From a romantic garden or mansion to a cozy loft or a hip bar, there’s a venue on Peerspace that can fit any Valentine’s Day party style. No party is too big or too small for Peerspace. On our platform, you are sure to find a place where you can bring all of your Valentine’s Day party ideas to life.

There are plenty of venues fit for a Valentine’s Day celebration!

Here are just a few of our favorites:

  • This urban greenhouse in San Francisco, CA (pictured above) with space for 80, industrial style, a wine bar, catering, and more
  • This spacious minimalist event space in Brea, CA brimming with natural light, with space for 40, tables, chairs, and parking
  • This unique and cozy space in Tribeca, NYC with seating for 35, snack and dessert setups, a selection of wines, and fresh floral designs
  • This west Midtown loft-style lounge in Atlanta, GA with room for 75, a kitchenette, amazing lighting, an A/V system, and incredible host add-on options
  • This intimate gathering space in Deep Ellum, Dallas, TX with room for 100, a kitchen, tables and chairs, and outdoor space
  • This romantic boho suite in St. Louis, MO with space for 20 guests, white-washed exposed brick walls, lounge seating, a low dining table, a neon sign, and a kitchen

This is only a small sampling of the types of event spaces you can book on Peerspace that are perfect for Valentine’s Day parties.

Plus, using Peerspace is incredibly easy. If you’ve ever used Airbnb, then you already know how to use Peerspace. It works in a similar way — “hosts” list their homes, stores, restaurants, and other properties, with each space available to rent by the hour. You can find places with amenities that fit your unique party plans, including kitchens, pools, fireplaces, green screens, and more.

You then book a space through a venue’s listing page and contact the host with any questions or requests. In fact. if you require catering services or furniture and A/V rentals, you can actually ask your venue’s local host if they can provide assistance. They want you to have an amazing time in their space and strive to help in any way they can!

2. Invite puppies

Celebrate puppy love with this unique Valentine’s Day party idea. Who could say no to your invite when they find out that furry four-legged friends are on the guest list? It sounds too good to be true, but in many places, you can actually “rent” puppies in exchange for a donation to the shelter hosting the puppies.

PuppyParty in NYC is just one example of such a service, but there are shelters all over the country that do this. Just Google “rent puppies” (it sounds sketchy, but trust us, it’s a thing!). You may even end up with a new best friend! This type of party raises awareness about shelter dogs and makes any event instantly awesome.

3. Set up a photo booth

Rent a photo booth to create lasting memories at your party. Gather some props like foil balloons, hearts, silly hats, a Cupid’s bow, and flowers, then grab a Polaroid for instant printing. For a cheap, do-it-yourself option, set up some PVC pipes and pink or red fabric for a cool backdrop.

You can also opt to book a Peerspace photoshoot location that already has photobooth, backdrops, and props for your use! If you are feeling silly, cut out your guests’ celebrity crush’s faces and put them on Popsicle sticks so everyone can take a photo with their dream Valentine.

One cute venue suggestion is this selfie studio with multiple themed sets in Milford, OH. It boasts several different photoshoot sets complete with colorful backdrops and props to play with.

4. Create sweets for a dessert table

Create a sweet setup for your gal pals by going all out with a dessert table! Include classic Valentine’s Day treats like Hershey’s Kisses roses and chocolate-covered strawberries. Fondue, red velvet Bundtinis, whoopie pies, cupcakes, macarons, and custom fortune cookie valentines are also perfect for the occasion. For the ultimate Galentine’s Day treat, celebrate badass women and show off your baking skills with these cookies.

Once you have selected your sweets, complete the look with cute paper plates from the party store, a pink or red tablecloth, a garland or banner with hearts, and cake stands. The dollar spot at Target is also an excellent place for bargain finds for a festive tablescape. For more inspiration for displaying your sweets, check out this blog.

Rather leave the sweets and decor to the professionals? Then consider booking this modern chocolate lab in Charlotte, NC. Host your Valentine’s Day party here and you and your guests can enjoy a handmade chocolate truffle cooking tutorial! Yum!

5. Give back to the community

Spread the love at your Valentine’s Day party by turning it into a charitable event. Together, you and your guests can create care packages for homeless shelters, animal shelters, or school children in need. Or, you can take a group “field trip” to a local organization to volunteer your time before going back to your party venue for snacks.

6. Write some old-fashioned valentines

This is one of those old-school Valentine’s Day party ideas that never goes out of style. You can buy boxes of paper Valentine’s Day cards or create your own handmade ones with cardstock, gel pens, markers, stickers, and other paper decorations. String some white paper bags with the guests’ names on them on some red or pink yarn with clothespins, then have everyone “deliver” the valentines to the bags.

7. Craft cocktails

Sip on some “love potions.” Serve some pretty-in-pink drinks — think strawberry flavors, as well as drinks with grenadine, cranberry juice, and grapefruit juice as mixers. Include rose cocktail recipes, too. Use festive glasses or cups, cute Valentine’s napkins, paper straws, and flowers as garnishes for Insta-worthy libations. Also, consider offering nonalcoholic options like Shirley Temples, Cherry Coke, and strawberry lemonade.

Want to book a gorgeous bar to enjoy Valentine’s Day party ideas like this? Then check out this adorable horseshoe bar with bohemian decor in Brooklyn, NYC. A Peerspace reviewer referred to it as a: “Beautiful bar! Tarek was great at communicating with us and making sure everything went smoothly”.

8. Enjoy a hot cocoa or coffee bar

Don’t forget the whipped cream (which comes in different flavors and non-dairy options now!) mini pink marshmallows, heart-shaped marshmallow cutouts, pink and red sprinkles, cinnamon sticks, strawberry cookie straws, and more!

Gather up or buy a set of the most festive Valentine’s mugs (Target always has an incredible selection). If you don’t have a Keurig for making single-serve Swiss Miss, you can make a large batch of hot cocoa using a crock pot!

9. Host a lovely brunch
