HAVE A VALENTINE PARTY TO SPARK THE HOLIDAY
By guest blogger, Jill Lundberg
Let’s take a break and have some fun! No, it has nothing to do with writing, but even writers need a time out.
Valentine’s Day is an exciting excuse to throw a party. Have everybody wear red apparel. Guests will be in a loving mood and looking for a good time. It doesn’t matter whether you invite couples or singles or a mixture of both. For a little extra spice, invite new friends or neighbors.
Make the house bright and festive. Decorations are easy and available. Buy or cut out red hearts then cut the hearts out in double layers using a jigsaw pattern so that each heart half only matches one other.
Put half of each heart into a container for the women and the other half into a container for the men. Before your guests sit down for dinner, have each person draw half a heart from the proper container and find the person with the matching half. This will really spark dinner conversation and it will also eliminate the need to worry about seating.
A Valentine party is great fun! For more great time outs, drop in at http://www.lettucemakeyoulaugh.com.
Joke of the week:
A gal went to a doctor with black eyes, a badly bruised arm and missing teeth.
“What happened to you?” the doctor said.
“Every time my husband and I argue, he beats me up. I love him, but I just can’t take it any more.”
“You need the Sweet Tea solution.”
“What’s that?” she said.
“Every time your husband is in the same room with you, take a mouthful of sweet tea. As long as he remains in the room you may swish it around or even gargle, but don’t swallow it or spit it out. Come back in a month and we’ll see how that works.”
The next month she returned and looked great.
“How are you doing?” the doctor said.
“The Sweet Tea solution worked great. What’s the secret?”
“Well… you couldn’t talk.”
