Valentine’s Day at Home

eHow Home Blog

So it’s nearly Valentine’s Day and you still have no idea what to do for your sweet. If you’re thinking of making dinner at home, but are worried you can’t make it special enough for the occasion, don’t fret. There are plenty of little touches you can do to create a romantic evening that will rival any night on the town.

For starters, get some holiday plates to mark the day. The above set from Sur La Table is great for small plate dishes and shouts love in a playful way.

Too intimidated to cook? Even take-out seems special when served with something cute and thoughtful. And nobody will say no to a yummy treat presented with flare – even if it’s not homemade.

But if you’re feeling slightly more adventurous (and who doesn’t love someone who attempts to cook for them), you can always attempt an easy dessert like chocolate covered strawberries to make your Valentine swoon.

The addition of scented candles, mood music, fresh flowers and a bottle of vino should make for a very romantic evening. The best part, no reservations required.

What are your Valentine’s Day plans?
