The holiday to celebrate your special someone is a few weeks away, and while some of you might be itching to get out of the house, there are still plenty of us who would rather have a low-key Valentine’s Day at home. It’s no surprise that the C21 Red Shoe Realty team are big fans of spending time at home – we are very passionate about the magic of being home. With this passion, we decided to put together a guide for your perfect Valentine’s date night from the comfort of your home.
Step 01. Make Your Plans
Just because you’re celebrating at home doesn’t mean you get to wing your date night. You still need to put some effort in ahead of time. Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, which means you have a full day to fill with lovely activities. Take a moment to think about what your partner loves to do, eat, drink, and watch. Work together to plan a special day where you can celebrate your love and appreciation for one another.
Step 02. Pick Up Your Supplies
A few days before Valentine’s arrives, it’s time to grab your supplies. This includes food for dinner, any special drinks, a card, and/or a gift, and anything you need to complete your special plans.
If you need some meal ideas that you can make at home, here are some that we would recommend!
- Lobster Mac & Cheese
- Steakhouse Sheet Pan Dinner for Two
- Roast Chicken and Mushrooms with Red Wine Sauce
- Shrimp Scampi Risotto
Step 03. Kick-Off Your Celebration
The day is here, and you can make it special from the get-go. Start with breakfast in bed or a specialty coffee and a baked good from his or her favorite local spot. Then, enjoy a slow morning as you discuss the great day you have planned.
Step 04. Prepare Your Feast
When the evening rolls around, it’s time to make your special meal. Prepare your meal together and sip on your drinks of choice. Then, it’s time to dig in!
Step 05. Kick Your Feet Up
When dinner is done, it’s time to kick your feet up on the couch and relax. Check out these lists for the top movies to watch on the most popular streaming services:
