From Single to Shacked
Up: Valentine's Day
Shindigs For Ladies of
Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s Day has snuck up on us, yet again! So if you’re at home cursing out Cupid, celebrity wedding and event designer, Brian Worley, begs you to put down the matches and old photos of your ex— he’s got the perfect V-Day shindig for ladies of every status from single to shacked up.
For Newly-Single Solos: “Pamper yourselves! Make Single’s Valentine’s a fun day with your friends that is all about self-care. Since you’re not spending money on a man, do something nice for yourself! Whether you get a massage, manicure, pedicure or a new dress, do something that makes you feel good and inevitably boosts your confidence.”
His Celeb Suggestion: Taylor Swift
For Single Besties: “Girl’s Night In! When spending a Single’s Valentine’s Day with your friends, get away from the traditional red & pink. Instead, decorate in bright colors, like orange and turquoise to set the tone for a fun evening. A “Heaven & Hell” buffet is perfect for a Girl’s Night— Fill one side of your table with healthy eats (i.e. veggies, fruit skewers & sushi) and the other side with all of your favorite Valentine’s sweets! Cake decorating is the new “color me mine” and easy to do at home. Have everyone bring their favorite cookie, brownie or cake recipe and work up an appetite!”
His Celeb Suggestion: Newly-Single Crossroads co-stars Britney Spears & Zoë Saldana should have a reunion and host it for their friends!
For Couples: “Spend Valentine’s day with an intimate weekend, relaxing in a remote, romantic location. Sometimes a few days away is all you need to spark the romance flame. If you aren’t able to jet set to the Bahamas, plan a staycation! Whether a trip to the local beach inn, or a night at a classy hotel in the city, getting away from the everyday craziness of life is instantly relaxing and romantic.”
His Celeb Suggestion: Hot "It" couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
For Expectant Duos: “This could be your last night alone for a while, so make it count! When you’re pregnant, everything is uncomfortable. What better way to celebrate V-Day then a peaceful couple’s massage? It’s relaxing AND romantic.
His Celeb Suggestion: Parents-to-be Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa
For the Mommy-to-Be: “The way to any woman’s heart is sweets, but it’s especially true for a pregnant woman! Plan a romantic night in with your Valentine, prepare a bubble bath and treat your love to an elaborate sweets buffet, complete with all of her favorite candies, cookies & treats.”
His Celeb Suggestion: Mommy-to-Be (and bona fide sweet tooth!) Holly Madison
