Because romance is in the air, I got inspired to write something romantic for your Valentine's weekend right behind the cozy walls of your home. It will actually be a crazy weekend on the road with all the crowd drawn to same places, spending a ton of money, just like it's a 3-day weekend sale to all shopping malls around town. If you would ask me, I'd like to stay at home on these dates and brave not the frantic celebration especially that it falls on a weekend.
Staying indoor would probably be the best love gift for all. If only everybody will take this advice seriously. And while it's just regular that we spend dinner with our lovey dovey on a weekday, why not try these little ideas of mine to make it an instant special event rather than an ordinary dinner.
Here's my top 6 ideas to pull-off a Romantic dinner with your Valentine minus the hustle of going out.
SET THE TABLE
Grab your best table cloth and clear your dinner or coffee table. Use your best silverwares and glasswares. If you have space outdoor, like a balcony or small garden, that would be a more fantastic location to setup your dinner table.
USE ROMANTIC DECORATIONS
This isn't too much to have. Grab a sweet scented candle, or make use of your non-blinkers white or yellow string lights

SET THE MOOD
This is inexpensive. All you need is your cellphone to play romantic music. Gather the ultimate cheesy playlist. You'll get all the love vibe from Spotify or Musipop.

CHOOSE YOUR DRINK
To have a romatic feel, it is best to open a bottle of wine to have that fine-dining feel just like you're in Antonio's in Tagaytay. Also, it's best to prepare water and add lemon for a nice touch. Put it in a pitcher to avoid running for it from the fridge in the middle of the meal.
Dessert is always a good idea. Ask your man to buy you that best dessert you've been craving about. Or just a simple dessert but still make the night a lot sweeter. That will be the cherry on top on your romantic, cozy and traffic-free V-date!
