Red is often evocative of a variety of emotions and concepts, including passion, love, energy, power, danger and vitality.

It is the predominant colour for Lunar New Year celebrations, Valentine’s Day and also often used around Christmas. Here are 17 creative and unique red party ideas to inspire you!
