Valentine’s Day is here again! What better place to celebrate your relationship than the comfort of your own home? Rather than waiting for hours at a crowded restaurant, spend that time enjoying each other’s company in the coziest setting: your house. With a little effort and creativity, you can create a cozy environment for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day at home.
Build Anticipation for an Elegant Dinner
Begin earlier in the week by planning the menu together. Print it on a card and place it a frame on your table. You’ll eagerly anticipate your meal until the big day arrives!
Go shopping together for the ingredients. Make it an adventure by going somewhere special or unusual for your purchases, such as the farmer’s market or a local bakery or butcher shop. Get recommendations from a local winery or the bartender at an upscale restaurant.
Prepare and Serve the Meal with Extra Romance
The morning of Valentine’s Day, set the scene. Lay out a tablecloth and bring out the dishes and glasses you normally save for very special occasions. Set up candles, flowers, pressed napkins, and your framed menu. Eating at home doesn’t have to feel ordinary!
Begin preparing the meal together. Wear fancy aprons, play your favorite songs, and dance in the kitchen as you bring your menu to life! Compliment your partner on a job well done, or at least on how cute they look trying to help, before changing into nicer dinner attire. Then enjoy the delicious meal and the pleasure of each others’ company without the noise and crowd of a restaurant.
Keep the Romance Going
Instead of talking about normal housekeeping topics, have small slips of paper available after dessert. As you sip your wine, help each other come up with date night ideas and place them in a glass jar where you can see it every day. Make a commitment to add date nights to your routine for the rest of the year!
After dinner, don’t let the rest of your playlist go to waste! Leave the cleanup for later. Push the furniture against the wall and line the space with flickering candles for an extra special slow dance. Take your time and appreciate the quiet, private dance floor and the partner who makes even an evening at home an affair to remember.
