If you want to skip crowded restaurants and movie theaters on Valentine’s Day, there’s no better place to celebrate than your new Sierra Vista home. Doing so can be incredibly romantic. Following are some ideas to make it special. (Pro tip: Send the kids to Grandma’s house).
Make a Romantic Meal
Nothing says love like preparing a meal together in your beautiful new kitchen. Choose a recipe you both love or try something new. Set the mood with romantic music and a glass of wine while you cook.
Picnics Are for Lovers
Picnics are romantic and your game room or family room is perfect for an indoor one. Lay out a blanket, grab a bottle of wine, prepare a charcuterie board, dip some strawberries and get ready to dine and snuggle.
Open Bottles of Wine
Get out your wedding toasting glasses and arrange a mini-tasting event at home. Each of you choose a favorite vintage, cover up the labels and see how well you know each other by guessing what it is.
Sweet Movie MarathonTurn your media room into romance central. Pick your favorite films to watch together. They don’t need to be romantic just something not created for kids. Set up a cozy movie area with blankets, pillows and popcorn.
Send a Love Letter
Write love letters to each other. Share your feelings, memories and dreams for the future. Exchange the letters and read them aloud to each other over a candlelit dinner.
Romantic Song and Dance
Create a special playlist of songs that mean something to both of you. Curl up on the couch together to listen and reminisce or clear some space and enjoy a private dance.
If you are both of an artistic bent, unleash your creativity. Paint, draw or craft together. If you enjoy writing, agree on a romantic theme then take turns adding a sentence or paragraph. Read the finished product out loud.
The Lovely Stars
When the stars align, romance is in the air, so why not grab some blankets and view them from your patio? Set up a telescope or just try to decide if that light in the sky is a star, planet or satellite.
