Hi, does anyone have any good suggestions for St Valentines Day? I thought of red balloons,red serviettes,and a appropriate love DVD.Any thing else ??

I am going to decorate and have a chocolate fountain, and get the residents to dip strawberries and marshmallow in chocolate, for the afternoon, we also have a entertainer playing the piano.

I've bought red foiled chocolate hearts that are fairly cheap. As well as singing along to the ol' time favourite love songs - they love 'we'll meet again"

I have invited all the married couples and provided lunch in a separate area with smaller tables, table cloths, bought red roses and had them on the table,(wives took them when they left) music playing and a volunteer and myself to help serve. Served wine in special glasses (only plastic) with red serviettes. It was very special and they really loved it.

You could make it a High Tea event, and get out the best china cups and saucers, with small cakes and mini sandwiches on a cake stand.
I have a visiting dance group coming on the 11th (pre planned monthly visit) and have decided to have an early Valentine's day celebration incorporating their visit. I've invited the client's partners for a Devonshire morning tea and then dancing afterward.

We will be having a special luncheon, gathering some of our Elders and invited their family/friends. Our craft group has been busy making heart decorations and we will be making our own place mats with these (will laminate the A4 paper). We have a great chef who loves cooking special lunches with themes, so I am pretty lucky that he gets into the whole theme and works with me to create a special dessert. We will be making heart shaped chocolate lollypops to give out, plus this coincides with our planned entertainer visit.

Meridee - I love the concept of a chocolate fountain - thanks for that tip !! I am sure we can utilise that where I am for other activities.
