Create an easy and romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner at home! From what to serve to a charming table setting. We’re sharing all the details!
My husband and I love going out for a romantic dinner. There is nothing we love more than a quiet evening at a hip restaurant, chatting over delicious cocktails and food. BUT we never go out on Valentine’s Day!
Personally I think it’s the worst day to go out to dinner as it’s normally overpriced fixed menus and crowded. Valentine’s Day is actually a great day to make a delicious, romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at home!
Below I’m sharing some easy Valentine’s Day dinner recipes and a very charming table setting for a charming Valentine’s Day dinner!
What Should I Make for Valentine’s Day Dinner?
For a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, you want it to be different than the casual dinners you make during the weekday, but nothing too complicated and hard.
They’re cooked over a cast iron pan with some butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and go very well plated with the risotto. If you don’t have a cast-iron pan, I suggest buying one.
Not only will you have it for the rest of your life, but they’re also very affordable and we use ours all the time. Even for cakes!
The risotto is one pot and the easiest risotto you’ll ever make! Serve it with a bottle of rose and you have a very easy Valentine’s Day meal! Also, see our tips for serving wine!
