors and even play around with the colors of the overall cake design. Take this idea and make it your own! Also, if you don’t want to make a tiered cake, you can just make a single tier and it will be less work.

Tiered Valentine's Day Cake With Heart Sprinkles on Rustic Gray Background

Ingredients

  • 3 cakes, Round, Dimensions 8×3 (bottom tier) and two 6×3 (top tier)
  • 6 cups Frosting
  • 5 cups Fondant , Colored grayish blue
  • 1/2 cup Melted chocolate
  • 1 cup Jumbo heart sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Bake your cakes and allow them to cool completely.
  2. Place the 8 inch cake on a cake board (should be the same size as your cake) and ice it smoothly. You can cut in half lengthwise and add a filling, if you like. I didn’t do it.
  3. Place one 6 inch cake on a cake board (should be the same size as your cake). Spread icing on top evenly. Place the second 6 inch cake on top of the icing and press gently to secure into place. Frost the entire cake smoothly in chocolate buttercream.
  4. Roll out fondant and spread it over these iced cakes.
  5. Cut off excess fondant around the base of each cake with a pizza cutter.
  6. Use a fondant smoother to smooth out the fondant on top and the sides of the cake.
  7. Next, place the larger 8 inch cake on a serving dish or a cake stand.
  8. Push 5 bubble tea straws or wooden dowels around the center of the cake for support.
  9. Spread some icing on top of the straws.
  10. Place the tall 6 inch cake on top of this icing. Press gently to secure into place. The icing should work like “glue.”
  11. Brush melted chocolate behind each jumbo sprinkle and stick them around the cake.
  12. For the final step, stick a braided white fondant border around the base of both your tiers. Instead of this, you can just pipe a border with white buttercream icing. Enjoy!

Storage

Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Please note that fondant decorations may become sticky from the moisture in the refrigerator.
