I have been preparing for my Anti-Valentine’s Day Party for Teens for a while. I made rude conversation heart decorations. I put together a anti-love songs mix (which I’ll post in a future entry in case you want to steal it). I prepared a black duct tape rose craft (I got black duct tape from the craft store and used this tutorial):
I included some easier crafts like writing rude things on heart doilies and romance novel cover parodies:
And we had lots of snacks that would give you nasty breath:
The teens had nearly no interest in doing the crafts (some of them wrote on the doilies, the rest made animal shapes out of pipe cleaners). They mostly danced to the mix I made, tried to make out with each other while I wasn’t looking (not very anti-Valentine’s U GUISE), and ate all the food. Seriously. I forgot how much teens eat. So, while things didn’t go quite how I planned, I had a really good time.
I know for next time, less crafts. More chips. You can see more pictures on their fashion Tumblr (follow them?).
