Valentine’s Day at home: How to create a romantic atmosphere

If you’ve lived with a partner for a long time or if you’re still watching the pennies after an indulgent Christmas, then planning the perfect romantic night in can be the best way to show your loved one how much you care.

In this article, we’ll show you some of our top tips for creating a romantic environment at home for your very own staycation.

Set the table

Food is often cited as the key to people’s hearts, so it’s a good idea to start your romantic evening with dinner. Whether you’re lovingly cooking a homemade meal or if you’re ordering in to save on the washing up, mark the occasion by setting the table as if you were dining at a fancy restaurant.
