Need help with a Valentine dinner party theme!

TripChick | Feb 4, 2009 02:41 PM

Fellow chowhounds, I need help! I am planning a Valentine dinner party for about 8 people at our house but am having a brain fart actually coming up with a neat Valentine's Day theme.

To give some background, I really enjoy cooking and we routinely (usually a couple of times a month) invite friends over for a theme dinner...some recent ones were "olives", "Presidential recipes" and "purple foods". The group is usually a mix of couples and singles, so I want to approach the theme with a whimsical or lighthearted bent. I have discarded the more obvious ideas of "red" food or "aphrodisiacs" and while I was thinking of something along the lines of "St. Valentine's Day Massacre" and serving Italian/Chicago food that might be a bit of a stretch.

If anyone has some ideas, I'd love to hear them!
