Celebrate no matter what!
Despite limitations on Valentine’s Day demanding nearly unprecedented attention and creativity during a pandemic, it’s still worth it even if it doesn’t look the same as in the past years. The most popular thing for couples to do on Valentine’s Day, is to celebrate by eating out. It’s a special day to take a break from the monotony of everyday life relationships, so this year calls for extra effort to make it special. So we are here to help you out explore romance and figure out ways to celebrate safely.
So what if you can’t go out on a fancy restaurant or even on a romantic getaway with your significant other? This doesn’t mean you don’t get to find a really good excuse to spend a proper Valentine’s day with your loved one! Your wedding planner has your back of course, and we definitely can help you to set the right mood for your big day with a couple of ideas even if we are from a distance.
Valentine’s day - Send the message!
Words of affirmation are the ones that get our relationship going. Start the day with a couple of love notes around the house. If you don’t live together you can always text, the appropriate messages that will set the right tone for the day. You can even start a journal with a new love letter addressed to him / her every here. A kind like a yearly renewal of vows!
Spend quality time together
Ok planning for romantic dinners is what usually couples do on the day. But if you’re craving just for someone’s presence you can go ahead and enjoy each other anywhere in your house. How about breakfast in bed? Or a nice hot shower together? You can gift each other with sexy lingerie, bedroom wear or luxury bath items and pamper yourselves staying in. It’s all about the physical touch.
It can be so easy to take your special someone for granted in everyday life, so it is important to specifically demonstrate to your partner how special they are to you. Take some time to consider what would make your partner laugh and would be funny to do together. If you make an effort to acknowledge your partner’s needs, we promise you this will be contagious.
We can suggest a living room campsite, backyard wine tasting, balcony coziness, at-home spa or gazing at the stars together on the rooftop of your building. You won’t need too much, just a good organization and of course the wine bottle opener! ☺
Acts of service – perfect Valentine’s day
Cooking or not, we got your back. It’s always a great idea to cook a meal for your significant other. No need to worry if your cooking skills haven’t improved, since ordering in or picking food up is a nice idea, and this way you will be able to focus more on the ambiance and the decoration of the dinner setup.
Of course flowers and candles set the romantic note but also having an idea of how to set up your table is also important. Here is a graph from Real Simple magazine.
Casual Table Setting Instructions
- Lay the placemat on the table.
- Put the dinner plate in the middle of the placemat.
- Place the salad plate on top of the dinner plate.
- If you’re starting with a soup course, place the soup bowl on top of the salad plate. If you’re not remove also the spoon.
- Lay a napkin to the left of the charger or go wild with the various setups you’ve seen us prepare so far in our events.
- To the left of the plate, place the fork on the napkin.
- On the right of the plate, place the knife closest to the plate and then the spoon.
- Directly above the knife, place the water glass.
- To the right and slightly above the water glass, place the wine glass or a glass for another beverage.
We are firm believers that when you decide to go extra on the table, then even your food tastes better and the whole culinary experience becomes unique!
Good music vibes
Preparing for him or her a special valentine’s love song list is important but if your hands are full, we got you covered, since we have prepared for you a Valentine’s playlist along with Nikos Xatziioannidis.
Don't forget the drinks!
If you’re comfortable you can create some palomas but even some bubbly will do after or before your dinner plans. Let yourself go, say words that everyday routine don’t allow you to. Focus in the moment and enjoy each other!
