With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away, many of us are looking for safe and romantic ways to make the day special. We spend a lot of time at home right now, so a date night at home might not seem all that exciting. Fortunately, with a little creative planning, you can turn “another night at home” into a romantic evening full of precious memories you and your loved one will cherish for many years to come!
Set the Stage for Date Night at Home
Turn your home into a romantic destination for two. There are a few ideas we love to help set the stage for Valentine’s Day date night at home:
- Dim the lights and light some candles
- Create a playlist of your favorite love songs
- Use hearts to add a touch of whimsy: a heart backdrop, heart pillows or heart shaped dishware add a romantic touch
Build Anticipation for Date Night at Home
Get your loved one in the mood to celebrate by finding fun ways to celebrate the day all day long. Leave little love notes in places they will find them through-out the day, building up excitement leading up to your Valentine’s Day date night at home!
Plan a menu that includes both of your favorite dishes. Set the table with your favorite linens and china and serve your meal in heart shaped dinnerware for an extra romantic touch! No time to cook? That’s okay – we all get busy! Order take out from your favorite restaurant and serve it in your best dinnerware for an elegant feel!
Get Your Cuddle On
Finish your day by snuggling up with your loved one and enjoying a favorite movie, board game or just some wonderful conversation! Create the perfect spot to encourage cuddling with cozy oversized his and her sweaters, fuzzy pillows and cozy throw blankets!
