Valentine’s Day event ideas don’t have to be limited to dinner at a fancy restaurant. How about hosting a tent party on Cupid’s big day instead?  Whether you’re planning a romantic tent date or thinking about larger-scale Valentine’s Day parties, you have many party tent options to choose from.

#1 Decide on Menu 

Valentine dinner themes can be as complex or simple as you like. If you’re planning a romantic tent date for two, why not splurge on a quality steak or lobster? If you’re planning on a crowd, ideas for your Valentine's day dinner party could include gourmet heart-shaped pizza and a bright caprese salad. No matter what you have in mind for Valentine's party food ideas, chocolate must make an appearance on your menu. Of course, nothing pairs better with rich chocolate than fine red wine.

#2 Chairs & Tables 

Your happy Valentine’s day tent party would not be complete without plenty of seating and tables. Even the most basic tables and chairs can be dressed up to make your Valentine tent truly special. White tablecloths and chair coverings create a striking contrast to bright red bouquets. Or, for a dramatic and romantic tent, choose a red table and chair coverings. Just be sure that you have enough seating so that everyone has plenty of elbow room. 

#3 Get a Tent

Tips for Valentine’s Day event planning include making sure you choose the right tent! The good news is that you have many options to ensure your Valentine's tent is truly memorable. Since February weather is notoriously unpredictable, sidewalls are a good option to ensure your guests stay comfortable and dry. A clear top tent is perfect for a romantic evening celebration under the stars. Just be sure to choose a reputable tent manufacturer so that your only surprise will be a sparkly gift from your sweetheart.
