Alright men, this one’s for you. It’s a few days before Valentine’s Day and we can bet quite a few of you have still do not have any Valentine’s Day dinner ideas. Most likely by now, the reservation times are filled and you’re facing a potentially upset significant other. Instead of spending the next two hours calling the hostess to convince her to book you a table, plan a Valentine’s Day date night your wife or girlfriend will never be expecting. Plan a romantic at home Valentine’s Day dinner right in your own kitchen.
Here are a few tips on how to plan the perfect meal:
Choose the Perfect Spot
An at home date night located in your kitchen of course makes the most sense! Not only is it a comfortable spot for both you and your partner, but a kitchen is literally designed to be your ideal place to hang out! From seating to lighting, each element comes together to create an optimal eating and cooking space. If you’re feeling adventurous invite your date to come watch you make the meal! Chances are she’ll love to eye up that lasagna going into your Wolf built-in oven.
Enhance your kitchen design’s elegance by adding a few elements of charming decor. Pick up a few bouquets of roses at the store and strategically place them throughout the kitchen. They don’t have to be red! Choose a rose color that complements your kitchen. A kitchen with blue accents may look best with a few white roses.
Cooking her a homemade meal not only allows you to finally have an excuse to use your new gas range and wall oven, but it shows her that you care. Taking the time to plan and execute a thoughtful dish will make her appreciate the effort you spent on this evening. Not sure what to cook? Click here for a few Valentine’s Day dinner recipes.
Clean Up Crew
We know the old saying goes, “who ever cooked the meal shouldn’t have to clean up”. However, on Valentine’s Day of all days it’s a great idea for you to take charge of the clean up. A well-designed kitchen should be easy to clean up. Large farmhouse sinks give plenty of space for washing dishes, and a concrete countertop can be wiped up easily. And as an added bonus, cleaning up is basically like another Valentine’s Day present. However, don’t forget the diamond earrings and chocolate!
Enjoy Your Time Together
One of the top benefits of having Valentine’s Day dinner in your own kitchen is that you are able to enjoy the peace and quiet you might not be able to find at a restaurant. It truly is just the two of you enjoying the night together. Nothing gets more romantic than spending quality time together in the comfort of your own kitchen.
