Valentine's Day party
Get some butcher paper. Cut out big hearts and use them as place mats. Tie roses to the ends of your silverware. throw rose petals all over the table. Cut more paper hearts, punch a hole in their tops and tie some string to them. Tape the ends of the strings to the ceiling above the table in a circle (be sure it's not the kinda tape that takes off paint).
Play Mazzy star and Mozart. And don't forget the candles. Handwrite menu items on paper in calligraphylike script. Draw little borders around the page. Copy menu onto vintage-looking sheets of paper and place on plates. Invite a small group of best friends. Have them dress very nice. Pay your sister to help serve food in a waitress outfit.
