3 steps on how to ‘Wine and Dine’ this Valentine’s Day

tablevdayA slap up meal on Valentine’s Day is a great way to show that special someone how much you like them. It’s pretty easy to get carried away with elaborate meal plans and tricky recipes from Pinterest, but we think keeping it simple with a few romantic touches is the best way to ensure that this Valentine’s Day is a night to remember.

Our simple three step Valentine’s Day plan will allow you to concentrate on wooing your Valentine instead of worrying about burning your dinner!

Step one: Set the mood with a beautiful dining table

On Valentine’s Day it’s the little touches that count, go the extra mile to show your Valentine they’re loved. The quickest way to create a romantic atmosphere is candles. You could even theme your table around Valentine’s Day – we love the Emma Bridgewater Pink Hearts range.


Step two: Cook a fabulous meal for two

You know what they say, food is the way to a mans heart (ahem, or a woman’s heart, everyone loves food!) Wow you lover with a candle-lit dinner for two. Find the perfect recipe for love over at Waitrose


Step three: Pop the Prosecco

Celebrate your love by popping a bottle of prosecco – the perfect way to toast to your undying love for each other…We love Sophie Dahl’s Valentine’s Day cocktail that adds a touch of rose syrup to your bubbles to give it that ‘je ne sais quoi’. Grab a bottle of bubbles from Perfect Cellar who have a range of great quality fine wine.
