Rent a chocolate fountain
Chocolate and strawberries are perfectly suited for a Valentine's Day party. Consider renting a chocolate fountain to allow kids to dip their fruit. You don't have to stick with just strawberries. Any kind of fruit, pieces of cake, pretzels and even potato chips are terrific when dipped in chocolate.
Make heart-shaped grilled cheese
If you are going to serve more than treats, make heart-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches. Simply use a large cookie cutter to cut the bread into hearts before making the sandwiches. (Save the crust and trimmings to make croutons or stuffing, or just feed the birds.)
