Ideas for a Valentine's Day Dinner PartyThe old saying the way to a mans heart is through his stomach well I think that holds true for women too! For Valentines Day try cooking an intimate dinner for two and see how happy your partner will be. In some cases a group of people for dinner will also be a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day. What a great way to shine, showing off your cooking and entertaining skills.
Three Simple Steps
Creating a dinner party for two or ten starts the same way, with a menu. First step is to review the space available for dinner. Is there room for a sit down dinner or would a buffet work better in your home or apartment. Second you want to develop a menu that won't keep you in the kitchen all night but at the table with your partner and friends. Third you want to plan a dessert that will be a grand finale to a fabulous evening or the beginning of a romantic night for two!
So let's start with the space, if you are planning a buffet the key would be to create a meal that does not require cutting with a knife. Items that work well are rice, grilled shrimp or beef kabobs, salad prepared with bite size pieces of lettuce and pre-dressed, baked rosemary potatoes, purred soups, baked fish, should not be cut but rather flaked with a fork. The choices are endless it all depends upon the pallet of the guest or guests.
Start prepping early in the day so that you have plenty of time to tidy up the place and clean yourself up with out stressing. Keep in mind even if you invited a group of people over your partner will still be looking at you and thinking about how wonderful you are and what time the guests will be leaving. Set the atmosphere as warm and romantic as possible, fund upbeat music and candles work great. Remember its Valentines Day and it should feel that way for your guests or one special guest!
