Valentine’s Day is quickly coming up and if you don’t
already have plans, we’re here to help. Skip the crowded restaurants and try some
of these fun and romantic plans for a Valentine’s date night in your new
Cook a romantic dinner
Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest nights for restaurants. Skip the long wait times by having a romantic dinner at home. If you love to cook, have fun recreating your favorite meal from your favorite restaurant. Or you can order take out from your favorite restaurant and re-plate the food on your own plates.
You can even turn this into a picnic in the living room by the fireplace or by candlelight (opt for LED candles, so you don’t even have to worry about accidentally knocking over a candle!). Lay a blanket and some pillows and settle in for a cozy meal.
Make a spa night
Treat yourself without leaving home with a DIY spa night.
Clear out any clutter in the bathroom, dim the lights or light some candles,
and play some soothing music. For an extra special touch of luxury, serve
champagne or sparkling wine or cider. Draw a bubble bath or steamy shower, take
turns giving each other a massage, or grab some foot scrub, lotion, or face
masks and relax and unwind together.
Host a pajama and movie night
Put on your pajamas, grab some popcorn and drinks, and watch your favorite movies or maybe something new.
Dance the night away
Once dinner is over, move aside some furniture and turn your living room into a dance floor. Cue up some music and dance the night away. You can slow dance to slow jams, or learn some traditional dance steps like the Salsa, or freestyle to your favorite music.
Host a game night
Playing games aren’t just for kids. Gather your favorite
board games, deck of cards, or even video games and have a night of friendly
competition. You can also create a scavenger hunt around the house to a special
gift or treat.
Whatever you decide to do in celebration of Valentine’s Day this year, the best thing to do is remember why you fell in love with your partner and let them know. At Southern Homes, we hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day filled with plenty of love.
