Celebrate Valentine’s Day With A Divorce Party

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Valentine’s Day can be difficult if you’re going through a divorce, so a Los Angeles party planner is suggesting turning it into a reason to celebrate.

Christine Gallagher says divorcing someone is tough “even if you ditched them,” especially because “every other ceremony – marriages, births, graduations – has a ritual.”

Gallagher offers suggestions at, citing one disgruntled divorcee who served a cake chopped in half topped with figures of a bride and a headless groom.

The groom’s head was baked in the cake and the guest who found it won a bumper sticker reading, Who knew forever would mean a year?

Gallagher also says you can honor D-Day by serving banana splits and split pea soup and suggests playing songs like “Burning Down The House,” or “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore.”

The rules for divorce parties are less stringent than weddings, but there are some don’ts. Gallagher says it’s best to keep the guest list small and, if you have kids with your ex, it’s not a good idea to invite them to the splitsville shindig.
