Dining out is a Valentine's Day classic. However, for people still living in the red zone, this option is not possible. Here are some ideas to spice up your night at home.
Breakfast in bed
Why not start the day with a romantic breakfast in bed this weekend? Or, we invite the whole family to share a delicious breakfast. Croissant, chocolatine, jams or French toast: take the opportunity to start the day under the theme of love and sharing.
A successful Valentine's Day party requires a little something more, and while we believe that all occasions are good for popping the bubbles (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), February 14 is a perfect day for a little toast. Bubbles are love, celebration, romance: that several emblematic couples of the big screen clink glasses with a shot of champagne is therefore not trivial. So, like Humphrey Bogart: Here’s looking at you kid…
You feel like doingchange of simple bubbles? You can also whet your appetite with a delicious cocktail, again, with or without alcohol. Mint Julep, à la Gone with the Wind, Whiskey Sour, as in Breakfast at Tiffany's, or even Champagne Cocktail, as in the film An Affair to Remember, still considered one of the most romantic to date!
Romantic dinner… with the kids?
A romantic dinner is of course essential, and it is not because we do not have the chance to go to the restaurant that it is ruined! Are the children at home? No matter! Feed them earlier and enjoy the evening for a romantic dinner. The important thing, really, is spending quality time with your sweetheart. We put the kids to bed, and we eat later. If they are older, we rent them a movie (and there are romantic movies for children too!), and we offer ourselves, at least, a little two hours alone…
You could opt for a caterer. The offer is, nowadays, interesting! In addition to treating yourself to a good dinner, you will make the happiness of a restaurant owner for whom the year has been more than difficult. Find out: some caterers also offer menus specially designed for Valentine's Day.
Reinventing the candlelight dinner
Certainly classic, the candlelight supper is still a must. However, you cantry to spice things up a bit, by changing the formula. For example, have a picnic in the living room, sitting on the floor (in scanty clothes…) Or prepare a sushi feast… in bed! Let's romance!
And the movie?
Listening to a romantic movie on Valentine's Day? It's up to you, but you have to remember that we spend a lot of time in front of screens, in general. Of course, there's nothing stopping you from getting in a romantic mood with your favorite movie. But take care, afterwards, to think outside the box!
Is a gift really necessary? Maybe it's better to make the most of the time we have together: it's up to you. There are many ways to show our loved one that we love and care about them. And yet, as Charles M. Schulz, the creator of Charlie Brown, said so well: “All we need is love… but a little chocolate, on occasion, does no harm to anyone! »
