This Valentine’s Day plan a romantic dinner outdoors and let Mother Nature set the tone for your night!
PLAN YOUR ROMANTIC DINNER OUTDOORS
Check the weather! Dress accordingly and if sprinkles are predicted, be sure to set up under a covered area so that you can still create your own sparks!
LIFE OUTDOORS IS LIFE FULLY LIVED
Soak up the stars and lay out blankets + pillows on the lounge chairs! For this part of the evening, have some hot chocolate waiting for you in insulated Swig cups… that way, you can make your beverage hours ahead and can focus on getting primped!
(Nerdy tip: Download an app on your phone such as Stargazer if you want to look up the names of the constellations and planets above you!)
SET THE MOOD
Create your own playlist with romantic songs including your first dance song, first date song, or others that are important to the two of you.
Light candles on the table, around the pool, around the loungers… the more, the better! We love our orchid scented candles which have a naturally romantic scent, and when the wax has burnt the cement vessel becomes a gorgeous planter!
Make sure to have some fresh lumber on hand for the firepit or the fireplace!
SET THE… TABLESCAPE
When setting the table, layer your placemats for texture, and remember to place heavy items on top so the wind doesn’t blow away your romantic dinner outdoors. Place natural greenery on the table, and in the center place a flower arrangement or tall lanterns for extra romance.
We love using this Melaboo plate set for a romantic dinner outdoors because it’s breakage-resistant, yet looks just like a delicate ceramic! (Fancy meets functional!)
SIT BACK & ENJOY!
We hope you have a fun + romantic outdoor dinner for Valentine’s Day with your honey!
