We’ve spent months apart and holding each other at arm’s length, thanks to lockdowns, social distancing and self-isolation. Now, it’s time to get close to the object of your affections and enjoy cozy Valentine’s celebrations this February. LifestyleGarden® offer a few ideas for how to romance your partner on February the 14th.
Unfortunately, we are still in the midst of a pandemic, so you may want to opt for an outdoor location for your romantic rendezvous but don’t let the February temperatures put the freeze on your date. Wrap up warm and go for a winter walk before heading back to cozy up with a cup of something hot and a comfy spot to snuggle up. Create the ultimate intimate setting with gorgeous seating, perfect for lounging, plus plenty of cushions and warm blankets to keep the chill off. Keep the lighting romantic with candles and lanterns or string up twinkling fairy lights that will come into their own once the sun sets. Outdoor seating sets, like the Cebu, with a large three-seater sofa and two sofa chairs, all adorned with chic charcoal cushions, provide a stylish place to nestle into. Plus, maintenance is at an absolute minimum with synthetic wicker outdoor furniture, so you don’t have to worry about taking time out of your relationship to keep your furniture looking good.
Sleep out under the stars
Ok, we’re not actually suggesting you spend the night in the open air without any cover – it is February after all – but picture a warm tent with the person you love, a roaring fire, tasty treats, marshmallows to roast, plus something nice to sip on. If you don’t fancy heading off to a rural campsite for an outdoor adventure, then pitch up in your back garden, light the firepit and get set for a romantic evening of star gazing and alfresco dining before rolling out the sleeping bags. Loungers are ideal for stretching out and looking skyward.
If the weather doesn’t play ball, don’t let rain dampen your plans, when you can still cuddle up under the canvas and set the mood with a star projector.
Create your own home cinema
Fancy avoiding a crowded cinema this year but love the idea of watching a film together? Then, set up your very own theatre at home or in your back garden – plus, this way you aren’t limited by whatever’s showing this month and can treat your date to an old classic or one of your favorites. Hey, you can even binge on a box set – it’s your night! Get the popcorn and snacks on standby, dim the lights and roll film!
If you want to recreate the VIP cinema experience, set up a sofa seating set, like the Barry set for maximum comfort and a truly indulgent evening. Make sure you’re still close enough to one another to put your arm around their shoulder during the movie.
