Entertaining Ideas

Valentine's Day 3 Ways

Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is that special time of year to show your appreciation for those you care about (and, of course, enjoy lots of chocolate and candy hearts!) Our friends at Table + Dine created three unique ways to make your celebration even more memorable for your friends, your partner and your kids!

01
Wine With Your Galentine

For those new to the concept, a galentine is that go-to girlfriend who always has your back. Coined by the incomparable Leslie Knope, Galentine’s Day is celebrated the day before Valentine’s on February 13 and showcases your love and appreciation for your BFFs.

This Galentine’s Day celebration is all about wine! We took a sweet and crisp rosé and served it from our unique Valencia decanter. Poured into our Tuscany Classics rosé wine glass or Valencia flute, it’s a bubbly and fun drink to give your girls. Send them home with a mini bottle of wine tied with a cute striped straw as a parting gift!

And have we mentioned this adorable sparkling wine glass floral arrangement? All you need is a few pink and white sprinkles and flowers inside an ice cream cone to create this stand-out piece of décor!

02
Dinner For Two

Plan a romantic meal with your sweetheart! It’s the little things that make this dinner so lovely: from the flower accents on your plate to the strawberry hearts topping your drinks. Our blush Trianna place setting captures the perfect tone for the night, especially when paired with our peach Valencia cocktail glasses, smoke flutes and Chelse Muse flatware. Complete the captivating ambiance with these kate spade new york Cannon Street votives and you have a beautiful tablescape for you and your significant other.

But don’t stop there: create a special cocktail for the two of you for extra romance. Prepared in our Tuscany Classics shaker, this sweet drink gets its dramatic effect from the dry ice that creates billowy smoke out of the glass. Cut your own strawberry hearts as a topper and propose a toast to your enduring love!

 

03
Crafts With Your Kids

Celebrate the little ones who stole your heart! Spend Valentine’s Day with the children in your life by crafting, playing games and enjoying sweets. Cut out a few felt hearts or make your own paper valentines to bring to school. For a tasty treat, we served sprinkled cupcakes and unicorn cookies on our Tin Can Alley plates.

Get their imaginations going with a few inventive games. Our Valentine’s day mini ornaments can be used in many unique ways. Tie each ornament around a ribbon and use it as a delightful charm for a to-go candy bag. Or use them as playing pieces for a friendly game of tic-tac-toe!

Lastly, create this deliciously cheerful grazing board for your kids and their friends to snack on. Our Textured Neutrals platter provides the perfect base for a medley of treats, including marshmallows, chocolate and candy. It’s a definite crowd-pleaser (and one that you can make for your partner or galentine, too!)
