As Valentine’s Day approaches, we all need inspiration on how to celebrate the day. A holiday created for us to spend our coin on unnecessary cards, chocolate and expensive dining. The cliché agenda, that we see in almost every romantic-comedy, this year why not spice up your plans? Everyone can participate in the celebrations; valentine’s day isn’t only for those in relationships. It’s also for my independent women, the family orientated and of course the classic couple. If you’re unsure how to celebrate or want to add some spice to the occasion, I’ve got you covered. Divided into three categories, there’s something for every individual to enjoy around London.
Candlelit roof garden, roasted marshmallows around a fire pit and an evening of live music. Snuggle with your significant other under the stars or head inside to the bar for some mid-winter valentine cocktails.
A Cinematic Experience
The Luna Cinema teamed up with the National History Museum for a cinematic experience. An unconventional setting, surrounded by fossils, with a selection of classic movies to choose from. A selection for the lovers and anti-valentine specials. The ticket also grants access to the Life In The Dark exhibition two activities for the price of one.
The Darker Side of Love
Step back in time to the roaring twenties, the party’s been taken underground to a Gatsby-inspired speakeasy. Expect a fine dining experience, an array of jazz musicians and a night of dancing under the sparkling disco ball. Dress for the occasion by wearing your best attire. Loose silhouettes were popular with attention to detail and extravagant styling. Glamour and glitz were achieved through material choices with details including frills, puff sleeves and pearl embroidery.
Girl’s Night Out
Galantine’s Day at Tonight Josephine
Think an evening of sass, girl power and ultimate relaxation. Tonight Josephine has teamed up with Benefit Cosmetics for cocktails, a masterclass and a mini makeover. Capture the beauty of the night with neon signs, drinks in hand and your girls by your side. Then proceed to create fun memories and dance the night away.
Quirky Afternoon Tea
Far from the ordinary afternoon tea, a magical experience inspired by a childhood classic. A tea party beyond imagination, indulge in an afternoon with Alice In Wonderland’s Mad Hatter. Teapots, vintage books and beautiful on theme décor, think ticking clocks and royalty.
Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens
Show your affection to the whole family by heading to Kew Gardens for a magical experience. Celebrate the bright colours of Colombia, the vibrant festival with a surprise at every corner. Something to catch everyone’s attention, there won’t be a dull moment.
