Valentine’s day is my favorite holiday and it wouldn’t be complete without something sweet. Add a small dessert display with candy, cookies or both – be creative.

Tablescapes…don’t over-think the design. Have fun, make if personal. Pull out your favorite china, linens or serving pieces and create a unique signature Valentine’s Day cocktail (virgin or non-virgin).

Valentine’s Day at home is all about the love you have for your spouse or significant other and setting the tone for the night. Fill your space with red and pink flowers and candles to set the tone for a romantic night.

Remember the china you registered for during wedding planing? Go ahead and use those to elevate your table from a normal dinner night, to a romantic dinner party for two. If you don’t have gorgeous china, you can swing by your local rental company.

Surprise your partner by rearranging your space to create a romantic table for two. Take the leaf out of your dinning room table, set a table in front of the fireplace or move your love seat or settee to the dinning room table for a fun and intimate seating arrangement.

Add some fun to the evening by creating a date night jar together. Take turns writing down fun activities that you’d like to do together, they don’t have to be fancy or expensive, just fun ways to enjoy each other’s company. Now, when you’re ready for a date, pull out an idea and see where you’re off to!
