Tips for planning a romantic Valentine’s Day at home

See also

Valentine’s Day is typically a day for couples to have romantic meals in fancy restaurant, but sometimes staying in can be just as special as going out.

Having an indoor picnic, will allow the meal, if it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, without worries to the weather interfering. The meal can simple something as simple as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and fruit to more complicated like Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins. Adding candles and flowers can add to the romantic atmosphere.

Either during or before dinner writing notes to each other to read right before bed, can add a bit of romance to the night. It might be nice to write them the night before if more time is needed to express one’s feelings. Waiting to share the notes can build some excitement to the evening.

After eating create a blanket fort and watch movies. Use chairs, pillows, and blankets from inside the house to build a private place to bring a laptop or tablet, cuddle and watch movies or television shows.

End the night by listening to a playlist of romantic or special songs and dancing in the living room. This would also be a good time to read the notes that were written at dinner.
