8 Ideas for a love-ly at-home Valentine’s Day
Have you made a plan for Valentine’s Day? The time is here! With limited opportunities to get out and celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, why not celebrate a romantic day at home? Here are some ideas to get you started:
1. Start the day right with breakfast in bed
Many brand-new homes at Sterling Ranch are studded with gourmet kitchens, and February 14 is an ideal day to use this space to whip up a special breakfast and fresh-brewed coffee for the one you love. Nothing says “I love you” quite like breakfast in bed.
2. Shower with flowers
Well, don’t shower with flowers literally (though a bubble bath with rose petals does sound romantic); rather, show you care by offering your partner an abundance of flowers. Pick up a beautiful bouquet from the Safeway at Roxborough Marketplace (adjacent to Prospect Village at Sterling Ranch) or schedule a home delivery for a stunning medley of blooms from the good folks at BloomBarCo.
3. Let ’em know you care: decorate with love notes
Show your love through the written word! Hang notes around the home that express what you are grateful for in others. These notes can go anywhere: the bathroom mirror, the picture frame hanging in the hallway, the refrigerator door or atop the washing machine. For a special touch, use pink or red paper cut to heart shapes.
4. Take a hike
The amazing climate in Colorado means every day is a good day for a hike, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Head to the great outdoors with your loved one for a winter walk in the woods — the options are plentiful near Sterling Ranch.
5. Get cheesy
Did someone say pizza? Heart-shaped pizzas are a seasonal hit, and for good reason — they are fun! Splurge for delivery from Papa John’s, buy ahead from Papa Murphy’s or make your own in the aforementioned gourmet kitchen. Don’t forget to add pepperoni for a splash of festive color.
6. Dress to the nines
Maybe you can’t go out, but that’s no reason to skip the fanfare of date night. Plan a special dinner and dress up for the occasion. Don’t forget to dress the dining table as well — bring out the fine dishes and silverware, line the table with a beautiful cloth and light a few taper candles as a centerpiece.
7. Cozy up by the fire
Have a fireplace? Collect blankets from throughout the home to build a love nest in front of the flickering flames. Nestle in for a read aloud, play a game, or snuggle up for a Netflix binge.
