Make your Valentine’s Day an affair to remember with some creative entertaining ideas for your romantic night. For your significant other or a group of close friends, a thoughtful menu filled with signature cocktails, savory recipes and sweet treats will be much appreciated by your loved ones.
This occasion calls for a little indulgence and a touch of romance, so why not serve a cocktail like The Blood Orange Mimosa, made with Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer and champagne?
For a non-alcoholic version, try Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer topped with Sparkling Water. Add the finishing touch by garnishing either option with fresh raspberries.
Preparing a romantic home-cooked meal for special someone is the perfect way to show how much you care. To avoid spending all of your time in the kitchen, stick to flavorful recipes that can be prepped in advance or prepared in a flash. A menu of baby spinach salad with hearts of palm, followed by herb-roasted fish and some simple sides would ensure a stress-free experience. Keep it light to save room for a molten chocolate cake for two.
Or, host a dessert-only themed party for a group of single friends! Gather an intimate party around pots of chocolate fondue with small plates of strawberries, sliced bananas, marshmallows, pound cake and chocolate brownie bites. Guests may each have their own fork for dipping, but the shared dish certainly encourages fun conversation and interaction.
For your Valentine’s Day fête, love should be all around you! To engage all of your senses, use décor, music, and lighting to bring romance into the room.
While red roses are traditionally the chosen flower of the holiday, any pretty bloom in a pink tone, ranging from bright fuchsia to pale blush, would be a lovely alternative.
Get inspired with your Valentine’s Day playlist by filling it with romantic or playful love songs by your favorite artists. Let your loved ones bathe in the glow of candlelight. Place unscented votives of different heights on your dinner table and around the room to cast a warm ambiance.
