This Valentine's Day, Why Not Skip The Restaurant?

This Valentine's Day, why not skip the restaurant and create a romantic dinner at home instead? It can be equally special, and at times, even more so, to enjoy a quiet and intimate dinner at home. Here are some suggestions for setting up a "restaurant" at home:

To set the mood, you can buy the Party Place Dinner In-A-Box, which has everything you need to create a beautiful tablescape with minimal effort. Play soft background music to create a soothing ambiance. Plan the menu based on your preference. If you enjoy cooking, search Pinterest for some doable recipes that are different from your usual fare. If you want to cook but wouldn't mind taking a few shortcuts, try purchasing prepared food from your local grocery store or using a meal-prep service. If you don't want to have anything to do with meal prep, you can try a restaurant delivery service like GrubHub or DoorDash.

Don't forget dessert. You can purchase something special and decadent from a store or bake something yourself.

A few other things to keep in mind: Although you may be very accustomed to eating at home, remember that this is a date. Relax and take your time over your meal, hold hands, gaze into each other's eyes, and even play footsie under the table. Most importantly, you want to have a conversation. Our Party In-A-Box provides you with games or conversation starters to help you relax, connect, and focus on each other.
