Happy Valentine’s Day – Dinner on the Deck

February 14th is a day for love. Many couples spend hundreds of dollars on fancy dinners, flowers, and weekend getaways. Some even spend more to buy a diamond and get down on one knee for a memorable marriage proposal. You don’t have to spend too much money to have a romantic dinner for two, especially if you have a backdoor haven where you can escape. A backyard deck is the perfect spot to create the right ambiance for the most popular day to show love. Contact a trusted Montclair deck builder if you need help getting your oasis in good shape. They can construct a deck to enjoy your lovely Valentine’s dinner.

Tips to Create a Romantic Space for Dinner on Your Deck

Once your new deck is built, turn it into your new favorite romantic spot with these tips:

  1. Turn on mood lighting. There is no perfect setting without the proper lighting. Depending on the weather, candles make the best mood lighting. You can choose jar candles or tea lights. Fairy lights are a popular way to add lighting to your deck. They add a bit of magic to the evening. Many additional ideas on the Internet, too, will let you use your creativity.
  2. Bring in the flowers. Roses are the go-to for Valentine’s Day romance. You can also consider winter herbs such as rosemary, thyme, parsley, or sage that you place in planters around the area. Other types of flowers you can consider include cyclamen, baby roses, red amaryllis, and primroses. Place cut flowers in vases on your table to get the place setting right.
  3. Gather warm blankets. It can get chilly in February. Pull out some warm blankets to cozy up with after dinner. You can watch the evening sky and enjoy a chat without getting cold. Don’t forget cushions for extra comfort.
  4. Plan a special menu. Now is the time to fix a special menu. Since you are already on the deck, why not grill steaks, chicken, or tuna steaks? Add a baked potato and salad to the main menu. Don’t forget dessert! Choose something your significant other rarely gets to enjoy. This will make the evening even more special. Remember, that part of the menu should also include a romantic table setting.
  5. Play some amorous music. Top off the event with a playlist of favorite love songs. This backdrop of soft romantic music will add to the ambiance and allow you to step out on the ‘dance floor.’
