Valentine’s Day Romantic Night In

Valentine's Day Romantic Night In: Fireside romantic three-course dinner, perfect for an intimate night in.

This month for our #YearOfFeasting, where we’re hosting 12 feasts in 12 months in an effort to up the fun factor around here, and be a little more intentional about making great connections with great people over great food, we kept things a little more intimate.  Since connecting with each other should always be at the top of our list our Valentine’s Day feast was a romantic dinner for two in front of the fire at home.

I thought it would nice and cozy in these winter months to set up dinner in front of the fire.  Keeping with the Scandi feel I’ve been loving these days, we kept things pretty neutral with just enough soft pink.

In front of the fire I set up a cozy little table for two.

To create a sweet Valentine feel, I filled some pretty lanterns with some heart fairy lights.

Above the table, and my favourite addition for the party, was a pretty hanging flower chandelier –see the tutorial on how to make it here.

On the table, a simple linen runner, white plates, and pretty cement heart placard holders –see how I made them here.

We started out with one of my favourite special drinks, kir royal.  It’s made of sparkling wine with a little cassis, black currant liqueur in it.  It’s sweet and fizzy and perfect for Valentine’s Day, especially with the perfect arrow stir sticks.

For our starter we tried a new recipe, which is always a lot of fun.  We made Delicious.net’s Bang Bang Shrimp.

Our’’s was a little on the mild side, so we added a little extra hot sauce for the bang bang. 😉

These were a perfect start to the evening and we really enjoyed them.

To make it a little more romantic, we made them in individual heart shape dishes.

And for a yummy side a caprese inspired salad of lettuce, mini bocconcini mozzarella balls, grape tomatoes, pesto, and balsamic reduction.  Simple and delicious.

This main was perfect for a cold and wintry night by the fire.

And then it was time for something sweet.  A cup of tea and heart shape pavlova.

This was a lovely ending to the dinner -since it’s nice and light.  I love pavlova with mixed berries.

We had such a nice afternoon of cooking.  While our stew cooked away we watched Breakfast At Tiffany’s -a classic.  I was surprised to find out my sweetie had never watched it.  I’ll be singing “Moon River” for days.  It really was  a perfectly romantic night.  It was fun to do something special for one another.  We had fun talking and planning our menu together, and spending time with each other in the kitchen.

I highly recommend a Valentine’s Day Night In.  Remember to share your own #YearOfFeasting photos with us on Facebook or Instagram, we’d love to see any of your parties.

With a cozy romantic dinner at home together with your Valentine, life really is a party!
