Anti-Valentine's Day Invitation

You hate V-day, that's why you need to host a party. It's a matter of perspective.
You ought to treat yourself and have fun with others on this day. Totally not sourgraping!
Anti-Valentine's Day Decorations
1. DIY Heart Pinata
Get a heart-shaped pinata and paste on your own Anti-Valentine's Day slogan to get everyone hyped up. Make your own from this inspiration.
Pinata Definition: A colorful figure usually made from paper mache or clay containing candies, toys, and other treats.
2. Love Stinks Banner

Make a banner that shouts your gathering cry. “Love stinks,” “Love sucks,” “I think, therefore I’m single,” and other sayings, quotes, and slogans.
3. Anti Love Black Hearts Garland

Anti-Valentine's Day Music
1. Love Stinks- Adam Sandler
Your party needs songs that express your exact feelings. “Love Stinks” seems to be the ultimate theme song for Anti-Valentine's day.
“This thing they call love, it's gonna make you cry…” How apt!
2. What's Love Got To Do With It?- Tina Turner
This Grammy Hall of Fame singer made this song a timeless reminder of “love as a second-hand emotion.” Adding this song to your playlist for your Anti-Valentine's day party will lead your guests to sing their hearts out too.
3. I Will Survive- Gloria Gaynor
This 1970's hit song is another timeless piece many single wounded ladies could relate. Play this music and your guests will hit the dance floor and dance their hearts away.
