With a full household to care for and late nights at work on this month’s calendar, Valentine’s Day may need to be a quiet, relaxing affair this year. Rather than dealing with traffic and packed restaurants, you and your partner can spend time together in your new Atlanta home
from The Providence Group, sharing a special meal, enjoying a unique activity, and exchanging gifts to celebrate the day of love. Below are a few suggestions for an at home Valentine’s Day to remember.
Cook a Romantic Meal Together
There’s nothing like eating a home-cooked meal after a long day, and what’s better, you can call on your in-house sous chef for help! A romantic Italian pasta night, including cacio e pepe or spaghetti marinara with garlic bread and red wine, is a simple choice if you don’t want to be in the kitchen for too long. Spanish paella is another great option that comes together in under an hour. Or, if you’re looking for something to wow your significant other, a seafood dish like lobster risotto or linguini with clams will do the trick!

Create a Valentine-Themed Cocktail
A custom Valentine-themed cocktail is just what you need to elevate your dinner at home. From red wine milkshakes to amaretto sours and blood orange mocktail spritzers, you’ll get the night going strong with these fantastic recipes. Buy ingredients like a heart-shaped ice mold, red straws, maraschino cherries, fresh strawberries, edible flowers, and your preferred alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks for a fun night with your special someone. This can also double as your activity for the night by making this a competition to see who can make the best Valentine’s Day cocktail
Pamper Your Partner With a Spa Night
Does your partner love spa treatments? An at home Valentine’s Day spa night with a fresh cucumber and charcoal facial, soothing lavender bubble bath, and rose petal foot massage is the perfect thing to come home to. Purchase their favorite candles, lotions, and perfumes to embrace the luxury vibe, and put on classical music or jazz instrumentals to help them get in a relaxing mood.

your partner will adore.
Plan a Romantic Movie Marathon
Now that streaming video options are plentiful, access to some of the best new and classic movies is just a click away! Grab the popcorn and settle on the couch for an evening filled with your favorite romance movies and rom-coms. Beloved favorites like The Notebook, Dirty Dancing, and Pretty Woman, modern films like Always Be My Maybe, Bros, and La La Land, and holiday-themed films like Valentine’s Day can be purchased or streamed online for your entertaining evening at home.
Have a Friendly Game Night
Who doesn’t love some healthy game night competition for an exciting Valentine’s date night at home? Choose from your favorite laugh-out-loud card games like Cards Against Humanity© and Uno Remix©, interactive games like Twister© or Jenga©, or turn on your Nintendo Switch™️ and embark on a collaborative adventure with a two-person game like It Takes Two
Camp out on the Patio or in the Backyard
An at home Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to spend the day indoors. Enjoy your entire house and use the outdoor areas, like the spacious deck or backyard, to watch the sunset. Bring cozy blankets, a picnic dinner, and some wine for an evening under the stars
with your favorite Valentine. Consider creating a bonfire and dining on warm drinks and snacks if it gets too chilly. This idea could also help couples with children or pets have more privacy on Valentine’s Day.
