Get your girlfriends together and make the most of February 14 by setting up a festive dessert bar.

Valentine's Day Dessert Bar3. Set up the bar.
Part of the fun of a dessert bar is seeing the sweets displayed in a creative way. In order to get this effect for your table, you’ll need trays and serving platters to organize and hold each dessert. If you’re low on serving dishes, look around your house for creative solutions – a shoebox topped with pink and red paper can work as a stand for your truffles. For those looking to go all out, here’s a Pure Decadence 4 Tier Cake Stand ($22.99, amazon.com) and an Embossed Heart Cake Plate ($14.95, surlatable.com). Arrange all of your desserts in a pretty spread that allows easy access to each item.

4. Decorate, decorate, decorate!
Amy decorates the surrounding area as well as the dessert displays, making sure there are creative details everywhere you look. Mimic her expert touch by stocking up on inexpensive decorations at a craft store, a party store or Target. Amy suggests lining your serving dishes with pink and red paper or doilies. Decorate the table with stickers, streamers, confetti, construction paper, and anything else you can think of (how about some heart-shaped jewelry or a lamp shade covered with a red scarf?). The more creative you get, the more impressive your dessert bar will be.

Valentine's Day Cocktails5. Don’t forget cocktails.
A party with the girls isn’t complete without a festive cocktail. Make one of these delicious Valentine’s Day cocktail recipes and serve it in pretty martini glasses. Don’t forget: with all the nibbling and drinking, you’ll need some napkins handy – might as well have them match your theme like these “Aren’t We All” Beverage Napkins ($5, gallery19.us).

Mmmm…with a delicious spread like this, you and your girlfriends will be too busy going up for seconds at your dessert bar to think about your single status – and as your party will prove, being single definitely has its advantages.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
