Lots of lights. You could just use Christmas light.

Hi, my friends and I are from high park alternative school and we have 2 days to plan a valentines day party and so we're staying in at lunch but were not really getting anywhere. We read all of these ideas and some of them are pretty cool, but we think that the dancing with teachers thing is just...ew. creepy. So here are some of our plans but they kinda suck....
-our theme is valentines day so probably pink and read and heartish lovey stuff every where
-strawberry ice cream sundaes with whipped cream and merachino cherries
-red pink and white streamers
-we might use the "cupids got bad aim" theme (thx whoever came up with that idea)
-piles and piles of heart shaped cookies with red and pink sprinkles
-lots of sparkly white lights so we can turn the lights off
-strawberrys dipped in chocolate fondu
-lots of different types of music because every likes different types.
-fake flowers everywhere
-arrange all the tables in a hear shape
(omg I TOLD you out ideas are lame :S)
-put confetti everywhere (valentines colours)
-ipod speakers for people to do their own music and requests if wanted
-fruit and candy cabobs
-heart shaped ice cudes cuz we have heart shaped ice cube trays :P
(if you have any good ideas for us PLASE email me b4 valentines day! rachael_roxygirl AT hotmail.com
-romantic playlists chips and stuff like regular party foods
-heart glasses (hard to explain)

If refreshments are served, think red/pink for the drinks or punch. Snacks & treats can help carry the theme, so if they're donated ask for valentine theme items. Use of red or Valentine napkins helps set the tone. Not everything has to be those colors. Too much is not good. Clear cups & colored/theme napkins work well for example. Or colored cups & napkins with white foam plates. Perhaps the music would be a bit more "romatically" themed, however, not everyone there will be a couple which must be taken into consideration. Unless it's a couples dance.
There's plenty of good rock or modern music that could fit into a Valentine's Day theme. Just think about the titles or words of the songs, anything about love whether good or bad. That would include many songs in any style of music.
Remember that the kids there will be between 6th & 8th grade (guess?) so the ages & interests will be varied. Some are into dating & some are not. It should be enjoyable for all kids represented there. Maybe you could get some teachers involved & raffle (for free & for fun) a dance w/ "your favorite teacher of choice".
Kids could put their names into a "hat" to be chosen to dance. Teachers present would line up & chosen kids would choose a teacher. I don't know if this would be permitted, so get permission first. Could be seen as good entertainment or perhaps not allowed. If allowed, it doesn't have to be a romantic song, fast dancing would be equally as fun, perhaps more so as the teachers may not dance the way the kids do! It could even be a silly Valentines type song. The music teacher might have some good selections. May be difficult to get teachers to make "fools" of themselves, but many are all for good fun.
Or, for fun, have a coffee can set up for each teacher at the school, kids can cast a paper vote for their 'favorite' / 'most lovable' teacher & write why. With the winner & runners up being announced at the dance & some of the reasons read. The cans of votes & reasons can then be given to those teachers, it will make them smile to see why the students like them. Please do not use these or other activities to hurt feelings of teachers or kids. Hope you enjoy the dance whatever you decide to do. (01/20/2006)
