As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, we look for ways to show that special someone how much we care. To keep that relationship healthy (and the sparks flying!) it’s important to prioritize time together, all year long.
Try establishing a regular date night! Date night doesn’t have to mean an expensive night on the town; you can create a cozy tête-à-tête at home at the cost of just a little time and effort.
Here are some of our best tips for date night success. Enjoy the night— and each other!
Make it a party (of two!)
What makes a party special? In many cases, it’s the novelty of a truly festive atmosphere. Treat your night in the way you would a bigger party, and decorate with some items to transport your home into an intimate escape. Be true to you: if you love to go over the top with balloons, confetti, banners, then the sky’s the limit. If you’re more subdued, go for a themed centerpiece or fresh flowers, color coordinate your tablecloth, napkins and dishes… whatever feels fun and ‘special’ for you and your loved one. Need some inspiration? Party stores, dollar stores, and craft stores usually have plenty of displays featuring ways to dress up your place for a themed night in.
Dress the part
Just because you’re not stepping out on the town doesn’t mean you have to dress down. When you look good, you feel good— and nothing is more romantic than confidence. Put your best foot forward and wear something to catch your partner’s eye and make the night special.
Delight the senses
When it’s time to eat, choose a meal that appeals to your senses of sight, taste, and smell. Bumble Bee SuperFresh Premium Frozen Seafood makes it easy to recreate a restaurant quality seafood experience at home. Their premium fish fillets are chef-prepped with all natural ingredients and come with their own baking parchment paper pouch; the shrimp cook quickly in a skillet with included seasonings. Going from freezer to table in 20 minutes or less, it’s no mess, no fuss— but can be easily and elegantly upgraded by following these menu ideas and wine pairings.
Set the mood
Dim the lights and light some candles. Lay out a blanket by the fire and put on a chill, romantic playlist. Unplug from technology and focus on the one you’re with. Pour the wine!
Always leave room for dessert
