Dinner for Two

Start your evening with a romantic dinner for two. A few simple tricks will turn an ordinary dinner table into an extraordinary dining space. Incorporate red hues, such as a deep red table cloth, throw pillows, or a high-end bottle of Malbec. Roses are the quintessential Valentine’s flower, so be sure to work them into your décor. Add a small memento or photograph from a special day the two of you shared to bring back memories.

Stargaze with your Sweetie

If you’re one of the lucky ones living in a warm climate, use your patio to your advantage. Watch your favorite chick-flick movie on your deck by setting up a projector, or enjoy your evening cozied up under the stars. Check out these backyards with perfect set-ups. Bonus points for a patio with a fire pit to keep you warm after the sun goes down.

Create Your Own Oasis

Few things are better than escaping the rest of the world and truly relaxing with your loved one. One easy way to do that? Turn your bathroom into an oasis for two. Surround the bathtub with candles and rose petals to create a romantic and soothing ambiance. Make sure you have the right lighting to truly set the mood. Use a variety of candles, lanterns, dim chandelier lighting, or soft track lights to achieve the look.

Make it a Movie Night

Nothing beats sharing a laugh while watching your favorite movies or TV shows together. Whether it’s a Netflix marathon or a beloved rom-com classic, end the evening curled up on comfy seating with plentiful pillows and cozy blankets. Aren’t you glad you didn’t have to venture out to a crowded restaurant?
