February 14th doesn’t always have to be a day of fancy five-star restaurants & heart-filled holiday cards. This Valentine’s Day shower your sweetie with romantic, unforgettable gestures right at home. From a charming home-cooked spread to a few shared giggles, let the little moments make the greatest impact this holiday.
Add a Touch of LOVE to Dinner
One of our personal favorites, Lionel Richie’s Love collection boasts beautiful, glossed bone china plates perfect for adding a pop of life to your table. Inspired by the sentiment behind every meal, Love, this tableware compliments any home-cooked meal.
A few extra suggestions? Make the meal an experience from beginning to end – prepare the table and the meal together…and leave the mess for later. Don’t forget some spunky candles (we used the Loop Candelabra from Black+Blum) and table pieces to set the mood just right.
P.S. We think Pan-Fried Trout looks deliciously amazing on these plates. An easy and a sweet dish, all you need is fresh trout, white grapes, butter, amaretto, and brown sugar.
- Heat the amaretto, white grapes (cut in half), butter and a little brown sugar in a saucepan until you get a nice glaze.
- Pan-fry the trout with the skin on top for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Turn over to and cook for 3 more minutes with your glaze.
Ditch the box of chocolates and opt for something with a little more pop! You’ll want to pucker up to these sweet & sour gummy lips in delicious natural flavors of Watermelon, Strawberry and Bubble Gum.
Kissably-soft and chewy, these sugar lips are dusted in sweet & sour sugar crystals for a lip-smackin’ mouthwatering smooch sensation.
*Made with pectin, these gummies are gelatin-free, perfect for vegans and vegetarians!*
P.S. This might be a fun spot to hide a shiny, round symbol of forever if you catch our drift.
