Get Your Valentine’s Day Romance On
February is fast approaching, and you know what they say: love is in the air. Here at Theme Night Wines, we certainly hope that love is the only thing in the air this year as Valentine’s Day fast approaches!
One of the best ways to make sure that love is the only thing in the air this year is by staying safe and celebrating the most romantic holiday social distance-style.
And, what better way to celebrate the holiday than to have an intimate time at home with a nice bottle of romantic wine for Valentine’s Day?
Below are just a few Valentine’s ideas on how you can make the most of your special night in 2021.
1. Have an Indoor Picnic
It’s still cold outside, and since indoor dining is off the menu, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to bring indoor dining to your living room? Set your living room up like a picnic, and you won’t even miss the feeling of being inside a restaurant!
Here’s how to have the best indoor date night that you and your loved one will be sure to cherish for years to come:
- Clear out the area, being sure to leave enough space to put a picnic blanket down.
- Lay a clean picnic blanket on the ground.
- String up some lights or place some candles around the blanket to give it a romantic ambience.
- Create a relaxing music playlist full of your favorite date night songs.
- Set up the meal picnic-style, with a cutting board and cheese, cutlery, plates, napkins, and a picnic basket filled with condiments and delicious foods.
Last, but certainly not least, get those wine glasses and tantalizing bottle of Our Night Wine ready. It’ll be sure to catch the dim lights and reflect back in a romantic, tempting way, setting you and your date up for the perfect indoor picnic.
2. Have a Couple’s Board Game
Bring your sexy back with a sexy couple’s board game! Just because you can’t take advantage of a social night out doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy an intimate setting full of games and fun. To have a couple’s board game for your Valentine’s Day date night, crank out the old board games.
Whether you’re in the mood for playing a traditional board game, like Scrabble, or are hoping to up the romance by playing a newer, more romantic game geared towards couples, such as The Ultimate Game for Couples, you can’t go wrong with a romantic game night.
3. Hire a Private Chef
Who says staying at home means you have to do everything yourself? Take the easy route this Valentine’s Day by hiring a private chef to come to your house and impress your date with the meal of a lifetime!
This is a great option for those who still want to change things up at the dinner table for date night but also want to keep the social distance.
While your private chef cooks your food in an engaging and tasty way, all you and your partner have to do is sip away at your glasses of wine and enjoy the moment.
4. Have a Romantic Dessert Board
Heart-shaped boxes of chocolates are popular for a reason, but why not crank it up a notch by making a romantic dessert charcuterie board? This Valentine’s Day idea is perfect for those who are admittedly more interested in sweets than anything else! Not to mention, Our Wine goes great with chocolate fondue and berries.
To make a fun, romantic dessert board, here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Make a list of your significant other’s favorite treats.
- Buy candies, chocolates, and other desserts ready-made at the store to save on time.
- Be sure to get a mixture of different desserts to add to the fun.
- Consider getting chocolate dips or other dips that pair well with the board.
- Maybe bake some cookies to add a personal touch.
- Pick a centerpiece or large bowl for the middle of your board, and arrange 5-7 different desserts in an assortment of heights and quantities to make it look thematic and exciting.
Have your wine glasses and bottle ready on the side for the ultimate dessert pairing! Your loved one will be sure to appreciate the time and effort that went into making such a memorable charcuterie board.
5. Plan a Small Outdoor Activity
If the above Valentine’s Day ideas aren’t enough to quench your need for the great outdoors, you can still plan a little outdoor activity for you and your partner. This year’s Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, making it especially great for going on a hike or cuddling in a blanket for two around a toasty fire pit.
Choosing the Perfect Wine for Valentine’s Day
We might be a little biased here at Theme Night Wines, but we think our bottle of Our Night wine is the perfect romantic wine for Valentine’s Day! Specifically tailored with the holiday of love in mind, Our Night is a delectable bottle of cabernet sauvignon that pairs well with the Valentine’s Day mood.
Imported from Northern Italy, Our Night is a deep red wine with glistening violet highlights that add to the romance in the room. This dry, velvety cabernet sauvignon comes with a punch of intense cherry and herbaceous hints that will send your tastebuds singing to the beat of even the most romantic tunes.
Pair Our Night wine with hearty foods like creamy pastas, tender steak, or even oysters for your main meal. Then, end your date night with a bang (pun intended) by sipping away as you and your loved one enjoy a dessert of chocolates, fruit, or other sweets.
Though 2021’s Valentine’s Day might be a little different than prior years, you can still have the date night of a lifetime. Make sure that love is the only thing in the air this year by staying home and safe with one of our Valentine’s ideas and a bottle of Our Night wine for Valentine’s Day!
