How To: Have a Great Valentine's Day at Home
February 11, 2013
These days it seems like everybody spends Valentine’s Day the same way by venturing out in the harsh winter weather just to squeeze into a packed restaurant where your fancy meal will cost half of your rent. This Valentine’s Day we have another idea for you: do your celebrating at home. If you are looking to wine and dine, you can find everything you need in the privacy of your own home while escaping the traffic, crowds and frigid weather.
Let your living room become the setting for your romantic evening and cuddle up to your Valentine in front of the fireplace. This gorgeous Paloform fireplace is cozier than any restaurant we know of.

With this gorgeous backdrop you can trade up those sky high heels and sexy dress, for this perfectly pink lingerie set. This Simone Perele number from Linea Intima is much sexier than anything you could get away with wearing out to dinner.

Nothing says ‘celebration’ more than a bottle of bubbly. This Veuve cooler is the official colour of Valentine’s day and is also the perfect holder for your champagne. So clink glasses with your special Valentine and let the bubbles go to your head!

If you’re not one for champagne, no need to worry. Simply pour your favourite red into an elegant decanter so your evening will have all the style and grace of fine dining.

Instead of a heavy meal why not keep things sweet and light this Valentine’s day. Forget about dirtying every bowl in the kitchen, serve up some easy to munch snacks in some fabulous serving dishes. These Elte dishes would look beautiful full of strawberries and chocolates.
